"Growing up everyone had those goals that seemed a little too good to be true, I myself was one of those people. I always wanted to be something that was the gold standard of jobs, the 1% that got to enjoy something no one else would get the chance to. As I grew though, I slowly came to the realization that reality and non-realistic goals don't coincide well. So I always kept a level head working towards goals I know are reachable for me. At 20 years old I set a path of goals that I plan to reach in the next 10 years. These goals are nothing less than fancy, and aren't goals some will think are big enough, but they get me out of bed every day, make me put my thinking hat on, and give me the power I need to continue down the road and be where I see myself in the next 6 years.
I started 10-year year goal at the bottom, fresh out of school, wondering what was next. I always knew I wanted to be wealthy enough to comfortably raise a family, have a nice home over their head, food in the pantry and a nice vehicle to get them to sporting events. I never went to college, I didn't have the best grades and definitely didn't have the motivation when I was a young and dumb teenager. I grew to fall in love with real estate roughly 2 years ago. I knew working hand in hand with investors, I wanted to be where they were. I checked one of my first goals off the list by going out on a limb and selling myself to a small company of real estate investors. This almost 2 years ago was the gun being shot at the start of the race. I learn more and more every single day while being given the opportunities to see firsthand how real estate works as a whole.
With that being said my next goal, which leads into the next 6 years till I'm 30 years old is, to start buying properties. I want to break the stigma that most first-time home buyers are above the age of 30. I want to own a handful of duplexes, create passive income and learn how to be a good landlord. I want to build equity and continue my knowledge of properties and real estate as a whole. I think these goals are realistic, I am working my butt off every day in preparation for my first property. With the help of my bosses along the way, I'm almost able to check another goal off the list.
For what comes after my 10 years goal, honestly.... I'm not sure. At age 30 I'll make another 10-year goal list and start working towards that. I feel more than confident that if I keep my head up and work hard I will make it down the road to my destination. I want to also thank my amazing cousin Rachel, she's a real go-getter and shows me that it can all be done by pure determination. I know I can always shoot ideas and questions off her without the fear of sounding dumb. Goals are different for everyone, and I know mine. Now it's time to make them a reality."
