I was 12 years old when I took off my face.
Okay, maybe it wasn’t my whole face, but it was a good section of skin covering my nose, forehead, and chin. And if it hadn’t been for that rock getting in the way of the wheel on the scooter I was riding, I would have landed that jump just fine.
But it’s okay. I got better. My skin healed. I learned.
Besides… chicks dig scars.
Now I watch for rocks before doing sweet jumps. Or I just don’t do sweet jumps anymore.
But that’s the point of growing up: making choices and learning from those consequences.
And in some ways, I’m still learning. Only today, those rocks are different. Today I’m not landing many sweet jumps, but I am landing sweet property investments, and most of the time I land them alright.
Every once in a while, of course, I hit a rock.
And it hurts. And I lose some of my face.
But it’s okay. I get better. My skin heals. I learn.
And chicks dig scars.
That’s what I want to share with you today – some of the things I’ve learned; I want to point out the rocks so you can save some of your facial skin and stay pretty.
But not too pretty.
So the following are 5 and 1/2 tips for making your first (or next) property investment. Pay attention (or don’t. It’s all good.)
