I’m 26 Today!
I’m thankful to have businesses that allow me freedom.
To say that I’m proud of her would be an understatement.
While we were in Providence my team contracted two off-market deals, leased a new office space, completed inspection response repairs on an MLS deal, and we got a cash offer on a wholetale that will net us right at $50,000.
I chose to be 100% present over the weekend, so I didn’t check my email. I got up this AM, got my routine done, and logged in before checking out for the day to the good news.
I’ve always said:
“You can build a business that serves or enslaves you, it’s your choice.”
My words in motion
The staff at Call Porter took all of my calls, got them to appointments, and my staff worked the leads.
I’m going to be brutal with you…
I COULD have saved some money this weekend if I did all the work. If I wasn’t in Rhode Island, if I was running the appointments, if I was making the offers, if I was touring the office space, etc it would have saved me some staff costs.
What is the freaking point in making money if you miss everything? I lived for money for a long time. I lived to build businesses. I’m choosing to live in the present instead. I’m choosing to build businesses that make a difference.
Keep an eye out!
On Thursday I’m going to send out an email breaking down the org chart of my company. Every hire I’ve ever made has given me more freedom. I’m going to show you on Thursday who does what in my company, so you can replicate it in yours.
I’m sick and tired of people pretending that their addiction to working 80 hours a week is honorable.
Brief year in review
Spending your life “building for the future” is pointless. I would rather be broke and present then leave my family millions of dollars and no memories.
Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
In the past year, I’ve bought 80+ units, moved to San Diego, tested my companies’ ability to run without me, been to Paris, launched Ballpoint marketing, rolled out my mastermind, met incredible people, and I’ve grown a ton as a human.
I can’t wait to see what the next 12-months bring my way.
