We all reach a point of complacency. We tell ourselves that we’ve done enough, it’s too hard to go further, or we don’t have enough experience, money, or time to accomplish the goals that seem impossible. Brandon Turner, host of the BiggerPockets podcast, was feeling this way too, sitting on a decade worth of real estate, with enough passive income to live his life how he saw fit. It wasn’t until Brandon started surrounding himself with people who did much more than him that he realized he wasn’t hitting his true potential.
Now, leading the real estate syndication Open Door Capital, Brandon has more than 10x-ed his rental portfolio, built a life he loves in Maui, and worked with some of his heroes. This wasn’t by accident, it also wasn’t dropped into his lap. Brandon spent serious time thinking about his “vivid vision” of the future, what he wanted out of life, and who would help him get there.
He’s had ups and downs, with some of his favorite employees leaving, partnerships falling through, and deals being lost. All of these proved to be valuable lessons in his ongoing work to create a mobile home empire and become the best of the best at what he, and his team, does.
