Key Takeaways:

“It’s been an incredible journey to get to where I am, knowing where I was before. And it really kind of shows us that anybody can do this if you put your mind into it.” – Gary Hibbert  

“Just shut the noise out. Don’t pay attention to what the mainstream media is saying and hyping up. Just be careful of where you’re getting your information. What you’d want to do is you’d want to start listening to real estate investors and listen to what people are doing that are actually on the street. Lots of people have tuned out that noise because what they do is they focus more on the fundamentals, they’re focusing on long term growth.” – Gary Hibbert  

“Look at the long term. That’s how you pick the right area to invest in.” – Gary Hibbert   “If you can’t find the opportunity, create it.” – Gary Hibbert  

“We really kind of divide and conquer. What she’s good at, she does. What I’m good at, I will do. But we definitely dream together, and we bring the kids into the dreaming as well. What that does is it instills those values into them, too, of not just flowing down the river of life but actually having a strategic game plan for a life of what you want.” – Gary Hibbert  

“Along the way, you will fall down, you will scratch your knee, you will bruise your shoulder, but that’s part of it. That’s the journey. That’s the fun part of everything that you’re doing. It’s not the destination.” – Gary Hibbert
