I quit my job yesterday

3 Replies

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. 

I've been a real estate investor since 2014, working full time at my W2 and investing part time. It's been a struggle, a challenge, a never ending web of confusion. But yesterday, I put in my notice and today I've never felt better. I have years worth of savings in the bank, credit lines, relationships with hard money lenders and deals in the pipeline. 

The decision wasn't easy, I'd be lying to you if I said that I'm a little freaked out. I have a nice home, two little ones and a beautiful wife who's incredibly supportive. But my heart isn't there, I think/talk only about real estate. It's time to make a move. 

To all those at @BiggerPockets ; Thanks! Without this podcast I'd be sitting behind a desk of misery for who knows how long.

Congratulations brother!

As someone who is still on the wrong side of the "grind", you story is an inspiration. Don't be discouraged or nervous, you have a entire network of supporters and people willing to help you out. Its amazing that you have only been investing for 4 years.. Shove that in the face of people who say you cant get rich quick in Real Estate.

That's one of the main goals for a lot of RE investors.

@Matt Honeyford Congratulations Sir ! Hope you get amazing success in your business.
