Transcript:

Speaker 1 (00:00):

What I needed was I needed permission. I needed permission to go be successful to go do that, right? And I knew that I could do it, but even us, a guys type A driven people that can build a business, sell a business, whatever, it’s okay to just get permission from somebody. I needed permission from my coach to say, you are qualified. Go do this. Yeah,

Have Trey Nixon here today talking about Profit First for real estate investing and his business, but also what he’s doing in the real estate space. But I’m excited because I love when people have implemented and can give at least their perspective of what it’s done for their business and give you hope on the other end. So if you’re listening to this wondering what the heck Profit First is about, we’ll go into that. But Trey, thanks for being on the podcast today.

Speaker 1 (01:50):

Oh, David, thank you so much for having me. I’m excited to be here.

Speaker 3 (01:53):

Yeah, well, excited to have you because we know each other through a mutual connection that we both respect and that’s a mentor in both of our lives who also preaches profit first and making sure that we know where the money’s going. But I mean, how did you, let’s go right into it. How did you get into real estate? And I want to know, was there life before profit first or was there life you already had it implemented? I want to know, just go into a little bit of that story for people.

Speaker 1 (02:19):

Yeah, absolutely. My 32nd hero story, David, is I grew up dirt poor, made horrible decisions as a kid, and the judge said I needed some structure in my lifestyle. So I joined the Army right after high school and went around, saw the world, got to go to combat a bunch of times, lived in Hawaii 10 years. We had children in Germany all over the world. I didn’t start really investing in real estate until about 2011. I went full time in 2016 with house flipping because that was what was on HGTV and that’s what my wife wanted to do. And gosh, I fell in love with it, buying houses and renovating them and selling them, really just turning something old to new. And I was actually really good at it. I quickly learned that it’s the most capital intensive business on the planet. I have yet to find anything else that takes as much money and as much capital and as much energy and time as flipping houses.

(03:19):

I mean, you can do really great at it or it can just completely suck all the money out of your business every time you get some money. And so that’s what we realized is what we were chugging along and just throwing money at this thing. And in the background we’re like, wait a minute, we’re making money. We’re supposed to be rich, but it just doesn’t feel like it. And it was just sucking all the money out of us constantly and you really felt like if I don’t put this money back into it, the whole thing’s going to crumble around me. And that’s kind of what led me here to the book.

Speaker 3 (03:52):

Okay. So 2016 you started house flipping from when did you start the house flipping and intensively doing it to when you felt that emotion?

Speaker 1 (04:03):

The first year or two, you’re really on this high, it’s your honeymoon. Everybody and everybody in town’s like, oh, you’re great. Look at your products. Every lawyer I talked to was like, don’t stop. Don’t stop. If you need money, borrow it. And so I had to partner with people with local real estate agents that would say, Hey, I’ll give you all the money to buy it and renovate it and we’ll split the profit. And then I was like, wait a minute. I’m doing all the work and just keeping this little slice. Or if we don’t do great, oh man, that was a lot of work for nothing, but at least my exposure was down. And then we got into buying rental properties and other real estate and businesses. And so that’s when your profit just really starts dwindling away. You get shiny object syndrome when you make a little bit of money and you’re like, I can do this and this and this, and pretty soon you just watch that profit dwindle and dwindle.

(04:55):

But after those two years of really flipping full time is when I just kind of stepped back. We were going into that pandemic, that 21 timeframe when I was like, this sucks. This sucks. I should have just be dripping in cash. And then we got to that, the grass is always greener. I was envious of other people’s businesses, but I didn’t even know that they were completely out of cash too. And it was sucking them too. But I really was looking at let’s say wholesaler businesses saying, oh, I wish I was just doing that because they must have so much money. They’re not trying to buy 30 rentals and apartment complexes and laundromats. And those guys were looking at me going, wow, I have great revenue, but I have no assets. I really wish I was that guy with all the rental property and the apartment complexes. So there’s a real fine line that we had to figure out until we started paying ourself first, and it took years to figure that out.

Speaker 3 (05:53):

So what was the catalyst though? Was it that you were just sick of it and you found a system? I also beforehand you had said, Hey, I read Profit first after I had implemented kind of like the system already, your version of it. So what made you even decide to do something like that? Was it just like you were sick of it at that point? You were like, Hey, something has to change?

Speaker 1 (06:12):

Yeah, I had a really great mentor. His name’s Jim Hadden. He’s one of the best real estate agents in our market. I’m in the Augusta, Georgia market. It’s one of the best media markets in the entire country, especially in 17, 18, 19, 2020. And he’s the one that pulled me aside and said, look, you have to pay yourself first. I know it’s going to hurt when you get that check and you have all those bills and everything to pay, but you have to cut out what you intended to pay yourself. You make a great point in your book that there’s two numbers that every investor needs to know. The first one is what I need to run this business and then what I want, and I just kept whatever I needed came before what I wanted. And so eventually we would just get a check and I would say, you know what? We’re keeping that 10,000 that we said we wanted to, wanted to make 30,000 on this. I know that the next flip needs this whole check today just to finish the flooring and everything, but we have to take what we want first.

Speaker 3 (07:15):

So then you actually did it. It sounds like you implemented and started taking what correct. At that point

Speaker 1 (07:21):

I did, and that’s when everything changed. I started having some, I can sleep at night. Okay, well, we wake up in the morning and everything starts coming your way. You’re kind of like, but we have money. Like, hey, our bills are paid because we paid ourselves first. Now I’m not perfect. So we still, sometimes there’s times where we can’t pay ourselves first. There’s literally, and as investors, we tell ourselves, but if I just take all this profit and put it into the next deal, it’ll be way bigger. When we come out of that deal, guys, there’s always that next deal that needs funding. So if you don’t pay yourself first, it’s going to keep snowballing deal after deal after deal.

Speaker 3 (08:00):

Yeah. So you woke up one day after that mentor and it clicked and you started doing that. So how hard was it to maintain that? Like you said, sometimes even today it’s like, hey, sometimes it’s tough to do that because I think you hit the nail on the head too. You said it’s hard to take that mindset and think like, I’m scared. I’m scared to take money out of my own business and pay myself first. So what helped you to keep that mindset when things got tough?

Speaker 1 (08:29):

Really, it’s my wife. She’s such a stud. She’s still our CFO today. We’ve got bookkeepers and accountants, but no ones or zeros come through any of our businesses without her seeing them, knowing them. I mean, she’s just, A lot of people don’t like to work with their spouses or really say, Hey, you’ve got to hire all that stuff out. But if you love it, it’s something about it. So she’s really the one that says, Hey, we need money. I know you’re a serial entrepreneur and every time we hit a lick, you want to go start a new business or buy a new property. But that’s not the goal of this family. I’m the one that knows, that’s centered, that knows what this family needs, and we need income. So it’s great to be out there and say, I’ve got all this stuff and everything, but really my wife was the catalyst that says, we can’t keep doing this.

(09:19):

You can go get a great job. If you want a great job, go get a great job, Trey. But if you want to be in this for a marathon, not a sprint, we’ve got to make money. We’ve got to make money every day, every week. We have to make money in flipping houses. You’ll go 90, 120 days without a paycheck, guys, without a plan in place for that. You can’t do that for long. We are in a time where you can no longer just live on debt. In 2019, 2020, it was nothing for me to go out and borrow more money whenever we needed it. Those rates are different, times are different, and you just can’t do that nowadays, and that’s not sustainable for a marathon. So she was really the catalyst, and she still is today. I just had lunch with her and she was the one that said, great last week. Now what are you doing this week? I’m really proud of you for last week, but what’s coming in this week? And so she’s the stud.

Speaker 3 (10:15):

Yeah. Well that’s interesting. So where was she during those first few years? Was she not a part of the company yet and didn’t know the inner workings of the, I’m just trying to see the paint the picture before your mentor steps in and says you got to pay yourself. And then it sounds like the picture after is, I love what you said there that she’s like, this is the goal of the family and what we’re doing here. If you go down this road, that’s not the goal. I love that. And the marathon versus sprint mindset, but paint before that. And it sounds like you didn’t have someone in your life doing that for you at that time. Yeah,

Speaker 1 (10:50):

We were employee mindset. We were W2 guys. She’s a graphic artist by trade. I was in the army, so every two weeks we got a paycheck and you got up every day and you did what you were supposed to. So I think it took us a couple years to get from employee mindset to understanding what Rich Dad wanted us to do. So we were poor dad, we were successful, but living paycheck to paycheck, you’re talking about two 20-year-old kids with no kids making 150,000 combined and living paycheck to paycheck. It is what it is. I’m not scared to admit it. And I think that it took us a couple years to go, okay, we’ve got to do something different. Right, because we made a ton more money and we’re acting like employees, not business owners.

Speaker 3 (11:38):

Yeah, that makes sense. So was it then Jimmy Hadden, I think you said, was that the big change there when he said you got to pay yourself first? Or where was the catalyst for starting to think more like business owner than employ and W2 mindset?

Speaker 1 (11:54):

Well, like you say in your book, it’s a struggle. It’s a struggle to go from real estate investor to business owner. And I think it’s a natural fruition that we all go through as investors that come kind of where I came from as employee to weak weekend hobbyists to I’m leaving my job and I’m going to take this on full force. And so yeah, Jim was one of the masters of that and a guy that, not like me, but he gets up at 10 o’clock in the morning, he’s kicking it. He might play golf, he might do this and that, but he’s always okay, and he’s always levelheaded and he’s got his rentals and he’s got his businesses. And just watching him the way he did his life and his business and meeting more and more people that paid themselves first, because you step back and you go, how do I get to that place? How do I get to where you are? I can do it mentally, but there’s something tactical about it that I’m missing, right? And that was really paying myself first. So full honesty, full transparency, I still have struggles with that today. I do because I want every time, let’s say I get some money, I want to go do something else with it. What can we roll this into? And you don’t have to do that guys. Pump the brakes, pay yourself, be strategic, organize and deploy the money or deploy your time and energy strategically.

Speaker 3 (13:19):

So it was seeing people that had actually gone down that road and you saw his life signs. I was like, huh, that’s interesting. Or other people like him that had paid themselves first. That seemed like another catalyst as well too, to having to be like, okay, I want to do that. And you say you still struggle with it today. Now, today, what are you doing? Are you flipping still? Are you wholesaling? I know you’re coaching and helping other people. What all are you doing today in the real estate world?

Speaker 1 (13:47):

Yeah, let’s go down it because it’s not what normal people should be doing. But yes, I’m flipping houses. I’m building new construction rentals. I’ve bought seven apartment complexes in the last year and a half. I own laundromats, Airbnbs vacation rentals, long-term, single family rentals. I own a massive wholesaling business with acquisition managers and disposition managers. I wake up at four 30 and I go to bed about midnight every night. So I’m not telling everybody else to do what I do. I’m just one of those psycho people that you meet occasionally. You’re like, now I know why. Your life is a snowball and everything’s going crazy. And so probably about two and a half years ago, maybe two years ago during the pandemic, a good friend of mine named Paul Rush gave me your book and said, read this. And I thumbed through it. I didn’t read the whole thing.

(14:37):

And actually, I’m just being honest, I didn’t read it again fully until about two or three months ago. I was at my beach house and I spent the whole week reading it. I think I sent you an email and I was like, Hey, wow. And it completely opened my eyes again to some new businesses. You’re right. I just launched a coaching business in the last six months, and it’s income driven, which is one of my first businesses that’s income driven. And I’ll break that down for our audience is like I didn’t have to go in my savings account. I didn’t have to go into gobar and get into debt to start this business. I went out, I made sales, and I used that income from the sales to build the business. And I literally, I pay myself first before I buy anything else before another monthly subscription to Zapier or A CRM, I get paid. And you know what that does that allows my wife AKA, my CFO to go get it, daddy, good job. You didn’t take any of our money to go launch that new business. So I really like it. We’re putting some systems in place for that business that maybe we didn’t implement in our first couple businesses in the beginning.

Speaker 3 (15:45):

You are in all the things. Could I ask you how open and honest you’re willing to be on the podcast? No one will hear this. This is just between you and me. Just kidding. This is where I’m wondering why four 30, why midnight? Is this a deeper why in reason and something you’re building towards? I’m just very curious. I started writing down what all you’re doing, and then you started talking. I’m like, I can’t write it down. And I wrote down all the things,

Speaker 1 (16:12):

Right? Alex Har said, he wants to niche slap me. I dunno if you’ve ever heard of that. Yes,

Speaker 3 (16:17):

Yes.

Speaker 1 (16:18):

And even Tom Kroll, our friend, our mentor, he is like, you’ve got to niche down. You’ve got to niche down. I mean, you’ve niched down to profit first. I’m the kind of person that you can’t tell me how it’s going to feel, right? I’ve got to go feel it, and I always think that I can do more, and I’m working on that. I really am. I’ve seen some things recently that I really want to niche down and get into, but I spent a long time about 14 years in the Army. So getting up early is what I learned is my quiet time for sure. Even if I’m tired, I get up at four 30, and not that I go to the gym every day, but I’ll get up and I’ll read a book. I quietly with a cup of coffee. I get two hours to myself before anyone needs anything from me.

(17:04):

I really live my life and I wake up every day going, how can I be? My family’s number one servant and I would, here’s some free chicken for your audience. It’s like, guys, if you’ve been married, I’ve been married for about 17 years, wake up every morning and say, how can I be the number one servant to my spouse? You don’t have to tell her that. Just go and figure it out. It do it. And so that’s good. I’ve painted myself into a corner of waking my children up every morning at six 30, cooking them a hot breakfast. I drive them to school at seven 30. Awesome. I’m in the office by eight 30. I’m home every single day at four 30 in the afternoon. I cook dinner almost every night of the week, and I’m there to put them to bed every night. And that’s most important to me. That’s my why. Awesome. And I’m telling you, if you think you’re out there and you’re crushing it at a job and you think you to create a business where you’re never going to be home and you’ve got to work 70 hours a week away from your family, you’re wrong. You can focus on what you want and do what you want to do to grow outside of those hours. But my why is so that dad can be there whenever I need to.

Speaker 3 (18:04):

Yeah, no, I love that. No, that’s great. I’m glad that your family isn’t a part of that. I’ve had some times where you ask people and they’re just like, it’s the go. I want to work now so I don’t have to work again. It’s like, I’m glad you’re also building the life that you like today and that your kids see you during the day as well too, which is very profit first mentality. It’s putting in first things first, and you’re doing it in your own life now. That’s good. That’s good stuff. And I do, I agree that quiet time is very important in the morning, having those couple hours where you can just think.

Speaker 1 (18:36):

Yeah, and I’ll add to that. People hear that. They go, oh, four 30, I got up at four 30 this morning. I didn’t get up at four 30 Friday morning. So I get burnout. I’m 42 years old. But guys, we’re not getting up and digging ditches. We’re not getting up and breaking up concrete from big rocks to little rocks. But the mental part can get you just as well. So give yourself the time. This is what I tell people, stay at home moms. You have a harder job than anybody that I know, but if your kids wake up at six 30 and you wake up at six 30, that’s not how to start your job. Get up a little bit earlier and be ready for ’em. We would never walk into a bank job that you have to be there at nine. We would never wake up at 8 42 and throw in our clothes and just walk into our job.

(19:21):

We would have to backtrack a little bit. So give yourself some time. Give yourself some grace no matter what your job is and prepare yourself. So it’s not like I’m up early doing pushups and yelling. I look forward to it. I wake up and I look at the clock and I, I could go back to sleep for two hours, or I could get up and have my coffee and in the living room with the lamp on and no one’s here, and I can look at my social media and I could do my emails and I can make my power list and everything that I want to do that I know will make me successful because I’ve implemented already before, previously. It’s exciting.

Speaker 3 (19:54):

Yeah. Well, I love it. You’ve got a lot of drive there. You’re still going. Yeah, that’s good stuff. You’re in all the things. Okay. You said also you might want to niche into some things. Is it things you’re currently doing or is it new things that you aren’t doing?

Speaker 1 (20:10):

Yeah, what I realized is I’ve got the real estate thing. We’ve got it. We’re doing large syndications. I’m looking, my next acquisitions a $15 million apartment complex that we’re going to close on sometime in the second half of this year. We got that. What I didn’t realize was helping other people fill my cup up so much, David. I mean, I was antico, right? I was like, I don’t need a coach. I’m not paying for a coach. I can learn everything on YouTube and I’m smarter and I’m stronger and I can work faster. And then I humbled myself and I paid for a coach. I said, you know what? Let me just try it. And I changed my life. I have added hundreds of thousands of dollars of revenue in areas that I never thought I could just by hiring a coach and someone that’s better at it than me.

(20:56):

And so that passion right now is coaching, is helping other people learn how to start or scale a real estate business. And that’s not niched down. Starting a real estate business is the big open wide aperture. But ultimately, I’m just getting filled up by it and I love it. And I don’t know what the niche is going to be. I’ll tell you, I haven’t told anybody else on any podcast, but I really love exit strategies. I love the philosophical thought through process of exit strategies, meaning we have so many people that are getting into wholesaling, right? Lead generation, wholesaling is so hot right now, but they paint themselves into a box. If it’s not a three, two brick on a slab, 1100 square feet, I don’t want to even want to hear it or see about it when we really need to look at our exit strategies and say, Hey, is this a wholesale? How do we wholesale this? Is this an assignment a double close? Do we joint venture jv? Is this a good candidate for a burr? So I’ve got a top 10 exit strategies that I love to go down with my students and my clients, and it’s just I watch their eyes open up and then within weeks they go, Hey, this is a great one for this exit strategy. So when I think about my niche all the way down there, it’s really about getting people exit strategies down where they are, if that makes sense.

Speaker 3 (22:13):

Yeah, no, I like that a lot. You’re helping people niche into their own niche, it sounds like. What makes sense for them? And the thought process of what do I do with this property once I get it in the door and what’s best for me, my situation or profitability or whatever it is that they have. I like that a lot. Yeah. Well, you’ve done all the things. So now it’s like if you do all the things and you have the different exit strategies, you can also help in that way too. You’re not just saying words. You’re actually saying, this is what I’ve done. This is where I’ve gone. And being able to be a better coach to those people and a mentor as well too. I do how you said that you had to humble yourself to pay for a coach. I think that is so key because so many people are out there.

(23:01):

I could just YouTube all the things you were saying. It was just so good. I could do all this, but I needed a coach as well. And I say that I resonate a hundred percent with that. I needed to make sure I had good mentors in my life. We share, like I said, we share a mentor. We have Tom Kroll in our life and other people in our lives as well too, that just help us on that path. So I think there’s really, if you’re wanting to build a real business, you have to have people that have been there that can help you navigate those waters as well too.

Speaker 1 (23:31):

I would say that what I needed was I needed permission. I needed permission to go be successful to go do that, and I knew that I could do it. But even us, a guys type A driven people that can build a business, sell a business, whatever, it’s okay to just get permission from somebody. I needed permission from my coach to say, you are qualified. Go do this.

Speaker 3 (23:57):

Yeah, yeah. It’s all out there, right? All the people that you see posting about, oh, they just got started and now they’re just coaching. And sometimes we need validation from those people in our life like, Hey, is this time, is it time to go out there and do this? If you’re been in real estate, we have ups and downs that you’re part of it still today. You’ve got the ups and downs of real estate. It’s like, am I qualified to do this and to teach people? And I love how you said that sometimes you just need someone who’s good, who’s a guy that helps you make those decisions and be able to say, you know what? Yeah, go out there. Help people. You’ve got something to bring to others as well too. Now, this has been great. I love this because I love the journey.

(24:36):

It sounds like you got into real estate, had the W2 mindset, then really walked that path and started to feel the pinch and then had good mentors in your life pointing you to like, no, this is a better way to man some money on the backend. Then you’ve also got who else here? You got everything changed when you were able to pay yourself first, then your wife helped you. So it’s like having the help from home. That’s huge too. We could probably spend a whole episode just on the spouse relationship as being an entrepreneur, especially if they work with you as well too.

Speaker 1 (25:09):

A hundred percent. And I will say that one of the things that new investors or new business owners don’t realize is the importance of systems, systems and processes. You have a quote in your book, it’s a Dan Kennedy quote, but it’s something like All wealth is created through systems or processes or something like that. I love Dan Kennedy, and you put that quote right at the beginning of what chapter in your book, and I circled it in the book, and I remember being like, what are my systems? What are my systems? And guys, we don’t even know that we have systems because we haven’t written them down. We haven’t formalized them, we haven’t taken, and it’s not some super secret process where you’ve got to go buy yourself away from your family and lock yourself in a room and figure this out. Some gurus might tell you, man, it’s literally just writing them down. Take a binder and a notebook and just start writing down what you do during the day and work and create ’em from that. But as soon as I started putting those systems in processes, not just on paper, but into practice and it takes discipline, that’s when I started being able to pay myself first or profit first in real estate investing.

Speaker 3 (26:19):

Yeah, sounds like you had that system for your cash, so it helped you a lot there. Man, this has been great. So let’s see. Jim helped you a lot. Tom has helped you a lot. You got your wife helping you a lot. It’s like so many people right in our lives that have helped us along the way.

Speaker 1 (26:34):

And David Richter, man, you took the time to write this book and teach people, man, and I’m grateful for that. And thank you very, very much for that. And if you’re listening to this and you haven’t read his book, it’s a simple, easy read. Grab it on Amazon today. It’ll absolutely change your mindset if you’re struggling right now with your cash monster.

Speaker 3 (26:54):

Yeah, I appreciate that. You’ve probably quoted the most to me of my own, but this is good stuff. I appreciate that a lot that you didn’t just read it, but you took notes and came prepared as well. So Trey, how do people get ahold of you if they want to get more of Trey in their life, whether it be for coaching or whether it be, I don’t know, just connecting with you or whatever you want to do.

Speaker 1 (27:13):

Yeah, yeah. We got all kinds of crazy content out there right now. You can on any social media channel, you can find me at Trey Nixon official or at Fearless Flipping is our community. We’ve started an amazing free community that’s centered on real estate investing. So if you’re interested in launching or scaling a real estate investment business, this is a free community there doesn’t cost anything to join. There’s hours of courses on there. There’s free weekly coaching calls with myself on there. Every Tuesday night after dinner before the kids go to bed, you can jump on and talk about real estate with me. We have a couple hundred members in there, but like I said, it’s absolutely free. So if you’re looking for another resource in your life, find me on school. School is a new platform. It’s S-K-O-O-L, and I’m fearless flipping, so you’ll find me on there and I look forward to seeing you.

Speaker 3 (28:03):

Cool. So you can find ’em on the school platform. I love school. School is such a great way to disseminate information, and I love that you’ve set up that free platform to get people started off there. So go to school and then you would just type in the search, fearless flipping, and then you can follow him on his socials. Trey, this has been awesome. And if you were just like Trey and you were feeling like making money, but where the heck is it all going and all that stuff, you can head over to simple cfo.com. We could get you started at least with a financial leader to give you and speak business owner and just tell you where’s your money’s going and how can we set a profit first in your business and really making sure you know where your money’s at, because that’s really the power, the magic of not only making it, but keeping it as well too. So simple cfo.com, thank you for being a great listener and making sure that you as a business owner make profit a habit in your business. And then, Trey, thank you again for all the wisdom that you shared on this episode today.
