Many investors are building a plan for someday retiring from their day jobs and entering the world of real estate entrepreneurship full-time. That’s even true for professional athletes, like this episode’s guest, Nat Borchers. Nat is retired professional soccer player, who while building a respected career on the field and winning two MLS Cups, also built a real estate investing business that he could transition to full-time when he retired.
In this episode, Jeff and Nat discuss a wide variety of topics related to real estate investing, entrepreneurship and life, including the importance of being coachable, how to be intentional in life and business, and the parallels between winning as an athlete and as an investor. Plus, Nat shares the story of a giant BRRRR deal involving 28 homes!
And so for me, it’s like: Look, I love real estate, I love doing deals, I might lose, sometimes I might win sometimes, but I’m enjoying that part of it. Right. And then I also love my family, and I can be with them a lot more with this lifestyle that I do have. And so I kind of tried to do that every single day and some days I’m successful at it and some days, not so. But I think the goal is always to have more time and to be more present. And I think the longer you get in the real estate game, the more you can do that.
