Hello, it’s Donna again. I think I may take over Pat’s blog, lol!
As I’ve mentioned in my previous blog post, Patrick is an entrepreneur at heart and he has been looking for something that will put him in charge of his life. Where he didn’t need to get up every Monday to Friday and go in the office from 9am until 5 pm, missing out on life….especially our kids growing up (which is flying by fast!). Where he didn’t have a certain amount of vacation and sick days in a year therefore, not having the freedom to do what he wanted, when he wanted. Even if it was a simple follow up doctor appointment for one of the kids. If he took off for the kids’ doctor appointments, etc., it would eat into his time off which he likes to save for doing fun stuff. I’m not saying JOBs are bad, they just aren’t for Pat. If you enjoy what you do at your job, then that’s great!
Well, one of the ways Pat has tried to create financial freedom and eventually JOB freedom was investing in real estate. Again, if you are a real estate investor and you are making it, great! But that didn’t happen for us and maybe, just maybe if we stuck it out longer, we would have made a few bucks but the stress, the time, the risk, just wasn’t for us (well, not for me anyways!).
I know that a lot of people often turn to real estate investing as a way to create a second income and/or eventually replace their job income. Well, you will need to invest a lot more money in real estate then you would need for Empower Network. I don’t have the time to go digging through our paper records to get exact numbers of the amount of money that we have invested in our properties but what I’m about to breakdown, is probably a lot more than you think!

I titled this post “why I choose Empower Network over Real Estate Investing any day” because of two main reasons: The amount of money you need to invest (and potentially lose) in real estate and the amount of time that is required in real estate.
The amount of money you need to invest in Empower Network (even if you go “all-in”) is WAY LESS than the amount of money you need to dump into a property to just purchase it. In Empower Network, we have invested $5,125 (because we are “all in” and are serious about taking this business far) and that is all we will ever need to pay.
I don’t even want to think about the astronomical amounts of money we have dumped into real estate. It makes me sick to think about. I’m talking thousands of dollars for down payments, thousands of dollars towards contractors, thousands of dollars towards repairs and maintenance and unfortunately, thousands of dollars to get rid of (sell) a couple of the properties.

Yes, we do pay $145 monthly with Empower Network but Pat follows and applies what he is taught and that small monthly amount pays for itself and then some. Yes, we did collect rent each month from our tenants (if we were lucky) but that was used for mortgage payments, taxes, etc. Any extra went towards property upkeep and/or for repairs.
In Empower Network, we don’t have to deal with all the headaches that come with real estate investing. Think about it, if you were to buy $100,000 investment property. I’m going to use a rental property since there are a million ways to invest in real estate. If you need to mortgage that property, you most likely will have to put at LEAST $10,000 down. That’s just the start. If the property needs work, you have to find a reputable contractor (HARD TO FIND!!) and somehow come up with money to pay the contractor.

Then you need to find a tenant, which, if you place an ad, it costs money. Then you have to call all the prospective tenants back and schedule times to meet them at the property, which takes time. Then you have to examine the applications and pull credit, do background checks which takes time and costs money. Then once you have found someone, you have to meet them to fill out the lease, collect deposit and then run that money to the bank, which takes time.

Once they move in, it may or may not be smooth sailing from then on. If not, you could be dealing with getting calls at all hours of the day and night to make repairs or whatever may be going “wrong”. Or they could decide to not pay their rent, then you have to go through the eviction process which is NOT cheap and takes forever (which could mean months of no rent being paid to you but that free loading tenant still living there….can you tell I’ve been there and don’t want to go back?) and then you have to start the finding a new tenant process all over again.

Does that not sound like a major headache? And that’s just one headache. Like I said, there are many different ways to invest in real estate and if you ask me, there is always a “headache” and lots of risk! The amount of money and TIME you have to dump into it, to me, is just not worth it.
Bottom line, TIME is precious! Growing up, I never really thought about how precious time was until we had kids. Nothing like your kids growing like weeds right before your eyes to make you realize how precious time really is. Or if a loved one passes, once again you are reminded of how precious time is.
The amount of time that Pat and I have spent on dealing with the real estate properties that we have owned is depressing. The amount of time that is spent at a J-O-B each week is depressing (again, if you enjoy your job and doing something you truly love and enjoy, you may not feel the same way). We drew out a weekly schedule for Pat to try and get his time organized and 80% of the time on that board is for his 9-5 job.

I’m extremely thankful that I get to be a stay at home mom and spend day in and day out with our two little munchkins. We hit up the park, or the library, or the gym, or go on a play date and I’m constantly taking pictures and videos of them. Although Pat is thrilled kids are out and about, having fun, when he sees the pictures, it makes him sad (and me too) that he is sitting in a cubicle staring at a computer all day instead of spending more time with his family.
Now, I know a lot of you are thinking, “well, that is normal, everyone does that or has to do that.” Well, we want to be abnormal. We want to reverse normal. Maybe spend two days working, if that and the other five days living……that sounds good to me!
With Empower Network, we see freedom. I never saw that with real estate. We see Empower Network replacing his job but working a lot less hours. We see Pat having the freedom to do what he wants, when he wants. We see us being able to do things because we want to rather than whether or not we can afford it. We see the ability to help others succeed in life. Most importantly, we see having the financial freedom to bless others without even hesitating to figure out if we can afford it or not. I’m excited. We are excited. And if you have been considering joining Empower Network, we hope that you see a vision of a brighter future for you and your family as well.
