In Gary Keller’s book “The One Thing” he asks the following question: “What’s the ONE thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”
With regards to quitting your job with apartment building investing, that ONE THING is doing your first deal. And in this podcast episode, I interview Brooks Everline who is on track to quit his truck driving job with UPS in the next 6-12 months.
And if HE can do it, YOU can do it, too.
Brooks has a demanding, full-time job, and he had very little savings (though he had saved for years – smart!). He got started small, but he got started: he bought a vacant 4-plex in Hagerstown with a combination of some savings and a hard money loan, which he financed out in 6 months. He then bought a 5-plex with the re-fi money to bring up his monthly cash flow up to $1,800.
He needs another $2,000 per month to quit his job, and he says he'll be there in the next 6-12 months!
The power of apartment building investing to help you quit your job! An incredible journey, don't miss it this episode.
