“No doubt, everyone almost without exception, has fear of raising capital. I was petrified of doing it. I never asked my dad for money, for anything, never asked anyone else for money. It was hard. And that’s kind of the area where people do struggle. They’re like, I don’t want to ask people, I’m going to get rejected. ” – Mark Kenney
“With raising capital, there’s no question in my mind, the easiest way to try to raise capital is to partner with somebody that has a deal already that you know, like, trust and you’re coming in and they have a track record. – Mark Kenney
“I think brokers would attest to this that yeah, you need something of value you can bring.” – Mark Kenney
“I tell people if you have an opportunity to screw somebody. Don’t do it because it’s a small world. And we just have a good reputation with sellers and brokers that we do what we say we’re going to do that are fair for people, reasonable, and we close the deals.” – Mark Kenney
“The learning process is, I would say to learn how to analyze things like that, you can do it pretty quickly. There are no substitutes for doing the deal. Everyone goes through a deal. That’s way more than I thought it was going to be, but it just gets easier as you do more.” – Mark Kenney
