Have you ever thought…
- “How do I find GOOD tenants?”
- “How do I get my tenants to pay ON TIME?”
- “Is DAMAGE to my rental just something that’s part of the business?”
- “What OTHER Mistakes am I making that’s costing me MONEY!?“
It all started out easy enough…
One rental 🏠 then two… then a few more 🏦👌
I had those 5 rentals, plus my “real job” ⌚ where I punched a clock.
Stealing time from my employer, dealing with my rentals when I should have been focused on work…
Stealing work time, I later heard that’s called “undertime”… Undertime sounds so much better than STEALING 🙄
Stealing or not, I often thought to myself “Someday, this will all pay off…”
I told myself I just had to keep fighting the fight 👊 and grow my portfolio 📈 to the point where I could leave this job behind, be my own boss, and most of all…
💲💰🌴 Live Life on MY Terms!!! 💲🌴🚢
Fast forward a few more years. I had figured out how to grow my real estate portfolio using not just bank financing, but a host of creative real estate techniques.
I was proud of what I built with my 92 rental units… I finally had enough to leave that J.O.B. and that S.O.B. boss behind for good…
Unfortunately, I had to admit a hard truth🤔:
This rental business I’d been working SO HARD AT would NEVER deliver the Life I was hoping for!
Because I was focused on GROWTH AT ALL COSTS, It never occurred to me that all I created was another miserable JOB!
Missing the point
Wasn’t the whole point to STOP working a Job?🙄
Where is all this FREEDOM I was promised?😭
I had 92 rentals, working 90 hours a week to have “stuff” I never got to use.
That was the opposite of freedom.
That is BONDAGE 😟
THINK ABOUT THAT
As cool as it might be to have a boat 🚤 it’s NOT cool to have a boat that sits on a trailer in your driveway!
As cool as it is to have a boat, it’s NOT cool to have a boat that just sits on a trailer in your driveway.
Seek first to be Time-Wealthy, that is, to have Freedom on your Calendar”
It doesn’t have to be this way
“WHAT IF…” I thought, “Instead of focusing on making more money to buy more stuff…”
“What if I shifted my focus to freeing up my calendar, to create more FREEE-TIME first?” Then I could focus on whatever I wanted!
What if indeed…
Imagine you had all the FREEDOM to do what you wanted, so you can have TIME for the stuff, and PEOPLE you want in your Life?
The truth is, creating a business that delivers your ideal Life is not as hard as you might think, and it doesn’t cost as much as you might think.
That’s where the VIP Method comes in.
It takes Vision
The VIP Method is what I wrote about in my book, The Time Wealthy Investor 2.0. It stands for Vision, Infrastructure, and Process.
This is the process I developed to STOP working 16, 18, or 20 hours a day, working for a MISERABLE boss (me), being at the beck-and-call of my tenants!
It’s also the method I use to Coach my students on helping them create intentional businesses, and intentional lives.
This isn’t Your Fault
Most of the stuff you’re reading is focused on one thing:
“How to buy more”
Nothing, not one book on real estate investing I read in the early days taught me how to create a real estate BUSINESS… How to have a LIFE.
Everything was “GROW GROW GROW!!” and “MORE IS BETTER…”
That’s why I wrote the VIP Method into The Time-Wealthy Investor 2.0
This Life is not a dress rehearsal
I’m a husband, father, and veteran of the U.S. Marines. I have constructed a real estate business that allows me to have an abundance of Time where I am able to control my calendar to do the things I want, when I want, and with whom I want to do them.
Ask yourself honestly, are you:
- 😭Tired of watching your kids getting older and growing up without you?
- 🙄Weary of time getting away from you… eroding your friendships, relationships, your MARRIAGE?
- ✅Ready to no longer sit by and let Life be lived by others who were simply more intentional?
- Here’s a direct one, do you know your lease better than you know your vows? (ouch)
Here’s the reality:
“I have made nearly every mistake one can make in real estate investing”
For a long time I was SUPER embarrassed to admit my failures. The fact is I lost millions, learned from my mistakes, and grew back MANY times stronger both in my Life and in my Bank Account.
I heard this a while ago and I think it’s worth sharing:
The wise man learns from his mistakes.
The wiser man learns from the mistakes of others. 👊
I can help you avoid the REALLY expensive mistakes. Mistakes that cost me a fortune, a fortune in both money and time.
