3 Key Points:

  1. We create our own personal prisons as we’ve felt stuck and have felt like we aren’t where we’re supposed to be. You’re not stuck but rather need clarity of what your goals are.
  2. We tend to think that we got it all figured out, but having a coach to mentor you will actually help you get the support and push you never thought you needed.
  3. Instead of borrowing money from a bank to buy properties, you can use seller financing since. In addition to keeping your money, you can obtain additional benefits.
