I’m on a mini road trip out of Nashville which, by the way, is one of my absolute favorite cities. I don’t know how well this videoing is going to work since I’m holding since I’m holding my phone in the car. But I was driving and pondering life…actually, I wasn’t pondering life but I am reading this really cool book I don’t know if you’ll be able to see it. It’s called Different: Escaping the Competitive Herd, by Youngme Moon. I’m only about a paragraph and a half in, but the first paragraph was so amazing. I could even think about how it relates to real estate. It was basically talking about how everyone is always told that you should strengthen your weaknesses. But, instead, the idea is strengthening your strengths. I was thinking about this in terms of real estate. There are so many people who swear that even if you don’t want to be a landlord you should be a landlord for a little while, and learn how to fix things, and manage a property, and do all that. I absolutely hands-down disagree with that. I have no desire to be a landlord. I don’t want to manage properties. I want to be a real estate investor. I want it to be passive, and if I’m managing a property it’s not passive. It’s work. I don’t want to do work. I could care less how to fix a toilet. I could care less about lifting a hammer. As a real estate investor who doesn’t want to do any of those things, I don’t think that I should have to do any of that. What I need to get good at is managing my team who does those things. It all ties back into: my weakness is lifting a hammer and fixing a toilet. Most people would say that I should strengthen that weakness, but I don’t agree. My strength is managing teams, so why not work on that instead and let somebody else lift the hammer? That’s my thought for the day.
