Podcast Archive


Billy Ross has been in real estate since 2003. He first started as a real estate agent, but converted over and became an investor shortly after. Today, he makes 12-15 deals a month with an amazing team who believe in the company purpose and mission. On today’s show, Billy discusses how one bad apple can literally destroy a company, why a positive mindset plays a big part in his philosophy and offers solid direct-marketing advice for new real estate investors!


Key Takeaways:

  • Someone with a negative mindset can really destroy your company culture.
  • How do you influence people in a positive way and get the team to buy into your mission?
  • Billy had bad apples in his team and couldn’t recover. So, for two years, he had to revert back to the basics before he could rebuild.
  • Billy generates about 12-15 deals a month. Where do his marketing dollars go?
  • You’re wasting your dollars if you only hit a list once. You have to go over it multiple times!
  • Billy offers some advice to newbie investors who want to get started with direct-mail marketing.
  • What types of people does Billy look for in his team?
  • As a leader, Billy understands it’s a process. Nobody is perfect. He stumbles every day and gets back up again.
  • Remember, the details matter. Reading a book 30 minutes a day might not be a big deal, but over time it really adds up!
  • What is Billy’s morning routine or mindset routine?
  • There is no such thing as a ‘bad’ morning routine. Work on it and customize it so that it works for you.
  • How does Billy encourage and teach his team about mindset and personal development?
  • You can change your self-image. In fact, you have to if you want to grow and reach the next business level.
  • Practice gratitude every day. You can do three minutes in the morning and two minutes at night. It’s an easy habit to do!
  • Set your environment in a way where you automatically set yourself up for success.
  • Do you ever feel like you’re not doing ‘enough’? Having a vision sets you back on track.
