    Key Quotes:
            You can control what's going into your mind and who you're surrounding yourself with.

            “Ultimately everybody else wanted to achieve success, which is, achieving success is getting what you want and achieving fulfillment, giving back for what you've got...”

            “The work-life balance works like this. If you love work. You're going to come home and you going to be present with your kids. If you hate your job, nine to five, you're going to come home. You're going to be pissed off. You're not going to really enjoy your family, and you are going to be thinking about work and going back to work.”

            “I always say, commit, then figure it out…”

            “Be careful when you're looking at real estate at the market itself, and what's going on, is it business-friendly? Is it tax-friendly? and where's the migration? Where is the flow of money going?”

            “Man with money meets a man with experience, the man with experience gets the money and the man with the money gets the experience…”

            “You want to stay away from the shiny objects syndrome. Focus on a niche…”

            “What I want everybody on the call to think about and what they should all strive for is to become financially free…”

            “Josh taught me this phrase and I always use it all the time. It's pay to play or seek to serve. You can do one of those two things…”

            “For anybody looking to invest outside of the market, they need to focus on one or two markets at the most, especially when you first start out, because you're going to need to create broker relationships…”

            “That's another perspective, it is not just about the real estate numbers. It's about the ability for you to get to that market…”

            “[Syndication] is just a tool in the toolbox where I like every student or every potential investor to do, to learn as many strategies and techniques as possible…”

            Where to Find Dustin Brohm? [00:45:20]


    In This Episode You’ll Learn:
    In this episode, Casanova talks with Samson Jagoras. He talks about how his journey from being a college football player to a Futures and Commodities broker to real estate. Samson shares his thoughts on the power of syndication, how to find good deals, the importance of building your brand, is Bitcoin the next standard, and much more. Have a listen.


    Key Quotes:
            “That one year in between being a walk-on and getting put back on scholarship was probably one of the greatest years of my life because I lived off-campus and I had no cell phone, no car, I would wake up and train in the dark, and every day I showed up for practice was game day…”

            Entrepreneurship is just a game. It's a form of creativity and expression, and that's what I love about it the most…

            “The people that consistently made money were those people who were real producers that own real assets who are using the futures markets like they were designed, which was to hedge against your cash or your physical…”

            “You start studying the game. So that's how I was with real estate. I was buying books and I was on bigger podcasts, and I was listening to podcasts, and I was just investing in my knowledge and trying to figure out what was the best way for me to build the highest cash-flowing real estate possible…”

            There are really four ways that you get into real estate syndication. Number one, you work in the industry for seven to 10 years. Number two you're born into it. Number three, you just go bang your head against the wall, or number four, you go find a mentor.

            You need three things to get a deal done. I think Brandon Turner with Bigger Pockets was the one that said this, but you need knowledge, you need a team, and you need capital effectively.

            There's a saying in the stock world, which is everybody's a genius in a bull market. There's also another saying that's the market always needs another sucker, and so I just don't want to be that sucker.

            I stay liquid in things that I think are good stores of value.

    In This Episode You’ll Learn:
    In this episode, Casanova talks with Isaac Grace. He shares his tumultuous journey from hustling on the streets to amateur boxing career, to eventually discovering the world of wholesaling real estate. He shares the mindset that helped him secure over a million dollars in revenue and become The Millennial Hope Dealer.


    Key Quotes:
            “At 13 years old, I learned so much about myself, where I wasn't going to allow anyone to dictate my future…”

            “From 17 to 21, I hustled, chase this dream in boxing, and I just knew that I had to find something…”

            “Wholesaling real estate was what really caught me because you didn't need a lot of experience in real estate. You didn't need no credit and you really didn't need a lot of money…”

            “I learned that information changes compensation and the power of knowledge and I that's my blueprint to get everything. I want to seek the knowledge and find it and execute on it…”

            “Wholesaler in the simplest form is you acting as a real estate professional acting as a middleman connecting cash buyers in the market with motivated sellers…”

            There's four important components of success in this business of wholesaling: lead generation, cash buyers, systems, and list builder.

            “So you want to learn how to systemize things that keeps your time freed up to do the higher priority tasks…”

            “Literally reverse wholesaling is like this. You just go out there and build your buyers list first and let the buyers teach you about the market, and then you follow the trends of what they give you…”

            “I try to teach people all the time is if you're going to go out and you want to do multiple things, you got to have a team, you got to have leverage…” – Casanova Brooks

            “I wish I would took a lot more serious and that's really my message for everybody, y'all hear is go through the growing pains early on, go through the unsureness, go through the study and go through the resilience and not quit and go see that seller when you don't know what the heck you talking about…”

            Where to Find Knolly Williams? [00:55:31]


    In This Episode You’ll Learn:
    In this episode, Casanova talks with Knolly Williams. He shares how he started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 13, the Process of Profit, how we started a successful Christian rap label and how he ended up losing everything. He also shares how he was able to turn things around and finding success in the real estate business, and how he is trying to help others achieve the same.


    Key Quotes:
            “When I was 18, I cleaned up my act, came to Jesus, literally, and I’ve been on an entrepreneurial path since I was 13 years old...”

            “I call it the Process of Profit. I like seeing, I like starting off with a dime and turn it into a dollar. It's just a lot of fun for me…”

            “One of the myths in entrepreneurship is that we can do it all by ourselves, and the truth is nobody succeeds alone…”

            By the time I was 28, I was making over a hundred grand a month, and by the time I was 29, I made my first million. I actually made $2 million that year. Our record label got picked up by EMI capital…

            So, I ended up actually dead broke when the music industry switched to in the early 2000s, I couldn't keep up. I didn't adapt to the change, and I got left behind.

            “There's eight pillars that you have to have in any business in order to succeed at a high level, and the very first pillar really is mindset...”

            “Who taught you what you currently know about money? Does that person, or did that person earn the money you want to make? And if not, it's time to get better teachers…”

            The eight pillars of success are mindset, activities, people, systems, tools, money, accountability, and training.

            The four bodies are, you have a physical body, a mental body, an emotional body, and a spiritual body, and you want to be astute and adept in all four of your bodies.

            “I always had this dream Cass of being able to serve people, without them having to pay for my services…”

            One thing that I really wish I would have learned earlier is to work closer on developing myself

    DN233 - Jas Takhar: The Power of Content Creation in Real Estate

    Here’s a snapshot of a few things we talked about…
            Who is the Clark Kent, When It Comes to Jas Takhar? [00:01:57]

            Why You Should Not Compare Yourself with Others [00:07:20]

            What Helps Him Achieve Over 180 Transactions in a Year? [00:14:18]

            How Did He First Learn About Building Relationships? [00:21:57]

            Why You Should Sort People Instead of Trying to Convince Them [00:28:49]

            One Thing He Wishes He Had Implemented Sooner to Accelerate His Journey? [00:38:28]

            Where to Find Jas Takhar? [00:46:34]


    In This Episode You’ll Learn:
    In this episode, Casanova talks with Jas Takhar. They talk about how comparing yourself with others can be harmful, why you should not hide behind your insecurities and focus on your strengths, how content creation was a game changer for him, and how you can create 15-20 pieces of content per day.


    Key Quotes:
            I'm [like] just a kid. I want to try stuff. I'm very, very curious. I like to find out about how, like how much can I personally do? How much can I push this [my brain].

            [Lockdown] was tough for me for the first two, three months. Like we stayed home and for me that was tough. Like, yeah, I was with my wife and kids, but I also needed to be around more people, because I love to be around people.

            “So, me, the Clark Kent in me is really just being that big kid, having a lot of fun and being curious…”

            “I think at the core of everything, we all just want to get that inner kid, back out of us but sometimes we just lose that…” – Casanova Brooks

            “If you're watching or listening, be okay with the process and understand A; it's not fair to yourself to compare to us right now, and B; it's also an insult because we've put in the reps …”

            “Once I realized, like I'm just going to put all my insecurities, I took that route. I'm not going to hide my insecurities. I'm going to put them out because I am hoping to inspire someone that will take it to the next level…”

            “The comparison game is the thief of all joy and success…”

            I think the easiest way to get over comparing yourself to others is just realizing that for the rest of your life, people will always have more than you. For the rest of your life, people will always have less than you.

            “Once you come to that realization that you can only control what's in your circle, now you got power…”

            “I think most people try to fix their weaknesses and they're hitting singles and doubles when they can hit home runs and grand slams just by focusing on their strengths…”

            “I decided that I'm going to design my, my business around my life, not the other way around…”

            “Why not just focusing on the 90 to 98% of people that will actually use the services of an agent but make it easy on them by educating them first, then seeing if they actually need your product or service…”

            “You want to be the most interesting person in the room. Just be the most interested person in the room and people will start to connect with you…”

            You're never really trying to convince somebody; you're just ‘sorting’ to see if they are ready.

            “I produce all levels of content, video, audio, and the written word, because I think it's that important, all of them because you allow other people to make the decision on how they consume content…”
