Shortly after the silence gripped this conference full of eager, ambitious, driven Real Estate Investors, the presenter empathically proclaimed:
Yes it's true, money is required to buy Real Estate... BUT HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS:
It doesn't have to be your money...
Whew... there's still hope!
Back on track, is how I felt.
(Fast forward: A month later, I'd bought my first property, made a ton of mistakes, had a ton of bad luck. Sold it a years later. But I was off and running. Within 3 years, I had a property portfolio worth over $1 million. IT WAS HAPPENING.)
So after discovering you can acquire Real Estate without using your own money, I was on a QUEST.
A mission to learn from the best of the best, and most importantly, execute everything I was learning.
I worked really hard that first year… crazy hours, all night long after the 'day job' was finished.
I worked more than full time… and at the end of the year… I had started to learn the combination to the vault. I had managed to start building a Real Estate portfolio using other peoples' money.
That might not sound like much of a milestone, since I was working more than full-time hours. But it was an incredible result for me – because I started from scratch.
And I was getting a 'real world' education by doing.
I was learning, networking with key players, and my skills were growing. I was dialling in my process, it was getting tighter, and I'd started to teaching others this process.
Throughout this process of self-discovery and massive action my confidence had taken a quantum leap forward.
I had finally discovered the process to go from zero to 100 kmh.
