I mean, if you think about it, it’s not, it’s all about how quickly you get up. You know? That’s the relentlessness and the relentless pursuit of your dreams and how quickly you get back up is what everything’s about. And that’s what makes for an entrepreneur that can never be stopped.
You know, once you learn how to make money and you find that niche and you’re in alignment, you’re totally good to go. So in that situation, finding the positive, that’s what I have to do. And that’s when, in this particular part of the journey where I set up this thing.
I was a realtor. Being a realtor at the time, that is just, I literally, to put it into perspective, I moved across the country to work on a lending project. Moved my girlfriend at the time out there with me. And everything was supposed to be good. A huge opportunity. I was going to partner with this guy, like, one of my best buds in the business.
Get to San Diego. I was going to become partner in the business and own this thing with him. And literally, two weeks after I get there, the friggin’ meltdown happened to the economy and everything tanks. You know? It just, the rug got pulled out from under us. And it turned into a disaster.
