Meet Tim Helmick, a full time Real Estate Investor, Author, Coach, Business consultant.
From Hobby to Profession
Back in 2001, while working as a contractor for commercial properties, Tim met Carla DeWitt, a Real Estate Investor and CPA. Tim didn’t know it at the time, but that moment changed his life. Carla was an avid student of a national “Investment Guru”, but to Tim it just sounded like one of those “too good to be true” 2 am infomercials.
It wasn’t long, however, before Tim realized she was successfully buying and selling houses. Now, that statement sounds like it belongs on one of those cheesy “buy my $1000 training program” sites (don’t worry, I’m not trying to make a sale) but it really is true.
Within a few months Carla and Tim were moving forward, working together to create a long term, successful real estate business. He shied away (ran like the wind is more like it) from the seminars, CD’s, books and tapes that Carla studied and consumed. Tim, on the other hand, trusted his experience as a contractor, manager of several business and owner of a few ventures over the years.
Looking at a growing future they made the decision to take the best from both their lives and make one fantastic progression. They both used their professional experience, Carla’s CPA skills, her “guru” training and Tim’s business skills and it made a winning combination. They both realized that the single most important part of their venture was the training and knowledge they gathered from others. The “Guru’s” seminars were a month to month occurrence, books and tapes all around the house, CD’s on every car trip, talking with anyone and everyone in the real estate business. The information they gathered from others made the difference from taking their hobby to a successful business.
As their business developed and began to generate serious income, Real Estate Investing grew from a hobby (some would say an obsession), to a part time income and eventually into a full-fledged business. Over the past several years they slowly built the enterprise into a dependable income source that has enabled them to dedicate more and more of their time to helping others. Tim & Carla wanted to expand their reach beyond their our own community. Eventually they asked ourselves, “How do we take this to the next level?”– and RETalkShow.com was born.
