Day 3393 – What Real Estate Investing Has Taught Me So Far

It has been quite an adventure, building another business with Bret. We had such a blast working together photographing weddings, but I really didn’t think we’d have another business.

It wasn’t long after Bret started his business that I started to help him with his business. A few months later, we realized the power of embracing it as OUR business and it has truly made a big difference.

I also never saw either of us doing work like this. I always envisioned myself doing creative work, with lots of media. And yet, I keep coming back to administrative work and really thriving. You should see the epically complex spreadsheets and reports I have for our business.

It has been quite the journey so far and it’s only getting better. I wanted to share a few things I’ve learned so far.

– Sometimes you’ll have to do work on vacation.

– Sometimes you’ll have to drop everything to do what needs to be done.

– Sometimes you’ll expect things to go one way, and they go a completely different way.

– Sometimes something you fear the most, will lead to great things (and great income).

– You’ll get comfortable with uncomfortable things.

– You will make mistakes and you will lose money.

– You will have so much fun working with your spouse.

I can’t wait to see where this takes us. It’s already been such an awesome ride so far. 🙂
