I’d be happy to answer your questions if you can explain to me what my success has to do with you. Does the fact that I have many, many properties mean that you can do it? Does the fact that I am in real estate investing full-time guarantee you can be, too? In this business, you don’t punch a clock, or answer to a boss. You are in charge of your future and how much you make, not someone else. If you want to make more money, you go and ferret out more deals. When I wanted to make more money, I went out of state for more deals. If I’d been happy, I could have sat back and cruised for awhile. It’s was up to me.
The person who says he makes $100K a year has chosen that as his income. If he wanted to make more money, he could, nothing stops him, except his own ambitions, or lack of them.
When I was still in the 8 to 5 working world, a friend told me that, for most people, there was a HUGE difference between making money and making a living. He was SOOOO right. $100K is a figure in your mind that is the dividing line between the have’s and the have-nots; the successes and the failures. If you want to make $100K in real estate investing, I can guarantee you that it is possible. Lots of people do it, and unless they change the rules, other people can do it, too.
I wrote a little text file that details some of what I did to get to where I am, and a little of what I learned along the way. If you’d like a copy, let me know.
