Jim Toner has been an entrepreneur in the real estate industry for a quarter of a century. He says he has been through the best of times and the worst of times during the course of his professional career. He says that at one point he was broke and after just a few years he was able to become a successful investor in real estate as well as a mentor and success coach teaching others how to also find success buying and selling real estate. He now shares his methods with others and helps build their wealth.
Many regular Americans have not done well for the past decade. The recession wiped out a lot of wealth, both in the stock markets and in real estate. Too many people lost everything such as having their homes foreclosed on while at the same time losing everything in their retirement accounts. According to Toner, it wasn’t that real estate was a bad thing to invest in but rather that a lot of people made poor and misguided decisions about it.
Jim Toner says that now is a great time to invest in real estate if you know what you are doing. He says in the next five years there will be many opportunities to acquire a lot of wealth by buying and selling real estate. The most important asset to have to make this happen is attitude, Toner says. He says the economy really depends on how you see it. You can be a person who sees opportunities rather than barriers, he says, or you can be a person who only sees risks and doesn’t consider the rewards to be had.
Jim Toner also says that it is important to utilize the knowledge and experience of others who have succeeded where you want to also attain success. He points out that many entrepreneurs who put together teams that did a lot of the work for them to get them where they wanted to be. A book he recommends people read for more information about this is “Think and Grow Rich” which is by Napoleon Hill.
