My name is Gilbert. I was a former chemical engineer in the oil and gas industry up until August of 2016, I joined the Freedom Mentor program in May. Up until then, I was doing it part-time until the oil crisis happened and caught up to my company where I lost my job. Now I’m doing real estate investing full time.
I joined the Freedom Mentor program for one simple answer, it was to become wealthy. When I went to school, I wanted to become an engineer to make money. When my mentor in engineering told me that I was in the wrong field if I wanted to become rich, well that’s when I decided to start looking elsewhere.
I read a lot of books on becoming wealthy. As I was reading those books, I discovered Phil on YouTube and everything he preached, freedom and wealth through real estate. His mentorship program was something that caught my eye but it was always on the back seat. Until that day I made that decision and when I discovered what true wealth was, I knew that I never wanted to work for anybody ever again. Freedom meant to me being your own boss and being there for my family. My dream is to be home with my kids.
When I signed up for the Freedom Mentor program, my gut went on fire. I’m a man who trusts his gut. That’s how I found my wife, that’s how I found my puppy. So, when I signed up for the Freedom Mentor program, I knew it was right.
I’m here to share my first deal that I closed last month. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life honestly. I never had to come out of my shell and work so hard all myself through anything I’ve ever done. There was times when I was down and I was out, but I just on a coaching call, talked to the coaches, to Phil, and things moved forward just as they told me. Everything worked out smooth. Every part of the deal that could’ve went wrong, it did. I had situations where the title company failed to show up, to even start the work. To try even back out, had contractors back out on me, I had sellers steal from me. I just had a mess of problems, but throughout that deal, I’m glad to say we made $12,000.
I believe in this program. After I got let go from my previous company, I decided to take this full time because I fully believe in Phil’s program. It was a … it’s not just the program, it’s not just the blueprint, it’s not just the coaches, just his trainings. To me it was the relationship and the growth in myself. I did things I could never even thought of doing or done without having the right poke in the back. That was a … you know, the relationships, trainings, everything’s excellent. I’m giving up my four years of college knowing that this is where I’m meant to be. I’m meant to be a real estate investor. I was meant to be wealthy. I was meant to be there for my family at all times. This is to the first of many.
On a personal note, just between us guys, just thank you Phil. Thank you Brian. Thank you coaches. Thank you everyone who was a part of this deal. Who helped me out every step of the way. I was truly blessed. I discovered at a young age what it meant to have a mentor as I did in engineering. I knew I was gung-ho on Freedom Mentor. I’m just happy to say I made the right decision here today. My family thanks you, my future family thanks you. I’m on my way. I promise you that I’m gonna bust my butt. I’m gonna close a lot of deals. We’re gonna make a lot of money together. You have my word on this video as a promise.
