Quotable Quotes

  • Life is too short to make all the mistakes yourself. It’s always a good idea to find people who have been through it.
  • The interesting thing about doing business and investing in real estate is that if you’re doing it, you’re gonna lose money. And if somebody says “I’ve been doing this for 5-10 years” and they say they’ve never lost a dime, either they didn’t do much or they’re lying.
  • Having more money is just more, it’s not better, it’s just more. There’s more to life than just a bigger balance sheet.
  • The focus that I have now is not having more money. Becoming a billionaire for me is a billion lives that I’ve served. 
  • Most people’s wealth is in their retirement accounts and their  house. You can’t eat the equity in your house.
