Flip with Jared Lichtin
Jared Lichtin joined us this week to give us some great information about himself and his podcast, Flip with Jared Lichtin.
Jared, as you will learn is an attorney that has been entrepreneurial minded since he was young. OK, he’s still young.
Jared started with a fascination for Real Estate Investing and flipping houses and learned a lot from the website Bigger Pockets, what he describes as the Facebook for Real Estate Investors.
Jared explained that his Why was ultimately Freedom. The Freedom to do what he wants when he wants.
Tips for people that want to get into Flipping:
- Organize your time wisely – He mentioned Jeff Sanders and his 5 AM Miracle as being an important tool.
- Understand your market – network with others in the industry in your target area – Realtors, Lenders, Closing Agents.
- Understand the Processes – Know the buying and selling process, the lending process, etc.
Jared shared that his fear of making not making any money, a being limited financially made him delay his quitting. His failure being that he should have quit earlier.
One suggestion Jared offered was doing what he calls “Practice Quitting”! – Take some scheduled time off from work, a PTO day, and pretend you are quitting and working for yourself that day. See how much you can do on your own – with 24 hours of your time.
The most important thing are the 24 hours in front of you”
Jared mentioned a great video by Gary Vaynerchuk about Monday Morning where he discusses people that just walk around lifeless and complaining about things. Gary Vaynerchuck says to Make Monday Morning Your Bitch!
