Mario Rapaj has been in our mentoring program for nine months now, but he hasn’t closed his first deal.

And he’s frustrated.

So, what’s holding Mario back?

Is he doing the right activities? Does he have any limiting beliefs? What can he do to get unstuck and finally become a GP?

Mario is Founder of Tex-Alb Real Estate Investment Group, a syndication business headquartered in Dallas, Texas. He has an LP portfolio of 375 multifamily units and owns several single-family properties.

Mario is driven to improve the quality of life in the communities where he invests and help passive investors build generational wealth.

On this Business Boost coaching session, Mario shares his challenges in finding deals that fit his criteria and getting investors to commit in the current market.

I ask Mario what he’s doing to raise capital, offering advice around how to get more investor leads and connect with partners who specialize in raising money.

Listen in for insight on finding a mentor to support your investing journey and learn how to stay the course and take consistent daily action to achieve financial freedom with real estate!
