In this episode, Jason, Scott, and Ethan discuss:
The best way for mentors to teach their students
There are more paths to life
How Ethan bought his first property at seven years old
How to get what you want out of a negotiation
If you’re a mentor, you must give the one you’re guiding a chance to take action on their own. You must be available to provide guidance when needed, but able to give them enough space and not be holding their hand as they explore.
There are more paths to life than just “go to school, get good grades, and get a job”. We’ve got to be more open-minded about the potential for financial freedom in the area of real estate investing and encourage this idea in our inner circles.
Through creative financing, you can buy real estate for cheap. If a seven year old could do it, anyone can do it!
To get what you want in a negotiation, you need to figure out what the other person wants first. This could take a couple of conversations to uncover, but once you know what they want only then can you start creating a solution.
"Another really important lesson is, is you don't need to know exactly how to do all of these. You just need to have an open mind and know who to ask. Or as my brother would say, be creative and take action." — Ethan Wohlwend
