Episode Notes

Jay Papasan is an incredible author who has co-authored books such as: The Millionaire Real Estate Agent, Millionaire Real Estate Investor and The One Thing, just to name a few.

He has always had a passion for writing and, fortunately for us, he landed a role working with Gary Keller of Keller Williams, back before KW was what it is today.

Jay is inspired by his mentors (including Gary Keller, his parents, and his wife) and is driven by a very clear purpose and goals. He works hard to be a great husband, a fantastic father, and maintain his goals in alignment with this purpose.

  2. Go really slow, until you’re clear on which way you’re going...then go!
  3. Figure out what you’re investing FOR
  4. Putting an intention ON YOUR CALENDAR makes you 3x more likely to actually do it 
  5. Get in alignment with the people on your team
