How can we structure our lives and manage our time in all our roles without overwhelming ourselves?

Brandon Rabe is an active investor that specializes in the BRRRR strategy. Through massive action, he has acquired several cash-flowing properties in just a short period of time. He also graduated from the WNN Properties mentorship program and became certified as a High-Performance coach.

Key Takeaways:

"It's not easy; it's very hectic at times. But there are certain things that I do that help with that. One thing is time blocking, managing my time, writing out, planning my day every morning -- what I will be doing every half an hour. So, that gives me a blueprint of how the day's going to work." - Brandon Rabe

"With everything I'm doing, I want to make sure I'm intentional. It means doing something with meaning; identifying why I'm doing certain things." - Brandon Rabe 

"I'm finding that the more I get into real estate and personal development, the more I'm moving people away that aren't aligned to that outside of my life. But I still make an effort to reach out. I'll shoot them a text, say, hey, just in case nobody tells you today; I hope you have a great day, very simple. Whether that produces a conversation or not, at least it leaves the door open for them to reach back out to me if they ever want to talk about real estate, mindset, or whatever it is." - Brandon Rabe
