So many people quit their jobs to start their own businesses and then wind up working twice as hard. The goal of working for yourself isn’t to work more hours – no one wants that. They do it because they want financial freedom and to live the life of their dreams. You have to make sure you have a clear vision of what you want your life to be like and then you build your business around it. It all starts with designing it and being intentional about it, whatever you wind up creating.
Being brilliant at the basics of real estate is so important because it makes things easy. It has the power to generate stress-free abundance. Many business owners create a huge beast that they have to feed every month, but they don’t turn a huge profit that affords them the life they truly want. So, it’s important to think about what kind of overhead you really want and ask if you want an abundant business with a lot of stress. You may not need as much money as you think you do to get to your dream life, especially if you work hard to become debt-free.
I always say that marketing is the key to running a successful real estate business because it’s the truth. The entire game is built around talking to sellers and making offers, and a solid marketing strategy is what will get you there. When you figure out how much money you have to make to live the life you want, work backward from that number, and figure out how many deals that means you’ll need to do. Do the work to find out what it takes to get there and make it happen.
