You learn something new and gain a sense of satisfaction after every single real estate investment or deal. Recent surveys point out that about 75% of the workforce hates the work they are doing. I sometimes wonder, whether they needed a survey to find that out. That is a fact that can be easily inferred by careful observation. The survey at best fixes the percentage.
Why don’t we love our jobs?
We hate the commute, the demanding routine, the demeaning behavior of our superiors and the backstabbing and sometimes bitter politics that takes place in an office. Worst of all, we hate that the work that we do, is capped at a fixed salary and largely goes unappreciated. A job can be dehumanizing as it labels our worth. It may put us into a straitjacket, limiting our creativity and clipping our wings. Little wonder that many of us who are bound to a job may be loathe making a greater contribution than we are capable. Even after spending a number of frustrating years with a status of full time employed, many of us may simply not be able to stomach the change to a self-employed status. We are so used to the perks, the privileges and the security that a full time job provides us, that we can’t begin to think of the uncertainty and risk of entrepreneurship.
Who says that you have to leave your job and start working on your own, overnight?
You can work at it silently without much fanfare and on a part time basis. Contrary to popular perception, you don’t require a large sum as seed capital to begin with. Most successful business stories are from rags (well almost) to riches. Costly seminars on property investing with $ 3000 admission fees are a method of making money, peripheral to real estate investing.
You can start working on real estate deal without ever having to walk into a bank for a loan or entering into a mortgage agreement. However, if you do require credit, it is very easily available. Today is perhaps the easiest time to avail of credit. Think about it for a moment. Real estate investing as a career option has the potential of teaching you about business, life and making money. It provides you with a sense of satisfaction and gives you tremendous self-confidence besides having the potential of making you financially independent and successful.
