If you think making a whopping $50,000 from just a single TTP (Talk to People) call is not possible, you have to listen to today’s episode! The amazing wholesaling story of today’s young rockstar rhino is proof that when it comes to wholesaling, the sky’s definitely the limit!
Cedric Vinson is a phenomenal 24-year-old from Lenexa, Kansas. While he has a successful career working for a billion dollar company, he knew working for others is not something he’d like to do for good.
After discovering real estate, there was no looking back for him. Even if he started just like most people—totally clueless as to what he’s doing—that didn’t stop him from going out there and making things happen.
Fortunately, his hard work and courage to fail his way forward has been rewarded massively—he just joined the TTP $50,000 Club, earning an epic $58,000 from one TTP call!

Brent Daniels: [Woo oo 00:01:18] Rhino tribe! Welcome back to the Wholesaling Inc. Podcast, the number one podcast when it comes to wholesaling real estate. Now, let’s remember when we are talking about wholesaling real estate. We’re talking about sourcing opportunities. If you are new to wholesaling, if you’re wondering what wholesaling real estate is, if you’ve been in the real estate industry for a long time and you’re still confused about what wholesaling is, it is very simple. Wholesaling is just the sourcing of opportunities and you have three ways to do that.
You can get referrals for it, where you’re, essentially, just waiting for people to send you referrals, because you’re the guy, you’re the gal that gets these deals done. That’s the one way. Number two way is that you market for these opportunities, through direct marketing, through direct mail or PaperClick or bandit signs, or something like that. Something that is a true marketing channel. Or, number three, you go out and you prospect for it. And, that is either done in two ways, typically. That is from door knocking or my favorite approach, the TTP method, the Talk To People where you pick up the phone and you phone prospect these people.
Now in my TTP program, I have been pushing one main goal for 2019 and that is for everybody in my program to do a $50,000 deal, as quickly as possible. Join the TTP $50,000 Club. I’ve been pushing it because there is something that changes in your mind, your literal brain chemistry changes, when you get a check that is that big. Because it’s not big enough to where you’re like, “Oh yeah, I’m retiring,” like it keeps you… It keeps feeding that beast inside you, that hunger, that hustle muscle, that you’ve got inside you. But, it’s big enough to the point where you’ve never gotten a check like this and you’re like, “Holy cow, I did this from one phone call.” And that changes everything in your business, everything in your mind.
So with that said, I want to read out, I have an unbelievable guest out of Kansas. He’s from Kansas, he does business in Missouri. Let me read to you the posts that he put on Facebook today, because I think it’s going to hit home and really, really let you know about this unbelievably unique young man. “When I set out,” this is him, “When I set out and started my house buying company, I told myself I’d be able to leave my job before 2019 and I did. It took eight months. You miss every goal you don’t set. I set another goal to have massive success my first quarter working my business full time. Another goal accomplished. I had another goal, which was to be interviewed by the top national real estate and investor podcast in the country that only bamm…,” B-A-M-M go ahead and Google that, “bamm business owners make it on. Another goal accomplished. Small victories turn into big wins, but if you never start setting goals and following through with execution, you won’t get enough-
Cedric Vinson: [inaudible 00:04:26].
Brent Daniels: …enough to start building momentum. So without further ado, I’d like to introduce the author of this post, Mr. Cedric Vinson! Cedric, say hello to everybody.
Cedric Vinson: Hey, how’s everybody doing? Cedric Vinson, 24 years old. I’m in Lenexa, Kansas.
Brent Daniels: That’s right.
Cedric Vinson: Excited to be on the show. I appreciate you for having me, Brent. All the Wholesaling Inc. I appreciate everything you guys do. Let’s hit it!
Brent Daniels: Let’s hit it! So let’s start with the first part of this. You said that you had a goal to leave your job. What was the job that you were doing before you started your real estate business in 2018?
Cedric Vinson: Yeah. I was working inside sales as a business advisor for a software company and marketing company. I would literally call out to contractors, preferably contractors for me, all throughout the country and I would sell them lead generating programs, websites, search engine optimization, phone book ads, everything marketing.
Brent Daniels: And was this… You were working out of an office, you were working at a home?
Cedric Vinson: Big office, hundreds of people. Multi…The company is a couple billion dollars and we were the main workforce as to bringing on new business. I was good at it as well, I just didn’t want to do that forever.
Brent Daniels: Right. But this sounds like a big business. I mean, this sounds like you probably, if you really put your mind to it, could have stayed in that business, been really, really successful, moved up the ladder in a billion dollar business and lead a happy life. So what are you doing out here being an entrepreneur?
Cedric Vinson: Man, that’s what I’m meant to be! I can’t take it. I was only in the workforce for three years, and the whole time I was trying to figure out what I was going to do to get out. I started a painting company, multi-network marketing companies, I thought I wanted to be a contractor. There is a ton of things. I even thought I kind of wanted to go back to school a little bit, but that didn’t take long.
Brent Daniels: Sure.
Cedric Vinson: Not at all.
Brent Daniels: Sure. Got it. And so then you found real estate. Where’d you find it on YouTube? Was it somebody that you know, was it a referral? Was it a podcast? What brought you into this crazy world?
Cedric Vinson: Yeah. I was very non-skeptical, because of the way that I was introduced to it. My cousin, mid-thirties lives down in Atlanta, Georgia. He introduced me, my family to it, and really put us on game as to what videos to watch, how he was doing it. I kind of just started talking to him and took it from there. I believe I watched my first video last April, and two weeks from then I was calling the house, cold calling it. I’m meeting a owner. Didn’t know what I was doing, and I was trying to negotiate. I didn’t know anything, but I was out there trying to make something happen.
Brent Daniels: Right.
Cedric Vinson: I still have that contact.
Brent Daniels: You just got a phone number and you took action. How did you know to even, what, who to go after and how to get the phone number and how to even do so? How did you know to get started?
Cedric Vinson: I think I just watched some videos. They talked about bandit signs, they talked about vacant houses, Driving for Dollars driving. So I started doing it, but I didn’t have the system laid in place, so he was real inconvenient. I’m working in sales, I’ve got a nice system set up. I just didn’t necessarily like it. I didn’t look further enough into videos to start seeing about a dialer system, targeted list, just more effective ways to get data in and do deals. I only did that for about a week and I just kept putting a bandit signs for eight months.
Brent Daniels: Eight months! And how did that go?
Cedric Vinson: Man, I got calls from and I still get calls. I just didn’t get any deals.
Brent Daniels: Right.
Cedric Vinson: You see, I spent good money. I had websites, I was going out at night. I was really trying to make this thing happen. Taking off from work, just doing everything. I thought it was going to pop for me and it just wasn’t popping.
Brent Daniels: So wait, you have a full time job in sales, and then you get done with your job, and your out putting bandit signs, and you’re out taking calls and, you’re out trying to negotiate deals. You’re doing all this stuff. I mean, that’s crazy, right? Why wouldn’t you just take the job, and then afterwards relax and chill out? Weren’t you exhausted? Are you just full of energy?
Cedric Vinson: I’m 24 years old, Brent! I’m a young man! I don’t have any kids. I don’t have a wife. I’m a single bachelor. I figured this is the time for me to be up all night. To wake up early, go to bed late. Not go to sleep at all some nights. Be out late. I figure this is the time in my… I don’t have to do it for 10 years. I just had to for a period of time until I can get the business to where, like you guys talk about, you automate and scale.
Brent Daniels: Yep. That’s it. That’s it. And I think that is a beautiful part that you touch on because really building the foundation of your business based off of your experience, based off of your hard work, based off of you putting together the systems. Now, you can follow a path and a plan and it’s laid out there, whether it’s Wholesaling Inc., whether it’s TTP, whatever it is. But, when it comes to learning how to be a real leader, learning how to understand what your people are going through… How do you know that if you haven’t been through it? But you’re going through it now, which I think is phenomenal, right?
Cedric Vinson: Yeah, yeah, absolutely. And we’re, we’re hitting it.
Brent Daniels: Yeah. So, let’s talk about what happened. How did you get your first deal, and walk us through that? And then we’re going to talk about when you decided to just do it, and just hit it out of the park and, and join the 50k club. So let’s talk about your first deal.
Cedric Vinson: Okay, so I’m going to preface that first deal, which was a 12,000 $1400 assignment check, to a check I made three months into the business, which was for 2100 but it, it wasn’t all by myself.
Brent Daniels: Okay.
Cedric Vinson: It was a [crosstalk 00:10:18] deal with a wholesaler out of Texas… 18 year old kid was calling off of Craigslist, helped him negotiate the deal, I got it under contract, sent it out to my buyers list. Within 24 hours I had a buyer, but I didn’t get another deal until this last… It would have been January. And I put… gosh man, Brent, I’m frustrated. I’m anywhere I can go. I started to look at videos again, wherever. And that’s where I stumbled on to Wholesaling Inc. I started listening to… I just started following the steps. Get a list, put it in the Mojo Dialer, go to Batchskiptracing.com, coupon code TTP to get it at a discount, put it in your Mojo Dialer and then call it.
I even had the TTP script off of some of the podcasts. It wasn’t the real script, but it was enough. I’ve made thousands and thousands, if not hundreds… I’ve made a lot of calls to strangers all over the country, so it’s nothing. I don’t need a script.
Brent Daniels: Yeah.
Cedric Vinson: So I literally, I take off work one day, would have been a Tuesday or a Wednesday. I spend all day putting in a probate list. That next day, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I said, I’m taking off work again, because I had… it’s the end of the year. I told myself I was going to leave by the end of 2019, and I’m nowhere close enough. That second day, after cold calling for two hours, I get a guy on the phone, he says, “Yes,” he’d consider an offer. I asked him how much, he only wants 24 grand for the property.
I don’t know, but I’m like, okay, let’s go out. I meet him at the house a few more hours later, and in that timeframe I get an ARV put together. The house, I’d say it was about 75 to 80k ARV, only needed about 15k repairs. So the max offer would have been around 37. So I knew I had a deal there. Ended up getting it under contract at 21. I offered him, I believe, 18 for it and we fell in the middle at 21. I sent it out to my buyers list, and once again I got some hits on it. About a month later… Two, three weeks later, I don’t know how long it was, I had a 12 grand check.
Brent Daniels: [Woo! 00:12:35] I love it! I love it! And I’m going to save this bell for the big one. Okay because we’re going to get into that, but some really, really important things. And I want you to peel back a little bit of the story here. So what was the list that you called on to get this?
Cedric Vinson: So this one was a probate list-
Brent Daniels: Probate.
Cedric Vinson: For Jackson County, Missouri.
Brent Daniels: [crosstalk 00:12:58] Go ahead.
Cedric Vinson: I was going to say, I got that list. I went up to the courthouse one of those days and figured out the code violations, probates, kind of some pre-foreclosures, and the probate was just the one that I went with.
Brent Daniels: So what do you mean you figured it out? You went up there, you asked him for it and they gave it to you?
Cedric Vinson: No. I asked around. I went through multiple steps. Where I got the list… it’s not even with the county, it’s like a newspaper or something.
Brent Daniels: Yup.
Cedric Vinson: I don’t know.
Brent Daniels: Yup.
Cedric Vinson: So,
Brent Daniels: But-
Cedric Vinson: Yeah.
Brent Daniels: But you got it, you filtered it and you got the numbers. Great. So here’s the moral to that story, guys. Don’t stop! Find some way to get that list. There is a way to get these lists, especially probate. Here’s the deal. The statistics show that 75% of probate property sell within the first 90 days of new ownership. That’s just facts! That’s data! People that inherit these properties don’t keep them. You would be surprised how many people are not real estate investors, and have no interest in wanting to keep rentals, or fix things up, or flip them, or do whatever. The people want to sell these properties. So definitely go after those probates. Now, the second thing that you talked about is, you sent it out to your cash buyer database. How did you start from zero cash buyers to having cash buyers? What did you do to build your cash buyer database?
Cedric Vinson: Yeah, so when I really got things started, I would say last June, I got a couple of websites. So I had a buyer’s website, and a seller site with Carrot, and I just started putting them both on Craigslist and one of them worked.
Brent Daniels: So you’re saying InvestorCarrot? Well, now it’s Carrot.com. It’s a real estate, specific for wholesalers, website service.
Cedric Vinson: So I just plug and play. I’ve been drawing buyers off of Craigslist every single day since-
Brent Daniels: What do you post?
Cedric Vinson: I just post… Sometimes it’ll be a ghost ad, it may be a property I have, a property I already wholesaled. Now, it’s usually one I used to have. And I just put a description of it, it’s generally a property that looks good. And then, I’ll let them know, if you would like to be added to our buyers list, go to my website.
Brent Daniels: Now do you put pictures or is it just text?
Cedric Vinson: I’ll put a link to like a Dropbox. If they want to see pictures, they have to go to the website-
Brent Daniels: Right.
Cedric Vinson: and [inaudible 00:15:26] the information.
Brent Daniels: Got it, got it. Awesome, so that’s how you’ve been building up cash buyers. So now you’ve got their email, and you’ve got their name, you send it out to them and somebody is like, “Hey.” Did they call you up? Did they respond by email? Do you remember?
Cedric Vinson: Yeah. So I had, I had a lot of people calling me. I had quite a few people emailing me. And, the guy that ended up actually getting it, was somebody that had called me off of one of my bandit signs. He was a younger investor and he ended up, man, he paid more for the house. Everybody else wanted it for like 30 31 and this guy was… He took it for 35.
Brent Daniels: Awesome, awesome. So and in that, that’s a really important thing, because not only are you talking to people all the time, but you need to be adding them to your cash buyer database. You never know, even if somebody has a bunch of properties, or they sold properties, or they don’t want to sell their properties, they might want to buy, right? They might want to buy a smoking deal in an area that makes sense to them. So absolutely do what Cedric is talking about and get those, add them to your cash buyer database, for sure.
Let’s talk about that. Let’s talk about the big daddy! Let’s talk about a big deal. Let’s talk about what we commonly refer to as a massive deal! Where we go and we change our whole financial future, and we get a deal, we make a call, we have a conversation, and it makes $50,000 or more! Let’s talk about that, because I introduced this, I hyped this thing up. I’m like, “This changes your life!” Let’s talk about that. Let’s see if this is true. So tell us about your experience with what I’m saying.
Cedric Vinson: Man, just still thinking about it, it’s really incredible! Like, that happened. It’s been a couple of weeks now, but it’s absolutely incredible. I’ll say your confidence and personal belief in yourself, in the business industry… Any doubt you may have they’re just… And I don’t doubt myself, but I didn’t personally think my next deal was going to be…
Brent Daniels: [crosstalk 00:17:24].
Cedric Vinson: …and it turned out being 58 and some change.
Brent Daniels: [crosstalk 00:17:28] Talk us through.
Cedric Vinson: Yeah. So, I actually first made contact with this guy, probably that first week when I left my job, which is crazy. I asked the first time I talked to this guy. And, the house I initially talked to him about, he ended up having other investors out to see it, had real estate agents out, and it really was just going dead. I asked him if he had anything else, and we had already built up rapport. We had been talking once a month for two or three months now, and nobody else called him. That’s the thing. Each of my probate deals, they were never called by anybody else, only mailers.
Brent Daniels: Yup.
Cedric Vinson: So I called him, we were just me and… His name was Mike. We’re real friendly. A lot of rapport was built. That’s something I like to really pride myself on doing. I really want them to trust me. Like we’re buddies, I’m going to make this happen.
Well, he told me about a few other properties that he had inherited that weren’t on any of the documents, anywhere. And one happened to be a fourplex in Parkville, Missouri, which is… I mean, I didn’t even know where Parkville was. It’s up North. And it needed work, but he didn’t know how much he wanted for it. He didn’t know if he really wanted to sell it or not. I really stayed persistent on him. He ended up finding out a number, had a contractor go by and told him that it could be 40 to 80k to fix it up. And he was only looking for… When I first asked him, he didn’t know. I called him again the next week, he wanted 100 to, I think he said, 100 to 150 for it. I’m thinking this is a wide gap. I’m going to get this deal for $100,000.
Brent Daniels: Yeah!
Cedric Vinson: I mean that’s the way I see, if he wants 100, it’s a deal. That’s a win-win for him! I had no clue how much this fourplex would cost. How much it would be worth? I just knew that if I could get it for 100 it could be, I could at least make a couple grand off of it. Well, he gets more of a precise number at 115 to 140, and I’m like, okay… Let’s see the house. It’s time. But, before meeting him at the property, I actually met him down the street and I had a questionnaire of some questions that I sat down, and we just talked. I wanted to get to know him a little bit more and really understand the situation better. And that questionnaire, I feel, really got me over the hump because he was really liking it. He was reading it before… I wasn’t even asking the questions.
Brent Daniels: Yeah.
Cedric Vinson: He was just answering them. So it really brought us a lot closer, as to me understanding his situation, and what he was really looking to accomplish from the deal. What he really wanted for it.
Then we went to the property and it was cool. We just walked in. It was really nice too… I wish I would have had the money to keep it myself. The guy that got it, just minimal, just cosmetic. And he’s going to be renting this bad boy out. We walked the property, it looked great. He wanted 115 and I knew it was a deal there. I didn’t know how big, so I’m not going to try to offer him 100. I offered him 110, just to not give him what he asked.
Brent Daniels: Right.
Cedric Vinson: With all the rapport built, He said, “What the hell Cedric, let’s do it!”
Brent Daniels: So you went from 150… I think it’s really important, even if they say 115 you go, “Well, is that the best you could do?”, “Could you do 110?”, because remember the psychology of a seller. If you’re selling your car on Craigslist, or out there, wherever, and you put it out for 10 grand. Somebody calls you instantly, and gives you 10 grand, and they’re on their way there, you’re like, “Oh…” What’s your first thought? Your first thought is, “Oh, I sold it too cheap. It was too cheap. It got sold too fast.” Right? So you’re, you’re always thinking. So if you go, “Will you take less?” “No.” “Okay.” That works.
So he goes 115, you lock it up and, then what happens? You send it out to your buyers?
Cedric Vinson: Nah. So I locked it up at 110.
Brent Daniels: 110! You did? Oh awesome!
Cedric Vinson: Yeah, at 110 I can offer him what he… I can accept what he offered. Yeah! I love negotiation. I couldn’t wait for that. It was… I had all my lines ready. 110 locked it up, I got pictures, video… And, also I did take a contractor out to this one. A contractor had called me off of my bandit signs. So he called me looking for business. I don’t usually use a contractor, but I wanted to make sure that my repairs were in the ballpark, so I got a professional estimate put together. The estimate was good. And then yes, I sent it out to my list. This one came off of a Craigslist buyer, as well. There was a lot of traffic. I gave everybody two hours to come for the inspection walkthrough. Four guys showed up and one of them, he got the deal. He was, he was serious. He was an out-of-state guy. He offered about $10,000 more than everybody else, so I had to go with him.
Brent Daniels: [crosstalk 00:22:19] So did you, now with this deal, did you assign this deal or did you close it, and then sell it? Like what’d you do?
Cedric Vinson: It was a double close. So there was a few steps and all throughout this process, I generally… if I had some questions, I might reach out. But if I don’t have an answer in five minutes, I’m just going to figure it out. So I found out how to contracts for the double close to make it legal in Missouri. I figured out a title company that does double closing, which I hadn’t found at this point in time. Yeah, I did all that.
Brent Daniels: Awesome.
Cedric Vinson: Yeah. It worked.
Brent Daniels: And just first for everybody listening there that might not know. Sometimes, when you have really big spreads, what you want to do is close it yourself and then have the buyer close it, as well. You could do this with a double escrow or a double close. Now, with a double escrow that, essentially, means that you use the funds from the end buyer to pay your side of the transaction. You’ve got to see, which title companies in your area do those and are familiar with those, but essentially, what that does is it protects the… it doesn’t let the end buyer know how much you are making. Sometimes people get freaked out that you got such a good deal.
Now, if you’re working with buyers that you work with a lot, they don’t. But, if you just want to avoid any kind of friction, any kind of discomfort or whatever coming from the buyer, or them trying to beat you up later, then you just do double close or a double escrow. It doesn’t show them what you make and… Boom somebody got a $58,000 check, right? Is that how much it was? What was the total?
Cedric Vinson: It was 58,700. And the title company actually told me that is the biggest deal that they have done. Wait [crosstalk 00:24:05] before you get the bell. Let me get the bell for my Snapchat. Okay. Okay. [crosstalk 00:24:09] I’m ready. 50 grand!
Brent Daniels: One, two, three.
Cedric Vinson: I’ve been waiting for that one, man!
Brent Daniels: 58,000 and some change. I’m telling you part of the 50k TTP Club. When did you join TTP?
Cedric Vinson: I joined TTP on January 16th or 17th.
Brent Daniels: Right. When did that deal close?
Cedric Vinson: This deal closed March [crosstalk 00:24:38] 25th or the 27th
Brent Daniels: Yeah. I think it’s behind you, on the wall, behind you. Now we just got to get.
Cedric Vinson: [crosstalk 00:24:45] Yeah. Yep, yep. The 27th You’re right. The 27th.
Brent Daniels: I love it. Hey, if you guys are watching this on the YouTube channel, which I hope you are, Brent Daniels real estate, just put that into YouTube. Behind him, he’s got all of these really, really great either affirmations, or tracking, or just looking at the different focuses that he has on different lists. It’s really, really, really incredible! My office is covered… I mean, you can see behind me I’ve got stuff everywhere! I think it’s just important to be surrounded by these things. You know what I mean? It’s exciting when you go into a room, a space, and all of a sudden, the rest of the world is the rest of the world. And, I’m in a productive space where I can just go and just talk to people and really make an impact. So I really love that, man! That’s awesome!
So from one call, you pulled out this $58,000 deal, and it wasn’t even for a deal that you were going for. You asked the all important question, which is part of the script. When they say “No,” or they say they, “Might not want to do it”… Do you have any other properties you would consider selling? Boom. Asking that second part, the second question is what got you that deal, which is just absolutely incredible. Now, don’t you feel like the sky’s the limit? Like you could just keep going and going and going and building, doing bigger and bigger deals?
Cedric Vinson: Yeah. Here’s the thing, Brent, in all I did in sales and entrepreneurship, I’ve always had a larger order size. Like when I worked in sales, if you could sell a $60 program or $3,000 program, I’m going to sell more $3,000 programs than $60 programs. Because honestly, I feel that the amount of work effort that it took between this deal and even the deal of 2200 or 14 grand was the same.
Brent Daniels: Yep. It’s just mindset. It just mindset. So how do you develop that mindset for everybody out there? That’s wondering how did you develop that?
Cedric Vinson: And he just got a, he’s got instill in yourself, man, I’ve been a, I’ve been a baller my whole life, whether it was sports… whatever. You just got to have that confidence about yourself. Even if you don’t, just tell yourself you do. Just say, I am that guy. I am that woman. I am this, I am that. And eventually you’re going to be it. Like I behind me… I am the best closer. I love cold calls.
Brent Daniels: I love it.
Cedric Vinson: There would be days I didn’t feel like cold calling, I looked up and it’s like, well, I’m the best. They should be afraid that I’m calling them because I’m going to talk…They’re going to sell me a house they didn’t plan on selling.
Brent Daniels: Yeah, it is, and we talk about it in this podcast. Is that identity part of yourself, that winner part of yourself, that pilot light that you have inside you that says, “I’m going to win. I’m going to win. I don’t care how many times I have to fail here, here, here, and here. I don’t care how many times I’ve got to get rejected, I’m going to win.” It’s inevitable, so I might as well win big! Right?
Cedric Vinson: Exactly. On that note, there’s something I need to say because I feel that it’s not mentioned a lot. My first… I actually got two houses under contract after like three weeks of watching videos and hanging some signs, and they didn’t sell.
Brent Daniels: Yep, and why didn’t they sell?
Cedric Vinson: Well, I did it wrong. I got them at a price too high.
Brent Daniels: Price.
Cedric Vinson: Too high.
Brent Daniels: It’s price.
Cedric Vinson: You know,
Brent Daniels: it’s 100% yeah,
Cedric Vinson: yeah.
Brent Daniels: It’s 100% price. 100% of the time. That’s the hardest part. The hardest part is this a deal or no deal, but you know what? How much did you learn from those ones? How much did you learn how to comp properties right, to understand values, understand opportunities?
Cedric Vinson: If I hadn’t got those deals, I wouldn’t have been able to… It would’ve been a rough start.
Brent Daniels: Yep, 100%.
Cedric Vinson: That’s what I learned how to comp properties with, matter of fact, is those deals that didn’t go through.
Brent Daniels: 100%! You’ve got to get into this business. You got to fail forward. You got to. I mean that sounds like such a cliche thing, but there are so many deals. I’m telling you, there are so many deals that I started out with, that I thought were smoking deals, and nobody wanted them. And you learn and you learn and you learn, learn. And then, you’re like, “There’s no way you could get a deal for 110,000 and sell it for 168,000! There’s no way… or 170,000, there’s no way!” And then you do it, and you’re like, “Oh my God, what else is possible?” You know what I mean? That’s why the 50k club and TTP is so… I’m pushing everybody towards that because I want everybody to feel that. Even if you’re listening to this podcast. Cedric was doing deals off of this podcast, listening to this, going through the steps. Just unbelievable!
Let everybody know, as we wrap this up, how they can… Here’s what’s going to happen, okay? People are going to find your name, they’re going to find you and you know what they’re going to ask for? They’re going to ask for that questionnaire that you brought to that appointment, right? So get ready for that. Right? That questionnaire you brought-
Cedric Vinson: Oh, the questionnaire! And, that’s fine. I’m telling you.
Brent Daniels: Yeah. People are going to reach out to you. How do they reach out to you, so you can provide some value to this audience?
Cedric Vinson: Yeah, the best place to reach me, I’m most active on Facebook. That’s Cedric Vinson, C-E-D-R-I-C. V as in Victor, I-N-S-O-N. You can find me on Instagram at, bound, underscore, the number four, greatness. That’s my Instagram. Had that back in high school. I didn’t know… I knew I wasn’t bound for greatness in football, even though I was a really good football player. That’s not what I wanted to do. That wasn’t my dream, so I just kept that handle and it’s like this is what it was.
Brent Daniels: Love it! Love it! Absolutely love it! Thank you so much for getting on here. You’re a young man at 24. You’ve already had your brain fricken reprogrammed with a 50k plus deal.
