I’m in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for a conference and I wanted to talk about some things that have been on my mind. There are a lot of haters out there and sometimes there’s a half-truth to what they’re saying. I’ve always believed in transparency and honesty, and I take my reputation very seriously. I’ve talked about this before, but many of you know I’ve failed miserably several times in my real estate business. I’ve made a ton of mistakes, but I’ve always come out stronger because of it. I’m sharing my story to show you all that I’m not perfect and that it’s possible to overcome failure and succeed.
Here, I go in-depth about my troubles with paying off private investors. I also got into some pretty deep trouble with the IRS. I couldn’t keep up with my tax payments and then there were late fees and penalties on top of that. I eventually had to face it all head-on and about two years ago, I paid everything off. We all do stupid stuff, but I want you to know you’re not alone. Don’t get discouraged, but don’t give yourself excuses. Own up to your mistakes and ask for help, whether it’s from a coach or a trusted friend. God turned my mess into a message and if I can turn things around, you can, too.
Listen and learn:
- Mistakes I’ve made in my real estate business and how I turned them around.
- Why you shouldn’t get down on yourself about your own failures and mistakes.
