Andrew Elio is a 22-year-old recent college graduate, but he already knows that he doesn’t want to work for someone else the rest of his life.

That’s what motivated him to join our Deal Maker Certification program a month ago. At the same time, he started working a full-time job.

How is Andrew juggling both responsibilities? What’s he struggling with? What progress has he made so far?

And what’s the most important thing Andrew can do to accelerate his success?

On this edition of Business Boost with Michael Blank, Andrew shares his anxiety around talking to brokers, and we discuss the role of practice in building confidence.

Andrew describes how he got into the habit of taking consistent action every day, and I discuss the benefits of networking with the Deal Maker Mastermind community.

Listen in as I address Andrew’s questions about what a loan covers (and what it doesn’t) and offer advice on finding an experienced mentor to fast-track his journey to financial freedom!
