One of my favorite teaching moments was telling a group of young entrepreneurs that I loved being in a business where I could study 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and never know it all. They were horrified, but it’s the truth: you can’t learn everything about real estate in an instant. There’s just too much.
I love this business because I’m always learning, even at my age. Some people aren’t that interested in learning more than the basics, and that will only limit you in the long run. It’s just like school: if you only learn to add and never learn to read, you’ll be pretty limited in what you can do with your life. Think about craftsmen, doctors, attorneys, CPAs, teachers, and professors: they all need specialized education.
Would you go to a doctor who had never been to medical school? Of course not!
Would you go to an attorney who couldn’t handle a major case? Nope!
What about a CPA who had no experience with the tax code? Never!
Just like these professionals, as a real estate investor, you need specialized training and education from people who have already made mistakes. There’s no reason to reinvent the wheel, as long as you know how to make one that works.
