David Richter is an active real estate investor who has been essential in closing over 850 deals which include wholesale, turnkey, brrrr, owner finance, rentals, lease options, and any other exit strategy you can think of. While growing and building a real estate business from 5 deals a month to over 25 deals a month, he realized that as much money was coming in, it was going right out. With the unique opportunity of being in every seat as a real estate investor, he found a calling to the company’s finance seat to help them see where their money was really going. David has helped real estate companies completely turn around from going out of business to building cash reserves through his profit advising company Simple CFO Solutions, LLC. His goal in life is to completely transform the Real Estate Investing industry when it comes to how real estate investors view their finances and – bring them true financial clarity and freedom.
David joins me today to discuss the Profit First method of managing your business, by making sure that you pay your profits first. David breaks down some of the initial steps of Profit First and shows why everyone needs to have a basic budget set up in their business. He explains the psychological aspect of taking money from your business, and how most people feel guilty when they should acknowledge that it is healthy to have a stable pay-out.
"You have to be healthy as a business owner. You have to gain the benefits from the business-your business. You did not start to be a caffeine monster and did not start it to have the expenses go crazy." –David Richter
“If I'm going to be doing the work and I'm going to, you know, put my sweat, blood, and tears are being put into this at the beginning to build this, I need to be taken care of to make sure that when, you know if the wind gets taken out of the sails, but I can be taken care of.” – David Richter
"Some people feel guilty, they feel guilty for taking money out and saying like, ‘Oh no, I shouldn't take money out of my business.’ Right. That's like taboo. Like I need to make sure I use every dollar for, you know, to grow this thing and know, it's like, you need to make sure that you are healthy." – David Richter
"So many people will come into this, this industry trying to obtain freedom and trying to make money only to build a prison.” – David Richter
