Entrepreneuers

You’re Either In or You’re Out

Gino Barbaro* has a compelling list of reasons real estate investors fail.  When I discovered there was an actual list, I was ready to spend time reading through them and tearing them apart.  How pleasantly surprised I was to find that it was a simple list.  It’s a list that hits home for many real estate investors.

According to Barbaro, the reasons include

  1. Not enough reasons to invest in real estate

  2. No focus

  3. No plan

  4. Lack of Education

  5. Quitting too soon

  6. Not enough capital

  7. Careless due diligence

These reasons don’t have to apply just to real estate investors. Change #1 to “not enough reasons to be in this business” and the rest are universal.

I have often said if you don’t have time to plan your work and then work that plan then you need to reconsider your career choice. Don’t make your dreams mere hobbies – spending time only when you feel like it or just a few hours every now and then.

Lori Greiner has said, “entrepreneurs are the only people who will work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week”.  She’s right on point!

You have a choice.  Get out or get in.  You are either fully in and committed to your success or you’re out.
