Welcome to the Flipping Awesome community…the place for awesome stuff for real estate entrepreneurs to know and do!
Before we get into our “manifesto”, we want to make sure you know about the four most important things you can do as part of our community.
- Whitelist our email address. This is a crucial step so that we ([email protected]) can deliver all of the Flipping Awesome! resources possible.
- Fill out our brief survey. The #1 thing we aim to do through the Flipping Awesome! community is to arm real estate investors with tools and resources that are specifically relevant to THEM. Since every one of you are at a different place in life and business, the more we know about you, the more specific resources we can provide you.
- Join our (free) Facebook community. More important than funding, courses, or anything else, is the people you surround yourself with. We have a thriving, highly interactive group of eager real estate professionals in our Facebook group, and it’s an awesome place to throw down a question or provide your own expertise to those who need some assistance.
- Like our Facebook page. Get the latest and greatest info in the real estate investing industry, as well as fun and engaging information on real estate investor lifestyle through our ever-growing Facebook page.
So, you did all four of those, right? If so, welcome to the family! If not, perhaps you need to be inspired about what Flipping Awesome! is, what we dream for it to be, and what we can provide through it in the words below. The following is our manifesto…and we are sure you’ll enjoy it.
WHO ARE WE?
We are brothers, Dan and Joe Kalis. If you want to be a successful real estate entrepreneur, but need a little encouragement, industry perspective, and especially some direction on how to secure and close your first — or next — deal, this page is for you.
Our belief is that building a business around your lifestyle (and expression of the things that are most important to you) is more possible… more fun… and more effective if you think and act more like a true entrepreneur and investor than an employee or a self-employed person, whether your goal is to build a lifestyle business or an empire.
For more about who we are, what we believe, who our community is for, and who it’s NOT for, please watch our short intro video below…
What is a Real Estate Entrepreneur?
A real estate entrepreneur is a dealmaker whose business it is to buy, sell, or broker real estate related assets through strategic marketing, authentic relationships, efficient systems, effective negotiations, and creative solutions. Such a business man or woman has a goal of spending their time working on their business more than in it. They are committed to constant optimization of processes and results. A real estate entrepreneur is a leader of people and a manager of systems.
What is “Flipping?”
In the traditional sense, flipping means rehabbing or wholesaling properties. But we strive to expand that definition to the activity of acquiring an asset in one condition, or from a person in one situation, and transitioning/transforming/upgrading (or flipping). In this context, flipping can and does include buy and hold strategies. It could includes properties, land, contracts, or notes.
Here are a few of the most important foundational concepts and principles for a newer or aspiring real estate entrepreneur…

- The Most Tragic Entrepreneurial Disease
- How To Make $5,000 in 90 Days Or Less
This last link is to a podcast episode not recorded by us, but it provides such a useful and relevant perspective on what you can do if you don’t even have a couple hundred bucks of free cash to invest in education, marketing, earnest money, or even the very basic needs of running a lean real estate business. We know from tons of conversations with members of our community that a lot of you are in this exact situation, and THIS is one of the best solutions to that problem we’ve ever heard.
