3 Things We Learned From David Dodge
- 90% of our business is sales and marketing. In practice, our business is marketing and our product is real estate.
- There’s cash now, cash flow and cash later. Cash now is a job, cash flow is rentals and leverage using real estate, and cash later is appreciation of the assets.
- Don’t make building your buyer’s list your main goal, focus on marketing for motivated sellers.
