This is not my typical mortgage article but was important for me to write so I hope you like it!
As a self-employed entrepreneur and solo mortgage broker, it can get lonely and difficult in this business and having only been doing this for 3.5 years, I have had my days when I wanted to quit! I am sure I am not alone.
Last year was the best year I ever had and I was riding that wave until the new mortgage rules arrived in November of 2016. Where we as brokers were restricted by the new rules the government had initiated, I was hearing time and time again how the banks were not playing by the same rules.
When I started investing in real estate, I remember my coach saying to me “always start and end with your WHY. I didn’t know what my Why was when I started or why it even mattered, but as I gained more experience and started making passive income, I stopped to reflect on what my Why was and why it actually mattered.
Everyone has a different reason for getting into Real estate investing; for some they hate their job and want to pursue real estate investing to be able to quit their job; for others they love their job but just need a bit more month before the money runs out; and others just love real estate as a passion. However, no matter what the reason, they all start and end with their WHY!
