I get the question all the time…

“Billy, how in the heck are you doing this real estate investing thing when you’re working a full-time job?!”

All I can say is that it is totally possible.

Here’s how it works for me…

You CAN Have It All… If You Are Willing To Work For It…

Notice that I didn’t say you can have it all “easily.” That would be a big lie. The truth is that you have to stop thinking in either-or terms. Then you can have it all, but you will have to build toward it.

For example, you might have a corporate job. That likely means you get up early every morning to get ready and then get to the job. You pour your time, attention and energies into performing the functions of that job while you’re there.

When you finally get home at night, if you get there on time, you can enjoy that time with your loved ones at the dinner table and then you head to the nearest flat screen to watch your favorite shows.

That’s where you and entrepreneurs differ.

You see, when you want to achieve a goal… like becoming a real estate entrepreneur and investoryou are going to have to sacrifice that down time to in a way perform another job. If you are working toward a goal of replacing the income you earn in your day job, well, that means you get to work at night on the tasks that help you get there instead of watching TV, going out with friends or taking on a hobby.

Sometimes it’s not going to be fun, but you are WORKING toward a goal. Otherwise they’d call it “playing” toward your goals, and that isn’t the way it should be. I’m not saying you won’t have fun getting to your goals. If you don’t have a passion for what you’re doing, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it.

So… What’s Your Passion?

My passion is real estate investing, but I’m also really good at my day job. In fact, I have a dual passion, because I love the work I do outside real estate. That’s not to say my focus is there once I leave the office at night. That’s when the big shift in my mindset takes place.

Actually, the shift happened over time; now it’s more a matter of compartmentalizing my passions and the duties around the two sides of my life.

When I’m on the job in a leadership role at my company (i.e., my day job), my focus is there. When I’m home at night I have to split my focus… first on my wife and kids, but then on growing my real estate investing business. Because that’s what it is… a business!!

Because I live in Barcelona I am fortunate to get paid vacation time off a few times a year that I get to spend with my family. We travel and do fun things. But believe me when I say that I am always working on my real estate business, even when on vacation. To a certain point, even while I’m working the 9-to-5, because a lot of co-workers and associates lately have been telling me that they are following my activities, watching my videos and reading my articles. That means we get to talk about my passion for real estate investing on our breaks and at lunches.

If they’re truly interested in learning how to do what I am currently doing, which is long distance investing in multifamily properties in the United States, we can get together after work to discuss. I’m always up for answering questions and educating anyone who will listen about the benefits of investing in real estate either actively or passively.

If that’s something you would like to learn more about, I’m here for you. I remember what it was like when I first started thinking about getting involved in real estate investing. I had a lot of questions. I found a mentor and started networking with likeminded individuals who shared my burgeoning passion. Now I have moved up the ladder, I know my stuff, I’ve made plenty of mistakes that I can help you avoid, I have a few units of property and I’m working a bigger deal now. So… if you want to learn from me, that’s great. If you want to work with me in one of my deals, that’s great, too. I’m all ears!!
