Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 10.27.46 PMWelcome to the 192nd episode of The Solopreneur Hour. This one is extra special for real estate agents, flippers, and investors…this is your show.

Listen in to hear how I unveil a technique for crushing your Facebook page, Instagram, and taking your business to the next level by selling neighborhoods, not houses. We also chat about what we can learn from Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

But don’t worry Solopreneurs…I haven’t forgotten about you! I also talk about looking outside your own industry for inspiration, then I read a really touching email I received this week, and answer a question about gratitude.  Forgive all the coughing and sniffles! Thanks to all of you, please enjoy episode 192 of The Solopreneur Hour.

Jace Jacobs
Wazzzuppp Michael? It’s my BDay today and I’m relaxing. What do like to do on your birthday?

Kevin-Sara Griesser
Hey Michael. Long-time listener, first-time asker. I work as a real estate broker and investor in the Louisville, KY area, and I suffer from what I would call shiny object syndrome. I seem to always be looking for the next big thing.

As a result, I have purchased several guru programs, but I have a hard time sticking with any one thing for extended periods of time.

I also have a neglected website at, a Facebook Business Page, a twitter account, a LinkedIn account, a YouTube account, and an Instagram account that either don’t get used much or really other than FB for personal use, don’t get used at all. I never could get into blogging, Cliff Ravenscraft is a personal friend, but have never jumped into the world of podcast creation. I listen to and subscribe to numerous podcasts.

I have MailChimp, but no subscribers (nothing for them to subscribe to). I want to build and develop my real estate business, but I am not sure where to even start. Sorry for the long set up….here are my questions:

What are the best ways to start developing or curating content in order to draw and build an audience? And what are the ESSENTIAL tools to get started? THANKS!

Robert Bone
Hi Michael! Do you know if the GoDaddy codes work outside the US? I’m in the UK (queue your dodgy English accent…) If the codes won’t work, is there a way that SoloHour still gets the credit for the business? Thanks me old chap. Apples and pears and all that.

Josh Dawson
As a fellow real estate pro, I’d like to hear what you have to say about Kevin’s post!

Chris Diaz
I second Josh and Kevin..

Mike Kiefer
Do you have any opinions being registering as a nonprofit organization. Should someone do it our not? Pros vs cons?

Wade Sarver
Michael, I would like to thank you for all the help you have given me over the past year.

Jessica Shaanan
What is the one single thing you are most thankful for in your life right now?

Jonathan Wilson
Michael, I love listening to the interviews. If I were doing interviews I think a finishing question might be about what they read. I would ask, “what three websites do you visit on a regular basis and why?” So I ask you, what three sites do you regularly visit and why? Keep up the great work!
