What are you? Weird? Chances are if you’re visiting this page on purpose, you’re probably already organized. The irony is that the people who most need to be here would never be interested in clicking on “Get Organized”. Just like our annual goals retreat. All the motivated, focused, goal oriented people show up (sounds like a great crowd to spend a weekend with – hint, hint) while the befuddled, foggy, meandering drones (okay, that’s a little harsh) stay home. Back to the topic at hand…
Some people are naturally inclined to be organized. For others, it’s like crawling naked through broken glass. But no matter who you are, the reality of business and real estate investing is that you’ll GET MORE DONE FASTER FOR LESS MONEY when you’re organized. When you’re busy “doin’ it, doin’ it doin’ it” as Michael Gerber would say, it’s hard to slow down and work ON your business, rather then IN it. For more on this important concept, check out(and read) Mr. Gerber’s fantastic book, The E-Myth.
If the idea of getting organized is overwhelming to you or if you simply want a few ideas and recommendations, The Real Estate Guys are here to help!
Organization consists of:
- Tools and Supplies
- Reference Information
Each of those links will take you to a new area of our site with ideas and links to resources you’ll need to implement. But don’t go there yet! Read the rest of this page, then you can go back and explore those pages. This is a guided tour, so please stay with the group.
There are 3 primary steps for successful organization:
- Set Up
YOU need to understand 1 & 2, and YOU must drive #3. The biggest mistakes we’ve made in our businesses was to think we could delegate all three without setting the foundation. You can’t build a successful organization on an unorganized foundation. Duh. Do you have any idea how much money overlooking that one obvious fact cost us? Fortunately for our egos (and unfortunately for many others), we’re not the only ones.
If YOU will invest the time to work through all three steps in the beginning, then you will lay a foundation on which successful delegation is not only possible, but likely. In the parlance of our good friend Robert Kiyosaki, you move from the S quadrant to the B quadrant. And the last time we looked, real estate investing is a business.
So here’s the way this part of our site works. Since we’re not the brightest candles on the cake and don’t have all the answers to the world’s problems, we NEED YOUR HELP! If you’ve developed a way of doing things or found a resource that’s really helping you, TELL US! We’ll review all the submissions – and even field test a few – and put the best of the best here for all the world to find. And if you don’t find what you’re looking for, TELL US and we’ll go to work on it.
Together we will improve the economy, one real estate investor at a time – because when you’re organized, you’re more productive! (Theme music please)
