Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s get real.
“Get-rich-quick” ideas are known as ‘schemes’ for a good reason. You can not get to where you want to be in life by simply poofing yourself there. As you go forward with whatever venture you have planned, be that note brokering, note investment, property rentals, anything, keep in mind that if you want something stable you have to start from the foundation.
There are a hundred and one metaphors I could use, but let’s go with one that I know inside and out – houses.
You could have the most ornate, classy, well-to-do houses out there. If the foundation sucks then guess what: your beautiful home won’t last very long. It doesn’t matter that you’ve got a Lamborghini in the driveway, a Monet in the living room, marble countertops from the Vatican. That house will come down, and it’ll take you down with it.
What you can do to prevent this is put that leg work in right from the beginning. Learn as much as you can, talk to as many people as you can. Take your money seriously by taking yourself seriously. Check out this amazing quote that says all you need to know about getting rich quick.
When it comes to note investing the thing you can do to create a solid foundation is your due diligence. I speak about this often because it truly is so essential. Not only does it have to be done but you have to do the work well and thoroughly. More and more I’m seeing people who are so sure of themselves and the work they’ve done, but then I have to go back through and re-check all of their work because it wasn’t done right the first time. That’s wasted time for us both. That’s some big-shot who is rushing through their documents, not paying attention and making things worse for everyone around them.
In short, in case you skimmed the past few paragraphs, there is no scheme here to get rich quick. That being said, hard work now will pay off!
