Fixer Upper Doctor Blog – Day 4

While I was part-time teaching at the college, I decided to interview for a superintendent position at a nearby Indian Reservation. I thought it would be great to work with the children, parents, and faculty and I was excited about being chosen for the position. However, my gut was tearing me apart because I was not ready to give up my girls again to work 10 hour days. That is the main reason I resigned from the charter school and moved to Colorado in the first place. In the end, I chose to pass up the superintendent position and stay home with my girls. I knew I needed to find a new career, but I was not willing to give up my girls for another full-time career again.

One day I was looking through the paper and found an advertisement about a weekend real estate investing seminar in Denver. So, I bought plane tickets for me and my oldest daughter and we made a weekend of it. Robert Allen was the “guru” sponsoring the event and it was exciting to be there. I went home and signed up for his programs just like many other new investors. Robert’s education was good, but my biggest problem was I was living in a small town and not in Utah where Robert was located. Small towns are not very conducive to real estate investing. However, since it was the start of the Great Recession, I was able to do a few fix and flip and a few owner finance properties in our local area.

Prescription for the Day – It is easier to fix and flip houses where there are a lot of houses!
