If you have looked for and found one or more real estate investing mentors, you may be wondering, ?What next? How can I get the most from this real estate mentoring relationship?? The answer is, quite simply, give the most!
It?s strange but true, the relationships we typically get the most out of in life are those we put the most effort into, and your relationship with your real estate investing mentors will be no different.
Be prepared to go out of your way to be helpful to your real estate investing mentors, and you will be amazed at what happens. Whenever I have mentored someone, it has been my experience that the more they put in, the more they got back. If they were especially helpful and generous with their time, they not only learned more quickly, but they also achieved their goals much faster.
Let me give you an example. Close acquaintances of mine, a couple, had been looking for real estate investing mentors for quite some time before they asked me. I gladly agreed, and we decided to work on a rehab project together. Using my expertise, I would buy a house that needed rehab. Using their expertise, they would rehab the house. We would then rent it out, holding it in an LLC.
That?s exactly what happened. They did everything I asked of them, and then some. Not only did they complete the rehab in a timely manner, they did a fantastic job. They learned by watching closely how I acquired the house for far below market value. They learned, because that?s why they were looking for real estate investing mentors in the first place.
They also watched and learned how to get the house rented, and how to properly manage the rental. They can now do all of this on their own, and I?m sure they will. They learned because they started out looking for real estate investing mentors with the right mindset- they had the will to work hard!
