What prevents you from living your life to the fullest?
Your Financial Freedom Is Worth Pursuing
When you’re on a plane, you’re told to put the oxygen mask on yourself first before helping someone else with theirs.
Because if you’re not getting any oxygen yourself, it’s very difficult to help someone else. You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of others.
It’s the same thing with financial freedom.
In his book Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance, Bob Buford suggests that we tend to strive towards success in the first half of our lives. During this part of our lives, most of us are primarily focused on ourselves, our families, and our careers. We tend to be self-focused during this period and are often trying to achieve whatever we define as “success” in our personal and professional lives.
He says the biggest mistake most of us make in the first half is not taking enough time for the things that are really important to us. He urges us to reflect on our lives and figure out our purpose so that we can live a life of significance, which involves using our knowledge and experience to change the lives of others.
The elephant in the room that Buford never addresses in his book is how to make such a life of significance a reality – in practical terms.
He ignores the every-day reality for most people, which involves getting up early in the morning and going to work and then spending the next 10 hours of their full attention working for someone else.
They come home exhausted, help with dinner and maybe put the kids to bed, finish up some work, then crash in front of the TV, only to repeat the whole process the next day.
On the weekends, they catch up on chores, attend their kids’ events, and maybe watch a ball game. Then the cycle repeats Monday morning.
There is no time for significance.
I was financially free twice in my life: once after the IPO of a software company, and again with my restaurants for a short period of time.
I started to talk with the people around me about SIGNIFICANCE and PURPOSE and they’re like, “what are you talking about? … I work 50+ hours a week, I have no time to think about these things!”
So how is it possible to “live a life of significance” when you don’t have the time?
And if you stopped working to “live into your purpose,” how would you be able to provide for your family?
It’s an impossible problem to solve and therefore you never even attempt to solve it. As a result, you never discover your purpose, never live life to the fullest and leave this earth with regrets.
I have a theory, and it’s this: your job prevents you from living life to the fullest.
You work because you have to provide for your family. But that job consumes the vast majority of your waking hours, leaving no time for anything else.
The ONE Thing that solves this problem is financial freedom.
And That’s The Real Reason I Do What I Do.
The real reason I help people become financially free is because I believe it is a necessary step to empower people to live a mission-driven life.
I can make a difference in this world by helping you make a difference.
I can do that by helping you become financially free with multifamily syndications because I know that financial freedom puts you on the path to becoming a Difference Maker – someone who makes a difference in other people’s lives.
Our Deal Maker Blueprint is our proven 8-step system to becoming financially free with multifamily investing in the next 1-3 years. The first 7 steps take you from where you are right now, to doing your first deal, to becoming financially and scaling your business.
But there’s an EIGHTH step called “Make a Difference”.
Financial freedom is a means to an end, not the end itself.
That’s why the Deal Maker Blueprint didn’t end with Step # 7 “Grow and Scale” because financial freedom is not the end, it’s the beginning of the rest of your life.
