2022 is the year! After all, you’ve made all of your greatest new year’s resolutions to travel more, save more, spend less, lose weight, build wealth, relationships and probably just about anything else you can think of, right? To be honest, I stopped making resolutions years ago. I can’t keep them. The lists were daunting and overwhelming. Along with no real path to get there. What I started doing was goal setting. Goals that definitely stretched me but had a series of mini goals (steps) that would help me get to that big goal. In fact, I’d challenge you to pick one or two goals and outline a series of mini goals (step) to help you accomplish them. Laser focus on one or two. Crush them. The feeling of accomplishment helps build the momentum. Getting started is not hard, it’s staying motivated and consistent when things get difficult and hard as life happens.
I don’t know about you, but life can be overwhelming. Somehow I manage two careers and run a multi-million dollar business while still managing to squeeze in a personal life that is spent with family and friends. Not to mention it, there is a lot of pressure some days; my team counts on the company for their livelihood, it’s not about me anymore. A lot of people will tell me, you have it all together. I’m going to be honest, transparent and raw for a moment. There are many days where I struggle to keep it all together and some days I swear it feels like everything is about to come tumbling down. Then I have to remember, that no one has died, we have a roof over our heads and everything is going to be alright.
As many of you know I have been doing real estate since I was a child. During that time, I have learned a lot and made some great and costly decisions. I can only imagine how many of you feel about jumping into real estate. Especially in the type of market we are in, we are in uncharted territories as property values regardless of the asset class continue to climb. It’s a good thing but for the beginner, it can be overwhelming. Even for the experienced real estate investor, mistakes can be made but if the market shifts, these mistakes can be seen and potentially affect your return on investment. So this year, it’s all about YOU. I’m all about helping you understand the fundamentals of real estate, because after all there is a lot of information out there. How do you determine what is good and bad information? It’s hard to focus in an age where we live in data overload. We’ll help you with this too with our recommendations. Remember, there are so many paths in real estate to help you achieve your financial goals– there is no wrong or better way to do it. And we’ll help educate you on those too. Looking forward to another busy year.
