Learned from Near Death Experience

Story time: I almost died in this little duplex one night.

But I also credit my personal, financial and business successes to this near-death experience.

(It’s where I learned one of the BIGGEST lessons of my life, which I’m going to share with you in a moment.)

It happened when I was 23 years old.

I was $40,000 in debt, and I couldn’t hold down a job (lost 5 or 6 of them in fact)…

If you didn’t already know, I had a terrible drug problem for 10 years.

And unlike today, I had zero connections. Instead, I just had terrible friends.

So one rainy Louisiana night, I’d failed yet again to quit drugs.

The bad company I talked about? They broke into that tiny duplex I showed you earlier.

One guy held a 45-caliber pistol to my face, and when I fought back, he beat me to a pulp.

When he was done with me, my blood was on the walls and ceiling.

Finally, they ransacked the house, robbed me, and left me for dead.

My mother didn’t even recognize me when I got out of the hospital three days later, and she told me, “You’re no longer welcome in my home. I don’t want to see you anymore.”

24 hours later, I was in a treatment center. I stayed for 30 days and for the first time in my life, I was able to quit drugs successfully. 

I was terrified to go back to society when my insurance ran out because EVERYONE I knew was using drugs: my friends, my girlfriend, and even my co-workers.

That was when my life turned around.


I had to cut off all my friends (or were they enemies?) and start over with BETTER connections.

Every moment I could, I made phone calls. I traveled to different cities to meet people. And I got in the right rooms and talked to the right people!

I got around people more successful than me, and I took their words as gospel (still do today!).


My network IS my net worth.

And thanks to the right connections, I went on to write 8 bestselling business books, have multiple income streams, and built a $5 billion portfolio of multifamily properties from scratch.

Most importantly, instead of trading my time for money, I get to cherish every living moment I have with my beautiful wife and 2 lovely daughters.
