The biggest hurdle new investors face is getting the money for deals, but the real hurdle isn’t financial—it’s mental. How can we shift our mindset and remove our blinders so we can see where the money is? How do we find and approach investors to show them the value of the opportunity? Is there a way to accelerate our success?
On this episode, I’m joined by successful investor and entrepreneur, Matt Aitchison, to talk about how he built his empire and share the mental blocks he had to overcome in order to get those first deals off the ground.

The best safety net and accelerator you can give yourself to getting the results you want is to potentially partner with someone. -Matt Aitchison
Three Things We Learned from Matt Aitchison
The value of an experienced partner
Because of greed, many new investors choose to avoid getting a mentor, coach or more experienced partner. They try to figure things out on their own so they can make all the money. But getting a partner will actually shorten the learning curve and make you more money in the long run.
Why the deal comes first and the money follows
When people are first starting out, money is the biggest mountain because they think they need the money before they can get the deal, but you actually need the deal before you can get the money so you have something to present to someone and show the value of. If you show the value and ROI of the deal, it will sell itself.
The importance of building systems around what you’re doing
If you’re a solo entrepreneur and you don’t want to wear all the hats ask yourself, “what did I do today that I don’t want to do tomorrow that is not documented?” This will help you build systems and have a process so that when someone comes in they can produce the same results.
In order to attack the gap between where you are and where you want to be, you have to do things differently. The most important thing in investing is shifting your mindset around success and the activities that make it possible. Don’t think of the deal as an investor doing you a favor. You’re actually helping them make a return bigger than they would get in anything else. It’s not about asking for money. It’s about the right delivery in how you educate them and offer the opportunity. When you deliver on the return you promised and build that reputation over time, you’ll never lack great opportunities.
