Bringing Yourself Into New Levels Of Success, Wealth, And Prosperity With Adam Carswell

You’re in for a great episode. Our guest is a friend of mine, Adam Carswell. I love the energy he brings and the hustle. He is a Real Estate Entrepreneur and Podcaster. In fact, I was a past guest on his Dream Chasers Podcast. He’s also a LinkedIn Power Networker and a new Media Marketing Maverick. He’s a Cofounder of RaiseMasters, the number one mastermind for lead capital raisers. He earned the moniker, “The Voice of Liberty” as a Master of Ceremonies at Liberland National Events and host the nation’s podcast, the Liberland Show.

He’s also a cryptocurrency pioneer and the co-host of the Blockchain Real Estate Summit. Over the years, Adam’s interviewed world leaders, such as Grant Cardone, Don Casey, and Roger Ver. He is a former semi-pro basketball player and was inducted into the Hall of Fame at his alma mater for his accomplishments on the court as well as on the track. In his spare time, he’s training to be a world-class DJ. Adam, welcome to the show. How are you?

I’m doing great, Dale. I’m happy to catch up with you. I got to applaud you on the bio, too, because as a fellow podcaster myself, we ask people to send us the bios in advance. I’m right there with you. You don’t look at it until two seconds before you go. I’ve had people struggle with what you did, but you nailed it. Thank you for the warm intro. I’m happy to be here. I want to applaud you and all the hard work you do with this show. A lot of people think, “They got a podcast. All they do is talk. It’s the easiest thing ever.” It’s another job. I appreciate all the work you’ve put into to get us to this point.

I love the diversity of your bio because you’ve done a lot of things. It makes you an interesting person. Let’s see where this conversation goes because I want to talk to you about different things. You’re in Canada. Whereabouts in Canada to get readers knowing based out geographically?

It’s been a fun journey because I’m originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I’ve lived in Washington DC, Mountain View, California, Belize, and Western Pennsylvania for a little bit when I was in college. I’m now in Canada. I live in Newfoundland. I started a digital nomad journey here that never ended and met my wife here. We got married a few years ago and getting ready to move. We will be in Calgary, Canada. Do we have Canucks tuned in? We’d love to get connected and Americans as well. We’ll be traveling throughout the US for some real estate conferences and whatnot. One thing that comes to mind for me now is, on the topic of coffee, have you ever been to The Rose Cafe in LA?

I have not, tell me about it.

The Rose Venice in Santa Monica, Venice Beach area. My wife and I went there and being in the Bay area, you could probably relate to this, but there’s a little bit of a homeless problem. We go to The Rose, which is like a breakfast coffee, entrée, maybe one appetizer, $70, $80 bill, which I knew was expensive. They don’t even have the prices on the menu. I was expecting to pay $20 for breakfast. It was $80. This was nice. We walk out of The Rose and there are tents all over the street and stuff like that.

I’m like, “This is so interesting,” because I had such an amazing, well-worth expensive experience in this very nice cafe, which I do recommend to anyone in LA. I’m sure if you know Santa Monica, you know what I’m talking about. The Rose Venice is very nice. If you want to flex, go there. It’s very odd to have to walk out of there and then there are tents up and down the street.

We’re getting to an interesting place here in America. I’m putting this on a little bit of a sad note to kick it off, but either way, California is still beautiful. Sunshine is out all the time, so don’t get me wrong, but I thought of that. It’s a place that I want to endorse, but don’t be turned off by tents in the street around there.

Looping back to this conversation, we met through real estate connections and whatnot. I initially met you because you were connected to Hunter Thompson’s Cash Flow Connections Mentorship Program. I know you were doing real estate first. Why don’t you tell the audience about more of your background and how you got started and whatnot? How did you get from there to doing stuff in real estate and all the entrepreneurial endeavors you’re doing?

If I had to trace it back to a defining moment, I’d say it was a combination of two. This would have been between my 1st and 2nd year of college at Westminster. My friends, me and my brother got into making YouTube dance music videos. It’s crazy thinking back because I remember we thought that we had missed the boat on YouTube and this is 2010, 2011. We didn’t keep up with what we were doing because life got in the way and we were making these dance videos and everyone was going out to get a job. We weren’t pursuing it full-time. It’s like, “Let’s minimize this silly childish behavior so we can go be professionals.”

Most financial planners refer to real estate as an alternative asset class when real estate is the original asset class. Share on X

I’m looking back on it now, if we would’ve stuck with what we were doing over several years, who knows where we’d be at right now? If you guys want to watch any funny dance videos, that page for the most part is private because maybe some of the professionalism stuff there we do want to protect a little bit. If you want to watch any, hit me up, and I’ll send you the unlisted links and you’ll see what I’m talking about when I send them to you. That was the turning point for me, where I started getting on camera and in front of a microphone consistently and started to realize, “I enjoy this.”

Fast forward, I pursued a career in collegiate basketball coaching. I did very well there but then transitioned into the corporate world. I “worked” with Sherwin Williams, the paint company. I managed stores for them in the Washington, DC area. I had a friend that I went to college with a recruiter for them who got me in there. That was cool, but I realized very quickly that I’m working my way up a ladder here that seems like it’s never going to end.

I’ve always had this underlying creative side that I was minimizing, so I could have a good view on LinkedIn and impress all the people that I wanted to be like one day. I then quit that job. It was doing very well, but I quit it to dive into real estate as a real estate agent with RE/MAX in McLean, Virginia. RE/MAX Distinctive was where I was when I first started getting back into the content creation side of things because I was like, “I don’t have to worry about anyone caring what I do like publicly now.” That was a liberating moment.

There are a bunch of backstories there, but as far as getting comfortable communicating, those were two defining moments, the silly YouTube videos, and then a few years after that transitioning into more professional content creation. I didn’t have to worry about one of my bosses think about what I’m doing. My broker at RE/MAX Distinctive, Andrew Reamer, was one of the first mentors in real estate that took me under his wing. Typically, when you’re starting out as a realtor, you don’t start with RE/MAX. That was a blessing situation.

Shortly after that, within the year of starting at RE/MAX is when I found Hunter Thompson on a podcast. I was like, “I like where this guy’s head is at.” I have no idea what he was talking about because he was talking about commercial real estate investing. It’s crazy and I’m sure you’ve seen it for yourself how when you first get into this real estate game because of the way HGTV and our society are set up, most people think of real estate houses. That’s it. I didn’t realize there was all this other stuff going on here that wasn’t that hard to get into as long as you have a couple of the right connections and Hunter was that initial connection for me.

Here we are. We have a mastermind focused on raising money, helping ensure that our members’ deals get funded over and over again. A lot of that is leveraged off of Hunter’s expertise. My role within our community is to make sure people are hitting their goals and getting connected to all the rockstar people they need to be connected to. It’s been an incredible journey to now be in a hybrid role of education, real estate, and even tech because of all the automation and things that we’re working with our members on. It’s been a lot of fun but very unconventional to get to where we’re at here now.

It’s great that we intersected and connected on commercial real estate investing. Also, I met you through the Hunter Thompson stuff as well. Even for myself being a real residential realtor, I know real estate, but the idea of commercial real estate investing the jargon was different. It was a different way of talking. I even had to learn the different terms, but it’s been great. Even somebody that’s in real estate like me, some of those terms can seem a little bit scary, but once you start talking to people and immersing yourself and having conversations, you get right into it.

I don’t know if your clients are even aware of how much of an edge they have had having you as a resource in their community. I see this from real estate agents and brokers who join our group. Your average broker on the residential side has no idea, for the most part, about any of this stuff. Maybe a few things here and there is a limited partner, which I’m sure you’ve got a few deals that you could talk about yourself as well, but I want to encourage your readers again that you have Dale as a resource. If you haven’t talked to him at all about commercial real estate investing, you should consider it, especially if a lot of your wealth is in the stock market or what people would consider traditional assets.

Most financial planners refer to real estate as an alternative asset class. It always makes me laugh because real estate is the original asset class. If you guys haven’t talked to Dale about any of the stuff that we might talk about here on the commercial side of things, the barrier entry is probably lower than you think and he’s a great resource for you to get in there.

In terms of real estate investing, did you get on the commercial side of things or did you dabble on the residential side or where are you at with investing in general? What’s your philosophy?

I started getting working on my license and everything in 2016 or 2017, but I wouldn’t say I even had a thorough grasp of anything that I was doing until late 2017, early 2018. I say all that to preface that I didn’t know anything about investing. Part of it is maybe the way that I was raised. I was always taught to save, but never anything about investing. That’s the typical average American middle-class mindset. You go to school, get a job, work your way up, and save. Maybe you have some 401(k) options or whatever. The light bulb, for me, and having a strategy around truly saving and then investing money, I wasn’t there until probably 2018 at the earliest, maybe even 2019.

SCF 34 | Wealth And Prosperity

Wealth And Prosperity: It’s very rare to meet anyone in their 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s from an investment perspective who says, “I wish I would have held onto whatever it was that I had. I wish it wouldn’t have sold.”

 

A lot of those years were hustling and grinding too. I’ve been in a solid position the past couple of years with what Hunter and I are working on where I’m stepping into a new world of wealth that I haven’t experienced until now. I’m still building up my investment portfolio until I can confidently make moves in the real estate space based on all the education, knowledge, resources, and connections I have now, which I’m grateful for.

It’s nice to be here because once I hit some of these milestones that I have set for myself, I know exactly where the capital is going to go. The one asset class and people might chuckle, but as you mentioned, we put me in there as a cryptocurrency pioneer. A lot of people are running around like chickens with their heads cut off right now. Thankfully, I have been through a few rocky patches on the crypto side of things to give me enough confidence now and on where I’m at.

I’ll go ahead and share my investment thesis with you in your audience until my crypto portfolio hits somewhere between $250,000 to $1 million. That’s when I’m going to start making my passive real estate investments. That’s where I’m at right now, but if I had asset classes to talk about that I liked and would recommend people to invest in based on what I’ve seen, multifamily is not going anywhere. It’s going to continue to grow. It’s the most popular one, but it’s also like a sleeper hit because a lot of people think the market’s getting saturated. There are not as many opportunities there.

Multifamily investments, especially in tertiary markets, are solid moves to make. I would recommend that. The other one is personally, I like self-storage. Typically, in a recession, it does well, myself being a human who accumulates stuff. I love donating it and getting rid of it, but we are creatures of storing up stuff. There’s always going to be a need to store it somewhere when it gets a little bit too crazy. Those two things, multifamily and self-storage, and be on the lookout for some Adam Carswell investments in those asset classes pretty soon.

I don’t know too much about crypto in general. It’s not my thing, but how did you get involved in the crypto space? What are you doing in that space?

I first got into it right around the time when I quit my W-2 to get into real estate. I found myself in a position as a young entrepreneur with not much of a framework on the direction I was going having a lot of free time. With that free time, at least I was using it pretty proactively. I was indoctrinating myself with YouTube university videos.

When I think about it, that’s ultimately how I found Hunter because I started going down Bitcoin rabbit holes in 2017. One of the channels that I was getting my Bitcoin information from had a show that interviewed a variety of different people and Hunter was the most buttoned-up guest maybe they had ever. That’s probably why it stood out to me. Anarchast was hosted by Jeff Berwick, who was a friend of mine now.

How did I get into Bitcoin? II was a rookie entrepreneur investor business person. In 2017, when Bitcoin had its first boom and got almost mainstream and people were not laughing at it anymore, I went to the moon and back. I remember my investments were based on where I was at. They had to have like 10 X. Bitcoin hit around $20,000, which, keep that in mind for everyone reading now, everyone’s freaking out because it’s at $29,000 or $30,000. I remember a day when it was $6,000 and everyone was celebrating because it hit $20,000 and then it went back down to $6,000. This stuff happens.

I remember watching my crypto bank go up and up. I’m thinking, “I’m 26. I’m the smartest investor in this game. I know what I’m doing.” I remember watching it go down. This is one thing I’ve observed from anyone who’s a wise, smart, typically older investor. It’s very rare that you meet anyone who’s in their 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s from an investment perspective that says, “I wish I would have held onto whatever it was that I had. I wish wouldn’t have sold.” That’s what I learned from that lesson.

As that price continued to go down, I panicked, as many rookies do, and I sold my way right back into where I started. That was a lesson learned. I started getting back into the crypto market actively when COVID hit. For the past few years, I haven’t sold anything. I have no desire or intention to do so. For anyone out there who’s speculative or whatever, I do think that from what we can see, Bitcoin and Ethereum aren’t going anywhere.

If you can put yourself in a position where you’re scooping up a little bit of both of those every month, it doesn’t even have to be much. It could be anywhere from a few hundred to a few grand, whatever works for you. If you can set that up once a month and keep scooping, no matter what the market does, have the mindset, “I’m going to be holding on to this for at least the next 5 to 10 years.”

If you're a podcaster, the one thing that’s going to set you apart from any other podcaster is when you keep doing it. Share on X

Your portfolio is going to look very different in that amount of time. That’s my crypto story and my mindset where I’m at now. There are somewhat they call alternative coins that I’m interested in, but for anyone who’s getting started, it’s a no-brainer to me for Bitcoin and Ethereum. Scoop a little bit up and get it in your portfolio.

Talk more about the Blockchain Real Estate Summit. This is where crypto meets real estate and whatnot. I don’t even know too much about that. Elaborate more on what you got going on over there.

I absolutely have to endorse the Blockchain Real Estate Summit. Michael Flight is the CEO of LibertyFund.io. He and I got together a few years ago. We’re like, “We’re going to do this thing.” We did it in the fall of 2021. We sold less than 100 tickets coming into the event. By the time the event was over, it was at least 300 or 400 people there. We sold all the tickets within a 48-to-24 hour period. People flock to Austin. There’s a massive need for information at this crossroads, as you can imagine.

BlockchainRealEstateSummit.com. I’ll be emceeing in 2022 as I did in 2021. Likely, we’ll continue to do so. We’re even thinking about doing an international one in either Panama or Brazil. We’re still talking, but send me on the road and give me a microphone, I’ll go rock a stage anywhere. Go ahead and check out the website and get your tickets there. My observation from that conference in 2021 was that 90% of anyone who went to that conference came in with a bunch of question marks and then the majority of people who left came out with a lot more clarity than they had ever had.

There’s one very prominent investor in our circle who has a daily podcast. He’s working on his PPMs, Private Placement Memorandum, right now to have a clause. This is what I would recommend to anyone out there who’s actively syndicating or doing deals. You’ve got to go through some of our content and reach out to me if you want me to connect you with the ones who can give you the crystal-clear take on this.

From a high level, there is a way in your PPM that you can basically say, “We’re going to provide the option for you as an investor to take your shares and form of a security token as opposed to traditional comp paper shares.” What that does is unlocks liquidity in the real estate investing market like we’ve never seen. I can tell you right now, at Liberty Real Estate Fund, which is a triple net lease security token fund, after a year of holding your security token as an investor, you are able to then take that token and then resell it on the secondary market to a non-accredited investor.

All of a sudden, we’re getting into a realm now where security tokens like crypto are only going to get popular. It’s going to become the standard once somebody takes the lead on it. For clarity, basically, someone in Tanzania who maybe doesn’t even know that much about US real estate could now become an investor in a US triple net lease asset through purchasing a share of a token on a secondary market. It’s going to open up the world to the benefits of US real estate investing in a stable coin. A lot of people like to say about crypto is, “What is it backed by?” Security tokens will be backed by physical assets, which is another reason we love the world of real estate.

I can’t wait to see how that all develops. That could potentially be the norm. Right now, it sounds crazy the way you’re talking. Things that sound crazy several years ago like social media and whatnot, look at them now. It’s all commonplace and everybody’s all used to it. I get where this is all going because I could see it. I know you have multiple podcasts now and I was a guest on your Dream Chasers Podcast. Did you run a podcast even before working with Hunter Thompson, or did you start a podcast after working with Hunter Thompson?

I did start my show before I met Hunter, but it was at a time when I didn’t even realize that I had started a podcast. A friend of mine who produces electronic music came out with an EP in the fall of 2017. You can look him up. His name is Sulli. The name of the EP was Serotonin. I don’t even think he’s released a whole lot since then, but I remember listening to it and thinking to myself, “This guy that I went to college with, I had no idea that he had the skillset.” It was right up my alley because that’s my favorite music. I’m like, “This is good stuff. The world needs to know about what you made.”

I was like, “Let’s do an interview and we’ll talk about what you made.” This is before Zoom. We make shifted an interview on Skype or something and recorded it. I did that with maybe 3, 4, or 5 other people, and then that was around the time when I went through the Cashflow Connections Mentorship Program, which is our connection.

After that course, I had a couple of one-on-one phone calls with Hunter and I told him about the show. He was like, “I don’t know if you realize this, but you do have a podcast. This is a podcast. If I were you, I would start releasing an episode per week and I would get going on that right now.” I was like, “Okay.”  I want to be like this guy one day. If he’s going to give me this advice or recommendation, I’m going to do it. That was late 2017, early 2018.

SCF 34 | Wealth And Prosperity

Wealth And Prosperity: Security tokens will be backed by physical assets, which is another reason we love the world of real estate.

 

Here we are in 2022 and I have not stopped. We’ve released one episode per week. We took a few months of hiatus at one point to regroup and see how we wanted to bring the show back. We might do that again too, but the main thing is if you’re a podcaster, the one thing, no matter what that’s going to set you apart from any other podcaster, is you keep doing it. Keep going and keep recording. There are plenty of hacks out there. If you want to take a year off, there are ways to do it. It’s called batch recording. It’s a lot of work, but go ahead and record 30 or 60 episodes in advance and drip them out. It’s doable.

Your podcast or interview style is as well as mine. Every time I talk to somebody, it’s like a case study. You get to talk to somebody, see the way they think, the way they tick and whatnot. You’ve interviewed more folks than I have. What do you think are the most important traits or skillsets of successful investors/entrepreneurs?

There’s power in patterns. Some people are going to want to read this and be like, “Nice.” There are some people who are going to want to read this who have been running and hiding from this thing. One of the ways to bring yourself to new levels of success, wealth, prosperity, or whatever you want to call it is to create content. I look at our most successful members in RaiseMasters, who I’m sure if I drop the names here, you’re going to know a good chunk of them.

There’s this concept that I like called the four levels of value. I’ll give credit to a guy named Myron Golden and he’s based out of Tampa. He’s got a book called From The Trash Man To The Cash Man. Definitely get yourself a copy of that if you can. Are you familiar with ClickFunnels and that community?

Yes, I am.

For those of you reading who aren’t familiar with Russell Brunson, I would argue that he is the brilliant mind of internet marketing until he passes away. He’s the next bearer of the torch for internet marketing. Within Russell Brunson’s community, which Hunter and I are a part of, we’re in his inner circle. Within that inner circle, there’s one person that people in that group consistently go to, to learn how to sell their product or service to the masses. His name is Myron Golden. I’ve got to set the stage on who this guy is.

Myron Golden teaches this concept called the Four Levels of Value. There’s implementation, unification, communication, and imagination. It’s got to be close to 99% of the world operating at the implementation and unification level and it’s not anyone’s fault. It’s the way that the system is set up to control us. The implementation level is someone who’s making money or getting compensated by using their hands. On the low-end, you can be flipping burgers or making tacos at Taco Bell, while on the high-end, you could be an autobody mechanic at Bentley, Jaguar, Rolls-Royce, or something high-end. There are some six-figure do-it with your hands jobs out there. That’s about the cap.

Unification is the people who manage the people who do the things with their hands. You’re managing a team at Taco Bell, the low end. You’re managing a team at Google, Facebook, or Boeing. You’re managing the people who do the thing on the high-end with those jobs. There are a few flukes here and there, but in general, you’re probably somewhere between $200,000 to $400,000 a year on the high-end, keeping in mind taxes and all that stuff. It’s a W2.

There’s this chasm. Those are the first two levels. Most people never make it from there to communication or imagination. Communication, the power of communication is someone who can communicate a message from their heart to another’s or vice versa. You can look at that on the creative side, like authors, singers, songwriters, and Justin Bieber. I know he’s not super popular right now, but Will Smith, all these people who have figured out a way through the way they communicate to move the masses and messages that move the masses.

There’s also like yourself Dale, luxury home sales or high-ticket sales, someone who is using their mouth to make money. That’s communication. Growing up in our school system, I like to call them government-indoctrination camps. We are trained to despise communication for the most part. Everyone can think of a moment that they were deathly afraid to get up in front of their class and give a speech. That’s the only practice that communication that I’ve seen traditional schooling provides.

It’s completely backward. The people who can get on here, get on the microphone, talk, and influence. I thought about this. I’m like, “Do you know who is one of the OGs of content creation was? It sounds funny, but it’s Jesus and Muhammad.” the reason that we all know any of these religious leaders is because they have content that has been perpetuated for centuries. They were communicators.

Every single one of us has that voice inside to go out and influence the masses and create messages that move them. Share on X

Every single one of us has that voice inside of us to go out and influence the masses and create messages that move the masses, but we’re not encouraged enough to tap into that side of things. We’re getting to the four levels of value. That’s number three. Number four is imagination. I’m going to throw a name out there. You tell me the first name that comes to mind when I say this company. Tesla.

Musk.

We’ve seen the same thing with Apple and Steve Jobs. Elon Musk. Tesla is someone else’s name. It’s the person who either invented electricity or the light bulb, or something like that, which Thomas Edison who also gets credit for that. Nikola Tesla was the one. What’s the difference between Tesla and Musk and Thomas Edison. Musk used their mind to make money. They said, “This brand here and this idea is worth a lot in the world needs to know it.” They then leverage communication and their imagination to get that out there.

Steve Jobs, the same thing. He’s been gone for several years now, but when you say Apple, people still think Steve Jobs. Why is that? It’s because he was in a realm meditatively speaking and communicating where he was able to show what Steve Wozniak had created. Steve Wozniak was his partner. No one talks about him. He was able to show the world the beauty of what Steve Wozniak did through imagination and communication.

The one common trend that I keep seeing between the more successful people that I’ve met is they are out there using communication and imagination on a daily basis as often and as frequently as possible. Putting yourself in a position to meditate, to get on camera, get in front of a microphone, pray, whatever you want to call it, however you want to look at it, if you can spend most of your time in those realms, you will begin to see results almost instantaneously. If you don’t see them right away, I’ll tell you right now, work always works. It’s either working for you or it’s working on you. If you step in this direction and you don’t see results right away, just keep going. It is the secret to massive success.

I love this platform. We’re just doing podcasts. This is a form of content creation because it opens doors. I learned things. I’ve met people. I met people I don’t even know that reached out to me. You could attest to the same thing. It’s one of those things where I didn’t know what having a podcast would do, but now that I know, I’m like, “Why didn’t I start this little a while back?”

The crazy thing is it’s still early. If you remember, a few years ago, people were making a big deal about Rogan landing a multimillion-dollar deal with Spotify. That’s the first of a wave that we’re about to see here in the podcasting space.

I love the long shelf life and the fact that the podcast is out there. It’ll be on the internet and somebody could be reading to this maybe a decade from now and get value out of this conversation and maybe reach out to either one of us. One of the things in your bio is that you are an expert in communication. Since we’re talking about communication, it sets you apart from the crowd. I want to delve into that a little bit. What is it about what you do in the communication realm that sets you apart?

The one hack here from a communication perspective which leads to connection is listening to what someone is sharing with you and making a mental note of what they’re telling you. Storing that in your mind or in your bank of information. I’ll give a couple of examples here. Did you ever meet Tyler Lions? He’s our Director of Investments at Asym Capital. He’s gone through the Cash Flow Connections Mentorship Program.

Whether you know it or not, he’s in your circle or ecosystem. Maybe I’ll connect you with Tyler here soon. I was like, “What’s the networking hack you can share with our audience?” He’s like, “One thing that almost always works when you’re connecting people is remembering where someone tells you that they’re from or where they live.” This goes beyond business or whatever type of environment you’re in.

If you can remember, like, “So-and-so told me that they’re from Cleveland, Ohio.” “I know someone in Cleveland.” Being able to connect two people that geographically know the same area, regardless of their walk of life, typically results in some special bond that I can’t even quite comprehend. Remember that when you’re communicating and connecting with people. “Where are they from?” Always ask people what their name is. That’s a big one.

Wealth And Prosperity: One of the ways to bring yourself to new levels of success, wealth, prosperity, or whatever you want to call it is to create content.

 

The other thing that can set you apart is, whatever the environment may be, you’re having a conversation with someone. Ask them the question, “What do you need to happen in your life right now that would take the quality of your life or your business or both to the next level? What is it that would 4X, 5X, 10X your life based on where you’re at right now? What is the one resource connection or tool that you’re searching for?” Most people do have an answer to this. They might be caught off guard because it challenges them to think. They’re probably going to give you an answer. They’re going to never forget that you asked them that question. It’s like, “That was deep.”

The way you asked it, it sounds like, “This guy cares.”

It shows you care. If someone tells you something that you don’t have the connection, the resource, or the tool, whatever it may be, if they give you an answer, and you don’t know what you can do right now to help them, I’m here to tell you. Normally, once you learn that type of information from someone, the universe will manifest an answer for you eventually. If someone’s like, “I need a good plumber.” “I don’t have any right now.” Next week, you’re going to find a connection. Make that email texts introduction or whatever and you become the electric source, the connector, the communicator of your network. That’s what you’re doing right now with this show.

Speaking of networking, you are a power of networking. I’ve had 2 or 3 guests that I’ve met because of you that are on show. You introduced me to people. Thanks for those connections. You never know who you’re going to meet and what you’re going to learn and what you could even potentially create with that other person or help them.

It doesn’t have to be able to be real estate or whatever. Somebody will help you and people do want to help you. Don’t be afraid to ask. That question that you were talking about, “What can I do to get you to 10X your business or whatever?” that’s an amazing question. That would because me to start thinking. It was like, “I would make me think too.”

Do you have something with your head right now on that one?

This type of question was asked to me because I’m trying to scale up. I’m in the process of growing my business and delegating more. As you know already, I’m working with more virtual assistants and scaling up that way. I’m in the process of growing my real estate sales team where I partner up with everybody to free up more of my time. I’m revamping my business so that I can go and do other things where I don’t necessarily have to physically be somewhere.

You’re getting to that delegation phase, which is the inevitable path of any entrepreneur. I don’t know if I’m personally quite there yet, but it’s another thing where you eventually go from doing what you do on a daily basis to get to where you’re at to becoming, if you want to get to that next level, like a team manager, a coach, and a leader. Your whole focus becomes, “How do I meet the needs of the people I’ve brought underneath me, so they can go and do the things that I once did with my hands?”

I have some final questions for you. What are you excited about now with anything that you’re doing in business?

I’ll give you two. On the business front, I’ve got to be honest, the growth and the excitement and everything that we’ve seen and we’re experiencing at RaiseMasters has been a blessing and a fun journey. For the first time in my life, I feel crystal clear on who I’ve been called to serve right now and that community.

For anyone who wants to know more about RaiseMasters, the number one mastermind for elite capital raisers, go to RaiseMasters.com and you can begin going down the rabbit hole there. I’m pumped about the future of RaiseMasters. The other thing that I’m also very excited about is more on the creative side of things. In my spare time, I’m training to be a world-class DJ.

Wealth And Prosperity: The one common trend among the more successful people is they are out there using communication and imagination on a daily basis as often and as frequently as possible.

 

I began coursework and it is a little bit learn as you go, but it’s like live classes that I’m attending with Toolroom Academy. Go to ToolroomAcademy.com. It’s a tech-house record label in particular that I’ve been following for several years. I always listen to their show. You can call it a podcast with a bunch of music, but I’ve been listening to it for years. It’s evident that this is the vibe that I like and want to emulate as a creator myself.

I signed up for their course. I’m two classes in and I got my homework assignment. I’m going to work on it, but I’m learning how to produce tech-house music. I’ve always been the world’s greatest Spotify DJ. I can hop on a microphone and play around with Spotify and fade in and fade out, but that was about it. I was like, “If I hit age 50, I’ve never learned how to work turntables and get the crowd to go crazy at least a few times, I’m going to feel like I missed out on something in life.” That’s a big piece of it. I love having a good time playing music and getting the people going. It’s in my blood.

What’s your superpower that’s contributed to all your success?

The more I practice doing things in this realm of communication and imagination that we’ve been talking about, the more I do start to see. I want to be the first one to come on here and say to everyone, “Everything we talked about here is literally attainable for anyone.” My superpower is helping individuals realize that we all do have a voice. Within ourselves, we all are as creative as a lot of people that maybe we look up to and say, “I could never be like them.” We all can. It starts with the confidence and the awareness of knowing that we all do have that within us. My superpower is helping empower and awaken others to find their voice.

My last question is how can somebody get ahold of you?
