Maybe you’ve heard this, maybe you haven’t…
It takes 110% of a jet’s rated power JUST to get its wheels off the ground.
At that point, it’s only going 160mph but needs the FULL power of its engines, plus more.
But when that same jet gets to 10,000 feet altitude, the pilot throttles the power to 70%, BUT now the plane is CRUISING at 600 mph.
I’ve been in multiple start-ups and in multi-million-dollar businesses.
What I’ve witnessed is (almost) universally true in business (and life):
Starting is the hardest point.
Trust me, once you get over that “hump” of starting and getting a flow going…
It gets a LOT easier.
But to get past this “little hump” is the trouble.
So what do you do?
Do you keep pushing and pushing doing the same thing over and over again?
That would be—in my opinion—dum.
Edison didn’t keep doing the SAME experiment over and over again.
As soon as one test failed, he tried something new, something (slightly) different.
To my email list, I asked this question:
“What are your struggles?”
One said that he’s not getting anywhere with his cold-calling lead gen.
He laid out his process; His script, how his VA’s call, etc.
I took a look.
I saw a few mistakes I knew were the cause of his struggles.
So I gave him some adjustments, mainly having to do with his list (which is 80% of the battle).
The adjustment I gave him was VERY small… but I’ve seen other investors completely change their success around with it.
Look… the point of this wasn’t to talk about a specific tactic.
The point of it was to say this:
Immediate success RARELY happens out of the gate.
It takes lots of tries — of DIFFERENT tactics and strategies.
I want to give you an eBook.
It lays out ALL my screw-ups when I started.
I’ve been in real estate since 2015.
I made a lot of screw-ups. I learned from them. I was like Edison, making all these “tests” to see what worked and what didn’t (except he did 1000 experiments!). Now I’ve built off-market wholesaling/flipping operations in St. Louis, Indianapolis, and even South Florida.
