After Lee developed his highly acclaimed Foreclosure and Short Sale Courses, he began to speak all over the country on these two profitable strategies. In all of his travels, he was constantly bombarded by the same question, “Where do I get the money”? Tired of seeing dreams dashed over something so simple, Lee immediately set out to create the most comprehensive curriculum on the subject of Private Money ever compiled in one place.

Recently featured in Forbes, the Boston Globe, Market Watch, Reuters, and Businessweek as a leading investment strategy expert and as a consultant to Donald Trump’s “Trump University”, Lee Arnold has built a personal fortune with private and hard money transactions. As a Real Estate Broker and Lender of both Private and Hard Money, Lee Arnold has helped countless people in the United States and Canada successfully and lucratively obtain the capital they need to be successful in real estate investment. A master at networking, Lee connects investors to lenders from all over the United States and Canada.

Lee created The Lee Arnold System of Real Estate Investing to teach clients how to translate workbook education and real estate theory into the real world of real estate investment success. However, after years of teaching and mentoring around the nation, he found that education doesn’t mean a lick if the person being taught doesn’t have the capital to put their knowledge into genuine action. Lee already had access to capital, but his students didn’t.

So, Lee took the challenge and created Cogo Capital®, where real estate investors could go for unlimited funds for their non-owner occupied investments. Since then, Lee has been involved in over 1 Billion Dollars-worth of real estate deals with clients.

While the progression seemed natural, they were missing one, very large and essential piece of the pie. The marketplace was teeming with people who had the funds, who aspired to make higher returns on their invested dollar but lacked the desire to get involved in real estate at the ground level.

In light of this opportunity came Secured Investment Corp, which gave people the training they needed to safely lend on first trust liens (real estate), and make higher returns than they were currently seeing in their stock market, bank CDs, or bond investments. As they combined all these facets—training, funding, and the education to lend on real property—they began to notice a progressing trend of growth and success with the clients involved.

Through this model, what they call “The Circle of Wealth,” they noticed that people who entered in at the training level and borrowed funds for their real estate investments eventually became lenders in their own right. They then helped others obtain the capital needed to grow their real estate portfolios. This allowed everyone, on every side, to succeed.

It is their goal that everyone can enjoy some level of success in The Circle of Wealth, and inevitably lap it several times over.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • Lee’s story about how he began working with private money
  • The solution Lee created when he realized some people were looking for money but had deals, while other people had money but didn’t know where to put it
  • Why the strategy of using private money is beneficial for many people
  • Lee’s understanding of owner financing and why that is important to real estate investors
  • Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered: how Lee uses this mantra to drive the way he works with investors
  • Why business is about long term, not short term
  • An amazing, limited time, special offer on Lee’s audio series about how to wholesale property and get paid more
  • A strategy to build capital that is easily available to you
  • How to make a quarter of a million dollars in liquid cash in 12 months without using your own money
  • Multiple benefits of wholesaling
  • Examples of different scenarios where it’s better to borrow money and where it’s better to use your own money
  • Why you shouldn’t come to Lee if you only have a “mind deal”
  • The importance of communication and how it can help you if you need to extend your loan
  • An example of how to free up money by using a community bank
  • Compliance and why it’s imperative you understand the rules and regulations
  • Why cutting corners will only make you constantly turn around and fight battles from your past
  • What money is attracted to and how to use that knowledge to your benefit
  • How following the golden rule can give you success in your business
  • The truth behind common real estate clichés

Loral Langemeier is a true American success story. She did not start out life with money or connections. Rather than realize her obstacles in life, she focused on the possibilities. By age 17, Loral built her first business, a health-training company.

At age 19, while paying her own way through college, Loral created a business specializing in corporate wellness and human performance. As a personal trainer and aerobics instructor, she taught 16 to 18 hours a week, while earning a double degree and playing basketball for her college team.

Loral graduated from the Wesleyan University of Nebraska with Bachelor degrees in Business Administration and Finance, followed by a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Following graduation, Loral contracted with Chevron to teach health, fitness, and nutrition to workers on oil rigs off the coast of New Orleans. At 24, she entered a new contract with Chevron to build over 200 fitness centers on offshore rigs and partnered with a professor of engineering and a team of students at Louisiana State University.

Loral rose to a senior-level position with Fortune 500 Company Chevron in San Francisco and spent five years in corporate America. While continuing her own businesses on the side, Loral developed her secret formula of the wealthy: to manage and build a portfolio to create even greater wealth.

After meeting Robert Kiyosaki in San Francisco (before his Rich Dad, Poor Dad series), Loral created the distribution system of his financial board game Cashflow as a teaching tool for those who want to go back into entrepreneurialism. She approached Kiyosaki about helping expand his cash-flow game and worked with him as a Master Distributor until 2001.

Pursuing her lifelong plan to be a millionaire by age 35, Loral reached that goal two weeks shy of her 34th birthday, while getting ready to be a single mom. Her portfolio at that time contained Real Estate properties, businesses, gas/oil, and notes.

When Dixie Decker was 18 she bought her first house and rented two of its rooms to her friends, meaning she didn’t have to pay a dime for housing during college. Later, she got married, had two beautiful kids, became a mortgage broker and a realtor, and then the 2008 market crashed in both industries, bringing her 10-year marriage down with it. She had to file for bankruptcy because her husband had secretly opened $100,000 worth of credit cards. Working three jobs just to stay afloat, she missed her two girls at home who she had to care for alone. She needed freedom and hated not chasing her dreams!

After two years in corporate America, she ran into her middle school best friend and he brought her in on a new student housing business. When her mentor gave her a unique buying method where she could use other people’s money and credit, they very quickly had six rehab projects going on which they rented as off-campus student housing.

In addition to creating a niche market, Dixie and her business partner revolutionized the profit making potential of rental properties. Using per-room rental rates, they were able to collect multiple checks from one house, while the neighboring landlords collect one. An incredible benefit this provides is they can pay close to market value when buying and then have cash flow that is double and sometimes triple the average investor’s single family rental cash flow. By using lease options she learned her business could do many more rehab projects simultaneously and start earning more money faster.

In just three years Dixie has raised over $5 million in private money. Because of the systems she has in place, her business runs on auto-pilot and, most importantly, she collects over 152 checks each month in the mailbox and has over 40 golden geese with none of her own money in any deal.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • A real estate investing niche that can be incredibly profitable
  • Starting out in real estate even when you have very little funds
  • Doing student housing the right way to protect your investment
  • Strategies that you can use to invest with incredible profits
