Jessi Smith Jeff Lerner Reviews
Meet Jessi Smith from California. She started ENTRE three months ago and she says the trajectory of her life has completely changed. She is currently the director of operations at a restaurant group and she enjoys her job but it's long hours and not something she sees herself doing forever. ENTRE has opened her eyes to new possibilities. She dove into the ENTRE Agency curriculum and can finally see a path to spending more time with friends and family and following other passions in life. With dedication and consistency, in two weeks of actively engaging with prospective clients, she's landed two 6 month contracts totalling $4500 per month. ENTRE has taught Jessi how to find balance in her current day-to-day and even better, they have taught her that she can make big changes in her life.
On today’s Millionaire Secrets podcast I chat with Stacy Tuschl, founder of The Foot Traffic podcast (over 1 million downloads) and The Foot Traffic Formula digital program.
Stacy is an interesting guest because she’s transitioned from the brick & mortar realm of entrepreneurship to the digital one.
And she’s made millions in both!
Her journey into the business world started just as she was ending college.
Stacy always had a passion for teaching dance. Her love for it stretched so far that she actually taught dance classes for free at her parent’s home.
A healthy class of 17 students soon turned into a booming school of 100.
And she was still teaching it for free
Luckily for Stacy, she comes from a family of entrepreneurs. Her parents took her aside one day and pointed out that she had a legitimate business opportunity staring her in the face!
And so Stacy’s first dance studio was born.
It didn’t take long before one studio became two. (A 7-figure business in its own right!)
And shortly after that…
She took her first steps into the world of online business. Stacy now teaches other brick and mortar business owners to make the transition from the real world to the…
In the second half of the podcast, we really dig into the importance of video for success in digital business in 2020.
Stacy has been at the podcast game since 2015 - an early adopter.
And she is grateful for so many opportunities that have come her way thanks to…
...putting herself out there.
Although I’ve only been running a podcast for a few months at this stage, I’ve been making videos on Youtube for several years now too.
And I can only agree with Stacy.
Putting myself out there, facing my demons - as a shy and introverted character - is one of the best things I’ve ever done for my business.
It’s given me so many opportunities.
If you’re not getting on camera. If you’re not adapting to video in 2020 and beyond…
...then you’re missing out big time!

Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
David M Greene (Author), Randy Streu (Narrator), BiggerPockets Publishing (Publisher)
4.7 out of 5 stars
Be where you want to be and invest wherever it is sensible!
Are you considering investing in real estate but you can't find anything to purchase that is sensible in the area you reside? Are you bored of seeing the phenomenal success of others investing in markets that are better to buy and hold property and wish that it might be your situation? Are you looking to profit from opportunities to build wealth but are dissatisfied because there isn't a way to do it until the next crash?
Real estate investing is among of the best ways to earn wealth, however it's not a good fit in every market. Certain areas offer incredible returns, while other locations make it nearly impossible to locate a single property that earns. Traditionally, investing outside of state is considered to be risky and not advisable.
However, the rules, technology and market conditions have changed You are no longer required to invest in your own backyard! An experienced real estate agent and investor David Greene shares his in-depth strategy for building rent-producing portfolios by buying or managing and flipping out-of-state properties.
Expand your real estate investment business anywhere in the world.
Develop friendships with your team distances.
Know when to expect changes within any industry.
Make use of technology to keep you informed from distance.
Check your balances and checks to ensure that you are getting the most affordable deals.
Know where to purchase the best items, what to avoid and who you should hire to work for.
Don't let your location dictate your financial freedom. Learn how to invest - and make money regardless of where you live!
Excellent information that covers both the big picture and the nitty-gritty details
Reviewed in the United States on December 17, 2017
This book does a great job of covering out-of-state (OOS) real estate investing for rentals and flips. First, the author David breaks through the mental barriers to OOS investing. Why not invest where your money gets the best return? The internet makes it possible to find great deals in markets with good returns and not a ton of competition.
David doesn’t fly out and see homes and hands-on manage rehabs himself. Instead, he’s built systems where he uses trusted (but verified) professionals in his OOS markets – realtors, lenders, property managers, contractors. These professionals independently verify each other’s work and report to him using video technology.
You can read through the table of contents to see that most topics you would want to know about are addressed. Most importantly, David doesn’t discuss these topics in just vague generalities. For example, you want to avoid high crime areas? Check the Trulia crime heat map. What smartphone apps are most helpful? He names some. How to motivate your vendors? Various ways – including paying them bonuses. The details are all here for you to use.
This book is well worth the investment of your time and money, especially considering that you could make or lose thousands of dollars on just one OOS investment.

The Knowledge from this Book + Taking Action = Financial Freedom
Reviewed in the United States on January 14, 2018
If you are willing and determined to take action, this book has the potential to change your life. David Greene, with this book, gives you enough tools and resources to succeed in real estate investing, specially if you are investing in out-of-state properties. Many of the areas covered by the book included, but were not limited to, how to analyze a deal (current + potential income vs expected and unexpected expenses), differences between price appreciation and positive cash flow (as the book points out, a smart investor can have both), return on investment (ROI) vs return on equity (ROE)... and when is appropriate to use each, and why market downturns should be celebrated instead of feared. Most importantly, the book is phenomenal at explaining how to build your TEAM, who needs to be in the team, how to find these professionals, and how to leverage these relationships. In addition, the book is engaging and entertaining as Mr. Greene adds multiple real-life anecdotes and quotes and shares websites and mobile apps to simplify the process. A must read.

This book is great for long, medium and short distance real estate investors
Reviewed in the United States on July 5, 2018
This book is a good fit for you whether you are thinking to invest in real estate from just a short 0.5 mile distance, or medium 300 mile or 7000 mile long distance. I had pre-ordered this book and was one of the 1st buyers in line. This is not to brag, but to say this book was important to me. I have been investing and managing properties from a very long distance for about 10 years. David Greene's practical advice and healthy business mindset in this book helped me to bring my investments to the next level recently. Beginners and advanced level investors will find great wisdom nuggets in this book. Now my paper book is full of pencil markups and yellow stickers. After reading all pages, occasionally I like to go back to re-read some of the pages and chapters again.
He retired at 34 from investing out of state!
Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2019
If your curious who David Greene is just google him. He was a cop who retired himself at 34 from saving money and investing in real estate out of state. If there is anyone who can teach you how to this this I think your top pick should be someone like David who’s crushed it in this department. There’s nothing I dislike more than a guru who hasn’t walked his talk and with David you can trust that he’s experienced all of this himself.
I have owned local rentals for over 10 years. I always wanted to invest out of the area but had no idea how. Now thanks to David’s book I have purchased 11 units out of state and they are cash cows.
Do your self a favor. Pick up the book and study it. Put it to action and don’t look back!

Great Investing Book All Around!
Reviewed in the United States on January 8, 2018
David’s book is titled to help people investing out of state and he does a great job laying out a plan for them but does much more than that. The book just outlines what successful real estate investing should look like regardless of where you are investing.
Some of the strategies in this book are explained more clearly or are new to me and I’ve read dozens of real estate investing books. It’s also given me insight into how to handle my out of state investments better which doesn’t hurt!

Long Distance or Not, This is an Essential Primer in Rental Property Investing
Reviewed in the United States on February 4, 2022
This was actually the first book I ever read on rental property investing, which ultimately piqued my interest so much, I went on to read 6 more and counting.
David has a knack for breaking down the process of rental property investing into these teeny, tiny manageable bites that just make it so easy for ANYONE to get started. I bought my first rental property after completing this book and have not looked back, since buying 3 more units.
This is an essential read for anyone interested in rental property investing, period, and shouldn't simply be reserved for those looking to do so long-distance.
The processes David describes for Long Distance are super applicable anywhere. Why? Because investing someplace that isn't nearby forces you to implement systems, and those systems work everywhere, and I'd argue make you an even better investor than DIY'ing this part over here and that piece over there, just because the property is close-by and "you can".
If you are remotely considering rental property investing, you will not regret reading this.
Reviewed in the United States on April 14, 2021
This is a great value. Although I would rate Brandon Turner's book on Rental Property as a more inclusive read, I definitely learned from this book. If you like bigger pockets, you would like this book. It is a little long-winded, but overall I felt this book saved me money as it prevented me from making some mistakes.

Theory and practice, masterfully combined----this book is a MUST read!
Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2019
I’ve listened to several real estate podcasts and read various real estate books for numerous years now, but I have always hesitated to invest. No matter how much information I heard or read, I was consumed by fear and analysis paralysis. Both of David’s books (Long Distance Real Estate Investing and BRRRR) have been gamechangers for me. They have equipped me with a plan and resolution to begin my real estate investing journey and purchase my first property in the next few weeks. Buying, reading, and applying the information in these books is easily one of the greatest investments in my life!
Through his books, David stripped away every single one of my excuses and provided me with a fail-proof plan to execute. David has a big brain and a big heart. Not only is he a savvy investor with a wealth of knowledge and experiences (a true master in his craft); he is also a compassionate teacher with a servant’s heart (he knows exactly what it’s like to be in the shoes of a beginner).
If you’re ready to be empowered with powerful analogies, real-life experiences, sage wisdom, practical tools, step-by-step guides, time-tested systems and models, scripts, tips and tricks, etc., you must read these books! I highly recommend them!
I’m eagerly waiting for his upcoming book on systems!

Actionable Wisdom from Someone who Walks the Walk
Reviewed in the United States on December 26, 2018
Mr. Greene explains key real estate concepts which all investors can benefit from hearing. 1. the core 4 to build a team in any market is a great framework for getting started before you jump in. In particular, his "how to" for managing contractors was particularly helpful as this is often the most challenging piece of any renovation. 2. In terms of lead generation for finding new properties, this is the most sound and actionable advice I have come across. Mr. Greene provides 4-5 concrete examples of how to find properties with opportunity which anyone can use. 3. Mr. Greene is a master of the metaphor and I appreciated his ability to simplify complex concepts at first from a high level perspective and next by unpacking each concept and getting in the weeds with his real life examples.
Cons: As others have mentioned, there are times where the book could be more concise, however I had no problem reading the entire book in 2 days.
Final Takeaway. Well worth the $18 as it will pay for itself many times over if you put in to practice what Mr. Greene preaches.
Well written and easy to understand concepts that can be used by anyone ...

As a long distance real estate investor myself, I wish I had found this book earlier. It would have saved a lot of headache and money. Well written and easy to understand concepts that can be used by anyone looking to invest in real estate outside of one's hometown. Plenty of tips, advice and template/letters that I can refer back to from time to time.

This book is both insightful and reaffirming of the information that I already know. If you are interested in looking out of state to invest in real estate I highly recommend that you give this book a read. David Greene explains how to use other people's skills to your own advantage and make the best use of your own skills (and time). The book points out the different methods and ways of hacking certain relationships such as those with contractors, agents, tenants, lenders...etc, which I found to be very helpful. David explains the myths of long distance investing and how, in this present age, it is a game changer for being able to continue your investing career while living in an expensive market. I personally will continually use this book as a reference as I continue to look to other cities and states to either flip or own rentals. Highly recommend this book as well as all other books that Bigger Pockets puts out.
Informative, specific, and well written. Great book!

This is a great book that talks about how to invest out of state without a turnkey company. It talks about different subjects in detail, yet it's very easy to read. This book will benefit both new investors and experienced investors who is thinking about purchasing an investment property out of state (or without seeing it).

Overall this was a great book for a beginner in real estate investing with quite a few actionable steps that I can take now, and even more for the future with more experience.
Sure, as others have said there are some grammatical errors and clunky sentences, and there’s definitely a bit of "fluff". But honestly, for less than $10 (kindle version), I’m willing to look past that because I’m confident the tips in this book will pay for it many times over.
Even if you get one tip or suggestion that makes/saves you a few hundred bucks or more, isn’t that worth it for $10 and a few evenings of reading? I think so. Would recommend.

I learned about David Greene and his book, Long-Distance Real Estate Investing, from the BiggerPocket’s podcast. The podcast’s title (of the same name as Greene’s book) immediately caught my attention. Like the author, I also live in the completely unaffordable Bay Area, and although I sell to my clients in the area, I cannot buy there myself. As a strict believer in the old “buy in your backyard” adage, it never seriously crossed my mind that it was an option. In fact, I tuned in to the podcast as a skeptic. After listening to the podcast and hearing Greene’s unique ideas (and unique ideas can be hard to come by in the world of real estate!), I immediately purchased his book.
Greene’s book has a conversational tone and is bursting with original and specific ideas. I found myself taking a highlighter to nearly every bit of ink on the pages. A problem I find with many real estate investing books is that they are too vague and conceptional to be practical. Greene lays out his brilliant ideas (hello, Core Four!) with actionable solutions. Greene turns every stone over in his book, from large idea concepts like down markets to little (but crucial) tips like the best apps to have on your smartphone.
This book is an instant investor classic for first time buyer or savvy investor. Add it to your library!
