    Quotes:


    “Real Estate is something that I can do myself, I don’t need anybody else and I don’t need to go to school, all I need to do is learn different strategies. And this is something I can create for myself and my future family.” Trevor West 7:48 - 8:03

    “There are three ways that we can use our time. We can either spend it, share it or we can invest it just like money.” 10:29 - 10:35

    “If you just take a moment of silence, you might uncover something truly spectacular about yourself because we all have it within us to reach levels of success that we never thought possible for ourselves.” 19:03 - 19:14

Appropriate for so many

The guests are generally military affiliated but it is still GREAT information for anyone. It really speaks to people who are just everyday people doing extraordinary things little by little that add up over time. Highly recommend.
