I hope you are sitting down. In case you haven't heard through the REI grapevine, Real-Estate-Investing.com has relocated its business and social headquarters to Phuket, Thailand.
If there's one word
that describes this place better than most, it would have to be MAGICAL.
My wife, little Matteo and I are here for six months. That did not happen by accident. This took careful planning and most of all the ability to walk away from our life in Bogota (I know, not so ordinary in and of itself) and fly 21 hours to Bangkok and then on to Phuket.
I rallied the troops to start out the trip with me and things got a little nuts.
Left to right is Colin Egbert of RealEstateInvestor.com, Arturo the 5th (aka The Matador) whose family owns the European version of NetJets, Myself and Josh Perez, our REO and foreclosure insider at Fannie Mae.
Friends being able to join you reminds you of the choices you have made in life. Money, to me means Options. But not so much the amount of money but the type of money.
Over 26 close friends and probably another 50 colleagues were informed about the trip and urged to come join us. Out of all those invites, only 2 could make it.
Now an insecure person might take that personally but COME ON, we're talking about Thailand. This isn't asking for help moving your apartment or troubleshooting a plumbing issue.
Just about everyone I know has Southeast Asia on their goal list somewhere, with a loose time frame in mind called, "someday". Truth is, 90% of those people will never realize that dream. They will carry it to the grave with them. I know that's tough talk but we're talking about changing your entire life here, we really are. Besides, if you are reading this, you are a doer. Why else are you reading about real estate investing on the internet.
So now that we have established that you are a doer, the question I want to throw out to you guys is "when is someday"? Can you see it in your future? When are you going to have the income, the stability, the curiosity and the guts to come join me.
We would love to have you here. We have a Thailand dance that I made up that I'd LOVE to teach you. After you have been here for just 4 or 5 days you will completely understand it in about 30 seconds.
Just the other day my cousin was telling me, for a guy with no job you seem to live a pretty amazing life. You should write a book. To which I told him, I DID, DON'T YOU REMEMBER!
He says Oh yeah, that's right. You did. What was that link again. To which I heavily sighed, Ummm...it's MattGerchow.com
That's where you can pick up a copy of my "how to run it from anywhere" book that's an "real estate investor" version of the Four Hour Workweek. If you are ready for the lifestyle and ready for everything about your life to change for the positive, keep reading.
This is so much more than real estate investing. This is a way of life and a way of thinking. BECOME GEOGRAPHICALLY INDEPENDENT
. You are no longer tied to any location in the world. No longer tied to your desk, your laptop, your car, city, state or boring stay in the same place life.
Happiness is the opposite of boredom or better stated, BOREDOM IS THE OPPOSITE OF HAPPINESS
If you are ready to end boredom forever, it's probably time to get you moving in the right direction. Grab a copy of the book that started it all. Click to END Boredom Forever
Learn to live the life without borders. Keeping things changing will allow you to grow what is probably a pretty stagnant existence.
There are about three people in the Real Estate Investing world that I know of that walk the walk on an International level. The top players in the industry will back me on that. It's been over two years now since I made the choice to live this lifestyle. No looking back.
I cured my fear of the dark here in a 300 foot ascent into a pitch black statue guarded by the same statues in Raiders of the lost ark. I pushed through 2 foot cavities into the unknown with nothing but a candle.
We are growing every single day. This is the first time in my entire life that I am doing what I feel I am supposed to be doing. ARE YOU?
Do you feel like you are treading water or worse, swimming upstream? Do you feel that there's something more you are supposed to be doing with your life?
Do you work a full day, earn great money and still feel empty?
Maybe it's time you started going somewhere with your life again. Maybe it's time to learn a little something a little different. Something a little more counter-intuitive to what you have previously been taught.
Before we can worry about travel and living the life of a multi-millionaire, we need to get your bills covered. My goal is to have you there within the next 8 weeks.
Most of my life changing decisions started with an ounce of curiosity..
Click only if you are READY FOR A NEW LIFE
See you on the other side.
