Where Do You See Yourself in 5 Years? - Answer For Job Interview

Where Do You See Yourself in 5 Years? - Answer For Job Interview
Job Interview

I am going to show you exactly how to answer the "Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?" interview question in a way that gets you closer to landing the job offer without putting off the interviewer.

Here's a hint.
the answer doesn't involve you saying that you want to be a manager or director in the next 5 years.
If you struggle with this interview question then pay attention, because I have a secret formula that I think works across any job title and any industry.

Now before we answer this question, we need to understand why the employer is asking us this in the first place.
  • Reason #1: They want to make sure you actually want to be there in the long-term. If you give any hints that you plan to be elsewhere, and not work at this company from now into the future, then they will consider that as a red flag and wouldn't consider you further in the process.
If you actually truly plan to one day run a business in the next 5 years, maybe a good idea to NOT mention that as part of your answer.
  • Reason #2: They want to weed out the ones who want this job and THIS job only. Versus the ones that just want to 'foot in the door' or are already thinking about the next job title.
  • You want to ensure that your answer speaks to this job and only to what this job has to offer. Sometimes companies don't know if they will have a higher level role for you to go into in the next 2, 3, 5, years.

So if you make it sound like it's your expectation to be promoted into a Manager title. Manager role or Director role in the next X number of years, then they will likely just err on the side of caution and not consider you further, because they may not be able to provide you what you want.

Or they will see you as overly ambitious and using this opportunity as a stepping stone to get to the next level. 

Okay, so now we understand why this question is asked, I will now give you my magic formula for how this question should be answered.

There are 2 parts to this answer, and in this example, I have used an accounting type of example. But you will understand the structure as we go along.

Part 1 of the answer is:

  • In the first 2-3 years. I see myself becoming be a true expert and master at my role as a (job title) at (company name) I plan to really immerse myself in the position. Understand areas that can be improved on. Really got to know the ins and outs of the business and look for great opportunities to make the finance-team and department as efficient.

Part 2 of the answer is:

  • For the 2-3 years after that. I see myself as being a key finance business partner and liaison to all the other teams in the organization. I really want to be able to extend my expertise and then offer help to other departments. Whether it be sales, marketing or operations using my skills and knowledge gained from my role.

The reason why this formula works so well is that firstly, 
  •  #1: You are keeping it general, you are not talking about specific titles you want to achieve, which may put off some interviewers. And instead, you're talking about "what you will do" instead of "who you will be" in the next 5 years.

#2: You show that you are eager and that you truly want this job. That you are focused on this role and this role only. That you simply want to help and give value.

If you have been saying anything other than this, then you need to use my formula, "where do you see yourself 5 years from now?" interview question, then feel free to use, and let me know how it goes.

Tell Me About Yourself - Best Answer to This Interview Question

Tell Me About Yourself - Best Answer to This Interview Question
Tell Me About Yourself - Best Answer to This Interview Question

In this article, I'm going to teach you the best 3 tips in order to answer the common question "Tell me about yourself" interview question the right way, so that you can stand out in front of any hiring managers and ideally, land in more and more job offers.

Before we get started, there're a couple of ground rules you need to know before you can develop the perfect answer to this common question.

Rule #1: Do Not Talk About Your Personal or Family Life.

When someone asks you, "tell me about yourself," they're not asking you to tell them about your personal life choices, and the mistake that you've learned from, and how you got here as a human being.

They're not actually asking you to "tell them about yourself" they're actually asking you to tell them about your experiences, your qualifications, and why you're a good fit for that role. That's it.
They really want to know about your professional background and your experience.

Rule #2: Do Tell a Story.

You should not be telling them about your LIFE story, you do want to tell them your professional work story. I'll get into details about this a little later, but essentially, a good professional work story means that it needs to be engaging, compelling, clear and complete.

Now that we've got the rules out of the way, let's move on to our 

4 major tips on how to answer the "tell me about yourself" interview question.

Tip 1: Give Snapshot Of Your Work History

What this means is, you're going to go back in time to the earliest professional job you have ever held and you are going to start your story from there.

This includes:
  1. Company name
  2. What title you held when you were in that position
  3. How long you stayed in that position
  4. Most importantly, what were your major responsibilities in that position.
For example, let's say that you started off your career 5 years ago as a Financial Analyst and then you moved up to Senior Financial Analyst and now, you're a Finance Manager.

When you tell your story, you're going to start off with your role as a financial analyst. And you're going to say something along the lines of, 
  • "I started off my career as a Financial Analyst 5 years ago with XYZ company where I performed full-cycle accounting duties, month-end close procedures and assisted with budgeting and forecasting on a monthly basis.."
Now you're going to do that for each and every one of your positions that you've held up to the current position that you're holding right now.

Tip 2: Make Your Mini-Stories "Achievement Oriented."

After you've told the employer about the company you were at, the title that you held, the number of years you were there, and the major responsibilities that you had in that position, 
You're then going to also describe one major accomplishment that you were able to achieve in that role.

An accomplishment is where you have saved time, saved money, improved processes, improved profitability. 
Anything where you've done something that has resulted in a quantifiable, ideally quantifiable result for your company or your department.

To add to our example, you will say:
  • "I started off my career as a Financial Analyst 5 years ago with XYZ company where I performed full-cycle accounting duties, month-end close procedures and assisted with budgeting and forecasting on a monthly basis... In that role, a major accomplishment I'm most proud of was that I was able to reduce the time spent on month-end procedures by developing an Excel model which automated a major accounting process. This resulted in a time savings of approximately 1 day per month"
You'll do both this tip #2 and tip #1 in conjunction with each other, for every single position that you've held.

Tip 3: Tell The Employer What You Know About That Role.

Once you've gone through your entire story, and you've told the employer about your major roles as well as the accomplishments that you've achieved. 

It's now time to acknowledge to the employer what you know they need for this particular position that they're hiring for.

To continue on our example, you'll then say:
  • "I understand that for this position of finance manager you are hiring for, you're looking for someone with strong process improvement skills..."
The reason why this is so important and that so many people don't do this, is because what it does, psychologically, is that it tells the employer that not only are you aware of your abilities and your achievements, but that you're also aware of he or her needs as well, and what they're looking for.

When you can say something as simple as just simply acknowledging, it's creating a connection with the employer, it's not you any longer talking at them, you're talking to them. 

Tip 4: Tell The Employer Why You Are Fit For What They Need.

This is the icing on the cake, it's the cherry on top. And it's the one thing that many people don't even bother to say when they're answering this or any other interview questions. And that is, to tell the employer to literally spoon feed them, to maybe even brainwash them to understand why you are the one that fit for this position.

To add onto out example, you would say something like:
  • "I understand that for this position of finance manager you are hiring for, you're looking for someone with strong process improvement skills... Overall, due to my strong background and achievments in successfully, identifying gaps, and creating efficiencies, i'm confident i will be able to succeed in the role you're hiring for."
You just need to tell the employer why you're the perfect person for the job. In this case, you're being very clear and specific. Even without them asked you why you're the right fit 

You're literally just feeding it to them and telling them, I'm the right fit for the role. Above all else.

Now you know how to answer one of the toughest interview questions.

5 Strategies For Finding Great Real Estate Deals

5 Strategies For Finding Great Real Estate Deals
Real Estate Deals!

There are 2 main issues that almost everybody who reads our blog has, they can't find any deals and they can't find any money. Well, I'm not going to focus on the second one, I am going to focus on how do you find good deals, because after all if you find a good deal you can find the money to back that up
  • In other words, if you find a great deal you should be able to find a way to put it together so really everything comes down to finding a deal,
  • Today I want to share with you my top 5 strategies for finding a great real estate deal even in a competitive market.
Keep in mind, you don't need to do all 5 of these in order to find a deal, in fact just focus on one of these right now and rock it, become really good at that one avenue and if you want to branch out to more and more then you can always do so 

Let me give you the list of the top 6 you can use to find a good deal

1. MLS - Stand For Multiple Listing Service

Maybe you are familiar with that or not, the multiple listing service is basically where agents put their properties for sales, so if you're a real estate agent you're probably going to list for sale on the what's called the MLS.

Again, if you're like hey I'm going to go and list my property for sale, the agent is going to put it on the multiple listing service so all other agents can go and look at it.

That's where most people in the world go, to look for deal at least in America and so it's the biggest playground, there's a lot of properties there but there's a lot of people looking as well, so if you want to do good on the MLS, you got to be a little bit smarter than your average bear, I got 4 tips for doing that.

Tip #1: I would recommend finding an investor-friendly agent

An investor-friendly agent can help you find the best deals that are out there because they understand what you're looking for.

Tip #2: Look for what's called a hidden potential

Hidden potential means you're looking for things that nobody else sees in a property.

Tip #3: Look for fixer-uppers

A fixer-upper obviously is something that needs to be fixed up, a lot of people don't like buying them because there are a lot of work, there's a little bit of risk involved, so if you can look for a fixer-upper you can sometimes find an amazing deal that way 

Tip #4: Be either the first or last in a deal

When you're trying to buy in MLS, there's a lot of competitions, so you either need to be the first one to jump at a deal which means get automatic alerts set up for deals that match what you're looking for 

When deal comes on the market don't delay, don't wait, rush go get them or be the last one, in other words wait and look for deal that have been on the market for months and maybe even years and go in negotiate on those ones because nobody else is looking at them anymore, so the competition is a little bit lower.

2. Driving For Dollars

Driving for dollars is this idea where you get in your car and you go out and you drive and you look for vacant properties, it's very easy to find, look overgrown like junk in the yard that looks like it's been there a long time, the more you do it the more you'll realize what a vacant house they kind of stand out like a sore thumb not too hard to find.

So what you're doing when you're driving for dollars if you're looking for these properties then you're going to go home and research, you're going to look for the owner of the property, you can usually find it online on your County Assessors website

You want to contact the owner and maybe a letter or you want to call them if you can do some phone number research, call them and say hey you want to sell? Not everyone is going to sell but some of them might

3. Direct Mail Marketing

Maybe you've heard this term before direct mail marketing is something done in a lot of different industries, for example, car dealership love doing it, 
You get a piece of mail that say congratulations you won a new car. You didn't really win the car but they're trying to get your attention that maybe you'll go test-drive a car and then if you test-drive it maybe you'll end up buying it

They mail thousand of letters hoping a few people end up test-driving and a few of them end up buying.
  • Same thing with real estate you send out thousands of letter hoping that a few people will call you to sell their property and then a few of those calls will turn into sales.
Direct mail marketing can be a great way to scale up your business because if you want more deals just spend more money on letters, typically a letter might cost you around $1 to $0.40 including postage, you can save some money by doing the work yourself or you can spend more and have somebody else do it all for you.

There's a lot of companies out there that will handle direct mail marketing for you. 

Keep in mind that with direct mail marketing you want to focus on 4 things

a. Your List 

Your list is who you send too. Maybe absentee landlords or people that are 90 days late on their mortgage, you can buy list online.

b. The actual mail that you send out

What is the in the mail, maybe postcard or letters, whatever?

c. Focus on your funnel

What that means is focus on every part of that, 
  1. How many letters did you send
  2. How many phone calls did you receive
  3. How many deals did you close
Do work on that funnel and always keep track of that funnel, where you at, how can you improve it if you got 50 phone calls out of a thousand letter that's 5%, what could you do to get 7% or 8%

d. You've got the follow-up

Focus on your follow-up because the key with direct mail marketing is you never usually get the deal on your first mailing. Sometimes you get lucky. 

Keep mailing these people, you might want to mail every month or every 3 months whatever you decide for years and eventually when they're ready to sell who are they going to go to, somebody they never heard of, or maybe contact the guy who's the house or the girl who's the house buyer.

4. Wholesalers

A wholesaler is somebody who goes through all of these things that will are be talking about today, and they do a lot of different strategies to find good deals, once they find them, they don't actually want to buy them
A wholesaler is a middleman, wholesaler finds good deals and then basically just sells them, flips them or however they get the deal to an end buyer
There's a lot of wholesalers out there today that is looking for good deals and they're going to mark it up a little bit maybe they get the deal under contract for $50,000 and then they're going to see if you want to buy it for $55,000

They make a quick $5,000 just by marketing it up but $55,000 might be a great deal for you. A wholesaler can be a great way to potentially find deals but you got to find the wholesaler

5. A Lead Website

A lead generating website is a website that you own that has something like. "l buy houses" and these areas kind of a message. There's a number of ways to create a lead website

If you are a little bit tech savvy you can use WordPress to do it yourself or you can use wix.com, Squarespace and more. You can create a website but you don't have to have any technical knowledge but you do have to do all the writing yourself, you have to know what you're getting into and make all the pages and within a few hours of work, you can probably create a decent-looking lead generation website.

5 Ways To Start Investing In Real Estate

5 Ways To Start Investing In Real Estate
Investing In Real Estate

In this article, I am going to go over 5 ways you can invest in real estate even if you don't have the money to go out and buy a property. And without wasting time, let go straight to the article.

1. Investing in REIT Stocks

A REIT is a Real Estate Investment Trust. And that's just a fancy way of saying that, a REIT is a company that owns and invests in real estate. When you invest in a REIT you don't own the physical real estate itself, you own shares in the company that owns the real estate

Theoretically, if real estate values rise so should the value of your REIT.

But the power of REITs goes way beyond that, the thing that makes REIT so special is that they are required by law follow the 90% rule which says that they have to pay out 90% of their taxable income to shareholders through dividends.

That means if you're looking for passive income a REIT is a great place to start because they are required to pay back most of their profit which comes through things like real estate rental incomes back to their owners through dividends and you don't have to do any of the work.

To give you an example of what I mean, CP executive, did a study and they found that the average dividend for a healthcare REIT which is a REIT that invests in senior housing, hospitals, and other healthcare buildings, the average dividend in 2018 was 6.1% over the year and that doesn't factor in any appreciation.

You can compare that to your bank savings account, are you guaranteed to make money when you invest "NO" you might even lose money, but this is why it's so important for you to do your due diligence

The way you invest in REITs is the same way you invest in a stock. You have to open up a stock brokerage and then you figure out which REIT you want to invest in and then you fund the trade

2. Becoming a Partial Equity Owner

You can be a partial owner in a real estate deal like, let's say you find a $100,000 property that you want to invest in but you don't have the money to buy this property yourself, so you can go out and find other people who have money that wants to invest in this deal and you can put it together and then you can keep a percentage of equity in this property.

You can also negotiate some ownership for putting in the work to find the property and renovate the property and manage the property properly, just remember any time you invest in real estate you should always have an attorney on your side so make sure you speak to an attorney in your area before you do this

3. Real Estate Crowdfunding

The way real estate crowdfunding works is you invest a small amount of money and then your money is pooled together with the whole bunch of investors and then this money is used to go out and buy real estate and you get your share of the profits

One thing to remember with crowdfunding is that you're not usually getting actually ownership in the property, you're just getting your share of the appreciation and your share of the rental income minus expenses

But that is not too bad because you don't have to do any of the work.

4. Turning Your House Into an Investment Property

If you own your house right now and you are thinking of moving instead of selling your house, you could rent it out and turn this property into an income-producing property.
  • And now you can create a new stream of income because you have rent coming in from this property and this rent should ideally cover your mortgage, your expenses and put some money in your pocket.
One quick point on this, you usually have to live in your home for at least one year before you can turn it into a rental without any problems, so make sure you speak to an attorney before you do this to make sure you're not running into any issues

5. Buying Real Estate Creatively Like Through a Land Contract

I don't need to tell you that you can go out and buy a property with cash or get a loan from the bank to buy a property. Everybody knows that. So let me talk about creative financing.

If you want to buy a property and you don't want to go to the bank to get the money to buy it or you can't go to the bank to get the money to buy it, you can ask the seller of the property to give you the money so you can buy their property

This types of seller financing are usually called a land contract and you have a way more negotiating room of the terms of a land contract than you deal with negotiating a mortgage or a loan with the bank
I've seen deals where buyers didn't have to make any payments to the seller for 6 months, this way they had time to come in to renovate the property and start generating some income before they had to make a single payment.
It's all negotiable but it is still debt, so if you don't make your payments, the seller can come in and they can foreclose on the properties so you have to be smart.

Bad Money Habits to Break This Year

Bad Money Habits to Break This Year

Today we're going to be looking at 5 bad money habits that you need to break this year and you can do this but I have had a nail-biting habit for as long as I can remember and I know how hard it can be to break a bad habit but from trying to beat this thing for so many years the first step was becoming aware that I was doing it

When I was biting my nails I didn't realize that I was biting them and in my case, it took someone else letting me know when I was biting them to help me realize that I was biting my nails,

Let Get Started

First, we need to focus on becoming aware when we're actually participating in them and that will make it much easier to slay these dragons.

1.  Paying The Minimum On Your Credit Card Balance

Most credit card only requires you to make a minimum payment each month as you probably know which is typically a really small and fixed them out, sometimes $20 to $25, if you have a big balance it might be $50 or more

This actually a small percentage of your balance normally from $1 to 3% and so paying this minimum is tempting. Especially if money is tight, but when you do this you are linking the time that it's going to take you to pay off the debt and you're increasing the amount of total interest that you're going to pay.
  • That $100 pair of shoes that you bought might ultimately end up costing you like $300 to $400.
This year let's focus on breaking that bad habit and getting in the habit of making payment in full, if at all possible that is the way you want to use a credit card, that is the way the financially savvy used credit card, they make the full payment, they pay the entire balance off every month 
  • I've been in a situation just like you where you don't have enough money to pay the balance in full and for whatever reason, you've racked up some credit card debt and you can't pay the full thing off
That's very normal and common but that's a situation that we want to get out of as soon as possible.

2. Paying For Stuff That You Don't Actually Need

The reality is that so many of us are wasting so much money on stuff that we aren't actually using and it really begins to add up, so if you have a gym membership that you're not using and I know you're thinking you might go later, but if you're actually not, then just save the money until you're ready to go again 

If it's a Netflix subscription you never use, Hulu or even if it's buying stuff from the grocery store that you aren't eating, all of this begins to add up and it actually becomes a whole lot of money.

3. Having No Idea Where Your Money Is Going

With technology this day there's absolutely no excuse not to know what's going on with your money. It's so much easier in real time to see what's going on with your money and yet at the same time so many of us are just completely clueless about what's going on with their money

Let's make it a point this year to actually figure out what's going on with your money.

4. Not Making Savings Automatic

One of the secrets of financially wise people is they don't rely on their willpower to make good money decisions, in fact I've never met a single person who has saved a ton of money or saved a lot of retirement or anything else who did it just by remembering to save money each week, that just doesn't work for many people. 

What does work is making it automatic and this is the secret that all the financially wise people know, they know that I need to create a system that's going to save for me automatically and I don't have to think about it and my willpower is out of the picture
  • Again this is one of those things that being alive in the 21st century has actually made this really simple because you and I can create a system that automatically saves for us with no effort on our part 
there are a lot of different ways you can do this, you can set something up like this with many banks where they automatically pull a certain amount out of your checking account in your saving account each month. That works great and if you are looking to do some investing with these I will go into that in more detail on our next article

But regardless of how you do it, you need to create some sort of system that is saving for you and investing for you automatically.

I would love to know what else that you would add to this list, you can drop your comment below.

Should You Investing While In Debt?

Should You Investing While In Debt?

Should you be investing while you are in debt and there is no black and white answer here but I want you to look at four different things you should consider if you were thinking about investing 
Any debt that is about 5% 6% 7% I will advise you to pay off right away before investing too much money.

If you are carrying credit card debt anything that double digits you want to pay that off almost immediately, get rid of that almost before you start investing 

You Should Pay Off Your Debt

Let's start off with some of the pros of paying off your debt, what are some of the benefits of focusing on the debt first and getting rid of it and then moving on to investing or other types of various asset allocations that you want to deal with in the future
  • The reason for paying off debt first there is a really big reason for this and that is the feeling of freedom, a feeling of liberation when you finally don't owe anybody anything at all.
I know personally when you carry a lot of debt especially like credit card debt or maybe car loans it's definitely this feeling of sort of drowning in a sense or suffocating when you have these monthly bills coming in month after month and you are owing interest on that and it's definitely not a good feeling we can agree on that
  • Paying off your debt first you are going to get to that $0 mark where you don't owe anybody anything and it's a really good feeling 
There is another benefit for paying off your debt first and the reason for that is because it's more predictable, what I mean by this is you know that maybe your interest rate is 6% and you know 6% annually for the next 36 months 

You know that if you pay $2,000 a month for the next 36 months you know where you are going to be, financially, whereas if you are investing you don't necessarily know where those investments are going to be next year, that is a benefit of paying off your debt first

It is a little bit more predictable than investing 

The Downside Of Paying Off Your Debt

There are some downsides though to focusing so much on paying your debts that you are not really thinking about investing you are just paying off the mortgage and the student loan, the car loans, credit card bills, and the downside of that is sometimes you can get so wrapped up in that 
  • You blink and all of a sudden you are 45 or 50 years old and you haven't even started investing, you only have retirement account set up because you are just paying off your mortgage and your student loans and all kinds of different debts you have build up over the past 30 years of your life or whatever, and that could be a serious issue.

Start Investing

You probably want to set up something, there is a happy medium in between these two and you want to do something personally, I would take advantage of my 401k plan, if your employer offers some type of retirement plan definitely take advantage of that or some type of stock ownership plan where they're matching your contribution

That is something you probably want to consider even while carrying some level of debt, so I think setting up retirement accounts almost regardless of how much debt you have is important at least in part important you don't have to put tons of money into those retirement accounts if you are carrying large amounts of debt

But I think it is important to just get the ball rolling with investments

Stupid Mistake People Make About Investing And Paying Off Debt

There's really some benefit to focusing a lot on investing over paying off your debt, and one of the biggest benefits for doing that is this possibility of essentially making more money with your investments than you're paying with your debt
  • What I mean by this is, the goal here for most people is that they would take their earnings from their investments and pay off their debt with the earnings from their investments
You've to be really careful with this because you don't want to put yourself in a position where you're planning on paying off your debt with your investments earning because the problem that can occur here is that sometimes there is going to be external factor that affects your investments and even the most intelligent investors of all time Warren Buffet, Carlie Munger, Benjamin Graham

They have losing times, they have months where they lose, they have years where they lose and just about everybody in 2008 going into 2009 a lot of people lost money, and so you could be an amazing investor, you could be a genius, but there is still going to be external factors that can affect you and your investments

Sometimes people don't always make the best decisions and sometimes there's thing that is out of your control that is going to negatively affect your investment portfolio and the problem can occur when your investment starts going down, an investment account starts decreasing maybe it drops 10% to 20% in a matter of a couple months maybe we hit a recession or something else happens to the company that was unforeseen

Your investment account was down and your debt is still pilling up because you are so focused on paying into your investment account that you haven't focused on your debt at all

Working From Home To Be Your Own Boss

1. Proofreader

You're probably thinking well proofreader, who needs that? Anybody who creates online content which is pretty much every company you can think of, everybody has a website, they sometimes need a proofreader, they need a proofreader to read over blog posts or to read over online content 

You could specialize in certain areas of proofreading they can make anywhere from $2,000 a month to $50,000 a year. It just depends on what you specialize in and how strong your writing is

I would definitely say that you probably need to have a strong background in language arts to be able to become a proofreader, you definitely don't have to have a degree or anything like that to be a good proofreader

There's a lot of websites online where you can find any type of freelance work like www.upwork.com

But pretty much anyone who publishes any type of online content can possibly need a proofreader and if that is something that interests you, you should definitely take a look at it

2. Freelance Writing

I've talked about this before and I just remember seeing comments about how hard it is to freelance and how it's hard to find clients, but if you believe in yourself and your work is really good you will find clients
