Have you seen the Broadway musical Hamilton? I went with my family a number of years ago and we all loved it. My kids even know every single song by heart!
There’s a line in the musical that really struck a chord with me. He says, “I wanna build something that’s going to outlive me.”
Alexander’s wife, Eliza, however, couldn’t understand her husband’s need for immortality. For her, Alexander’s mere existence was enough for her.
I can relate to Alexander’s desire for something more. As entrepreneurs, we have a desire to leave the world a better place, to make our mark on the world.
This is why I absolutely LOVE working in real estate.
Most people wake up, go to work, pay their bills, go to bed, and then do it all over again.
But in real estate, and especially probate real estate, we get to make people’s lives better. Not only do we get to help families who are lost in the probate process, but we also provide contractors, plumbers, electricians, and other laborers respectable wages, and ultimately help a new family create memories in a beautiful place they can call home.
I consider it a blessing to be able to teach real estate investors how to help people in probate.
Yesterday I was reading a scripture passage in Ecclesiastes (3:11) that said God has “set eternity in the human heart.”
Know that the work that you do matters to a lot of people and that the mark you leave through your work will live on beyond your days.
Committed to your success,
