I started as an Entrepreneur when I was an adult teenager, buying an R2 lot and constructing a duplex. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing; all I knew was that I wanted to. I had an “S” on my chest mentality, which helped push me through the many unknown battles of real estate.
Since that day, I have been involved with hundreds and hundreds of real estate deals. In 1991 I obtained my general building contractors license, building over 70 single family home and multifamily units from the ground up. In 2006 I was proud to obtain my broker’s license.
After doing hundreds of deals on purpose and thru systemization, several people asked me how I did as many deals as I did. My answer then remains the same as it is now: it was a matter of marketing, understanding negotiation and respecting systems.
During my career as an entrepreneur I have come to realize that the difference between success and failure is our belief and understanding of the words Help, Want, Wish and Need and how those four words keep us from finding success.
