If you were to ask me 10 years ago where I would see myself today, I never would have guessed co-owner in a real estate investment firm, working from home and a mortgage agent. Back then, 10 years ago life was simple working in the corporate world of work-pay, work-pay. Yes the concept of consistent pay was attractive, the only problem was there was no balance for work and home. I came across a business philosopher named Jim Rohn. There were 2 important lessons he taught me. The first one was: “The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.” The second one, “Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better.” These philosophies allowed me to leave the corporate world and essentially opened my mind to a broader spectrum of creative entrepreneurial opportunity. I became my own boss.

Being able to design a lifestyle of your choice is not an easy feat however, it’s attainable as long as you have passion and know what your why is.
