really? All right, let's jump into your first deal. Because one of the things like they're just so many things that I love about your first deal, Um, one being the way you found it. Because it's something that I say. Hey, go do this. And not everybody does this, right. And then how it took a little while, right? It was It was a roller coaster for sure. It was a Yes. No, it's not gonna happen. Yep. No, it was total on again, Off again. So take us through how you found it and what it was like. How? Let's just talk about how you found it first. Okay. So first I have to speak to your program. Um, you're the way you have things set out is so methodically purposefully planned out. Um, even from releasing the modules one at a time. Thio all the different steps. It's like that for a reason. And I'll tell you why. You know, I'm I'm the kind of person that always kind of questions and bucks the system a little bit to make sure things, you know, But I know better. I need to do it my way. Like saying So, you know, even when I did join, I was like, Okay, she says, do this this and this. But, you know, I'm not gonna do exactly like, but But in the beginning of a in the beginning, I did. And so one of the first things was Thio just put yourself out there on your personal social media, you know, after you've created your business and done all the steps that you tell us to dio, um I just put it out there to my friends and family. I said, Look, this is what I'm doing now. You all know I can't just sit still. I'm always gonna be doing something, and this is what I'm doing. And a friend, an elderly friend, reached out to me through that because she saw that post and she says, Oh, do you do you buy houses? And she said, You know, I'm in a really difficult situation right now, And so I told her, You know, we can, um we can talk later. And so we did, and we met, and we talked. And, um, she told me kind of what was happening. And I told her what was what was happening with me, and we set up a meeting, and, um, I show up to the meeting, and as I'm there, a gentleman's walking out of the house and she says, Oh, he just bought it. And I was like, What? I didn't understand what was happening. Well, come to find out she did not. She felt so burdened by this house. And she loved me so much as my friend through through our church that she didn't want to put the burden of the house onto me. Um, that's so this is interesting to know, like, this is this is really this is how some sellers feel. Yes, she she and she even we had a heart to heart. I said, uh, you know, I wasn't upset that she did it. Choose me. I was just concerned. I was like, You know, why don't you listen? You know, let us meet first. I could have helped you, and, um, I was really concerned that he had had her sign something and didn't give her a copy of it, so she couldn't tell me what she signed. She just knows that he gave her a check and and he left and so may not knowing the process. May not knowing really anything yet. Um, I immediately thought worst case scenario Thought of the typical stereotypical house flipper or not, House slipper. But what, like a wholesaler or something? Doing something like Sharkey, you know? And that was what I was like. This doesn't sound right. This sounds shady. You know, I felt really bad for her anyway. You know, She said I just didn't want to burden you with this house. That was the end of it. You know, that was that I said Okay. It's okay. I understand. You know, um let me know if I could help you. Anyway, if you have questions, maybe I could help you find the answer. I offered to get her an elder advocate if she needed that. I wanted Thio make sure that the contract she signed was on the up and up, and that was that. And we left it at that. And I went along with my modules and learned the program and started implementing all the steps. I put several bids on different houses and got turned down. And so I'm proceeding with my business as as normal and then she contacts me in, I guess March, um and said, Look, you know, I don't know what's happening. The guy can't close. For whatever reason, this was right around the cove, it stuff right before everything started kind of coming down because this was this year. So she reached out to me basically in the same situation she was in. But worse this time, because now she has no seller for I mean, no buyer for her house. She has already moved out and was living somewhere else and could not afford both both where she was living and and the house she left. And so anyway, that's that's how I found it in. That's how. From there, it's it's kind of history. After that, we worked it out, and we structured the deal in a very unique way S O, that she could get what she needs and what she needed. And and then, you know, I could still make it work. Yeah, let's talk about that because it's a way that people don't believe is possible right on by. And I want to note that when I do talk about this, people always say, Well, how do I find those kinds of houses. It's not that you're finding a kind of house. It's a solution. You can offer a seller if it makes sense to both parties, right? So it's not a kind of house. It's a solution that we can offer. Okay, let's talk about it. How did you exactly? And and let me do a side note in one of your podcasts. One of the reasons why I chose to pursue this program was your heart and your reasoning and your reasoning behind what you dio and and my reasoning and heart lined up with that leaving people in places better than the way you found them. And so, um, it was not about money. For me. It was not about the house, really. I mean, it was really about helping my friend genuinely needed help, and I generally had the tools that could help her in some way. That's amazing. And I didn't know really how it was gonna help her, because I still needed some more fax to really analyze. Um, but I knew I was going to help her in some way. You lead with. How can I help her? Right? Always Yeah, which always allows us to come up with solutions, right? Because if we're not, we're all we're in the art. Were this already listening of? They just want the most money possible. That's it. Every seller just wants the most money possible, and that's not the case. And it's not what's best for them in every case, like there are different scenarios and people just need somebody to listen. Really, As we continue along, I think connection and listening are just gonna become more and more important. At least that's what I hope I Even with all these I buyers, right, it's like there's that's just transactional. We're still humans trying to have human experiences, right? So
