When Things Go Sideways: Powering Through 'The Dip'

Remember when your real estate investor business train chugged out of the station? Everything was shiny and new… You were almost delirious with excitement. The train built up a good head of steam – you made a few transactions and made a little money.

You’re thinking, “Hey this stuff really works. Look out world.” At this point, you are 1,000% confident that you’re on your way to the top…

But then all of a sudden something happens. More accurately, life happens. You get slammed. Now what? Well, Mr. Craig Fuhr is gonna tell us how to get back on track.

Turn Your Dip into a Blip

In this awesome video lesson, you’re going to learn how to take these dips along the way and view them as a mere blip on the radar – not a dream-killing crash. You have a choice to get back on the track and keep going, or allow the momentum-killers (the dip) to bring you to a grinding halt.


What are some of these momentum-killers? You’ll learn about 3 major causes of the dip:

1. Failure to prepare yourself for real life while reaching for your dreams – you gotta think ahead.

2. Mistaking actions for results – just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you’re moving forward.

3. Shiny object syndrome – when things slow down temptations come to draw you away to the next big thing coming down the pike.

Learn from the Guy Who’s Been There

Craig Fuhr has lived through a number of dips in his life – the biggest being when he got fired from his job the day after his 40th birthday. Did he derail? Absolutely not. He jumped into his entrepreneurial gifting and made the leap into real estate investing. Since then he's flipped more than 150 houses and has had as many as 10 projects in rehab simultaneously.

This is definitely someone you’ll want to listen to. Check it out.

Did learning about the 3 major causes of the dip help you? I love hearing from you so tell me about it below.


Do It To It! Immediate Action Steps

Prepare yourself ahead of time – realize and understand that there’ll be dips along the way – so there’ll be no surprises.

Determine at the outset that you will not quit – especially when you know there are long-term rewards at stake.

Make up your mind – if you do get derailed, be determined to get back on track as quickly as possible.

Get a copy of – and read – Seth Godin’s book, The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick).
