Quick and dirty today, folks…

So, I was just working with students who came to St. Louis for the day. And, I truly enjoy spending time and talking with students who are just taking their baby steps getting started in the business.

But, let me tell you… it makes me feel nostalgic and think about my own start. Wow, I made so many mistakes. I did so many stupid things. 

But did making mistakes stop me from becoming a success? Absolutely not. I just stuck with it and kept making offers, kept flipping houses… kept my family close. My wife was and is so supportive. That’s so important, having support like that.

Know this: If your family isn’t in a good place but your business is amazing, what does it matter?

Okay, back to my main point… 

I love teaching REI. I’m passionate about helping others succeed. That’s why I create courses and do my free podcasts and these emails. I want to help you avoid the mistakes I made. 🙂

But here’s the thing… don’t be a professional student. Be a professional action taker!

Inaction is the most certain way to fail in this business. Don’t hide behind your studies. Learning is important, of course — we should always be learning. Just remember that studying real estate investment is NOT the same thing as being a real estate investor. 

Get out there and make deals now. Take massive imperfect action now. Fail forward fast. Now. You got this.
