fail. How many times do you see people do one thing very well for a short amount of time, then boom! The market changes and they are out of business? They didn’t adjust with the market,” he said. Another challenge in the industry is trouble with labor and contractors. Greg said most people run their business in a way that makes them dependent on the contractor. He does it differently. “I’ve worked with hundreds of con - tractors but can count on one finger a guy in 22 years that had the systems and processes in place to run an effective contracting business for the long term and that I would trust without following up. The way I think of hiring labor is like McDonald’s where teenager workers come and go. Have your systems in place and revolve the contractors in and out. Set it up like a role to fill the void so you are not dependent upon the contractor.” A LEGACY OF LEARNING Within Greg’s education system, he is offering an introductory level, an advanced level, and a program devoted to property management. His program on how to self-manage your rental prop- erties is already active and other edu - cational programs are coming soon. All can be found at He is offering online programs for entry-level investors in a step-by-step format for those who are getting into the industry for the first time.
