How many of you picked up a passive 30% return on investment this year? Not many of you. Our investors did though.
Most of the critics of the Todd Acquisitions model of partnering with a lot of people to accomplish a big goal say that “I don’t make that much money when the profit has be be split so many ways”. This is foolish, you have little understanding of the realities of investing and that limited understanding is going to keep you over there by yourself struggling.
When I first started investing I would invest anything that I could get my hands on, no matter how small. I would throw $100 per paycheck at the market and put it in penny stocks because I thought this was the best move for my limited funds. What I soon learned was that no matter how well you do on a small amount of money you still earn a small amount of money. It takes the same amount of energy to make a prediction on a trade with a million on the line as it does to make the same prediction with $100 but the payout is drastically different. The data is the same, the company earnings are the same, the difference is how much you had to invest in being right. Being right but not making any money is a waste of intellectual energy.
The only difference between making big money investing and small money investing is the level that you choose to play at. So that experience encouraged me to level up so that being right would yield big money not just snapshots for the gram. That experience also encourages me to do the same.
I get so many people asking how to flip $100 or even how to flip $1000 and hearings questions like that is a turn off. Its a turn off because if you only have that small amount of money you have a spending problem and will just flip that money and go back broke. Just like the dude who was trying to do real estate deals for $100 with Grant under the guise that he was poor because of oppression and what not but then you find out he spent a grand last week on a Gucci belt and some shoes. Don’t play the small game. Stack your paper and get used to denying yourself so that when you do make it you don’t go MC Hammer on us and blow it all.
The critics that look at the split on our deals have to understand that that split is the split based on the level that you invest. Meaning that if you come in on a deal and invest $5,000, your ROI is $1500 (which is meaningful). The same person could invest $1,000 and earn $300 (which is significant while less meaningful), but it is the same property and the same partners.
The amount of people you work with doesn’t make a difference. What makes a difference is the level of commitment you are willing to step up to. The sad reality is that most of us put more faith in our jobs than our investments. We go big on our jobs, we push through difficulty on our job, we will sacrifice family for our jobs but we don’t have that same burn the bridges mentality when it comes to our investments. We spend first and invest the crumbs, then complain that our crumbs yield only crumbs. The amount of partners isn’t killing your ROI, your low level of commitment is.
So if you wan’t to win big you have to commit big. If you want to make your returns mean something you need to commit at the level that will make them mean something. I want to let you in on a secret though. When you commit big you don’t need to kill the game on the ROI.
This is why I always push back on the people chasing high ROIs. That is a gamblers mentality. That is a lottery ticket mentality. We aren’t playing the lottery and we aren’t gambling. We are betting big on SURE things. When you bet big on a sure things you can take less risk and earn more money. Our goal needs to be to amass large amounts of wealth and then pick up small points on those funds.
My goal has always been in the accumulation of resources so we can take less risk. ROIs aren’t going to save you, asset accumulation is going to save you and then once you accumulate again don’t spend out of it, live a low cost life even after you accumulate wealth. That is how you keep it and pass it on.
If you are a critic of the model the only thing I can tell you is that 30% is 30%. Its not the split that matters because the ROI is all based on the pro rata basis in which you buy into the deal. The profit is the same if you buy the deal with a group vs buy it by yourself. If we are really being honest, buying with a group provides an extra layer of security that you would’t have if you were investing by yourself and had to pay that $400 plumbing bill or repair that side door with your own money.
We need more groups of us buying properties not less. We need more funds buying large developments and improving the overall community not a few flips here and there. That comes with team work. This is seen in insurance companies, pension funds, and hedge funds, all of which are team work. Yes you can do things on your own but you can also get a great return working with a team if you can shift your think away from the one man show and the self made, strong independent, think that so many of us have been falsely led to believe is noble. Teamwork is more noble than being strong and independent. Bringing others with you is more noble than making it and stunting on your haters.
