Every week we interview world leaders in different categories and in this episode we are talking about one of my favorites… cannabis.  We are going to talk about what’s beyond the mainstream.  Mainstream knows a lot about cannabis not only from a use standpoint but also from a financial standpoint. Cannabis is going to become one of the greatest asset classes many countries have ever seen.  

Joseph is joining me in this conversation.  He has been in the industry since he was a teenager.  He is currently leading a huge project in Hawthorne, Nevada.  

In this episode, we talk about the different types of cannabis including the classifications.  We also taught about the medicinal value and numerous medicinal benefits without side effects.  Joseph shares a ton of information that will be beneficial if you are considering adding this as one of your asset classes.  

Show Notes:

  • [01:04] Cannabis is going to become one of the greatest asset classes many countries have ever seen.  
  • [01:49] Since you can’t learn about cannabis in college Joseph attributes his success to his great mentors.  
  • [03:16] Joseph got to where he is today by having great mentors, working with great people, and taking the leap to work for himself.  
  • [04:21] In 2009, he moved to Colorado to grow cannabis with his wife.  He wanted to create his own wealth.  
  • [05:01] Once he learned about the huge medicinal benefits and the relief people received, his perspective switched and his business became all about helping people.  
  • [06:47] The mainstream is not really talking about the medicinal value of cannabis including the ability to use cannabis daily without the side effects.  
  • [07:40] There are over 450 compounds in these plants and they are still constantly learning more.     
  • [09:21] Everything is a hybrid. There are many different varieties.

  • [14:38] Tricrops have fiber, grain, and CBD. 
  • [15:36] The seeds have many uses including food and feed for animals. 
  • [15:52] In World War II we needed rope and people were subsidized to grow hemp for the government so we could go to war.  Then it just vanished.  They changed the law and made it illegal.  
  • [17:41] Cannabis relieves cravings and helps with addiction and withdrawals.  
  • [18:20] Cannabis can replace that desire and addiction and you are functional.  
  • [19:22] Joseph shares how cannabis has helped in his life with addictions and injuries.  
  • [21:38] There is a ton of misinformation about cannabis.  
  • [23:09] He shares about the impact on seizures even in children. Research in Israel is backing this up.

This is another special COVID-19 marketplace awareness broadcast. We are the place to keep you up to date on what is going on in the market. Specifically for entrepreneurs who need to make money in this ever-changing time, come here with any questions you have and we will have or find the answers.  We will continue to bring you amazing experts that share their expertise and perspective on what is going on in the market today.  Today I am joined by Fuquan Bilal.  Fuquan is the founder and CEO of NNG.

Fuquan Bilal founded NNG in 2012 with the principal mission of capitalizing on the growing supply of mortgage notes in the interbank marketplace. Mr. Bilal utilizes his 20 years of residential and commercial real estate success to identify real estate opportunities and capitalize on them. To date, he has successfully managed three private mortgage note funds that primarily invest in single-family performing and non-performing mortgage notes. His financial acumen and proprietary set of investment criteria enable him to purchase under-performing real estate assets at a deep discount of face and market values, thereby increasing the value of the assets. This, coupled with his ability to maximize the use of leverage, enables him to build strong, secured portfolios with solid passive income flows. Fuquan effectively hedges investors' risk by spreading their investment across a portfolio of alternative assets that diversify and stabilize the fund's return and valuation.

In this episode, we talk about many different opportunities for making money in the current real estate market.  Fuquan shares about the trends and changes he is seeing in the real estate market. He also shares his out of the box ways to invest in real estate in the current market.  

Show Notes:

  • [01:13] Fuquan Bilal is the founder and CEO of NNG.
  • [03:12] He took a leap of faith and left his corporate job and got into the house hunting business. 
  • [04:20] He realized the power of real estate. One thing that really resonated with him early on was the power to go back into his community and revitalize communities by fixing up properties.
  • [06:14] He went through a time of struggle because he didn’t have a good foundation. He had multiple streams of income but no cash flow.  When the market crashed, he started to restructure.  
  • [07:43] The real estate investments he has are local where he has developed relationships already. 
  • [09:12] Diversified hybrid real estate investing is having different asset classes in the same fund. He has his capital secured by different types of assets.  
  • [10:32] Once COVID hit the landscape of everything changed.  
  • [11:49] The real estate market is on fire right now.
  • [13:29] He has noticed more New Yorkers moving to other areas and commuting in for work.  
  • [14:38] Many new investors are pivoting to buy a lot and doing new construction since there are not many available properties.  
  • [15:46] Manhattan will likely take a decline but will stand strong.
  • [18:08] If you are participating in some of the programs they have for landlords now you definitely want to read up on the details.  You only want to use the money if you need it. 
  • [19:47] Unfortunately many businesses didn’t make it to the other side. 
  • [21:32] Grab Fuquan’s book, Passion for Real Estate Investment. 
  • [23:02] The note business is the best investment strategy in the universe.  
  • [23:37] Check out the coming Virtual Meetup and Marketplace. It is the teach you to fish model that you will never starve again once you learn our techniques.

This is our special COVID-19 market awareness broadcast. We have been broadcasting since the beginning of this new journey and the new world we are living in.  We have been talking about becoming an entrepreneur and what to do with your real estate and money.   Unfortunately, it is not going to get any easier.  Going back is not going back to the way we know it.  So much has changed.  It is a great time to reset your life and figure out who you want to become.  Raymond Aaron is joining me on the show today.  

Raymond Aaron has committed his life to teaching you how to dramatically improve your life. Raymond transforms your life and income by helping you tap into your own potential. He has traveled the world delivering over 5,000 speeches in 5 continents for over 1/3 of a century teaching his unique methods to brand, doubling your income, and creating wealth. He is the author of 138 books, including Branding Small Business For Dummies, Double Your Income Doing What You Love and the New York Times best-seller Chicken Soup for the Parents Soul and the Canadian best-seller, Chicken Soup for the Canadian Soul. 

In this episode, we talk about many different opportunities for making money in the current market.  We share what we are seeing with real estate. We spend most of the episode talking about the importance of branding and how writing a book can enhance your brand.

Show Notes:

  • [01:42] It is a great time to reset your life and figure out who you want to become. 
  • [03:12] Raymond shares about his journey.

  • [06:56] They pivoted to online events, but they also had a back-up plan. They joined a network marketing plan as their back-up plan.  
  • [07:24] If you are in network marketing right now, you are earning more money than you have ever earned in your life because now people have been buying only online for the last four months.  
  • [09:25] Raymond predicts that retail real estate is going down and won’t recover because people have learned to buy online.  Office real estate is going down because owners are thriving without an office. 
  • [11:09] He recommends getting into the courier business.

  • [14:01] Every category is open to making money right now.  There is so much to buy right now.

  • [18:19] More entrepreneurs can be born out of this time and more wealth will be transferred for those who are paying attention. 
  • [20:59] Whatever you want to start you must be branded first otherwise you are drowning in the sea of sameness.  
  • [21:13] When you are branded by writing a book the world stops and salutes you.
  • [22:29] Writing a book is the easiest way to brand yourself. You don’t make the money by selling the book.  You make the money when the book sells you.  
  • [25:26] The brand determines how much money you earn not your abilities. 
  • [27:26] It is easier to become a #1 best seller on Amazon then the New York Times.

  • [34:54] Loral talks about how she misses flying to some of her favorite places in the world. 
  • [36:42] There is a problem when people haven’t walked the walk, but they think they can talk the talk.  You need to walk the path before. 
  • [37:35] Loral’s favorite insight was “that the world has been punched in the face.” 
  • [37:56] You need to land on the right side of this rebalancing of the economy.  You need to be understanding of how to find these deals and what to look for. 
  • [39:29] Right now is a perfect time to be a solution provider and help businesses with what they need.  
  • [43:41] Check out the Virtual Meet Up and Marketplace and the Graduate Marketplace.
