Studying together with your partner is a key to success.
Kim and Robert Kiyosaki both told me that “couples either grow together or grow apart.”
When Marisa and I started our journey, we decided that all the training will be done together. We shared every training course, no matter what! That was our deal.
When Marisa attended a tax summit training with me, she was not impressed! For the first hour, she was worried about the content, but then she discovered how much she really knew. The three full days reinforced our strategy, corporate structures, compliance and communication. We remained ‘on the same page’ for every business change after that, and we both can communicate the accounting, tax and legal languages.
Then there was the capital raising summit, with Sean Soole and Kerwin Rae.
I still remember one of the presenters asked the audience of over 100 business owners, “Who could go away form their business for six months or more and have it running when you got back?”
Since we just arrived back from an extended holiday, Marisa and I quickly shot our hands up! We were both thrilled after returning from Europe with the business was stronger than before.
Then I slowly turned around looking all around the room. No other hands went up that day. Hmm, I quietly said to Marisa “look around the room”. That day remains burnt into my memory. We had a Freedom Business, which worked without us, because of all our previous intensive training with Robert, Chris Howard, Brendon Nichols and so many advisors. We both learned the language that allowed us to think differently.
