I can analyze deals in my sleep.
I can predict what every seller is going to say in every conversation. Usually within the first 10 seconds.
I can answer every objection every seller has.
I can tell if I’m going to be able to do a deal with a seller LONG before they even know it.
I was once happy about making $5,000, but now it just pisses me off. It takes just as much work to make $15,000 as it does to make $5,000.00.
Shiny object syndrome is only a distraction. Staying focused on MY business plan is what works for me. I don’t care what other people are doing.
I’ve been there, done that.
My only goal now is to make as much money as I can, doing as little work as possible, without changing the system that is already in place. In other words, I’m only trying to PERFECT what is already working for me, not introduce new things.
The income that works for me might not work for you. It’s not always about making all of the money. To me, it’s about enjoying my time and my life with my husband and family . I set my income goals based on what will allow me to continue my lifestyle, while preparing for my future at the same time. I don’t enter “dick swinging contests”. I leave those for other people.
You should also do what is best for you and you alone.
I’m completely and totally happy with the way my business looks and the way my bank account looks. Financial experts say that you can live [pretty much] any lifestyle you want with an income of $350,000 or more, and I exceed that every year. Everything over that is a bonus.
The beginning of your relationship with real estate is similar to falling in love. You’ll want to live and breathe it every second of the day. You may even become obsessive with wholesaling houses. It seems so beautiful and mysterious and you want to earn everything that you possibly can.
Then after a couple of years, the newness wears off and you realize that it’s not as glamorous as you thought, and it’s not as easy as it seems. You may even question if this is the right thing for you now that you see the challenges.
Going into years 3-7 of wholesaling houses, you’ll start “settling in” and doing things like cherry picking deals, only calling back the sellers that you feel like are worth your time, and choosing your battles. Similar to being married and having an argument. You won’t win them all, and some of them just aren’t worth engaging with. Yes, you may try out some new things to create some buzz, but if you don’t see instant gratification, then they’re out, and what you know works is back in the game.
After 10-15 years, you appreciate the things that you have, the things you’ve learned, and now look for subtle ways to improve the relationship. It’s now developed into a mature status, and you’re comfortable knowing that it’s dependable and trustworthy. Yes, you still need to nurture it or else it will fizzle out, but you know what’s needed to make it tick. It’s already the perfect match, now it’s your job to keep it running smoothly and not fuck it up.
When you’re half dead, you’ll be thankful for the relationship that you did have with real estate and wholesaling houses, and know that it got you where you are. It carried you there, with a systematic, predictable way that no other business could. And for that, you’ll be forever grateful.
