The Truth Behind Every Success...

Here’s what you often don’t see behind almost every success story out there, and I’m sure these are things we all go through. These are a few of the struggles along the way from my perspective

1. The loneliness. When I first started selling real estate and working as a real estate agent, everyone was significantly older than me - and being in an office full of middle-aged people made it extremely difficult for me to relate to friend my own age. That, combined with my work schedule and different interests, made it really difficult to make friends my own age. It wasn’t easy building friendships outside of school and took a lot of time to cultivate these relationships. 2. The random things I’d give up along the way. College could have been one of them - no regrets, but I definitely wonder what it would have been like to go. But even smaller things, like investing becoming a priority, diligently saving, delayed gratification - all of this came up from time to time. 3. The stress. I’m incredibly invested in every one of my deals and don’t want to let anyone down. There’s definitely the uncertainty that I might not live up to someone’s expectations and that takes a toll. 4. The doubt. Even though I can look at anyone’s real estate deal objectively without a problem, when it comes to myself, I doubt it - just the nature of the game. So it’s definitely not easy for me to figure out which decision is best. 5. The uncertainty. I don’t know all the answers and I do my best to make the decision I believe is the best at the time, given the situation. I’m sure I’m not always right and I have no idea until after the fact. If I’m not the only one who’s felt like this, comment below and let me know - I read them all! :) For business or one-on-one real estate investing/real estate agent consulting inquiries, you can reach me at
