Don't Mistake an Unmet Expectation for a Loss

Jimmy and Ryan discuss the differences between unmet expectations and losses. Some people quit after their first loss, while others find other earning opportunities after.

A lot of people get into the game of real estate investing and financial planning with the expectations of getting a consistent year-over-year return. Most people start thinking about making new investments with the money they’ll earn from those returns.
