Why We Do What We Do

What is your “why”? I know that question has become a cliché in the current culture, but that does not make it any less relevant. No matter what it is you did to get where you are now, and no matter what your future goals are, there has to be a reason you do it. What gives you drive? What makes you feel fulfilled? Maybe you want to create something great or advance a just cause. Maybe you want to leave generational wealth to your family and their family to come. Maybe you just like nice things and are willing to make smart choices to obtain them. That is the beauty of capitalism. You can work as hard as you want and make as much as you are willing to make. You have worked hard your whole life and you want your money to work as hard for you as you did to obtain it.

What is my “why”? Why do I find fulfillment in real estate investing? As I write this article, I am sitting on our balcony at the resort in Marathon, Florida, which is in the Florida Keys. My wife and four daughters are still sound asleep. I am looking out over the bay at the water with my laptop in front of me, getting work done while still being able to provide my family with great and lasting memories that will influence their perspective on life. That is a pretty good “why.” We try hard as a family not just to have vacations that provide pure entertainment but also provide experiences that help form perspectives on what the world is and how it works while forming family bonds that will last a lifetime. I am able to do this with my family while simultaneously working to continue to bring you great sound investments.

Right after I conclude this article, I have a conference call with our acquisitions team, Eric and Chris, to go over our current pipeline. Immediately after that call, we are swimming with the dolphins and later today we are taking a sunset jet-ski tour of Marathon. The reason I do what I do is that it provides flexibility in our lifestyle. I am first a husband, then a father, then friend, mentor, etc. Making passive income is a tool that is used to help me be more engaged in each of those roles.

But above and beyond that, the reason I do what I do is that I feel it is God’s will for my life. God has led me in each step of my life, even when I did not want His direction. At this point in my life, I realize that everything I have, I have been given by God, including my work ethic, intelligence, health and wellbeing, and personal connections. I feel that he did not bless me with all of this just so I could selfishly enjoy them myself. He gave them to me so that I could help others through acts of kindness and point them to Him.

Whether it is in multifamily, self-storage, or hard money lending, we always strive to provide investment opportunities to help you achieve your goals. I love what we do because it helps others have flexibility in their journey through this life.

We have an amazing team here at PassiveInvesting.com. Each person provides a vital part of the deal flow process. Each person loves what they do, and they are excited when we find those few conservative investment opportunities that make it through our strict vetting process and end up making their way to you, our investor. To date, only two percent of the total number of deals we have underwritten, called, and emailed brokers about, and toured have made it to you. That is only on the multifamily side and does not include our amazing team at Rehab Wallet and PIC Fund and our self-storage fund. All of that is just to get the opportunity to you. After that, we still need to manage the asset and make sure that the business plan is being achieved.

The reason that we do what we do is YOU. We all understand the value of a great real estate investment and the wealth it can build, and we want to share that ability to invest in institutional quality assets with you so that you can use it as a tool in your life journey.
