Thankful for my Mentor

While it might seem like I have everything together, the truth of the matter is that I count on my mentor to help me grow beyond my current skillset.  You see, I have wanted to have a serious rental portfolio for years and there is a certain level of knowledge required to make that happen.  Since I realized that I didn’t have the required skillset on my own, I sought out someone in the local area that was an expert in rental properties.

I didn’t just work with the first person I met.  I decided to look at this much like you would look at a job interview, and therefore I had some questions for my possible mentors to find the right one that would meet my needs.  In fact, Mike, who is my current mentor, was the fourth person that I spoke with, and I think from the get-go we knew we would be a good fit.

I can still remember my first day working with him to try and find some replacement windows in Los Angeles for an apartment building he was renovating.  I made so many mistakes that first day, but somehow I was able to come out the other side of that task a little smarter.

I know that I have a long ways to go before I am any kind of real estate mogul, but I am so thankful that I can learn from one of the best in the industry right here by my home.  I am so thankful for my mentor.
