Jonathan Farber achieved financial freedom at 27. He left his corporate enterprise technology sales job to focus on traditional rentals, short-term rentals, Airbnb arbitrage, and wholesaling podcasting, and course creation. He leads a mastermind group of people looking to start real estate investing. He started with house hacking from 21-25 and then started buying traditional rentals and short-term rentals with creative acquisition and financing strategies. Jonathan has done this by using virtual assistants, systems, and a few close team members.

In this episode, Jonathan shares how things become more efficient and productive for him as he takes advantage of outsourcing tasks he doesn't like doing, are repetitive and is not good at.

Key Takeaways: 

"I think the mantra with VA is that 80% of something is better than 100% of nothing. It's like an overused, trite expression. But so true. We're all perfectionists. And what I think about with a lot of activities is root cause analysis, like why am I not doing the thing that I want to do?" - Jonathan Farber

"I would say my system for productivity is a combination of like EOS, Traction, one thing, these are all books, but you know, just for me, like identifying what were the pieces that I like doing, that I'm good at doing? And then what are the things that I don't like doing and I'm not good at doing." - Jonathan Farber

"I think there's really only three things that can't be outsourced, which are taking care of your body, making goals, and creating relationships. Other than that, I feel like almost everything tactically can be outsourced." - Jonathan Farber

"I think the absolute easiest way is getting a logo done. I think for a lot of people, it'll open up the mind to the possibility of outsourcing something that in our heads would think is very, may be expensive or difficult." - Jonathan Farber
