Business Mistakes

Business Mistakes

I just wanted to talk in general about business mistakes. For this post, it really
doesn’t matter if you’re in the real estate business, ATM business, online marketing
business, or any other business under the sun.

This post is in general about all business mistakes.

I don’t know what sparked me to write this today, perhaps it’s people that email
me that are interested in starting their own ATM business or interested in investing
in real estate but they are afraid.

Afraid of making business mistakes.

Here’s the deally-o though….you WILL make business mistakes when you get into
business. I get that you want to start a business and not make any mistakes at all…I really do
get that thought process. But I think you’re just putting a little too much pressure on yourself.

Remember back when you first learned to walk? ride a bike? drive a car? had a child? You made
mistakes with all of those things in the beginning, right? (Heck raising a child is probably a
never-ending learning process lol)

But my point is you didn’t start doing anything perfectly. You made mistakes and learned from them.
Well, hopefully you learned from them.

So, just accept that you will make business mistakes when you first get into business, but make sure
you don’t ever make the same mistake twice. I remember when I started my real estate investing business
back in 1999. I made a mistake on every single deal I did for yearssssssss. But guess what? I never
made the same business mistakes twice. I learned from my mistakes.

When I started my ATM business in 2009, guess what? I made business mistakes with that too (and I had
someone “teaching” me the business. lol Unfortunately, he was one of my biggest mistakes!)

I made tons of business mistakes in my online marketing business too. From hiring a worthless coach to
wanting to do everything on my own (and screwing things up and taking longer then necessary to get things

Business mistakes are normal; they will happen. I’m not telling you to get all excited about them and
say “bring on the business mistakes!” But I’m saying just know that they are a normal part of the bigger
picture with your business, embrace them, learn from them and move on.

Generally, to cut down on business mistakes you make it helps to have some type of course, education,
seminar or coach to guide you through your business. Like my ATM Business Blueprint Success System if
you are interested in the ATM business or my friend Susan Lassiter-Lyons Master Lease Option course if
you are interested in creating income with apartment buildings.

Notice I said cut down…..I didn’t say eliminate. That’s because once you learn what to do from the
programs that you enroll in you may start to go off on your own and do your own thing that may not have
been recommended in your course or maybe it’s something more advanced and it’s not in your course, right?

The overall point here is please don’t be afraid of starting your own business because you are afraid
that you’ll make business mistakes. You will make business mistakes, so don’t let that stop you from
pursuing your dreams! Just remember to always learn from those business mistakes and to never, ever
make the same business mistake twice!

Have you made any business mistakes when starting your new business? What were they?

Passive Income Streams are a must

Passive Income Streams are a must

First, I want you to notice that I did say passive income streams…with an s. As in plural. As in not just one passive income stream.

Just wanted to make sure I pointed that out.

Ok so here’s the deal. I’ve spent my entire life growing up and knowing I was different. Knowing that I wanted EVERY DAY to feel like the weekend. That thought led me into the entrepreneurial world of side hustles.

Basically, I kept starting businesses until I found one that worked. In 1999, I realized that real estate investing was going to work.

As I progressed in the real estate world I decided I was more interested in PASSIVE INCOME STREAMS then in active income streams.

You see for me? I wanted to enjoy life NOW. While I was younger, healthier, etc. I didn’t want to have to wait until I was 60, 70, 80 etc. when it was time to retire.

I finally realized that having a j-o-b wasn’t going to get me to where I wanted. Also, working actively in real estate as a flipper, rehabber, wholesaler, etc. wasn’t going to get me there either. Why? Because I always had to be WORKING in order to make money.

I read this quote by T. Harv Eker, author of “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”, and he said “You become financially free when your passive income exceeds your expenses.”

WOW! That was me. My world shifted after I read that. I stopped wholesaling, stopped flipping, stopped it all. Was only interested in passive income streams. Got set into only wanting rental properties (I had 1 single family rental at the time) but wanted to expand into apartment buildings.

Also, I discovered the world of owning ATM machines. (Yes I know saying machines after ATM is redundant, but it just sounds better that way lol)

The passive income streams that I started to acquire in my life really made a difference in my personal time freedom and in my bank account.

I was blown away by the passive income that came from owning ATM machines. The cool thing was they were a lot like real estate investing. So, it was comfortable for me to really get into the ATM business and accumulating passive income from them. I sometimes can be heard calling my ATM machines my “mini” rental properties without the tenants and toilet hassles! hehehe

I’d like to list for you now all of my passive income streams that I have at this point in my life. Keep in mind they don’t all make a lot of money. Most of them just have money trickle in…..but the 1st one on the list is where I make real decent passive income. The next 2 are decent…the remaining……money trickles in, but it still comes in.

Here is the list of my passive income streams:

1) Passive Income from the ATM Business. I own ATM machines. This business accounts for about 90 to 95% of my passive income.

2) Passive Income from Rental Real Estate. I currently own 1 single family residence. I have it sold on a lease/option basis and when it’s officially gone I will probably never own a single family rental again….just apartment buildings.

3) Passive Income from Online Marketing. I suppose I could really break online marketing down into so many categories but for now I’m going to leave this passive income stream as just online marketing. I own websites like this one and Gay Marriage Guide and ATM Business Blueprint, etc. etc.

I also sell my own products online like my ATM Business Blueprint Success System and my Automatic ATM Profits ebook.

4) Passive Income from Affiliate/Referral Partner Marketing. This could have been put in the online marketing category but I figured I’d leave my own personal sites and others stuff separate. So, I get paid for referring other peoples products or for putting google adsense on my websites or for selling amazon products, etc.

Just a note though: I’m not like a lot of affiliate marketers. What I mean by that is I’ll only refer an affiliates product if I have used it personally or have at least seen it and feel comfortable that it will do what it says it will.

Here’s a site that is mine that I’m a referral partner with: BBW for Dating.

5) Passive Income from Network Marketing. I am involved with Starion Energy. The reason I love them so much and feel they are the best energy company for me to work with is because they have something called a Utility Advocate program. This is a program that allows me to help any business owner that I put my ATM in their location (or any business owner in general all across the U.S.) Basically, as a utility advocate, we (they lol) will go over the business owners utility bills for the past 4 years (for FREE); water, sewer, phone, merchant services, electricity, gas, etc. And if any mistakes were made we will cut the business owner a check. Plus, we’ll keep an eye on their utilities for the next 3 years (and cut them a check every month if they are being over charged.) It’s a good deal. Makes me look good whether I put my ATM in a location or not. And it’s passive income.

6) Passive Income from Profit Sharing. I use to be a Realtor with Keller Williams Realty. I brought quite a few folks into the organization and when I left I was vested in their profit sharing program. So, now one of my passive income streams comes from Keller Williams paying me every month. Pretty cool, huh?

7) Passive Income from being a Private Money Lender. I am also a private money lender. Which means that I have money that I lend out for a certain rate for investments that I’m interested in. I generally use my Self-Directed IRA account to do this. I also, get private money for my ATM business from other folks looking for passive income as a private money lender. (Pretty cool, eh?)

8 ) Passive Income from Miscellaneous. I just put this here just in case I missed any lol Sometimes, I lose track of my passive income streams. Now, I don’t spend much time on all of these passive income streams. It’s really just the first 3 that I concentrate on. But the rest…still keeps coming.

Hope this gives you some ideas about passive income streams and let’s you finally realize that you can choose how to spend your time in your life when you own enough passive income streams.

If you’re interested in the ATM business then go here for some free information so you too can add it to your list of passive income streams in your life.

What are some of your favorite passive income streams that you currently have?

Never Work Again – Passive Income Streams

Never Work Again – Passive Income Streams

I want to share my experience that I had at Peak Potentials Never Work Again seminar
this year.

If you’ve never heard of the Never Work Again seminar it’s 4 days of speakers teaching
about different passive income ideas.

For those that are new to the whole passive income concept here is a definition for you:
Passive income is an income received on a regular basis with little to no effort required to
maintain in.

A quick and easy example of passive income is when you go to your local bank and
deposit let’s just say $100. Well you don’t have to ever do anything with that $100
and you will still make money in that account, known as interest.

Well that interest is passive income. Of course, no one is going to become wealthy
off of the insanely low interest rates that banks pay, right?

That’s why it’s essential that you look for different, more lucrative passive income

Never Work Again As An Attendee

In 2009, my partner (now wife) and I attended Never Work Again as attendees. We
had started an ATM business and were making great passive income with it.

But we became addicted to passive income. We wanted more passive income streams.

So, we attended Never Work Again. It was awesome. In 2009, T. Harv Eker was still
the big dog behind Peak Potentials (who put on the seminar.)

Never Work Again As A Speaker

Carey Buck at Never Work Again - Passive Income Streams

It was my great honor and pleasure to be a speaker at Never Work Again on
November 30, 2012.

It was unbelievable to teach folks about my passive income stream that is so
dear to me: The ATM business and owning ATM machines.

The staff was fantastic and so friendly. The attendees…well they were just

The people in the audience (the attendees) is who speakers get up on the
stage for.

When I was an attendee in 2009, I saw all of the speakers on stage who
were making a difference in peoples lives. I can only hope that my
experience on stage as a speaker at Never Work Again in 2012 actually
made a difference in peoples lives as well!

Always remember to create multiple streams of passive income; not multiple streams of debt!

What Steps To Take To Start An ATM Business

What Steps To Take To Start An ATM Business

I get a lot of folks emailing me asking about what steps to take to start an ATM Business. So I wanted to write about that
real briefly. I say briefly because I think that I have plenty of information on how to start an ATM business on this site and
of course on my ATM Business blog.

First Step To Start An ATM Business

Do your research. Seriously, if you want to start an ATM business you need to do a little preliminary research first. Find out what it entails.
How much time is involved? How much money is involved? How much do the machines cost? Of course, I answer tons of those exact questions throughout this blog, my ATM business blog and even on my youtube channel where I post ATM videos tips and Passive Income tips.

Second Step To Start An ATM Business

Start scoping out possible locations. Yep, everywhere you go start really paying attention. Do they have an ATM already? If so, is the ATM actually working? If they don’t have an ATM, would this be a great spot for one? Really start paying attention to all of the businesses that you frequent, your kids frequent and your friends and family members frequent. (Warning: this does become addictive when you actually, officially start an ATM business lol You will be sitting at a red light and then scoping out spots and you’ll even find yourself pulling over once in a while to go into a potential business.)

Third Step To Start An ATM Business

Figure out how you are going to fund your ATM business. Obviously, no magically fairy is just going to suddenly give you money to start an ATM business, right? I mean that would be awesomeee if that was true, but we know it’s not. So how are you planning on funding your ATM business. Do you have cash saved? Do you have friends or family with cash saved? Friends and family with an IRA/401k/Retirement account?
Do you have a line of credit, credit card, etc.? What’s your plan for financially starting an ATM business.

Fourth Step To Start An ATM Business

Educate yourself. I know you did your research and you got a lot of great free info, I’m sure. But you know what they say? You get what you pay for? Start doing research to finding the exact steps you need to take to start and grow a profitable ATM business. Yes, of course, I highly recommend my ATM Business Blueprint course, but you are free to purchase any type of information that you want. I just want you to not have any questions when you start your ATM business. I want you to be able to start an ATM business and be able to follow a plan that tells you exactly what to do. I’ve seen a lot of stuff out there and I know how crappy it is and quite honestly, that’s why I developed my ATM Business Blueprint home study course the way I did. I wanted it to be a comprehensive, home study course that you could take and hit the ground running with your new ATM business. You literally can buy my ATM Business Blueprint home study course and start an ATM business right away and never wonder what to do next. That sure beats spending $25,000 to $50,000+ in franchise fees for them to tell you what to do to start an ATM business, huh?

Fifth Step To Start An ATM Business

Just Do It! Now that you have done your research as far as the ATM business goes and as far as possible locations go and you have also decided to invest in yourself and you bought a quality course to help educate you about the steps to take to start an ATM business well now it’s time to JUST DO IT! (I hope Nike doesn’t mind me swiping that phrase for a moment.) But seriously, just do it. Start your ATM business and get out there and start talking to business owners that you scoped out earlier. The more you talk to, the better you will become and the more you will find your bank account growing with passive income!

I almost forgot something that I wanted to share with you. When you start an ATM business and you get out there and you start doing it…you start taking the steps that you know you are suppose to take to start and grow your new ATM business……I have to warn you, you WILL screw up. Most people screw up when they start a new business. When you start an ATM business that will be no different. You’re still going to screw up, but that’s ok. Just make sure you never make the same mistake twice. We all make mistakes but we gotta learn from them and then move on. Of course, if you have a step-by-step manual, you shouldn’t have as many mistakes as the person who starts an ATM business without a step-by-step manual, but still…you are human. And we as humans, still make mistakes. It’s ok. Just move on and go out there and kick some more butt. Ok?

Now if you’d like a comprehensive, step-by-step, home study course that will help you start an ATM business, please feel free to check out my ATM Business Blueprint course. I’m offering a free ATM Business Cheat Sheet, ATM Business Road Map and a 30 minute video that ‘splains it all when you head over to the website.
