From the desk of DC Fawcett:
After “leaving” college I went to work for a dot com company selling websites door to door to local businesses. The job only lasted a few months until I was told they couldn’t pay my salary any longer.
Thankfully I got some really good experience in direct sales which helped me a lot.
After the dot com deal, I worked for a dry cleaning business. I was there for about a year and was really unhappy because I knew I wasn’t going anywhere with this job. I knew deep down I wasn’t going to become wealthy working for someone else.
What I needed to do was start my own business.
I knew that most of the wealth in this country is controlled by business owners and most of that wealth was created through real estate.
I didn’t have any experience in real estate, I didn’t have any money, and I didn’t have any credit. So I wasn’t sure how I was going to get started as a real estate investor.
Then one night, while I was watching TV, I saw a commercial for a free workshop on how to do real estate without money, credit or experience. That was attractive to me because I didn’t have any of those.
So I went to the workshop and they explained what it was all about and they were also offering a seminar for $5000 to teach the whole process of how to do the business.
This was a defining moment in my life. I had to make the decision of whether to walk out of that room and go look for another job or to invest money (that I didn’t have) to go to the seminar.
I ended up putting the seminar on a credit card and I haven’t looked back since. I will never be employed by anyone except for myself for the rest of my life.
I learned many things at that seminar, like knowing that taking action is the number one priority.
The Secret, and the Law of Attraction are all well and good, but the truth of the matter is; you are not going to change your life unless you take the necessary steps to bring your goals and ideas into fruition.
When I want something, I go after it. I went home and started implementing all the strategies I had learned.
I started buying a lot of houses and was using all types of strategies. I was all over the place.
I was rehabbing houses, doing subject-to’s, wholesales, vacant houses, REO’s….you name it, I was doing it.
My cash flow was terrible. I owned all these houses because I had either taken over payments, or got hard money loans to buy the properties.
I was making payments on all of them and sinking fast. I ended up maxing out my credit cards to stay above water. My credit score took a huge dive since I was maxed out, and I was almost out of business before I really got started.
I later realized that in the foreclosure market, you don’t have to make payments on houses, and you don’t have to fix them up.
I ended up selling the houses that I owed money on, and I paid off my credit cards. I was basically even. No debt, but also no money in the bank.
I decided from that point on, I would only do short sale deals.
It only took me 2 years to get to a point where I was financially free. If I had to do it all over, I would start right with foreclosures and skip all the other stuff.
I created a system to be fully automated, so the business runs without me.
I spend about an hour a week meeting with my team and we close an average of 3 -4 short sales a month at an average profit of $38,000.
Its an average of $38,000 because we do some wholesale deals that range from the $10,000-$20,000 range and we do some luxury homes that are in the $80,000 to $170,000 range.
After years of investing in real estate, friends and family were asking if there were ways the could get in on the action. Instead of taking the time to teach each person, I decided to put together a short-sale course.
I received such positive feed-back from this course, that I started promoting to anyone who was interested, and it became wildly popular.
Then other business owners started asking for help with their marketing after they saw what I did with my Real Estate investing course. I jumped in full throttle and gave it everything I had to learn the ins and outs of Internet Marketing.
I wasted a lot of time buying outdated information that no longer worked (if it ever did). But I persisted. I finally got a breakthrough and discovered what every successful marketer was doing, but no one was talking about.
I started helping other businesses using this little known marketing trick and these businesses became wildly successful. Now I teach these principles to small businesses and entrepreneurs.
No matter what niche your business is in, these time-tested marketing principles work, and I’ve got them 100% automated as well.
I live life on my terms now. I work when I want. I play when I want.
I live in Florida on the gulf and every night I sit and watch the fish jump behind my house.
I’m sharing this story because I pictured myself living in this house 5 years ago….even though I had never physically seen this house. It was only an image in my mind.
I had a picture of this house in my head before I even saw it. 5 years later, when I saw the house and had the wherewithal to purchase it, I did.
While moving into the house I had the cognition that I was realizing my dreams….that having a crystal clear image of living in this house, even before I saw it, is what drove me to my “destiny.”
But it was actually more than just mocking up a picture in my mind, or posting some positive affirmations on my fridge that I was supposed to repeat everyday. It was the taking action everyday that made me realize my goals.
Before anyone is successful, they first have to have the idea that they can be fortunate. Without this firm belief that you can be, do, or have whatever you want, and then DOING what’s necessary to get you there, you’re just spinning your wheels into the ground.
I realized that it’s these “action steps” that get you to where you want to be. While many self-help guru’s teach you to “visualize” what you want, I think this is only half of the equation.
You want to envision your goals, and then do the necessary steps to bring your dream into reality.
In essence, each small action step you take, makes your dream that much closer to becoming a reality. It’s this activity, of putting your ideas into action, that can give you whatever you desire.
