Finding fuel to power you up for success? Are you still running at 40% capacity? 

Join me in this episode as we discover how to run in life at 100% maximum capacity. 

Topics Covered: 

00:55 – Talking about a book called “Can’t Hurt Me’ by David Goggins 

04:36 – How to use your past pain as fuel for your dreams 

04:58 – Dave recalling his own pain that fuels his dream to be a successful entrepreneur 

05:44 – Pushing your limits, running at 100% maximum capacity, and making a new reality 

Key Takeaways: 

“One of the ways that we can use for fuel is digging into our past and all that stuff that we’ve kind of pushed down, pushed aside, and pushed away. David says, use that for fuel for pursuing your dream, whatever it is, don’t hide from it, don’t run away from it, don’t mask it, own it, and use it as fuel.” – Dave Dubeau 

“Goggins talks about the fact that most of us are running at maximum 40% capacity, 40% of what we’re able to actually do. One of the suggestions he has for getting a glimpse at what 100% looks like is through physical exercise, through doing something physical, that you haven’t done before, or pushing your limits.”  – Dave Dubeau

What you’ll learn in just 17 minutes from today’s episode:
  • Learn how multifamily properties rakes in cash flows for you without having to worry over vacancies 
  • Find out how syndication mortgage gives you passive income and a return that pays handsomely 
  • Find out how she was able to quit her full-time job after only two years and still progressively going forward to this day  

Summary: 

Nicole Edmonds began investing in real estate in 2012 after graduating from The University of Western Ontario’s Biology Program. She has invested in both passive and active real estate strategies, including land development projects, syndicated mortgages, student rentals, apartment buildings, and renovation projects, often taking on joint venture partners. She was able to quit her full-time job 3 years ago and now chooses to spend her time traveling, hiking, and working on her bus conversion. 

In this episode, Nicole shares how she started in real estate focusing on student rentals and then moving up to multifamily properties, which she prefers best; it generates cash flows for her every time. Not only that, she keeps herself diversified as she ventured into syndicated mortgages, land development, and even bus conversion. All these make her an active and passive investor at the same time, all giving her a good return on investment. 

Topics Covered: 

01:17 – What investing strategies she’s focusing on at the moment 

02:12 – How she jumped off to real estate after graduating with a Biology major 

03:48 – How and why she started buying turnkey rental properties 

04:38 – Buying an already up and running property with no renovations needed 

05:15 – What her positive cash flow was after expenses from those rental properties 

05:47 – Transitioning from student rentals to multi-family properties 

06:59 – Why she sold her student rental properties and focused on  

08:59 – How it looked like when she just started in real estate 

09:42 – Taking on both sides of being an active and passive investor 

11:15 – How long did she quit her full-time job after getting into real estate 

11:45 – What is a syndicated mortgage? 

12:33 – How to make use of your money which is just sitting there 

13:27 – Also doing private mortgage aside from syndicated ones 

14:32 – Going the speculative strategy with her investments in the US 

16:42 – With the experience she has now, what’s one thing she wouldn’t have done 

18:33 – How the shuttle bus conversion has taken up her time these days   

Key Takeaways: 

“With multifamily properties, I started to see and I was learning and understanding that if you have a vacancy, say in your triplex, you probably only have one unit that’s gone vacant, and you’re still collecting income from two other units. So, the risk is different. It’s better when it comes to multifamily.” – Nicole Edmonds 

“Even the cash flow formulas just kind of work better when you move toward multifamily properties.” – Nicole Edmonds 

“When I was starting, I would describe myself as a very conservative investor because I needed to make sure that these properties were paying for themselves. The income I was making for my job and the cash I had on was not enough to sustain these properties if I had a prolonged vacancy, or if I ran my numbers wrong, or if the repairs and maintenance were higher than I had anticipated. I needed to focus on high cash flow that these properties could completely sustain themselves without me having to put money into it.” – Nicole Edmonds 

“I’ve done syndicated mortgages, they’re usually short-term lending opportunities, like one to two years, and the ones that I’ve done has paid between 14 and 19% per year.” – Nicole Edmonds 

If you’ve got some fund sitting there and want to have your money working all the time, you don’t want it sitting in your bank account. Invest it out, you make 15%, maybe while you’re working on another renovation project or something, and then keep your money working for you.” – Nicole Edmonds

Fear of rejection — who doesn’t have that? 

But, in this episode, let me show you how to overcome that fear and take out that rejection. 

Topics Covered: 

00:29 – The biggest bottleneck that gets in the way of great real estate entrepreneurs 

01:33 – Many reasons why we hold fear in us 

01:51 – Dave sharing his own experience of rejection 

03:51 – Using the marketing idea to attract capital investors 

04:30 – The old traditional way of doing marketing that will surely get you a big rejection 

04:54 – Get smart and use marketing  

Key Takeaways: 

“The biggest bottleneck that gets in the way of otherwise really, really smart, talented, forthright, great real estate entrepreneurs — it’s this issue of the fear of rejection.” – Dave Dubeau 

“Most of us have this fear of rejection but it holds us back from so much.” – Dave Dubeau 

“I realized that I could apply marketing to what I was doing, and get people to come to me kind of pre-interested in what I had, instead of me having to push it on them. And that, that made a complete difference with not only that business but every business I’ve ever been in.” – Dave Dubeau 

“Once I got into using other people’s money for my own real estate deals, and realize that there are lots of investors out there, I said, Hey, why don’t I apply this whole marketing idea to attracting investors raising capital. It works just as well.” – Dave Dubeau 

“Time and circumstances might change their minds. It might not make sense right now, six months down the line, a year down the line, it very well could make sense for them then. It’s still not a rejection. It’s just not right for them at this time. And who knows, that might even turn into a referral if you do it right.”  – Dave Dubeau

Resources/Links:

Summary: 

Cora Cristobal is a real estate professional, real estate investor, real estate mentor, best-selling author, speaker, and Founder of Toronto Women’s Club.  

In this episode, Cora shares the cash-flowing properties she invests in and how she was very profitable the first time she ventured into real estate. She also talks about her goals of getting more women into real estate and more importantly, the mindset you need to have, and the key things you need to do to ensure your way to becoming wealthy. 

Topics Covered: 

01:41 – Focusing on cash-flowing properties 

02:26 – Her bread and butter being single-family homes 

03:49 – The goal of having more women in real estate and the barrier facing women to be in it

Key Takeaways: 

“My bread-and-butter kind of deals should be cash flowing. I don’t focus much on appreciation, although it’s a big factor when I decide where to buy and what to buy. But if I have to get the property, they must be cash flowing for me.” – Cora Cristobal  

“Everything starts from the mindset. Who are you hanging out with, it’s very important.  And I hung out with my husband and people who believe in real estate. For a regular person who does not have that exposure, it’s very hard to switch their mentality. And I got a mentor in real estate to be really a millionaire.” – Cora Cristobal 

“My message is for people to keep growing themselves, to keep investing in yourself, and be careful with the people who you hang around with.” – Cora Cristobal 

“Education will come not only from reading books or going to seminars but also from the people that you normally associate yourself with. Because if people will tell you, you’re crazy, real estate is very dangerous, then that’s what you get. But the people who will encourage you to say, go in real estate, that’s the best route to becoming wealthy.”  – Cora Cristobal

Real estate has a lot of benefits. There is not any other investment out there that gives us so much amount of control over it. 

But the challenge is, not many people understand real estate and its advantages. How do we go about raising capital not focusing so much on ourselves but the investors? 

Join me in this episode as we delve into our patriotic duty towards educating investors. 

Topics Covered: 

00:34 – Rethinking the concept of approaching people to invest with you 

01:32 – How investment choices suck for average people 

02:41- There are up to eight profit centers in a real estate deal 

03:34 – So many benefits in real estate but investors do not understand  

04:04 – Have a grown-up conversation with people and allow them an educated decision for themselves 

Key Takeaways: 

“We’re involved in real estate investing, I don’t know about you, but I firmly believe that a good real estate deal is the best way for everyday folks like you, like me, like our investor partners to get an above-average return on our money backed by a solid, tangible thing, a real piece of property.” – Dave Dubeau 

“What other kind of investment out there offers so many different ways to profit?”– Dave Dubeau 

“What other investment vehicle out there that we can control, we can exercise so much control over, not that I’m aware of, like a really good piece of property.” – Dave Dubeau 

“Here’s the challenge. Our investors don’t understand it. It is our patriotic duty to educate people about our deals, show them what the big benefits are, show them what the risks are as well, and allow them to make an educated decision as to whether they want to invest with you or not.” – Dave Dubeau

Ep.166 – Kick Up Your Context with Jesse Fragale

What you’ll learn in just 17 minutes from today’s episode:
  • Find out how scalable multifamily deals are 
  • Learn how to live a lifestyle you want and not just live every day punching a card around a specific job 
  • Find out how to have the mindset of acting on your fear and becoming successful 

Summary: 

Jesse Fragale is a commercial real estate broker and investor.  He started investing in student rental properties a little over ten years ago. As his passion for investing grew, he began investing in single-family homes and condos. Following this, he transitioned to investing in multi-family apartments, and that is his focus today. 

In this episode, Jesse shares his on-the-go attitude of going after deals of “If people can do it, I’m pretty sure I could do it.” He shares the mindset of getting scared and doing it anyway. As to him, the deals that he is so most proud of are the ones that he was scared of closing on. And look where it has gotten him now — not only stretching out of his comfort zone but also stretching out on to far better deals out there. 

Topics Covered: 

01:01 – Transitioning from single-family homes to multi-family properties 

03:51 – Becoming a broker after years of investing in real estate and what advantage it has given him in running his real estate business 

05:29 – Sharing how his first multifamily deal went about 

07:33 – How he raised capital for his multifamily deals 

09:21 – How did the idea of real estate investing kicked in for him, and who influenced him to pursue it 

11:30 – Why his first deal was a student rental property, and how did he do it despite only nineteen then at the time 

13:33 – What could be the reason why he sees opportunities and go after them while others do not 

14:59 – What mindset has got to do with deals he is most proud of 

17:45 – How socializing with like-minded people and listening to podcasts help him in his real estate business 

Key Takeaways: 

“The move to apartments was the scalability of it. And then I think it was my exposure to the fact like you mentioned, I’m a broker, and my partner, he is a broker specifically in multifamily. So, when you start seeing people do 2030, $50 million deals, all of a sudden, the one to five start looking pretty reasonable and achievable.” – Jesse Fragale 

“I was thinking how does my Dad’s friend afford those big cars. I found out that he owned like 25 single-family rental properties. And that was kind of my first window into this idea that you don’t have to go punch a card every day or have a specific job, you can actually be a business owner or be a landowner.” – Jesse Fragale 

“It wasn’t till years later in university that I saw that friends of mine were renting out places to other friends that they lived with and sometimes your buddies, their parents buy a house in a student residential town, and then they rent out to their friends. So, once I saw that, it kind of all clicked.”  – Jesse Fragale 

“I think the thing that I try to tell people getting into real estate is kind of push yourself to think that there are certain deals that you think you can do right now where you don’t think you can do. And you really can actually go a couple of steps further past that point of comfort.” – Jesse Fragale 

 “The reality is, once you start seeing yourself as having the ability to buy a seven-unit — that means maybe going out to see it, walking the building, going with the agent having those conversations. It becomes more and more part of your DNA or part of your identity.” – Jesse Fragale 

“I know it sounds somewhat far-fetched, but I found that I have always been most proud of deals, looking back. And it’s been the ones that I was the most uncomfortable and slightly scared about closing on.”  – Jesse Fragale
