Hey Moguls, Preston Ely here…

I started my real estate business with very little money. I was definitely living week to week. I had 15 rental properties and they were all eating me alive like an anaconda swallowing a turkey. This forced me to get creative.

But that “very little money” did actually help me to be able to do mailers. But, but what if you don’t even have that much? What will you do if your budget is $0?

First of all, read Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker as many times as it takes for the truth of it all to finally hit you. You being broke is not due to whatever you think it is due to. It is merely the symptom of your false beliefs about money and rich people. I knew this before reading the book, but he really hammers it home like no one else I’ve ever heard.

But let’s also actually make some money RIGHT NOW while we are rewiring our minds for success. Do the following and you will get leads…


I can’t tell you how many students of mine have made money with me, and when I ask where their leads are coming from, they reply “just getting out there and talking to people.” And they’re telling the God’s honest truth.

This is how I started as well. I merely got business cards printed up (like the one I have clearly sketched out in my original e-book on wholesaling that I literally sold a bagillion copies of, yep, literally a bagillion)… made a goal of how many I would pass out per day, and stuck to it.

I actually bought and sold a house for a $50,000 profit my first week of doing this. The story of exactly how I did this is found smack dab in the middle of my wholesaling e-book.

If you don’t like talking to strangers, you are going to need to overcome this. Simply force yourself to do it (keeping your goal of financial freedom clearly in mind for motivational support), and then your feelings will quickly change.

It’s rarely the other way around. Our feelings betray us quite regularly. A big piece to your success in life will be your ability to act contrary to your fickle flakey feelings. (Say that 10 times fast). Your feelings want to kill you.

I’m serious.


You can print unlimited flyers from the comfort of your home computer for merely the price of paper and ink. I have a fantastic flyer in my original wholesaling e-book for you to use.

FlyerSimply run your behind up and down streets, sticking them on the outsides of mailboxes until you’re rich and skinny. I had a student do this once with great success. His wife actually started having sex with him again as a side bonus.

(“*Gasp* “He said S-E-X in his lesson, Marge! What is this world coming to?”)

Listen, Homer, last time I checked, sex between a husband and wife was perfectly acceptable. SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX It’s part of life. Get over it.

Free Online Classified Ads

This is by far my favorite free thing to do. For obvious reasons (no manual labor)...

I recommend Craigslist.org and Backpage.com. You can post ads there for free, and you WILL get leads.

An added bonus is that search engines oftentimes pick up these ads and display them for the world to see. For FREE.

Get out there and make it happen, my friend. If you want it – you’ll get it.

How bad do you want it?

Do It To It! Immediate Action Steps

Network your tush off – get over your shyness or insecurities and talk to people.

Distribute flyers all over the place and then go to another area and do it again.

Post your ads and deals on Craigslist and Backpage and watch the leads pour in.
