“What do we really want as the outcome? Not what's the input, but what's the outcome? And then how do we start working back from that?”
John grew up in a family where his father was working so much that he wasn’t around most of the time. Therefore, John’s goal was always to be more present in his children’s lives.
He started his career in personal training and coaching in club baseball, but he didn't have the free time that he wanted, so he transitioned to sales. He started to make a lot of money, but he still wasn’t satisfied with his journey. Eventually, John decided to start real estate investing so he could achieve financial freedom and have enough time with his family.
