    RG 320 - Finding the Balance Between Your Day Job and Your Business – w/ Andrew Schutsky

    In business, rewards are not immediate. It takes time to find your groove while starting a business from scratch. Fellow entrepreneur and podcaster Andrew Schutsky is here to tell us his secret sauce to building a business while working a day job.

    Andrew Schutsky is the founder of Redline Equity, a real estate investment firm providing passive investment opportunities to busy professionals; the CIO of TE Connectivity, a $700 million medical technology company, and the host of the Crushing Cashflow podcast.

    Andrew found out early on much opportunity there is in real estate. Like most entrepreneurs, he started his real estate journey working through limitations before he found strategies that worked for him.

    In today’s interview, we talk about finding the balance between your day job and business, how to prioritize while starting from scratch, the importance of understanding what niche you are in, and a whole lot more.

    Building a business from the ground up is not easy, nor is it quick. If you’re struggling to prioritize, remain consistent, or find where you belong on the wheel, tune into this episode to learn how you can overcome these problems.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    1. You don’t control your own destiny, and you don’t know if your outlook will change—why not plant some seeds now?
    2. You can’t avoid the struggles and limitations you will go through at the start.
    3. Building consistency is the key to finding the perfect balance between your day job and business.
    4. Starting your business from scratch takes time; rewards are not immediate.
    5. Don’t lose sight of what you’re working so hard for; take breaks, then refocus.
    6. A support structure is essential in handling a business while taking care of your family.
