I'm former military, to auto tech, to pool builder, then retail sales, and finally an independent distributor with corporate benefits. This means I run my own schedule and build business the way I see fit and have the benefit of having a company financially back me. I love what I do now and have a great family to enjoy my life with.
You would think this should be enough but I feel deep in my gut that I have more to acheive in this world and feel real estate might be the thing that opens the gate to pure financial freedom.
I understand what it is like to be independent in sales and in life, and how hard it is to put yourself in this position when you have had the comfort of others telling you what to do your whole life. I caught a break when I found a company that believed in me and gave me the time I needed to create my own stile of doing business. It took me a few years and many mistakes but looking back now I wouldn't have it any other way.
I have now been doing independent sales for 5 years and think it is time to add some real estate to my portfolio.
