Hi Everyone. Just joined the forum. I bought the Audiobook about 2 years ago and while listening to this and some other inspirational/Entrepreneurial podcasts, i decided last year February to leave my job of 6 years in Operations for a manufacturing company and pursue property. I knew a friend that is in industrial/commercial property which seemed better as our residential market is saturated with brokers. I was excited and learnt a lot in the first few months but around October last year i had only signed one small deal. To top it off i was diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure. It was borderline over limit but enough to be put on medication. o, did i mention i have a wife and 3 kids to look after so i have been under a huge amount of pressure to look after my family. I have been pushing on as our economy was not great last year - i guess i chose the wrong year to change career. This year is looking better as a lot of leads are coming in. This however, does not put food on the table. I struggle every day - argue with myself in my head, have i done the right thing, will things get better, what i give up now and freedom is one phone call away, i need to look after my family, how selfish am i to have put them through this, i can do this because a better life awaits, i want to retire in 5 years. After my arguments with myself, i pluck up the courage and i embrace what the day will bring and tell myself today will be a great day. It is difficult though to concentrate on work when i dont know what we are eating tonight. Anyway, great to be here!!
