RJ, RRJ, The Boss
Where else can you make hundreds of thousands of dollars every year while helping people realize their dreams. No other business has the upside that a career in real estate does.
Great question, I think there are a few. JFK’s inauguration speech, the Normandy invasion in WW2, and being in the audience for the Beatles first performance on the Ed Sullivan show.
Without a doubt, a good husband, father to our kids and cool G-Paa.
“Rich And Brian Are The Poster Children For How To Do Things Right.
