3 Things My 5-Year-Old Taught Me About Real Estate Investing

My 5-year-old son Will just learned how to ride a bike.

He was scared at first.

He would put one foot on just one pedal and push himself forward a few inches.

That was all he wanted to do.

Then he started getting the full “pedaling” motion down, but only for a few seconds.

Then he started learning to balance.

I was outside with him every afternoon practicing this stuff.

We would do 15-minute practice sessions, then we’d hit the playground.

And for a few days, that was all it was…

Small, gradual progress.

Then one morning, a week or so ago, he woke up and said “Daddy, I had a dream last night that I was riding my bike by myself.”

I said, “If you think you can do it, you can do it.”

He couldn’t wait to get outside with his bike.

And that day, something awesome happened…

He pedaled the full length of our driveway on his own.

When he got to the fence, he jumped off and ran to me and said “Daddy, my dream came true!”

It was an incredible moment.

But what does any of this have to do with real estate investing?

Glad you asked…

I learned a few powerful lessons watching Will master his bike.

And I want to share them with you…
