Know what you’re good at and know your cycle of confidence and stay in it. Really know what you’re going to good at. You don’t need to be good at everything. Figure out something… and nail it.
When should you make the leap to full-time in your side business? It doesn’t matter what business it is, there’s a point when it makes more sense to leave your day job and go full-time into your passion.
Michael Rogers, a Carrot client and CPA of 12+ years walks through his journey on how he did his first deal, built an income producing portfolio while still working full-time, then how he slowly scaled back his hours at the CPA firm he was employed at and eventually dove in as a full-time real estate investor, just this past winter.
Now, Michael is still focused on building his portfolio for the long-term and doing wholesale deals for his active income. How did Michael do it? Listen in.
