Who Is Tai Lopez?

If you’re wondering who Tai Lopez is then where have you been? Tai has become quite the celebrity over the past couple of years. It all started with his here in my garage ad, and then later his here in my backyard ad. Basically these were adverts that Tai filmed in order to get more attention towards himself so he could help people. He’s openly admitted that the reason he uses fast cars and his mansion is to attract people. He wants to inspire young people to read books but he knows that if he just puts up a video of him reading a book that’s not going to get anyone interested in reading books.

However if he shows off his big house, his nice cars, that will act as a hook to show people what’s possible when you get educated and read more books. Tai boasts the worlds biggest book club and he claims to have helped more people than anyone else in history get out of the ghetto and start reading books.

Tai Lopez has also been featured in many top publications including Inc and Entrepreneur. In fact he was ranked the no.1 social media strategist by Entrepeneur.com a pretty impressive title to say the least considering some of his competition.

There are a number of blogs covering Tai Lopez’s story. Many of them are not very honest and simply slam him, while others praise him. We found the real truth about Tai Lopez here so if you are interested check out that article and learn the truth.

How To Generate Passive Income With Real Estate

Have you ever thought about investing in real estate? Did you know that real estate can provide a long term stable cash flow plus potentially raise in value? There’s many ways to make money in real estate and it’s hard to know which is the best way to really go however we’ve consulted a few experts and found out what they think.

Multi-Family Is The Future…

One of the real estate gurus we came across was Grant Cardone. Grant has been featured in a number of publications including Forbes and Entrepeneur. He’s the man who has nearly 500 million worth of multi-family real estate. Grant Cardone was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He’s a self made man. Born into a middle-class family Grant’s father died when he was 10 years old, and then his older brother when he was 20.

Grant stumbled through his 20’s and even got involved in with drugs and alcohol. By his late 30’s Grant turned his life around, crushed sales in the automotive industry and then started out on a speaking career. Over the next couple of decades Grant built a very successful speaking career and then moved into real estate.

Now Grant’s known all over the world, he’s a sought after speaker and has approximately 500 million dollars of real estate. He’s a serious boss and someone we can all learn a lot from.

How To Earn With Real Estate

So how do you earn with real estate and how can you actually get involved? Grant Cardone the man himself recommends that you only go with multi-family real estate. Grant got burned early on when he bought a single property. Grant says that single properties are a bad investment because let’s face it, if you have a tenant and they move out you are left with an empty property. If you have a block of apartments then it doesn’t matter if a few of them are empty, the ones that are occupied will cover the cost of the others.

Obviously there are many other benefits too, but this is what Grant recommends and what he has $500 million of his own money in. Pretty impressive to say the least, and clearly when someone has amassed this much wealth you should pay attention because clearly he knows what he is doing.

The great thing about real estate is that you can basically buy a property for 25% of the value. Think about it for a minute. You want to buy a property for $100,000 and you need a 25% deposit to get the bank loan. So you save $25,000 and then they loan you $75,000 so you can buy the property. You then go and rent it out, and a tenant is basically paying the cost of your mortgage. So how much did you buy the property for, was it $100,000? No, you got it for $25,000. That’s the amount of money you needed and now someone else is paying down your debt. This is what real estate is great. Plus you’ll get monthly cash flow on that $25,000 investment you made.
