Investor, entrepreneur, and author skilled in alternative investing such as real estate, stocks, private and peer to peer lending, cannabis, and equity crowdfunded startups.
Curious about alternative investing? I structure alternative portfolios in peer to peer lending, cannabis, crowdfunded startups, private income funds, equity traded debt, and more.
I've raised $30 million in private capital and closed more than 600 real estate transactions. I've syndicated multifamily investments and private equity mortgage pools. If you're looking to scale your real estate investing business, I'm ready to answer your questions.
If you are flipping real estate, an S corp may be better than an LLC. Flipping income can easily be categorized by the IRS as “earned income” and thus subject to self employment tax through an LLC, particularly if it is single member. An S corp will shield part your income from this tax.
Always speak with an accountant to review the tax issues before choosing an entity to form, because most attorneys are not tax savvy.
I shared three days with Susan at the Denver GTM seminar-Sept, 013 and can confidently say that the material, content and wisdom given by Susan to the entire group was the clearest, most complete and concise of any RE related seminar we have attended. The information provided by Susan was helpful, factual, inspirational and much needed to our entire group from Seattle. In my 25+ yrs in the CRE business, I find Susan to be most genuine, empathetic, careing, and possessing the highest of integrity. We all learned a great deal and I recommend her to anyone with the desire to further their RE success.
I first hooked up with Susan when I purchased the Private Money Blueprint program. As I studied and implemented the program I could tell right away that Susan was one of those RARE Real Estate coaches that really cares about her clients, and has really done what she is recommending!
Since that time both Kristi and I have attended her "Getting The Money" bootcamp, along with many of her webinars that are JAM PACKED with AWESOME tips and strategies that helped us say GOODBYE to hard money lenders, and now we have a "waiting list" of Private Money investors who are happy with a return of 5-8%!
Over the years I have also really enjoyed her e-mail updates that are fun and packed with real world, up to date information on how to continue to get Real Estate deals done, even in this tricky market!
I highly recommend doing business with Susan, she is a great asset to have on your Real Estate Dream Team!
Sincerely, Rob & Kristi Russell

I've had the pleasure to not only learn from Susan's teachings on real estate financing and creative investing strategies, but also to profit from them. In fact, I'm completing a deal today that is going to provide years of passive income for my business because of one strategy that I learned at the 2011 Getting the Money Live event.
As a business partner and friend of Susan's, I can also vouch for her sincerity and integrity. She consistently over delivers on every training and coaching program that she puts into the marketplace and truly cares about the success of her students. I recommend her programs enthusiastically to any aspiring or experienced real estate investor. You won't be disappointed and if you actually implement what you learn, it will make a major difference in your bank account and more importantly in your life.
Susan knows how to find the areas I most needed improvement and found creative ways to quickly make profound changes.
She has a great passion for what she does and that, in itself, is a real motivational source.
She adds nice surprises with her motivational gifts and "outside the box" goal setting. But, that's all attributed to her gifted listening skills.
Been a pleasure and regained confidence booster for my business as well as my personal life.
Susan is absolutely one of the most professional leaders I have ever had the opportunity to work for. She mentored me during a critical time of my career... She always provided me sound, fair, and consistent feedback that enabled me to develop my leadership skills. I will always consider her a mentor and only hope that I get the opportunity to work closely with her again...
Susan is a dedicated and focused coach with a broad knowledge of real estate investing including advanced strategies. Her teachings have immensly broadened my understanding of both real estate investing and marketing. Time and again I have been looking for information on a subject only to be led back to her trainings and webinars. If you are looking for information or coaching on just about any Real Estate strategy, Susan likely has a program you should know about.
Susan is at the top of the game when it comes to understanding financing RE transactions. Susan conducted a few classes for us to teach our members how to get the best rates and terms for financing by understanding their own deals better and teaching them what lenders are looking for to qualify their deals.
I would highly recommend Susan's class and ebook. All of our students rated her as 'Above Expectations' or 'Outstanding' in their reviews.
