Best Way To Get Into Business

00:20 – Ready for business?
00:40 – Busy, busy, busy
01:35 – How to do business

Hey, guys. How are you going? It’s Rick Otton speaking from, and I was running my mentoring course the other day as I normally do, which is my one-year mentoring course where people come in and learn how to buy lots of properties without spending a lot of money.

One of the students wasn’t quite getting the results he was looking for, and I sent him a question. “Let me ask you something. Are you in business, or are you in the business of getting ready for business?” So here’s my question to all of us today. Are we actually in business or are we in the business of getting ready for business? Let’s have a look at that in today’s little video.

Okay, here I am back again. It’s a little bit warm in the office, but hey. So here’s the deal. Sometimes what we do, right, is we get so busy getting ready to get busy to do business, we spend the whole time with that. So we get out of the office, we set ourselves up, we go, ooh, we’ll get some stapler there, we’ll put some paper there, and we’ll get the phone there, and then we’ll reorganise that. We might actually reorganise our little office area for two or three weeks. So then we get ready to meet somebody, but before we do we better go to the copy machine and get a cup a coffee.

And then, actually, in fact, when you think about it, we’re so close to lunch, we’ll just go to lunch. Then we’ll get back from lunch, we’ll make some calls, then we’ll go meet some people. And then, oh my God, the afternoon newspaper’s just come in. We’ll have a quick glance at that. And, but oh heck, I’ll tell you what, it looks like there’s some new legislation happening in property. Well, we better investigate that before we actually get in the business of doing any business.

So at the end of the day you’re the best person in the business of getting ready for business, but we’ve done absolutely no business. Here’s how business works. Just get in the coffee shop and start meeting people. Start meeting buyers and sellers, and as a default, the business will just come from somewhere. If you shake enough trees, enough paw-paws are gonna drop down and hit you on the head. So it’s all about being in the game. I love being in the game. Let’s not worry about getting ready to do some business. Let’s do some business and let all that other readiness stuff fix itself a little bit later on.

Hey, my name is Rick Otton from, and if you’ve found this tip useful, share it with your friends and click here.
