Key Takeaways:

“I wouldn’t wait that long. The one mistake I did is that I did everything alone. In the beginning, I was doing everything alone. We did renovations on my own with a few people there. Even accumulating the down payment, I had to do everything alone. Even find the deal. I was the lone ranger, so the idea of doing it alone is really not the way of doing it. Once I figured and got a bit of coaching and got a bit of help and let other people do the same thing, it raised my level of the game much higher.” – René Masse

“I know the thing I noticed with people is to really make good changes,  to learn. There are really just three ways. First is you’re reading a textbook or you’re learning it through to online. You’re honestly doing it. The second way is actually doing it yourself, learning with all the mistakes. But the best way is this where I wish I’d learned this much earlier, is learning through other people’s mistakes. So for example, I’m coaching, once I got a bit of coaching, I was learning through the experience and the mistakes of other people. So that definitely helped.” – René Masse

“I’ve got to say, it’s the persistence because Winston Churchill, he’s got that nice quote.  It’s like when you’re going through hell, just keep going. And that’s really what has helped me over the years.” – René Masse

“Superpower. It can take years to develop. But I think I’ve tapped into it nine years ago, 19 years ago, and the reason I’ve tapped into it, it’s a true morning routine that involves, this may throw a few people off, but it’s true, meditation and Hot Yoga. And the reason is that we’ve been conditioned over the years to really avoid pain and discomfort. It’s just human nature to avoid pain and discomfort and hot yoga, especially in meditation, you’re kind of rewired again to accept discomfort and face it head-on.” – René Masse
