Building Confidence & Attracting Private Money

Guest: Mike & Lee-Anne Nicholson, Real Estate Investors

Mike & Lee-Anne are real estate investors located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. They have also recently ventured to Detroit, Michigan. They chose Investor Mel & Dave’s mentorship program to learn how to use other people’s money (OPM) to scale up. They strongly believe in listening twice as much as you speak. Let others speak and you’ll hear some interesting things! They also practiced how to sell the idea of private lending. Get ready to ask! Ask for private money – offer the opportunity to work with you – ask for more mortgages – learn how to present your file differently.
