The Real Estate Investing: Our Anchor
When my wife and I started our company C J Investiment 6 years ago, our goal was to make it easier for people to identify, develop and purchase a diverse portfolio of real estate assets effectively. That vision still drives us today. We may have started out as a one of property investment that inspired our children as well as other immigrants from Africa, particularly Zambia with the desire to invest in real estate, but C J Investiment has since evolved into a comprehensive real estate investment vehicle.
Today one of our daughters sent us the above photo with nice words inserted at the bottom expressing their gratitude to what they have observed over the years. They are proud to call us “parents” without shame or reservation!
We have stood a test of time despite financial pressure, stress from being overworked, the long journeys we have travelled and other circumstances beyond our control, our love and joy have remained intact.
Over the years, we’ve learned that effective financial education has changed on our pesrpective on a lot of investment-related matters. From the little income we managed to save for deposits to buy our first investment property in New Zealand.
This year we have managed to secure some apartments in Melbourne and Brisbane. Below is a snapshot of our team conducting a final inspection on two of the apartments for investment.
The achievement has been possible because of aligning ourselves with the right people, reading books, attending workshops and listening to podcasts. There are many prrograms that are consistently put up quality content:
- Best real estate Investing Advice Ever
- Apartment Building Investing
- Lifetime Cash Flow Through Real Estate Investing
- The Investor Mindset Podcast
My advise though is that before you spend time and money on coaching and mentorship — and especially before you invest in anything, I highly recommend that you spend 25-80hours listening to podcast and increase your level of education about what is available out there.
In today’s competitive world, networking is extremely important if you want to succeed. It is successful to acquire a post-graduate-level understanding or real estate by just dedicating yourself to education through the above resources. But to tell you the truth, knowledge alone will not take you far without strong, trust-based relationships. As the old saying goes, “Your network is your net worth” That was how I gained the courage and confidence to pursue a totally different path from my normal career of Nursing.
Here you can form partnerships, brainstorm, acquire quality teams and develop networking skills.
At its core, mentorship is about forming a connection; it shapes relationships, and, by extension, your ability to achieve your goals.
Every high performing real estate entrepreneur I know has at least one specific mentor who palyed and still plays a significant role in their success.
In ordeder to catapult your portfolio to an ultra-excerptional level, you unquestionable need at least one whom you can rely to guide you through challenging situation like Coronavirus that is paralysing companies and the economy. You can find the type of guidance in a text.
You should look for a mentor who are:
- Expert in their field
- Operating their business close to your ideal position in the industry
- Have an amazing personality that matches to yours, otherwise, your relationship won’t last.
- Are able to bring a tremendous amount of value to the table for example:
Processes and systems
Team members for outsourcing work
