Jasmine and her brother have been rocking with us since we launched Trailer Cash Academy. The first time we caught up with Jasmine they had just earned $6000 in 30 days since joining us. So, they quit wholesaling regular homes and went all-in on mobile homes.
They eventually decided to invest in our special accelerator program and have had more success. At the time of our interview with them they had just earned $27000 in revenue in one week flipping mobile homes, walking away with $17000 in profit. And no repairs were needed.
So in this blog post we wanted you guys to catch up with her once again and get an update on how she’s feeling since joining the accelerator program.
The success they’ve had is building their confidence
Since we last spoke Jasmine and her brother have completed 4 deals. We love being able to watch their journey so closely and see the progress they’ve made. Being able to secure this most recent deal has given them a huge boost of confidence about their decision to get into mobile home investing.
We asked her about how she’s feeling at that moment, about the progress they’ve made and what it feels like going to a regular job after that.
“It’s been an incredible journey. Like, honestly, nothing that we would have ever expected. You guys have been incredible. Always there online, ready to go, answering good questions for us and yeah we’ve been out here grinding and you guys been there every step of the way”
“It’s mind blowing, honestly. I would have never expected to be able to do that in one week. Like, you see it happen to other people and then it happens to you. You’re just like, wow, this really does work. And I would have never expected mobile homes would be able to give us this opportunity.
It’s funny. I was actually leaving here when I picked up the keys the other day, and as I was leaving out of the park I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m in a mobile home park, flipping mobile homes and made $27,000 in a week. This is unheard of. It’s crazy.’”
“I almost put my two weeks in! It really does feel good to know that I’m working really hard all day, most of the day, and then coming home and like getting a little bit of sleep, but it’s all worth it.
Being able to close $27,000 in a week, it shows you how working for yourself and believing in yourself can really pay off.
And it’s not even just about the money part. It’s just seeing what opportunities are out there to get your time back you know? I think that’s the biggest thing for me is knowing that I can use my time, the way I want to use it rather than being at a 9 to 5.”
She walked us through the deal and we got a look at
Jasmine took us through the home that they had just secured. The seller was on a fixed income and her roommate actually moved out of the home so she couldn’t afford it anymore. She ended up deciding to sell it as quickly as possible. That’s when Jasmine and her brother came in and tried to help as much as they could.
They helped the lady in multiple ways including selling her furniture and offering emotional support through the process.
“I came over some days and just hung out with her and sat on the porch. We talked for hours just hanging out, so it was really cool. She was cool about it. The entire situation. So it was a win-win on both.”
“We picked it up for $7,000 and we’re looking to put in maybe $4,500 to $5,000. We’re just doing it high, just to be as safe as possible on the rehab. And then at the end, probably selling it for $49000.“
“It feels good. It still hasn’t sunk in yet. Not gonna lie, it still has not sunk in yet. I think once I have the check in hand then I’ll be like, ‘Oooh, daaang we did it!’ But no, it feels really good, especially because I’m able to help somebody, know what I mean? They really needed help and she was super grateful.”
The home needs a little bit of work done before it’s ready to be put on the market. They need to clean the carpets, paint the inside a little and freshen up the smell of the home. The park requires them to remove some big rocks on the outside as well as painting the exterior of the home and a power wash on the driveway.
How investing in the accelerator program boosted their performance
We’re always looking to make sure that we’re serving and adding real value to everyone we transact with. It’s no different with our accelerator program. That’s why we were eager to get some feedback from Jasmine on what the program has given her in terms of growth.
“It has boosted it tremendously. Like we would get leads in here and there. But just getting into the program skyrocketed it within 30 days – deals, phone call to phone call leads, going on important appointments etc.
And it’s just getting to the point, I’m just like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t even have enough time to do this. But it’s okay’. It really kicked into overdrive.
And like you guys said, you say it and until you actually do it is when you’ll believe it. And getting into the accelerator program has definitely been a booster.”
It’s true because we’ve noticed Jasmine and her brother are always out in the field somewhere whenever we do our weekly mastermind calls, either doing something with a title or something with a seller.
She says keeping her balance is the biggest thing for her right now. And trying to make sure they’re organized with their time and making sure things are in order. Because at first things got a little wild and overwhelming with all the appointments, scheduling difficulties and life situations, all of that.
Jasmine says next year her main goal is to quit her job and go full-time into mobile home investing.
Mindset over everything
Jasmine finds security in having a brother as a teammate who knows when to pump her up or calm her down. She also recognizes that her main strength is her strong sense of direction.
“I think the thing that’s gotten me to this point is just having a vision in mind, being able to see it and just knowing that I’m going to continue to push on it.
Kind of like how you guys do. I mean I don’t know if I’m relentless and like attacking it from all sides, but I think just knowing that I’m going to get to that point. You know what I mean? It’s what kind of keeps me driving. Just being like consistent and knowing that I’m doing the best that I can is kinda my superpower.”
“I would say staying consistent and like closing deals consistently; that’s the biggest fear that we have right now.
‘Cause right now, like it’s been really cool this week. You know what I mean? This past couple of weeks. But then it’s, man, is it going to continue though? Just that ‘What if’ type fear you know?
So, I think that’s what we’re working on right now. Staying together and just like knowing that it’s going to come in.”
“That’s the biggest thing. It’s just staying consistent and knowing that you’re going to get over this hump. It’s just a matter of time, like it’s constantly changing. Everything always changes. So it’s just riding those waves.”
Even with a team, emotional support, and recognizing your own strengths the mind is always looking for things to fear. That’s just how we survive. And as entrepreneurs this feeling is just part of the journey. It’s normal and we’ve felt it too.
Anytime you attempt to reach that next level you’re going to have to deal with new challenges and new fears.
It’s about adapting to those changes and realizing that in order to have more, you have to become more. Becoming more involves changing your expectation of yourself. That’s how you’ll eventually turn into a better version of yourself.
So, with all of this comes new stresses and pressures. And we’d say you just need to get used to this feeling. But as you get more systems and processes in place, continue to network, and expand your network with other people that can bring you value, while you do the same, you will be alright.
