In this episode of “The Secrets to Real Estate Investing” with Hard Hat Holly, we get the opportunity to sit down with one of our younger and newer investors, Steven Pesavento. This mover and shaker knew early on that the working the corporate grind was not going to provide a fulfilling life for him. Steven got started in real estate only a year and a half ago, and he hasn’t looked back since. The main hurdle he had to get over were his own limiting beliefs, which he graciously dives into with us today. While first getting started on this incredible journey, this inspirational young man made 80 offers which led to exactly zero deals. Demonstrating that if you want true success one must never give up, Steven kept on. Talk about perseverance! He stresses the importance of creating a team and a winning network, and what it means to have grit and tenacity in this business. Today he will share with our listeners many of the simple yet powerful techniques we all can use to increase our income by investing in key markets so we can achieve financial freedom and live the life of our dreams!
 
In this episode, you’ll learn about…
 
● Getting past your own limiting beliefs
● How to surround yourself with the right people
● Direct mail marketing and various response rates in Southern California and other key markets
● Other marketing methods that Steven employs - cold calling, pay per click, Facebook, etc.

He is now an expert in seller financing, subject to, land trusts, and lease options. And if that wasn’t enough, Adam is a master at sales negotiation as well.

In 2003, Don thought he was too big to fail. He was making money hand over fist flipping houses when the crash came and it all came tumbling down. This man literally lost everything. Don hit rock bottom when he found himself paying for gas with
quarters and having his debit card decline very publicly at Taco Bell. Today he shares with our listeners many of the powerful lessons that he learned after going to hell and back. Tune in and
listen to these powerful insights so that you too can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and achieve financial freedom through real estate! Go out there, take action, and live

● How to treat your business like a business, how to stay focused in your investing

business

marketing”

is his best proven method by far

relationships.
