I’m recording from my front yard on July 5 and I’m just putting down some thoughts I’ve been contemplating while enjoying Independence Day. Let me tell you about my day: all 6 family members were together all day.
We all had breakfast together, which is not an everyday occurrence lately. Then we watched a silly movie, then we went to a pool and next had some really great barbecue from Sugar Fire.
After eating all we could at the best barbecue spot in St. Louis, we watched the fireworks display at a local mall. An all-American 4th if ever there was one.
I’m on Instagram now watching Jack Bosch; Jack and his wife are both first-generation immigrants. I guess they had work visas when they came here because both had professional jobs when they met.
Jack told a strong story on Instagram on the 4th. He says the United States is the best place in the world for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Other countries don’t make it as easy to create a business.
Several of the execs of Silicon Valley, for instance, are immigrants. Sergey Brin, co-creator of Google, was born in Moscow. Think how much Google shapes our day-to-day lives.
In the US, you can thrive with entrepreneurship. It’s one of the freedoms we have, one of the freedoms we celebrate on the 4th, when you get right down to it.
Be grateful for that and the other freedoms we have. And even though we complain about them all the time, keep in mind that the tax rate here is one of the lowest in the world.
Spread your gratitude and good fortune. Do good things. Maybe you could take a less fortunate person into your business and teach them real estate investing. That would be a life-changer for both of you.
Listen and learn:
- Be thankful for the freedoms you have in the US, including the freedom to be an entrepreneur.
- You can learn about land investing from Jack Bosch.
- Be producers, not just consumers… give less fortunate people your attention to see what they need.
- God is neither a Republican nor a Democrat… those labels just don’t matter all the time.
