In any new business you start of being the generator of income, working hard to get money and opportunities for the company. Eventually, as the business becomes profitable, you need to shift your mindset in order to propel the company forward.

Welcome to the Inflow Podcast! I am your host Michelle Bosch!
As always it is wonderful to share sometime together with you. Thank you for allowing me into your
space, your world.
As of the time of this recording the InFLOW Podcast has been now airing 8 months…its incredible how
time flies when you are having fun and learning a ton along the way. I’ve had a record number of
downloads of the podcast and it couldn’t have been possible without the help of so many on my team,
the amazing women that have been my guests and are deeply devoted to women’s advancement… but
most importantly you. Thank you for tuning in every week and allowing me to share strategies for
growth, for wealth as well as the inspiring lives of the women I have brought on to the show.
In order for the InFLOW Podcast to rise to the next level and continue to reach more women ready to
step into OVERFLOW of Cash Flow, Ease and Grace in their life…I need your help. If you have not done
so already please after the show take a few moments to leave me a 5 Star Review as well as a written
one….your reviews are the single most important component to high ratings allowing this podcast to
reach more people.
In today’s episode I would like to share with you 2 concepts that have been invaluable as a leader in
business and in my personal life. Today I want to talk to you about the distinction between being a
Generator and a Creator in your life and business.
I made this distinction a few years back out of necessity. Not because I am so bright…but because my
physical body started giving up on me. I experienced intense burnout for the first time in 2011 and it
took almost a year and a half to recover from it and during that time I had to figure out how to continue
accomplishing my goals and bringing my dreams to reality while still healing. So it really wasn’t smarts as
you can see what brought me to the lessons I will share with you today but instead my body…my body
forced me to again be open to possibilities and to the realization that I was ready to expand my heart
not just my mind. During that year and a half every time I expanded my heart I met life with optimism
and I started recovering and gaining strength and energy physically, mentally, emotionally, and
Soooo many entrepreneurs are experiencing burnout…both male and female its almost an epidemic. As
a woman though I know that I am part of the first generation of women that have the luxury of
experiencing burnout from our careers so that is a beautiful thing in a way I guess.
So let me start at the beginning because it is probably similar to your beginning regardless of whether
you are just starting your real estate investing business or are a seasoned entrepreneur. When we all
start our businesses…day in and day out in your little start up… you are face with Complexities of
scarcity. I say complexities of scarcity because almost all the problems you are facing are the result of
not having enough money, or enough time, or enough of the right relationships, or not enough team, or
not enough distribution or enough skills, enough courage, enough will, enough discipline…you name
it…not enough of a whole lot of things…. and so you wear all hats in your business and its generally a
phase in your business where you have to say yes to many things including rolling up your sleeves,
saying yes to opportunities that perhaps you shouldn’t, to clients and customers that you shouldn’t
have, to partnerships that you shouldn’t have and doing the work and doing whatever it takes to get
your business going. When you start a business its your willingness to say yes to everything and
GENERATE RESULTS (code word here GENERATE)…so you being a GENERATOR is what brings capacity
and capability and keeps the doors open, the lights on and keeps revenue and cash coming in.
And so you continue growing… you then become profitable and continue saying yes to everything and
your plate gets full…and you don’t know any other way to be successful so you continue doing
everything and continue being a GENERATOR saying yes to everything because that’s what brought
you to your current level of success…. however what you don’t realize is that you have turned the
corner and you are no longer in the world of complexities of scarcity but complexities of abundance.
So many businesses crash and implode as a result of the leader not realizing complexities of
abundance are the next challenge of their next rise to becoming CREATORs of opportunities.
Ask me how I know this? Well, in order to experience the levels of success I had experience I only knew
how to be a GENERATOR and so that’s what I knew how to do and kept pushing through with that
strategy In spite of having a team… and the consequence was I run myself to the ground…my focus had
always been on 3 of the 4 pillars of business. There are 4 Pillars in business The Why (which has to do
with the leader and their Higher Purpose for starting a business), The Who (which is the team), The
What (Which is the product or service or solution and value you are bringing to the marketplace) and
the HOW (the strategies, processes, systems and tactics) and I can talk about these in detail and what
each entails on a future episode. Most of the high level conversations with our coaching clients and
Investors are around these 4 Pillars.
So let me continue…Big reasons Why had led us to succeed, the right What….in our case playing in the
right asset class…. such as land…. where we had virtually no competition, no hassles like you have in the
house world…. and the ability with that asset class to produce HUGE one-time cash profits and Cash flow
allowed me in the beginning and to this day to succeed.
Both my husband and I are very left brain type of people so very process oriented individuals so the right
HOW in other words the right unique process, systems, strategies and tactics had allowed us to succeed
and Team…well we did have a team and building a team allowed us to transact in large volume but my
FOCUS up until 2011 had never been truly to develop leaders in our team. The extent to what I
dedicated time in this Pillar was to recruit, train, incentivize and manage our TEAM but never to create
But when you find yourself in the stage of complexities of abundance the only way to rise to the next
level as I know now…is by becoming a CREATOR of Possibilities and Magic and you do that through the
CREATION of LEADERs in your existing team and bringing on new Team members that have the
expertise, drive, core values, and acumen of where you want to go. This will require as a business owner
that you step out of your comfort zone and have the courage and humility to bring on board people
who are smarter and better than you in all the things that you are not good at. But for those people you
bring on board…what you are not good at is THEIR GENIUS.
Leaders in your team that share your drive, vision, your purpose, your values and have Genius expertise
and skills are the ones who allow you to grow in capacity but more than anything they are the ones that
take on the challenges of the complexities of abundance. Some of the complexities of abundance are
having too many clients, too many projects, too many OPPORTUNITIES that come your way and you
can’t handle or….. OPPORTUNITIES that could exist don’t materialize because you are too busy and tired
to be Creative and CREATE and Innovate. Leaders in your team allow you to iterate in many zeros when
it comes to business growth.
I know that for me the shift from Generator to Creator meant that I would no longer be the mind that
does the work exclusively but the mind that guides the work===on our the educational business I focus
on strategic guidance and let my team LEAD and on our Investing business I focus on asset management
and ensuring strategic predictable growth while letting my team LEAD and for my team to LEAD…I must
be on an ongoing mission to create LEADERS.
The Creator Energy that I and Jack have been cultivating for some years now…IS what helps us to
experience economic prosperity and brings more inflows of Cash whether in the form of one time Cash
or Passive Cash Flow with Ease and Grace without pushing ourselves to exhaustion because we are
tapping into the Genius and expertise of others…. but it definitely required a very important
ingredient…it required faith…it requiredthat we have faith in others and faith in the unknown
opportunities out there and when they show up trust others around us and in our path to help us take
So you as the leader of your family and your business have the JOB of identifying and figuring out when
you are at that point where you need to step out of your comfort zone of being a Generator and shift to
becoming a Creator of Possibilities in your business and in your life.
This single shift has allowed us to create a Culture in our Investing and Educational businesses that is
unrivaled, it allows us to dominate in our industries and first and foremost Create the right environment
to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible in bringing our Mission of unlocking the 4Cs of
wealth for families now and into the future. Those 4C’s of Wealth are— courage, confidence, capability
and cash flow.
I strongly believe that FOR Leaders whether in the real estate or any industry for that matter… the
biggest puzzle to solve and fit together and merge is this idea of moving from being a GENERATOR which
is mainly a result of using almost exclusively your left brain to becoming a CREATOR which requires
cultivation of your right brain and expanding your heart and faith in others and really merging or
marrying these two tendencies to help us all as a society get to our NEXT RISE.
Maybe you are listening right now and realize that you have always been playing in Generator Mode in a
Job that you hate or in your business and its time to either stop exchanging hours for dollars on a
carrousel that takes you no where…. and start cultivating being in CREATOR Mode…of course I will
advocate for real estate because that is what I do and love…. so if you’re ready to learn something new
