7 Steps to Your 1st Rental Property
Set a goal.  Write that goal down and put it where you will see it every day. Reverse engineer your Freedom Number, and determine what it will take to reach that. Clayton provides a free resource to help you determine your freedom number. Check it out here.
Find a deal. Use wholesalers, turn key providers, real estate agents, or hunt for deals on your own.
Calculate the Return on Investment (ROI). ROI = (Monthly Rent x 12 months x 0.6) / All in cost of property
Take action! Analyze deals, make offers, and follow through with consistent action. Don’t get stuck in analysis paralysis.
Get a property inspection. This will help you protect your downside. You will uncover any potential problems with the property and use that information to determine if you want to purchase the property.

Rinse and repeat!At age 13, Clayton saw his dad lose his job. Ever since then he had a fear about money, and he always knew there had to be a more entrepreneurial way of creating wealth. He got into real estate investing to secure a future for his family so they didn’t have to go through the same financial pain as he did growing up. After years of success building up an enormous amount of passive income through real estate investing, Clayton started Morris Invest because he realized his passion is in helping first time real estate investors learn they don’t have to just work for a paycheck, and they don’t need $1 million to achieve financial freedom.

136: Overnight Success – Friday Fundamentals


It takes a lot of days and nights to become an overnight success. Here are 5 things you can do every day to position yourself for success down the road.

Read every single day. Reading is like fuel for your mind. It exercises your brain, while taking in what could be valuable information (depending on what you’re reading). Set aside 10 minutes every morning to read. Keep your book by your nightstand and every night before bed read a few pages, rather than surfing social media, watching TV, or staring at the ceiling.
Write down goals every day. The act of writing down your goals has been proven is many scholarly studies to increase your chances of achieving those goals. It keeps the goal at the forefront of your mind. Once you have that big goal, break it into monthly, weekly, and even daily steps to achieve.
Listen to podcasts. You’re already doing this so great for you! Running, commuting, and working out are great times plug in some headphones and catch up on your favorite podcasts.
Do something, no matter how big or small, every day. Consistent action turns into habits. These habits will generate long term results far beyond your imagination.
Replace bad habits with good ones. By eliminating a bad habit, you’re shedding dead weight. By replacing it with a good habit, you’re just adding fuel to your fire to become an unstoppable machine! For example, you could cut back on your use of social media, and replace it with said podcast/book/reviewing your goals.Real estate investing is a lot like climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.

134: Networking – Friday Fundamentals


In this episode we’re going to focus on the relationship component. Life is full of relationships, from family and friends, to coworkers and casual acquaintances, to your hair stylist or the barista at your local coffee shop. Our lives are built around intricate webs of relationships. In fact, it’s been this way for millennia. Here’s one example to prove just how important relationships are to us. One of society’s most severe forms of punishment is solitary confinement and isolation. We, as humans, are social creatures. We thrive on interacting with other humans. Yes, even introverts need human interaction from time to time. It should be no surprise, that relationships play a vital role in our lives, and ultimately our success.
