Purpose: Investment Property Ownership is Your DestinyBeing a real estate investor means taking risks, being diligent, and integrating cleverness in all you do. There’s a bunch of lions out there after your steak, so are you just going to let them take it? You need to believe in yourself before anything. No, we’re not trying to sound like motivational speakers, but realistically this is what it’s all about. Believing in yourself, while having the confidence to take the risks you know are out there are what pave the way for rental income. If you do it just to do it or feel that “you’re not good enough” for the task at hand, you will remain mediocre. Mediocre doesn’t make the millions, a smart risk taker does. This is not just a job, it is a lifestyle.
