Solving problems pays BIG. Excuses are for the weak.
I see properties everyday that have problems. Some are as simple as the need a make ready, and others need a proposal outlining experts opinions and state documents to fill in 3 acres of "wetlands" on a 7 acre plot.
But here is the thing...that make ready deal ain't gonna make you much roi. And the other one could make you bank! What are you willing to do? What issues need resolving? Are you going to "work outside the box" or follow the advice of bs experts who you've "heard say"?
Bottom line is this, I make most of my deals work because others were too lazy, scared, willingful ignorant, or too cocky. I have no "secret" to my success. Its 20yrs of being "in it" day in and day out.
Its not something you learn reading books or taking classes, even though both of those can be great resources of knowledge. Its a willingness to fail, but to know you will try again until you succeed. Its not about insisting on a step by step, planned out path to success. Its about refusing to quit.
