Two weeks ago John Schaub and I presented “Generating Cash Flow During Uncertain Times” to the Bay Area Wealth Builders Association in San Francisco. John and I have known each other for years, but we have never worked together. In fact, this was the first time I had ever presented a seminar with anyone else, so I had no idea how it would go.

I am happy to report that the weekend was well received. I think this was largely because John & I did not collaborate in creating each section that we presented; John wrote his material in Florida and I wrote mine in Colorado. The attendees received two different seminars on how to generate bottom-line cash flow today. Everyone could see that John and I had similar views on much of the real estate business, but they also had the benefit of seeing the differences in how we approach the market. John is an excellent teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to share the podium with him.

I came away believing that our different viewpoints actually made the seminar more powerful and offered something for everyone who attended. Whereas John felt that right now may be the best time in your life to buy as many houses as you can because of pending inflation, I took a more cautionary view that real estate has not yet hit bottom and presented some other ways to control real estate and generate income without always going into ownership.

The evaluations we received indicated that everyone planned to implement some of the concepts presented. A big joy in teaching is to hear from past students that they have successfully made money from something that you have shared. I have already heard from several who are attempting to implement and look forward to hearing of their future success.
