Jon: Welcome to the Million Dollar Mortgage Experience podcast. I'm here with Stefan. How's it going Stefan?
Stefan: Very good. How are you?
Jon: Doing great. Thanks for joining us today. So, talk to us about your respect the grind. I love that.
Stefan: Thanks dude. Yeah, well respect the grind is a saying I've been saying ... I'm a real estate coach and investor and I had a student some years ago and he was saying, "Oh Stefan, this isn't working. I'm making my calls and my offers and I'm just not getting anywhere and I don't think this whole thing works." I said, "Jason, you just got to respect the grind. It's going to take you ten years and ten thousand hours to be a master, and why do you think that you can cut the line and get ahead of everyone who's been working at this for so long?" So it's a saying to respect the process and respect that journey towards mastery. That's what it's really about.
Jon: That's great man. Yeah, it's true, and so many people think that things can just fall into their lap. And then just come so easily, when the truth is, it's the overnight success 10 years in the making, kind of thing, right? I mean, it takes a lot of effort, a lot of work to get to success. And then kind of like, I think Gary Vee says, "If you want to be in the 1%, you got to be willing to do 99% more than the rest of the groups." So I agree, the grind is very essential. And you talk about, I think in your book or on your podcast and your sites, that you became a multimillionaire and you started with $1,200. Tell us about how you became a multimillionaire. Was it mostly real estate related? Really what drove that?
