Is your mindset holding you back? Today our own Shut Up & Do It host, Nick Aalerud shares a few mindset strategies he’s picked up along the way and how he deals with distractions, stays focused and sets the day up for the WIN.
“Shut Up & Do It” is about overcoming challenges both personally and professionally. If you’re familiar with Nick’s story then you know his first 5 real estate deals ended with 4 short sales, 1 foreclosure and $400k in promissory notes and debt.
With no cash or credit and collections calls to his cell every 38 seconds, he stuck his head in the sand for six months. The motto “Shut Up & Do It” finally helped empower him to accept his mistakes, get back into the grind and dig himself out of this hole.
15 years later, Nick has now owned and partnered in over 400 rental units in 4 different states. He’s the founder & CEO of the AA Real Estate Group which consists of 6+ branches including a wholesale & redevelopment firm (AA Real Estate Home Buyers). He’s the co-founder of the premier debt settlement firm in New England working with agents, attorneys, and homeowners (Short Sale Mitigation LLC).
The AA Real Estate Group is also home to an investor-friendly brokerage (AA Premier Properties), an innovative property management firm (Peak Performance Property Management) and offers private lending opportunities & partnerships that far exceed traditional financial markets.
Nick is an accomplished speaker, educator and trainer for investors in the New England area (AA Real Estate Mentor). Even putting his 15 years of knowledge and experience into developing his own wholesale & rehab manual called The Complete Dealflow System with the goal to offer an affordable education & local community to new and scaling investors.
