  2. Influence the Influencer: Aim for maximum results and be #1 in something for a specific target investor audience.

  3. Take massive action: Partner with a credible ally, and get there smarter, not just in the fastest way possible.

  4. Keep a low minimum investment: Be #1 or a first mover in your niche to gain quick momentum.

  5. Leverage 1031/DST structures and tax-efficient platforms: This includes self-directed IRAs and solo 401(k)s.

  6. Localize legal jurisdiction for deals and agreements: A small change like this could save time, effort, and capital.

  7. Do the opposite: If everyone else is going left, look right, as Sam Zell says.

  8. Present like a pro from every angle: Don't mention valuations upfront for early-stage companies. Approach investors by discussing the opportunity, your approach, and their potential involvement.

  9. Structure is king: Trust trumps skills or track record; the best jockey and the right race matter more than the horse or current opportunity set.
