REI Bar Camp @ Fuddruckers - Concord
Aug 13 @ 9:30 am – 3:00 pm
Thrive REIA Kick-off Event @ 1515 Restaurant & Lounge
Jan 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Before you know it, 2016 will be gone and you’ll be halfway through 2017.

That’s why I’m writing today: I want to kick off your 2017 with a bang!

And at the end of this email, I’ll tell you why you should invest in a Real Estate Investor Club membership.

More on that later.

First off, I’ve struck a deal with Aaron Amuchastegui. He’s a “do gooder” investor who is finding run-down and abandoned buildings in rural America, rehabbing them, and renting them out to people who really need a break.

In short, he and his team are making the world a better place through real estate redevelopment.

Plus, he’s a cool guy and I love his case studies. He employs video like nobody’s business to get his message out there.

Along those same lines, I’m putting together a mastermind for active investors where we focus on acquiring single family homes and small multi-family units. We’ll spend time researching markets, sourcing opportunities, and finding properties we will invest in.

If you want in on this, keep reading.

Latest Deal

My business partner and I bought a 3 BR, 1 ½ Bath, 1560 square foot single family home for $22,000. We put another $12k into rehabbing it, for a total investment of $34k (none of our own money, by the way).

Our ARV is $80-85k.

We’re already renting it out at $1200/month.

Our net income from this property is $557/month.

Equity in the deal: $46-51k, again, with none of our own money.

Sound like something worth considering?

Yeah, I thought so…

We use Oncarrot ( for our lead gen and Rehab Valuator ( for our property analysis.

Now, tying it all together: Everything below is included in your Thrive REIA charter membership.

· You get access to all of the live events we put on throughout 2017, including our first, as described above.

· I will be publishing all the case studies for the properties I’ve acquired in my cashflow business.

· An added benefit of a Thrive membership is inclusion in my Cashflow Mastermind. You won’t pay an extra dime to get in. It’s included.

And you can’t get in UNLESS you’re a Thrive REIA member.

Of course, there will be tons more.

The networking opportunities you will get to experience will be worth 10x your investment alone. I’m being conservative here.

Plus, all the live events. And the virtual events we’ll do on a frequent basis. The case studies we’ll share…

I could go on and on.

Next year, each live event I conduct will have a minimum $25 registration fee. Some will be a lot more.

You get to go to all of them as a Thrive REIA charter member, all for one special very low introductory price of $97 (click here for the special price) for all of 2017.

Real Estate Investor Club – register now before the price goes up.

And please RSVP to this event – it’s filling up fast.

Thrive Real Estate Investment Club

Note School July 22, 2017 @ Land Home Financial
Jul 22 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Real estate investors usually learn the hard way about diversification. You put all your eggs in one basket (say, a house flip) and hope that the market doesn't wipe you out.

Eventually, in the long run, you may earn a positive net income. But from time to time, you will lose money on a house flip or rehab.

It just happens.

I'm here to tell you that you should diversify your sources of income. Seems so obvious, right?

Well, I've recently learned a lot about real estate notes, aka promissory notes, or just notes for short.

And in my research, I found a great class that I want to share with you.

July 22, 2017 (a Saturday), I'm holding a class in Concord, run by the guys at Note School.

It's an all-day event starting at 9am. From 9 to noon, Joe Varnadore will teach how we can benefit from getting in the notes business. At noon, we'll break for lunch (I'm providing lunch, so don't worry).

Then at 1pm, we'll reconvene with Joe and he'll share his infinite notes wisdom until 5pm.

Sound good? Just RSVP below – first 20 tickets sold will be $20 (that is a steal of a deal), thereafter tickets will be $50.

Obviously, it's best to get your tickets now. And definitely, mark the date!
