Podcast Archive



Alex invites Obi Dorsey onto the show to discuss how is working out for him. Obi is the Founder and Owner of Freedom REI, and has been in business for the last 3.5 years. Obi currently does about 12-16 deals a month, and has made some excellent connections through the meetup group he started just this year alone. Find out more on how Obi structures and markets the meetup, on this week’s show!

Key Takeaways:

  • Who is Obi and how did he get started in real estate?
  • The more you give, the more you get.
  • Obi started his first meetup group on the website in January.
  • Obi has been hosting a meetup once every month since then. His May meetup had 110 people attending.
  • When Obi started the group, he just wanted to network and meet some people. However, he is deathly afraid of public speaking and it is still something he’s trying to get over.
  • Obi was scared to start the group, which is good, because he knew he was stepping out of his comfort zone and going in the right direction.
  • What results has Obi seen after hosting these 5 meetup groups so far?
  • How do you start your own meetups?
  • Start where you are. You don’t need a big fancy venue to start these events.
  • How did Obi market the meetup? Word of mouth? Email?
  • Obi makes a conscious effort to not make the meetup about him. It’s about meeting cool people who are doing cool things.
  • How does Obi structure the meetups? Is there an agenda?
  • How has Obi built a business where he’s able to consistently do 12-16 deals a month?
  • You’re literally one deal away from changing your life.
