Quotables

 

“Pick one first and run with it, so before you diversify yourself into 4 or 5 income streams, make sure you’re good at one, that way you could pay the bills with that.”

 

“Businesses are either going up or going down. There’s not a plateau. There’s no steady state, that doesn’t exist.”

 

“Just go and take action. Go implement everything you’ve dreamed of – if you wanna be a real estate investor, go buy something. A piece of land, buy a mobile home, buy a trailer, buy a house, buy something, but go do it and don’t just stay in the planning stages.”
