Knock, knock. Who’s there? Commercial Lending. Commercial who??!!!
Exactly. In a world where lending is so hard to find, or even non existent nowadays, I’m going to share with you a few lending sources for your commercial deals. But first, let’s catch up on a quick update in the commercial real estate market today…so watch on, fellow investors!
One of the greatest quotes I’ve heard…and this one is from Mike Collier from www.getrichsteady.com….#1 business coach in his circuit, with 35 years of experience in the industry, among marketing and branding as well as performing corporate turnarounds…Mike has done it all. He does have a favorite hat though: entrepreneurship! Yes, indeed, something that we can ALL relate to tonight, whether we are in the real estate industry or not, as entrepreneurs, we can all appreciate some GREAT nuggets on networking effectively (without technology!) & developing an impactful elevator speech.
What are some of the nuggets that Mike passed along this evening?
3 Things to keep in mind when creating your elevator speech:
> WIIFM: What’s in it for me? In other words, what’s in it for them….not making your elevator speech self serving, all about you, would be huge…focus on what your audience is looking for & less on you…
>> Create curiosity – create enough teaser material that the audience wants you to to continue to elaborate after you have pitched your elevator speech.
>>> Place them in your business or with your sales product, as if they are already your client, when possible
5 Things to look for when evaluating a business opportunity/partnership/alliance:
> Hidden Assets
>> Overlooked Opportunities
>>> Underperforming Activities
>>>> Undervalued Relationships
>>>>> Underutilized Distribution Channels
……..It’s not about closing a transaction, it’s truly about relationship selling: it’s a process, not an event; we don’t look at everybody as a customer, not as a commodity…..but rather a relationship. There is no substitute for 1 on 1 human contant…hence, with all the technology that we have, relationships can never be replace the real deal…according to Mike…opportunities walk by us EVERY DAY; it’s whether or not we act upon it or not.
And there you have it….from the great & amazing Mike Collier….catch more of Mike @ www.getrichsteady.com / firstname.lastname@example.org
Until then everyone, happy investing & happy (video) bloggin!
MAB also stands for…the Mark Anthony Bates…
Behind every SUCCESSFUL speaker, is the mastermind of their successes and growth…
Even though Mark Anthony does not consider himself the genius behind the seamless, confident, motivating speaker up on that stage before the hundreds of audiences, whether it is in the real estate speaker circuit, internet marketing, social media, health industry, there is accountability behind those great successes that speak before us.
No matter what industry we are in, behind every great successful ENTREPRENEUR, lies an AMAZING THE “Coach of Coaches”, such as THE Mark Anthony Bates.
What a fantastic feeling it is to be hanging out with Mark Anthony on this amazing day in April, right in California’s capital: Sacramento.
Where do we begin? It is easy to talk about attending seminar after seminar & slamming coaching programs & software programs in our armory of investing tools….but there it is really the action that backs up the intention, according to Mark Anthony, because without action, talk is cheap.
The core question is this: What are you doing to back up the real estate seminars that you are attending, the coaching programs that you have paid for…..that is, where actions speak louder than words; being able to take this to the next level….whether it is following & listening to what your coach is saying, implementing the strategies that they teach at the bootcamps, or following up with the connections that you made at the seminars…..you need to be accountable for the responsibilities that fall behind every intention.
So before you travel to that next seminar, please ask yourself, what tools do you have at home that will propel you to the next level in your real estate business or hold you accountable to attain that the goal that you set yourself for when you made that resolution back in the beginning of 2010…four months later…with the great & amazing real estate market where it is at & the abundance of opportunities that we have before us…there is ENOUGH for everyone at the table!
…Thank you Mark Anthony for taking the time to be with us & sharing your knowledge & expertise to enhance our businesses & entrepreneurial SPIRITS!
Until next time, everyone, happy investing & happy blogging!
