From Barrel Rolls to Flipping Houses: Bill Allen Shares His 7-Figure Secrets

When was the last time you felt in control of defining your journey? One of the biggest lessons we’ve learned this past year is that nothing is guaranteed. Still, even in unpredictable times, preparation is the key to overcoming challenges and becoming the hero of your journey.

For Bill Allen, CEO of 7-Figure Flipping, his journey began when he received his ROTC scholarship for the Navy. He traded in his soccer uniform for a military one. There are two vital consistent elements to life in the military that have been transformative for him: The unpredictability of where he’d be headed to next and being surrounded by a community no matter where he went.

If there’s one thing Bill Allen knows, it’s consistently turning uncertainty into opportunity. An entrepreneur at heart, he used the frequent moves during his military service to carve out a new path in real estate.

At first, Bill bought and rented a few houses, mainly in Pensacola, Florida. It took him ten properties to decide that he needed to change his investment strategy. In 2014, Allen sold one of his properties to make a serious profit. That is when he decided to add flipping houses to his real estate investing portfolio. It was around that time that he came upon a community of experienced investors that offered mentorship, business advice, and networking opportunities.

“It’s important to surround yourself with the right people who know and do more than you do. I don’t want to be the person in the room who knows the most,” says Bill.

For Bill, it’s essential to be around those who will not only motivate you but push you to challenge yourself to reach the next level, and he’s no stranger to pushing beyond the limits. When it comes to success in every aspect of his life, determination and preparation have been constant.

However, preparation can only take you so far if you are not ready to act.

He did not wait until he was “fully prepared” to leap into his real estate career. Bill remained in the Navy full-time while he jumped into a new venture because acting was the best way to stay ready while building flexibility into his regimented life. That flexibility has helped him navigate life’s uncertainties, from military moves to his son James’s heart surgeries, to an unprecedented pandemic sweeping the globe.

No amount of preparation can prepare a parent to deal with their child having to have multiple heart surgeries within the first few years of his life. For Bill Allen, although community has always been important in life and business, his son’s surgeries were pivotal in making one thing clear:

Surrounding yourself with the right community can make all the difference in the world when overcoming the highs and lows during your journey.

Community as strength

Those who come to Bill for advice on real estate investing know that they can expect to receive practical strategies rooted in real experiences by someone who’s whole-heartedly invested in his community.  Bill doesn’t shy away from sharing with his community the struggles and vulnerabilities he faced in his personal life. For him, what started as another business venture grew into a supportive community where he continues to pay it forward by sharing his system to others learning how to be the hero of their journey.

That’s why Bill is excited to bring this year’s Flip Hacking Live, the flagship 3-day event for house flippers and wholesalers, right into his community’s homes. It was the 7-Figure Flipping mastermind group that changed his mindset and approach to life and business, leading him to create a successful real estate company. Blackjack Real Estate ranked #206 on the INC 500 awards of America’s fastest-growing private companies and #6 in real estate, with a whopping three-year revenue growth of 2,081%. Bill has always been devoted to sharing his knowledge with others. He decided to turn the uncertainty of this year into an opportunity to create a brand-new experience.

This is more than just another virtual event. It’s a community coming together in a safe environment where they will be with others who have similar vulnerabilities and fears, working on building a successful business in uncertain times. There is no fluff in the 7-Figure Flipping mastermind group. It’s real people sharing real advice in a supportive environment, helping you overcome your struggles.

Why learn about house flipping now? Because when genuine opportunities come, you can join the wave of people learning them, or you can already be in a position to succeed. Flip Hacking Live will help ensure that you’re part of the latter group.

Vurbl Makes Noise with Investor Lineup and $1 million in Pre-Seed Funding

A new audio streaming platform is coming to town. Vurbl is set to shake things up as the company goes head to head with other popular platforms like Apple and Spotify. The goal of the platform is to become the “YouTube of Audio.”

Vurbl is a creator-first, free streaming audio platform for all audio types, including user generated audio. Similar to YouTube, Vurbl allows content creators to upload, earn subscribers and monetize their work. Vurbl will provide listeners that are looking to connect with  new voices and information with personalized playlists and stations across 40 categories. 

Recently, Vurbl’s CEO and co-founder, Audra Everett Gold, completed its pre-seed round closing at $1.3 million. The round was led by AlphaEdison, a knowledge-driven VC firm that invests in early-stage companies. Vurbl also attracted other investors including Halogen Ventures, TEN13, Angelist and other businesses  within the audio, advertisement and entertainment industries.

Nick Grouf, managing partner at AlphaEdison stated, “We believe Vurbl is opening up an entirely new audio market for listeners, creators and brands. This platform has the potential to change the way we consume audio on the internet and the timing is spot on. If anyone can pull this off this enormous opportunity, it’s the team at Vurbl.”

Gold launched Vurbl at the beginning of the year and once COVID-19 hit, the team opt-ed to work from home to stay safe and healthy. Gold and her team then doubled-down to develop Vurbl’s platform. Gold single handedly embarked on a journey to gain investor interest and secured funding during the pandemic mostly by way of Zoom calls.

The pre-seed funds are being used to develop and launch the Vurbl platform with over 25 million pieces of audio and podcasts. This will span across hundreds of categories and subcategories creating a sanctuary for content curators and listeners.

Gold is confident in the market demand for a streaming platform like Vurbl and stated, “Audio is scattered all over the internet in hard to find places, much of it costs money or is not findable, is not easy to playback, etc. We see millions of audio queries on Google and YouTube that reflect demand for audio of all types. The vast majority of these searches return subpar audio results or no audio results at all.”

Vurbl is uniquely positioned to win over audio aficionados with its promise of value added services and attractive revenue share program for creators.

Vurbl is set to launch its web-based platform experience in Q4 2020 with millions of discoverable audio, playlists and human-curated audio stations. The company also plans to announce additional updates including the launch of new mobile apps, a downloadable desktop app, and connected in-home devices for listeners to enjoy audio streams anytime and anywhere.
