Define Your Success

Wow! What a hectic few weeks. Ronan and I got to spend a delicious week with our family - what fun! He actually took the picture I've used for this blog - not bad for a two year old...

The only downside of holidays is the amount of work you come back to after one. I'm busy catching up still.

Yesterday as I was driving I heard Andre Agassi on CBC radio. I was only able to hear a short clip but what I heard was wonderful. Andre was asked how young people can be successful and he said by defining what your idea of success is.

Before you take any step in any direction you must decide what YOU require to feel successful. Not your mom, not your dad, not what anyone else says is success but what you determine. By doing so you will save yourself a lot of frustration, disappointment and perhaps feelings of failure.

What great advice!

So what is your definition and have you reached it? Maybe you're there and you don't even know yet.

I just ran across your blog. I'm an investor in the South in the U.S. I mostly sell to clients that are local but you've just shown me that working with international clients is definitely a potential!

It is absolutely. When we started our company we met many of our clients through our website. You can absolutely do it with a good marketing and SEO campaign.

The best part is think of all the countries it opens up to go visit!
Best luck, Danielle

Hi Danielle and Todd - This is a great post that got me thinking about my own situation. When did you both move to full time investing in real estate? Perhaps this should of gone in an email but would love to hear about this in a future post if possible.
