For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been on the lookout for wisdom.

The funny thing about wisdom is that it comes in many different forms, it can be gleaned from all kinds of situations and you’ll hear it in all kinds of places.

One unexpected place where I’ve found MANY such examples of this is from LifeProTips on Reddit. There is some CRAZY good advice here!

After several months of collecting the best nuggets of wisdom I could find, I decided to compile 20 of them here on the blog, because I think they’re all worth taking to heart.

The Best Real Estate Investing Strategy I’ve Found

The most powerful strategy I've used to build my real estate investing career is NOT what you might guess.

Land investing (that's right, buying and selling vacant land) is a massive opportunity that most investors aren't paying attention to. For the few land investors who know how to pursue this business with the right acquisition strategy, it's an extremely lucrative and low-risk way to build serious wealth from real estate.

If you want to get the inside scoop on how to start and run your own land investing business, come and check out the Land Investing Masterclass – where I've put together a full 12-module course with dozens of videos, bonuses, downloads, group coaching sessions and a members-only forum (where we spend time answering questions every week). There is no better place to learn this business from the inside out!

      Good share.. I believe in it too

  5. Leo Wainhouse says:

    I like your 20 pieces of wisdom especially the ones about dealing with people. I was fortunate enough to have a “life coach” in my former employment and took away those nuggets and many more. How about “ Listen for understanding, not for your own response back”. If you practice this it’s crazy how you can build relationships.

    1. I love that! Thanks for sharing Leo. 🙂
