Key Takeaways:

“Build your business around that goal that you have for your life, and then do what matters. Make your business work. Don’t make the other way around where the business controls everything you do with your life.” – Chad Carson

“I think the consistent thread for me is just authentic with your sellers, and with your private lenders. Have the humility to say, “I don’t know everything.” Take that attitude of “I don’t have it all figured out; here’s what I do know.” I think people see that as being real, as opposed to always saying, “I’m the best.” – Chad Carson

“Fake it before you make it. That’s the lesson you’re taught as an investor.”– Chad Carson

“It’s interesting because every time you leave or every time you change or every time that market changes, you have to act like a beginner again. And I think as long as all of us, no matter how much experience we have are willing to reevaluate what worked before because it might not work next year. And that’s a pretty good approach to business in general.”– Chad Carson

“I think the biggest mistake is just window shopping. Find some strategy. You’re listening to a podcast. You’re reading a book. Take that piece of information. If I do something this month, I go out, and apply it.” – Chad Carson

“Don’t worry about being perfect. Don’t worry about being the best right now. Just be a beginner. Make some mistakes. Don’t make the biggest mistakes. Don’t go here and do something that’s going to make you bankrupt, but make some mistakes.” – Chad Carson
