Alex was recently asked a question on how to host an effective ‘power day’ for your team. Power days are basically quarterly meetings with the team where you brainstorm, make the business process more efficient, and set new quarterly goals to pursue.

On the show, he shares what a typical power day agenda looks like for him, but he’s open to feedback on how he can make it better!
Felipe Bossans and Jesús Toledo are really new property investors. They found out for the first time what wholesaling even was at a real estate networking group in November of 2016.

They reached out to Alex for mentorship and with a little bit of guidance were able to close and net $82,000 in profit on their 5th deal ever. Crazy! Find out how they did it, on this week’s masterclass.

When Dan Zitofsky was 18 years old, he got a 30% FHA loan and bought his first condo with it. While in the Navy, he was making more money on his condo than on his salary.

However, it slowly became more and more a job for him and not the freedom lifestyle he wanted for himself. On today’s show, Dan talks about his real estate journey, why he prefers paying off his debt straight away, and why notes have really helped him develop the REAL passive income lifestyle we all desire.

Alex offers some advice as to what you should do when you’re really struggling with moving a property under contract. The best thing you can do is ask your potential buyers why they passed off on it.
