Learning Lessons From Mental Illness With Jay Gabrani Part 3

Life is too short to not have more fun

Life is too short to not have more fun, more often. I was thinking this after a night out on Friday with a bunch of buddies who all happen to be real estate investors, to celebrate a friend’s birthday doing axe throwing, indulging in an adult beverage or ten, gambling, clubbing, and more gambling.

That how we do!! #bullseye #howicollectrent

Then on the following Tuesday, I was reminded how short life is as I was driving home from my colonoscopy appointment. My family doctor requested the procedure because we lost my uncle at 51 to colon Cancer. My cousin was ten when he lost his father. He’s a good man now, having turned 18, and is apprenticing as a car mechanic at Honda. But I’ll never forget the image of my cousin after the coffin was in the ground and buried, how he ran back to place his hand on the mound of dirt to say one final goodbye.

My friends, life is short. Go have more fun, stay away from negative people, make lots of money while you’re young so you can enjoy it.

Last week I made the decision that on my 45th birthday, I’m taking most of the year off to travel the world with my wife and kids. Anyone can do the same with our Freedom 45 program. Don’t know what that is? That’s OK, we at Titan Investment Real Estate will be rolling it out soon. For our existing clients, you’re already a part of it, we’re just finally giving it a name now.

Learning Lessons From Mental Illness With Jay Gabrani Part 3

This week we have part 3 of my interview with Jay Gabrani. Parts 1 and 2 had a lot more about investing passively so that you don’t have to work, but part 3 is the most important part. Personally, I’d rather have my wife and mother of my children than my real estate. A real estate portfolio is easy to build with the right team and education – I can’t replace Cherry.

So you’ve been warned, this episode is less about making money and more about Jay’s lessons and story of living with someone suffering from mental illness and what he would have done differently. This may be the most important episode of the podcast and I hope we make a difference in a few lives.

I give you, Jay Gabrani.
