House Foreclosures with Gabe DaSilva
Gabe DaSilva, owner of the DaSilva Group, was with us today talking about systems! Because of his experience in finance and the restaurant industry, he quickly learned that businesses need to become highly systematized. Without the proper systems in place, a business can lose money quickly. Gabe is a scientist when it comes to how he runs things and that’s why we loved having him on the show!
“I started in finance. My education background is in finance and real estate finance. After getting let go from my job during the crash of 2008 I decided to do something on my own. I ended up getting into food. I owned and operated a restaurant for 3 years and sold it. After that I had time to think about what I wanted to do next. My father was in real estate and sometimes you don’t realize how much of that you internalize by growing up in and around real estate. I think that was where I was heading I just took a few detours on the way.”
WHAT IS YOUR PROCESS
“We take a systematic approach to business. My dad would take 4 or 5 deals a year, we do 4, 5, or 6 at any given time because we systematized the process. This is something I learned from the restaurant business. If you don’t systematize everything you get bled dry from every imaginable angle. In real estate a 50k wholesale gets you a lot of breathing room. If you don’t have a system where you are bringing in more money then you are sending out, then that’s it, your done.”
HOW CAN PEOPLE BECOME ENTREPRENEURS
“I thought a lot about this recently. After escaping the cube farm myself, I’d like to help 50 people do the same as me in the time it takes me to build my company to 50 million. If you’re unhappy at your job making 50k a month. With technology today you can easily supplement your income by teaching people how to do something you already love doing. At the end of the day, you have to take action. And if you don’t know what action to take there are plenty of teachers out there to show you the way.”
