The man I began introducing you to in part one of this segment is millionaire-motivator, Kenneth Brown. Ken is a young man of humble Chicago beginnings that starkly contrast his ultimate success in business and in life. Ken is the son of teenaged parents who were basically poverty stricken. Ken’s childhood is a seemingly typical story of how a young Black boy is brought into dire circumstances socially, economically and environmentally.
Ken is the owner of a successful McDonald's franchise in the Metro-Detroit area. He wrote a book that I’ve read so many times that I can almost recite it better than he can. The book is called “A Leap of Faith.” This book chronicles Ken Brown's journey from Welfare to Faring Well by documenting how he became a multimillionaire by the age of 38. The way was not easy for Ken. In his journey he had hurdles called evictions. In his journey he had roadblocks such as when he was let go from his first job, but Ken states that it is all a part of the process.
Listen, success is not about the fact that you will fall down. Success is about how you get up after a fall. It’s about overcoming whatever attempts to get in your way. What roadblocks are you willing to overcome? What hurdles are you willing to leap to make it in this game we call life?
As with any business, commercial real estate investment has its set of problems, but successful entrepreneurs are great at turning problems into short-term obstacles that lead to inspiring and motivational stories of success and triumph over obstacles. Most successful entrepreneurs never get to tell their stories. They usually live vicariously through someone else. “Man, if I could only do what he or she did,” they often think. They can. You can if you want it bad enough.
My goal was to become a successful real estate investor. Well, I have had my share of roadblocks. My roadblocks came in the form of tenants who for various reasons and colorful excuses could not or would not pay their rent. I experienced hurdles such as buildings catching on fire and losing deals. In the end, however, it has all paid off.
I am now a better real estate investor than ever. Today I am a highly successful real estate trainer and a widely sought after consultant. I have taught classes at the Big Three through their ETAP programs. I have also mentored thousands of clients in order to help them purchase their first home. I have helped thousands more to invest in their first investment property. I am currently educating individuals on how to really become free through www.ThePowerToBeFree.com.
How have I achieved such phenomenal success? I have done it largely through the wonderful world of commercial real estate investment with a concentration on residential apartment building investment. There was a commercial out that use to say that you can't eat just one Lay’s potato chip, but in the world of commercial real estate all you need is one big deal and your family is set.
You are set! Commercial real estate investing is a process that has taken me over 12 years to learn. Fortunately, you have the benefit of all of my mistakes, my obstacles, and hurdles. You can learn from everything that I have had to overcome during my journey to become a successful commercial real estate investor, trainer, and mentor. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired you need to give me a call immediately. Let's take you and your family to the next level.
