You probably already know this but...
...if you've been in the real estate industry for longer than a day, you've realized that most of the "Gurus" (and most courses on house flipping/ wholesale real estate investing, etc.,) fall short when it comes to THE MOST IMPORTANT THING you need to learn to succeed in your business..

[Case Study] The 1 Weird Software Trick That Allows Ordinary People to Reverse Engineer and Recreate Extraordinary Online Business Websites
"Mike Stanzyk was just your average middle class American working a 9 to 5 and struggling to make ends meet with his day job. He’d never believed all the hype about making money online because it all seemed like a pipe dream to him.
All of this changed when Mike stumbled onto a hidden sales funnel software in a marketing group that allowed him, a person with no programming skills, to begin re-building and reverse engineering million dollar businesses online in just a few hours each evening."

Two weeks ago today, I became a dad for the first time at 43 years old.
Talk about a life-changing event...
For those of you who are already parents, you known this for a while now, but for guys like me - this is all new territory.
This seems to be my life for the next... who knows how long, but this little guy is worth it.
Thank God for my wife, Diana, because I seriously do not know how I would survive taking care of this little guy all alone. My wife is amazing...
I love my wife Diana, and our newest addition to our family - little, "Ivan Emmanuel de la Peña..."
He's adorable, and it's truly amazing that even when I can't sleep, just looking into his eyes makes it all completely worthwhile.
But now comes a new era in my life...
...where having good organization in my life will be key, because I'm a "virtual" entrepreneur that works from home with ...my wife, son, and little dog.
It's become clear - really quickly - that I need some good boundaries, expectations, and rules implemented to follow so I can still give my family the quality time they need, but ...also attend to our businesses', customer's, and client's needs.
This morning on the way to the gym, I watched this great video by Stu McLaren on "Managing Time as an Entrepreneur and Parent."
You can watch it right here...
It was super helpful, because it served as a great reminder of the need to:
Maybe you can relate...
Maybe you're a "virtual" entrepreneur too, that works from home while your family is around. Or maybe you own an offline business like my wife's photography studio. Regardless of which kind of business you own, you know that it can be very challenging at times trying to balance work and family time.
Like everything in life when it comes to relationships, especially family, having great communication is the key. Making sure everyone is on the same page, and understanding that you love them and that you WILL separate time JUST for them is critical.
In fact, I enjoy going for quick walks now with my wife and son, even for just a few blocks, so we can get some good quality time - even for just a few minutes.
And the truth is, I feel blessed, because I'm able to do just that. To be able to sneak out for just a little while with my family during business hours on a week day - and then come back home and finish up my work.
Do You Need More Free Time Too?
If this blog post, and Stu's video resinate with you, and you've found yourself needing more quality time with your family, you're not alone.
We as entrepreneurs can quickly get sucked into our daily businesses and forget to make time for the things that truly matter.
I know I can...

Russell de la Peña
Years ago, I started my real estate career with a little savings, sleeping on my friend's living room floor, and by printing out 200 color flyers that I then passed out to home owners living nearby.
To say that I was either perceived as, or felt like, an expert - wouldn't be true.
If anything, I felt like a loser in my late 20's, and more than anything, I was insecure about the future. I had just left what I felt was a dead-end job at a software company, because my entire department was being laid off, and I was literally the last person remaining in the entire department floor.
I'm not exaggerating...
There was only me, and I spent my 8 hours a day answering and fielding calls and surfing the Net in search for a new job.
The thought of getting a new job made me want to throw up, because I wanted to be my own boss and make my own rules.
I also didn't want to field any more calls like a telephone operator, because I felt I could do so much more if I just learned the necessary skills and applied myself.
So instead of getting a new job, I got my real estate license and did my best to survive on the little savings that I had from the software company, and went for it.
With the flyers I had printed out, I set out to walk blocks and pass them out to home owners in hopes that they would want to list their home with me.
After passing out all 200 flyers, getting yelled at by home owners, having dogs bark at me like they want to make me their lunch, I returned home and waited to see if anyone would call.
And they did...
I actually got 3 calls and one of those calls turned into a real buyer that bought a real house that got me a real commission too.
It was awesome...
That one sale turned into 3 to 5 home sales a month as I shifted to a Buyer's Agent instead of a Seller's agent.
In between the first buyer I sold a home to, and the road to later sell 3 to 5 homes a month was rough to say the least.
I went through a lot of rejection in order for me to finally start seeing results. I'm talking a LOT of rejection. More than most people, I'd say.
I think that rejection is probably the number one reason (or close to it) that most people these days will not start their own business in real estate or any other business.
Let's face it.
But what if there was a way that you could build your business and avoid 98% to 100% of the rejection that most sales people and small business owners face?
What if instead of chasing prospects only to have them reject you with a big-fat-"NO!"...
...they instead chased you?
What would that do for your self-esteem, your revenue and profits, and your overall lifestyle?
It would be awesome, right? Right.
But how do you go from the pushy sales "guy" or "gal" who chases his or her prospects to being "THE Expert" that prospects are chasing instead?
The answer lies within you positioning yourself as the only logical solution to your prospect's problems, wants, and desires.
It lies within how you "pre-frame" every interaction you have with them, so that you're not always trying to "pitch" your stuff to them and thus forcing them to run from you every time you call.
In today's post, I want to provide you with a special, FREE resource that will show you exactly how to do just that.
Position yourself as the only logical solution to your prospects - THE Expert... that can get your prospects exactly what they want.
How To Position Yourself As THE Expert.
The resource is a free book by Russell Brunson, but... it's not just any book.
It's more like a blueprint or a "success formula" that Russell has developed and leveraged to build a $360 million dollar SaaS company (Software as a service) ...without any venture capital. You can check out the article that Forbes contributor R.L. Adams wrote here.
And the best part is that he shows small business owners how to build their businesses without holding anything back.
Frankly, it's refreshing to see someone actually provide huge value with real proof, instead of just pure hype.
And it doesn't matter if your business is real estate related, or if you sell basket weaving courses - it will help you sell more of whatever it is you sell ...without being pushy and ...without the daily rejection I had to suffer through.
In a nutshell - he shows you the path to becoming THE Expert in your niche in the fastest way possible, and in the most enjoyable way possible too.
But Don't Take My Word For It...

I just found out that Russell Brunson is about to release his new book: "Expert Secrets" - and he wants to send YOU a review copy for FREE!
Trust me when I say that whatever Brunson produces in the form of a product or service is... awesome.
I remember reading one of his first books called, "Dot Com Secrets" and it was eye-opening to say the least. It showed you (with stick figure drawings), how to grow your online or offline company exponentially by using simple to build (but high-converting) sales funnels that took a cold prospect from "I don't know, like, or trust you" to, "WOW! You're amazing and how can I buy, and buy, and buy more from you?!?"
If you want to pick up a free copy of that book, click below and just pay for the shipping for that one too.
What I wanted to share with you today is his NEW book called, "Expert Secrets." And the reason I wanted to share this new book with my readers is simple.
For years, I've encouraged friends and family of mine to record (written or video) their experiences and skill sets and then sell that information to the general public for a profit.
The problem is, that very few of those friends and family have taken my advice out of fear that they weren't really experts in their specific field and nothing to really offer the world.
I completely disagree...
The truth is, we all know more about some topic than others, and by sharing that information with others, we can help them avoid pain or enhance their lives in some way. And these people will actually pay you for your advice, because your advice can help them solve a problem they have - faster and easier and ...without the pain and frustration they're currently experiencing.
And that's what this new book of Brunson is all about...
Helping others while earning a healthy profit from your life's experiences. Check out the book here:
This is what you need to do RIGHT NOW to get your copy:
First - go to this website and let him know where to ship it to (you'll have to pay a tiny shipping fee): Click here now to get the full scoop.
Second - you should probably post on FB, tweet and let EVERYONE else you know about it ASAP (because this cool book promo will be over soon...).
He was going to sell this book for $197, but... before he releases it to the market, he wanted to get some feedback...
