Chad - In His Words:
By this time I was 29, I had 4 real estate licenses, had managed over $1 Billion in closings, and sold over $100 Million in real estate but I had only made it to a net worth of $150,000. I was living in Kaanapali Beach, Maui and I was NOT fulfilled or challenged so I found the courage to follow my intuition and hit the reset button. I left my W2 J.O.B. even though I didn’t know what I would do in the 2011 economy.
Finding Purpose in My Work and becoming Chad Corbett again.
For the next 2 months, I traveled to Canada on an adventure motorcycle with a flyrod, a journal, and a backpacker’s tent. One night by a lake in interior British Columbia, when I least expected it, I had an experience that changed my life, and the lives of many others, for the better. That night I was watching the last light tuck behind the Three Sisters and paying close attention to the feeling of peace and tranquility in my heart. After weeks of being alone nearly 24 hours a day, with no electronics, I finally felt relaxed and at peace with the risks and tranquility of the wilderness. It was at this moment that I asked myself “How do you need to live in order to be in control of this feeling whenever you want it?”. I had a bit of a burning bush moment as the 3 guiding principles I still live my life by came to me silently but in the loudest voice I had ever heard:
- Always help others more than yourself
- Always net $100k+ so you can live and give the way you want to
- Always be able to run it from a phone or laptop anywhere in the world
