409: Giving Yourself Permission to Go BIGGER: the "Bluefishing" Mentality with Steve Sims
Today's a special episode featuring the author of a book we can't get enough of: Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen by the man, the myth, the legend - Steve Sims. Who is Steve, anyway? Well, he's a former bricklayer and bouncer-turned-entrepreneur who uses a unique mindset and blend of skills to creates once-in-a-lifetime experiences for billionaire clients. Experiences like: getting married by the Pope in the Vatican, having a private dinner at the feet of Michaelangelo's David statue, or going on an underwater tour of the Titanic shipwreck. And here's the thing: as you'll hear in this episode, Steve's not a silver-spoon, high society type. He's just a regular guy who chooses to think and act differently, consistently. And after this episode, you'll be able to "Bluefish" your way into more relationships, more private money, and ultimately more deals! We talk about "leading with value" when approaching mentors... blah blah blah. Today, you'll hear a refreshing new twiston that concept, and learn actual tactics you can put into practice to make more connections and level up your life today.  One final note: Steve uses some colorful language in this episode; please take note of the "Explicit" label, and listen to this one when the kiddos aren't in the backseat :) In This Episode We Cover:How Steve went from bricklayer to bouncer to building a business that makes people's dreams come trueWhat "Bluefishing" isDigging deeper to find your customers' true motivationThe one thing Artificial Intelligence can't replaceWhy it's often better to remove – rather than solve – problems in your businessHow to chase your own dreams, not someone else'sWhy social media "influencer culture" often leave you feeling empty and unhappyStories of working with clients ranging from Elon Musk to The PopeLinks from the ShowBiggerPockets PodcastBluefishingSpaceXClick here to check the full notes: http://biggerpockets.com/show409

408: Full-Time Income on a Part-Time Schedule with Emma Powell
Ever wonder how your family would manage if you or your spouse lost your job? Emma Powell faced that reality head-on. She knew she needed "full-time income" while continuing to spend time with her family... and she knew real estate investing would be the vehicle to get her there. Today Emma shares her journey from part-time photographer to multifamily dealmaker – how she got in the game by joining a REIA and immediately loaning money to an experienced investor (we discuss the right and wrong way to do this); her #1 piece of advice when meeting with a potential mentor; and her foray into the world of lease option ("rent to own") deals. Plus – Emma shares her perspective on how to choose a niche that suits your strengths (wholesaling wasn't for her; syndication and bigger commercial deals were a better fit). This is an inspiring story of someone who experienced a financial wake-up call, and went from total rookie to syndicator in just a few years... all while homeschooling 6 kids. Enjoy this one, and we'll see you again on Sunday! In This Episode We Cover:Emma's reaction to her husband being laid off from his tech jobWhat a Real Estate Investor Association (REIA) Meeting isHow she's found nearly all her deals by simply networkingDue diligence when loaning money to an investorWhat lease options areWhat a "due on sale" clause isClosing a great deal after a seller was burned by wholesalersHer passive income goals for the futureAnd SO much more!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets PodcastBiggerPocketsReal Estate Investment AssociationThe Real Estate Syndication Show5 Hour School WeekBiggerPockets Podcast 325: From Major Business Failure to Buying 20 Houses a Month With Aaron AmuchasteguiBiggerPockets BlogsBiggerPockets WebinarsCheck the full show notes here: https://www.biggerpockets.com/show408

Want to think like a high-level investor and business owner who is seizing the moment and enjoying his best year ever? Listen up! Former Oakland A's baseball player (and show 292 guest) Ryan Pineda steps back up to the plate today... and he delivers a detailed breakdown of how he's using TikTok, Youtube, billboards, and TV commercials to generate an avalanche of leads in the Las Vegas, NV market.

Well, a lot of hard work went it. And in this episode, you'll hear the journey firsthand: from exactly how each member of Ryan's team handles a transaction, to why they keep a visual scoreboard in the office, to how he had to shift his mindset after realizing he was the bottleneck holding his business back.
