In Episode 046, Jack interviewed Mr. Abhi Golhar who is a successful investor in single-family developments and multi-family apartment complexes. He has also been able to build several successful businesses from the ground up. Now, Abhi enjoys talking about entrepreneurship and real estate investing on YouTube, his blog, and as the Host of Think Realty Radio, a nationally syndicated radio show on The Wall Street Radio Network. In this interview, Abhi will share how he becomes an entrepreneur and a real estate investor and the lessons he can share with other business owners and entrepreneurs.
This is how Abhi embarked on his entrepreneurship journey
"After I graduated, I had a bunch of job offers and I didn't take any of them. I just said I'm not going to do it. And they were really good job offers everything on the west coast from all the big names that you can imagine. Even from a couple of consulting companies and I just didn't want to do it and that could have been maybe my personality that could have been I saw something in my future and I didn't really know what it was at the time and I wanted to take a chance on myself and the even though I still invest in business and real estate today, I'll tell you something - I'm really passionate about startups. I love investing in businesses, turning businesses around and getting more into the mindset of why we should even start a business to begin with. And so listening to podcasts like yours and just seeing your, your success and your growth is super cool."
Lesson 1: What you tell yourself in the morning:
"Every morning I wake up, I go for a run, I meditate, I write in my journal and it is totally empowering for me. That is my golden time. I work here. I'll wake up generally between 4:30 and 5:00 in the morning and I hit it. You know I like to workout. I like to talk to myself and I say awesome things like, holy cow, I'm so excited to be alive. It's amazing. I can't wait to help somebody else. I'm taking advantage of opportunity, but I'm also creating impact and I think the other part of it is recognizing what's actually happening. So if you, if you're growing a garden, let's say you have tomatoes in your garden, you have mint, you have mangoes in your garden, and you realize that there are weeds, some weeds in your garden."
Lesson 2: I don't care what you think!
"I don't give a shit like what you think. What I want you to do is to keep your opinions about what I'm doing to yourself because I didn't ask you for your opinion. If you have something, if you have something positive to say, then let's talk about it. If you don't have anything positive to say, then you can talk amongst. Yeah, you can talk amongst yourselves. You can talk behind my back. I don't care. I don't need to hear it because I'm gunning for something awesome. And the moment that people realize that though, he's actually serious about doing his stuff, then they'll lay off. But you'd have to get serious about you first. You have to believe in yourself and you have to understand that you're worth it."
Lesson 3: How to bring success in our entrepreneurship journey -
"I would say watch what you're putting in your mind. Learn, pay attention to the right podcasts like yours to really get out there and say, what can I do to learn a network? And that's more so for your mindset.
The second thing is network. Go to local meetup groups. See who else is in the community, learned from these people. Find a mentor there. If you're listening and you think to yourself, you know, hey, I want to be a successful entrepreneur one day or a small business owner and the and my favorite business that I want to run as a restaurant. Well Great. Go to a restaurant that's your favorite restaurant and speak with the owners, speak with the chef, learned from the get go".
