I find it very difficult to go out and post signs and talk to strangers on the street and hand out business card. However right now they seem to be the most effective methods of marketing. (in Canada, many other methods are unavailable to beginners)
Now If you have bought a property, even just one, it is easy to do those things. Psychologically you have identified yourself to be an actual investor. skilled or not. So, for newbies who haven’t bought anything yet, how do u find a psychological reason to do things that you are embarrassed about? Here I am trying to get someone to put a sign up somewhere in a college, as if i am a big time investor. But mentally I keep on thinking about the fact that i haven’t bought anything, in other word a “fake”.
book knowledge helps. but not a whole lot in this case. even when you know you have to do it eventually, the fear makes you procrastinate a lot. and it’s really starting to get into the way of my plan of action.
i read an article regarding this by Bill Gatten, it is very good but how do you switch your mental mode to “hard core”. any one’s personal experience with this? any input would be interesting.
