3 Shaping Lessons from My First Year Investing

SmartHey, guys, Bob McIntosh here with a great video lesson. Today I’m going to answer a question many students and new investors often ask me:

What makes you such a successful investor when it comes to rehabbing?

The answer is really simple.

My first year – I FAILED BIG TIME. I mean, I made about every mistake possible and I lost a ton of not only my money, but also my dad’s. (Nothing makes you feel worse than when your parents bet on you and you let them down.)

I know you are scratching your head wondering, “So again, how does that make you an awesome rehabber now?”

Well that saying, “You learn the most from your mistakes,” is totally true… especially when it comes to investing. In today’s video lesson, I tell you how my first year of mistakes turned me into the powerhouse that I am today and…

  • The 3 turning points that made me the successful investor I am now;
  • How changing your mindset can turn failure into fuel for success;
  • How to know when the time is right to leave your full-time job; and
  • Much, much more.

So, are you guys ready to learn how flopping big time could be the best thing that ever happens to you as an investor? Here ya go, enjoy.
