|Tommy Lasorda was known as the great baseball ambassador and mentor to players and coaches of the game and just recently he passed away. Tommy will be missed by many people especially by his large Los Angeles Dodger’s fan base – I live in L.A. and I’ve raised my kids going to Dodgers games so I’m a HUGE fan.|
But do you know who will miss him the most?
It’s all the people he has ever coached or mentored.
You see mentors play a huge part in the development and long-term success of a person, regardless of what field they are in.
Very early in my real estate career I had an MVP of a mentor. His name was Barney Zick and he had been in the real estate business for a lifetime. He had done just about every type of deal that you can imagine and was one of the most valuable resources I had when I was starting out.
It’s been over 20 years since Barney passed but I can still clearly remember our conversations.
Just like Tommy Lasorda, Barney was a coach through and through because he inspired me, gave me pep talks, and walked me through the toughest deals.It’s funny how life comes full circle.Just like Barney, I’ve done just about every creative financing deal that is out there throughout the United States. And I too have now in this real estate business for what you younger folks might say is a lifetime.
When I reflect back and think about people who have walked in our footsteps before us, I think about how they must have struggled to overcome the challenges that were presented to them in their field and in their day. I too have enjoyed being a “coach” for various years and have specialized in or around the world of probate and inherited real estate.
To be honest, I want to make sure that I am doing my best to serve you just like Barney did for me.It’s for this reason that I want to ask you for a big favor…Please email and let me know what you want to learn more about within the real estate niche. Maybe it’s an area that you feel stuck in, or maybe it’s a concern you may have as we move further into 2021.
I believe the torch must always be passed on.
Barney left an enormous wealth of information with me. Even though I have been able to share this information and advice with hundreds upon hundreds of students for the last 20 years, I know that I haven’t even scratched the surface.As you already know, the sky is the limit when it comes to real estate. I am super excited to share what I know in these weekly emails with you so that you too can experience the same incredible success and freedom that I’ve found
.So again, please help me help you by emailing right now and letting me know what you are struggling with or want to learn more about.
