We always have a story to tell and with the right team behind us, the opportunities to take a platform to tell that story are endless. The article, which you can find here poses this question: "What is the best and craziest you have ever received and how has it led to your success?" For me, that advice was to leave my career in oil & gas sales and start my journey in multifamily investment and management.
You can read my response in the article below:
"Most people tell you to go to college and get an engineering degree to be successful, which is exactly what I did. I worked in oil and gas for years before discovering multifamily real estate, which isn’t a conventional career you learn about in school. When I started following the market, it was like an entire world opened up to me. I discovered that preconceptions about real estate, such as its instability for example, were quite unfounded. Instead, I found a stable market and potential for financial success far greater than what I could reach in my job. So I co-founded a real estate management company in 2007 and taking what I learned there founded Rockstar Capital in 2011.
Joining this industry is one of the best things I’ve ever done. There’s a great sense of stability and ownership over what we do. I take pride in our properties, knowing we provide a phenomenal living experience to our residents, unheard of returns to our investors, and unrivaled culture to our employees."
Any platform that lets us spread the Rockstar story is a valuable platform, especially when it starts to put our name in some of the largest business publications in the world. I strongly encourage you to read the responses from the other entrepreneurs. There is a LOT of wisdom in this piece and I'm incredibly honored to be counted among them.
