And, it’s kind of how I played it and people respect that. You know I got a lot of “I what to help a young guy make it.” You know I think people root for that to, the bug. It’s bad in one sense but you can use it to your advantage.
Tim Oppelt, from Opp Real Estate, has endured a lot. He’s worked one of the “worst” jobs possible, been laid off, and made some investing errors. But, he’s a big believer in trying to do what you love and creating a new path for other people. With that… He’s beginning to crush it!
He wants to change some of the negative perceptions about entrepreneurs, into a perception that maybe you can do what you want to do in life and have success because you love doing it.
