    Getting Landlords To Say Yes

    Getting Landlords To Say Yes

    One of the unique things that you need to understand is that people do things for their reasons, not theirs, and their reasons make sense to them. Be careful about assuming that the way you think is the way that everyone thinks. When it comes to talking to landlords as a short term rental operator and getting them to say yes, there is a proven process that you can use to start the conversation and close the deal.

    The Cashflow Diary Story with Brett Swarts

    The Cashflow Diary Story with Brett Swarts

    J Massey was the featured guest on the Capital Gains Tax Solutions podcast with Brett Swarts recently and they talked about everything from how J got started in real estate investing, to key short term rental strategies, growth mindset, the Cashflow Diary, and more.
    Questions and Answers
    What is your background and what’s your current focus?  J started out from a very difficult situation in life. J’s wife has a condition that when she’s pregnant she can’t eat or drink, and at the same time as her pregnancy J had a punctured lung and brutal asthma. The challenge was that neither of them could earn income by going to work so they needed to find a solution. A friend recommended that he look into real estate investing so with literally no money and terrible credit J began wholesaling properties. 
    After being introduced to taxes, J started keeping the properties and that developed into a portfolio that included single family houses, mortgages, and cell phone towers. Eventually people started asking how he’d been able to achieve all of that, so J began teaching others how to do the same thing. One of J’s students introduced him to the idea of short term rentals, and three years ago J switched his focus to teaching people how to create their own short term rental business.
    What is your super power and how does it shape how you help others today? J grew up as a military kid outside of the States and growing up overseas has given him the ability to adapt to new situations very quickly. J is autistic and has ADHD and he considers those his super powers as they help him connect the dots and learn new things surprisingly fast. It’s also a gift being able to share that information and help other people as well.
    How did you transfer the idea of a weakness into a strength? Being able to provide for your family is great but when that’s accomplished there’s not much else to do. At the age of 38, J found himself functionally retired and with nothing to do until one person came to him and asked to learn everything he knew. In the process of teaching this person the skills of real estate investing, both J and the other person went through incredible transformations. He realized how fulfilling and valuable it is to help other people achieve their dreams and that ultimately put him on his current path.
    Does your approach to life filter into your basketball game? J judges his success in a basketball game by the number of rebounds and blocks he made, the things that enable someone else to be able to be great. Setting the example of helping other people is very important to J. In many ways, entrepreneurs can be some of the most selfless individuals and since they are so connected to so many different people, they have the ability to make fundamental positive changes to their communities.
    Walk us through the tactical parts of what you do and how you help people create more wealth. One of the things that people rarely tell you is that owning real estate long term is a great way to build wealth but horrible for building income. Income doesn’t materialize until the debt servicing is complete. When J had 450 units, there was always something to repair and something to do, so they started looking for ways to increase income and reduce the work. This is where short term rental units come into the picture.
    Short term rentals have a number of advantages to the user compared to a traditional hotel room that customers appreciate, which are some of the things he covers on the Cashflow Diary podcast.
    What’s the process once someone gets their first deal done? We’ll assume two things: each bedroom in a short term rental will net you $800 per month throughout the year. The second thing is that you have $250,000 to invest in real estate. On average, that $250,000 will allow you to acquire anywhere from 10 to 17 short te

    Thomas W. Jones: From Campus Revolutionary to Powerful Financial Services Leader

    Thomas W. Jones: From Campus Revolutionary to Powerful Financial Services Leader

    Thomas W. Jones is the Former Vice Chairman, President & COO at TIAA-CREF, the largest pension system in the country. He was the former Vice Chairman of Travelers, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and Freddie Mac, and the Former Chairman & CEO of Smith Barney Asset Management. He was the former CEO of Global Investment Management at Citigroup and Former Treasurer at John Hancock Insurance Company. Thomas W. Jones is currently the Founder and senior partner of venture capital investment firm TWJ Capital and author of the new book From Willard Straight to Wall Street: A Memoir. 
    Podcast Highlights
     
    Who is Thomas W. Jones?   
    Thomas W. Jones was on the cover of Newsweek in 1969 as an iconic revolutionary while studying at Cornell. As a student, Thomas felt that America was at a crossroads and that his generation was tasked with the job of raising the price of oppression. Due to his effort and the effort of countless others, America chose to embrace the spirit of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and has made significant progress over the last 50 years towards equality.
    In a certain way, Thomas’s life story and career in business is like a microcosm of the story of the growth and development of America as a whole.
     
    Did the fight look like what you thought it would?  
    Thomas was pleasantly surprised when America took the path of opening up opportunity instead of the path of oppression. He believed the toughest fight would be in the business world and he figured that he would have almost no chance at success, but he needed to try. He had to approach business in a way that he provided his own psychological support, because he knew he wasn’t going to receive any from the outside.
    He discovered that if you actually deliver a true 100% commitment, there is a large gap over time between the people who are delivering only 95%. The 5% gap seems small but it compounds over the years and people start to notice. For Thomas, this meant people in the upper echelons of business recognizing that he was getting the job done and eventually taking him on in a mentorship type of relationship.
     
    Where does your motivation and fortitude come from?  
    It takes a certain level of self belief and self confidence to take on tough challenges. For Thomas, his confidence came from his experience in school. At that time, the philosophy of school in dealing with a gifted child was to accelerate them, and that meant that Thomas had skipped two grades. This meant that he was much younger than his peers and once he had entered high school he encountered a number of bullies. It was then that he decided that he wouldn’t let others define who he was. That self possession developed into the mentality that even if he was facing insurmountable odds, Thomas might as well try to get it done.
    Most people never figure out what they are capable of because they never actually put 100% into trying to be their best. You can never know what you can do until you give 100% effort. It’s a wonderful gift that you can give to yourself to learn what your highest potential is. When you learn what your capacity is, you will be able to channel and master it, and you will find arenas where you can give 100% and be successful.
    Thomas’s faith discipline has been another crucial element. Even in the midst of a crisis, praying and trying to see the good in the situation allowed Thomas to continue to fight. Life is going to have times of trial, and having spiritual faith that can sustain you is very important.
    Striving is one way to make life meaningful. A story like Thomas Jones could not have happened anywhere but America. 
    Every single year Thomas would set three goals for himself and having the discipline to achieve those goals each year had a major impact on his life.
    Early on in Thomas’s marriage, he and his wife made some very imp

My Favorite Show

J’s Show CashFlowDiary is the first Real Estate podcast I’ve encountered when I found out I wanted to become a real estate investor. This podcast had provided me with phenomenal advice, information, and a new mindset. This podcast has inspired me to grow as a person, an entrepreneur, and as an action taker. Thanks J for creating this podcast.

An incredible show!!

J. Massey is an incredible host and brings on some of the most inspiring guests in the investing, real estate and business world! Each interview has an awesome blend of tactical advice (how do we translate this into immediate, cashflow action today) and the deeper mindset that allows those tactics to become an extension of who you are. The stories he shares are raw and authentic, and he invites his guests to be just as candid. Highly recommend making this podcast one of your go-tos!
