[06:30] “You have to first understand your time and money cost…Unless you're paying attention and doing time studies…you're really not going to know how much time you're spending to make what you make.”
[14:50] “Due diligence happens in the transactional process because you can do your numbers on the house but if it doesn't close, it doesn't matter.”
[21:04] “If you've got the mentality to adapt, or pivot and find the opportunity, wherever you are, then I think you can be successful in this industry.”
You have to first understand your time and money cost. And I think that that's it unless you're paying attention and doing time studies, and going really in-depth there, you're really not going to know how much time you're spending to make what you make.
