If you are someone that’s working a full-time job, but you want to do real estate full-time, then gather round because I have ten things you need to get straight before you strike out on your own. I worked as a civil engineer building power plants while I built up my real estate investing business, so I know a few things about making that jump into full-time investing.
Don’t freak out your spouse by making that jump blindly. If you want to get your partner on your side, then you need to be prepared for the amount of hard work it takes to have your own business. Not having that regular paycheck can be one of the scariest issues your marriage has ever had to face.
I’m going, to be honest about some of the preparation I didn’t take before I quit. I wasn’t always the hardest worker when I was at my W-2 job. Don’t be like me. You’re going to quit and work harder than you ever have in your life, but it’s going to be worth it.
As an added bonus, I’m including some of my favorite books about entrepreneurship and mindset that you should read to get your mind right. I know I recommend these books all of the time, but they are amazing because they’ll help you take your business idea and improve on it.
Listen and learn:
- Why you absolutely must read Profit First if you’re thinking even just a little about quitting your job.
- What is the most important skill for an entrepreneur?
- Your work ethic before you quit your job matters a ton.
