"The difference between our dreams and reality is Action"
I mainly wanted to post this article to create a sense of responsibility ( Kind of like weight watchers! haha )
About a year ago I read Rich Dad Poor Dad, which changed my life. I come from a hardworking family and I couldn't have asked for better parents. However talking about money was a big "no no".
After I decided I wanted to retire in 10 years or less, so that I could spend the rest of my life with the people I love travelling the world, I began to indulge myself in financial education ( One of which was the BP Podcast! ).
About 8 months into my personal schooling, I began to feel like I was falling into the trap of Analysis Paralysis.
I had every excuse to not get started. The biggest one is that I didn't have any money!
I had just moved up to Raleigh, NC for a new job and moving was quite expensive.
So the first thing I could do for FREE was set a timeline for myself. I worked backwards from the date I wanted to launch my real estate company and did the math.
This simple step has done wonders for me. I saved up enough money to get going with a wholesaling company well before my actual timeline permitted.
However, actually spending the money on things like domain names and lists was very difficult. I knew this was my "poor Dad's" voice telling me to save. And I bought my first domain name.
It was only $12, but it made me feel obligated to finish this.
I'm now as passionate as ever to finding the best deals in Raleigh and I feel like nothing can stop me.
In the mean time I'm saving up for my personal Investments in multi-families. And I can honestly say I wouldn't be here now without Bigger Pockets and my local TREIA so I thank you all for that.
And now that I posted this for the world to see I guess I have to do it ;)
Thanks for reading,
