2 reasons to quit your 9-to-5 job and invest in real estate blog by Engelo RumoraMany people seek real estate investing for various reasons.

Here are the two major reasons that I’ve come to find why most people quit (or decide to replace) their day jobs with real estate investing:

Reason No 1: Because working for someone else… STINKS

“If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs” –Tony Gaskins

I used to be a laborer on construction sites. From sunup until sundown I’d be sweeping floors, loading dumpsters and clearing construction areas of any debris. I would get abused, bullied and even spit on by the other laborers.

I knew this was no life for me. I’d never truly be happy being “caged” into these 80-hour work weeks. I had goals and dreams to fullfill. I had a burning desire for MORE… and sweeping someone else’s floors wasn’t going to get me there.

Every morning I would see my boss stroll in dressed in his fitted Italian suits, and leave in his luxury car. I decided that I was tired of spending my time working 80 hours each week- assisting someone else with growing their goals and dreams.

I wanted to start working on my own! I’d always been intrigued by the freedom and possibilities of what real estate had to offer. And thus I began dedicating all of my free time to teaching myself every aspect of passive income and real estate investing.

Within a short amount of time, I developed my first real estate company called “From Sweeping Floors, To Owning Doors.” (haha, any guesses on how I came up with the name?)

Reason No. 2: FREEDOM to do what you want, when you want

Real estate investing and passive income offer true freedom. Freedom to choose your own hours. Freedom to achieve your dreams and reach your goals. The dreams you have for yourself and the goals set in place for your family ARE attainable through this. Retirement goals and future financial security are all in YOUR control and cannot be dictated by some HR department 500 miles away.

Real estate investing offers a freedom of unlimited potential for creating a lifestyle that is completely up to you and your own effort. Like most things, the market has ups and downs, but people will always need a place to live, whether they own the property or rent it out. You know you’ll have real “job security” because you can’t remove a basic need.

Conclusion: Just Do It

“Everything we want is on the other side of fear” –George Addair

Too often the risk of letting go and the fear of failure hinder great things.

Realistically, only a small percentage of people are able to get past their fear and pursue their dreams on their own.

Don’t let fear stop you from achieving your goals. Embrace the fear and JUST DO IT.

Opportunities in real estate have enabled me and my family so many great things. The very best thing is knowing that the dreams I live each day are a direct result of my work which no one person or company may ever take away.
