3 Things We Learned From Juan Vargas
- Don’t go it alone. As business leaders we should be leveraging the skills of others, instead of trying to do everything ourselves. We have to have teams in place if we want to see results.
- When raising money, it’s important to network effectively. Don’t be afraid to talk to other industry professionals, join masterminds and meet new individuals. The only way to raise money is by actively engaging with potential lenders.
- Team up with other investors, and be willing to take a smaller percentage of the financial rewards. A smaller percentage over a longer period is a great incentive.
At the start of this episode, we discussed that real estate investing is a great source of passive income, as long as investors had the right teams in place. We then spoke about how to build a bigger presence in the investing space, and emphasized that investors should never ask for money.
We also discussed:
- How being passionate about what we do helps raise money without asking for it
- The importance of having some money of our own to invest with
- How to team up with other investors
