Okay this may seemed weird so follow me here. I see so many people talking about how they are trying to work themselves out of there job. To get passive income. First not sure how passive my real estate is, but its been good to me. You may really be working yourself into another job, but anyways. I work (and my wife says lives) for real estate, I treat it as a job (though I work for myself) and sometimes work long days. I was talking to a friend today and I told him how I couldnt wait to work myself back to a job. So let me explain.
I started as a contractor, and my wife and I love to rehab, but this business is soo much more than that (which we have done good at), but rehabbing doesn't make you wealthy,if you stop working so does your money. So I want to get to a point where I have staff to handle everything else and I go back to being the rehabber (on my own projects). Maybe I love this work to much but I have been blessed to enjoy what I do, so maybe I don't have a job, I just enjoy my hobby so much it pays for things for me.
I think all things should be done for a reason (we have ours), so just wondering what is everyone's thoughts, and am I crazy, or who is with me on this? It would really be a PT job as I still wish to do more volunteering work as well, and disaster relief work. Blessing in 2015 and May God Bless You With The Same Measure You Use To Bless Others?
@Jeremy Tillotson I agree with everything you said. I am not full time with RE but have a few rental properties in which I love the hunt to get more. I just did a complete rehab on one over the summer! Yes, very time consuming and sometimes stressful but I love it. Further on what you said, I have no problem working a job as long as I enjoy what I do. When I enjoy something I don't keep track of the hours involved. I am actually negotiating on buying into a company and that in itself will create a job for me but I am excited to create that job as I like the company and what they do. I'd go crazy not working.
