196: Business Update August 2022


I am so excited to bring you my business update for August of 2022. This is my favorite episode every month. At the end of August, I’ll be licensed for three years.

Real Estate Business Update

I had no settlements in July and I’ve got nothing on the books right now. I’ll have no settlements here in August unless like a cash deal comes through. And actually, it feels kind of amazing. I shared on the last update how I had closed nine deals in May and June. That basically took me through the end of June to 95% of what I made all of last year.

I knew a lull was coming after the last deal that I closed at the end of June, and I was really looking forward to it after all the work that went into those two months.

Of course, as the dreamer and visionary that I am, I don’t sit still for very long. So I totally embraced the past month of having nothing on the books.

I had four or five potential buyers over the past few weeks reach out to me. A few of them will be under contract here over the next few weeks, and we’ll have some closings as we get toward September, October, and then finish the year strong.

From June of last year to July of this year, we have had 14 consecutive months of growth in the podcast. I am super thankful for all the people I continue to connect with and how it’s grown this show.

On the Home Front

I did enjoy the downtime. I spent a lot of time with my wife and my kids the last couple months, especially in July. Next week, we’re taking our first vacation as just the four of us going down to Annapolis, Maryland. I’m super excited for that. We’ll spend four or five days together there in Maryland by the water. I’m excited to get away with them and just have some quality family time.

Coming Up

I literally spent all night building out the membership community in a private Facebook group. And I am super excited about it gearing up. We’ll have our third call of the Real Estate Survival Guide mastermind community tomorrow night at 7:00 PM.

If you’re interested in something like this, feel free to let me know. I’m still only inviting people that I think would be a good fit. I’m not advertising this yet. My goal is to grow it about five members a month.

August is going to be fun with some time away with my family going to Podcast Movement in Dallas at the end of August. If I go and visit Cowboy Stadium, I’ll make sure I walk in there with an Eagles Jersey for a tour.
