If you ask people at the end of their lives to reflect on their regrets, no one ever mentions money or work. Instead, their focus tends toward the relationships they neglected. So, when Ken McElroy realized he only had one shot at having a great rapport with his kids, he got serious about designing a life of balance that allows him to grow a successful real estate business AND be fully present with his family.
Ken has 20-plus years of experience in real estate investment analysis, property management, acquisitions and property development. Ken serves as an advisor to Robert Kiyosaki of The Rich Dad Company, and he is the author of the bestselling books The ABCs of Real Estate Investing, The ABCs of Property Management, and The Sleeping Giant. An advocate for entrepreneurs and real estate investors, Ken makes regular media appearances and speaks at top industry events all over the world. He is also the host of Entrepreneur magazine’s Real Estate Radio program.
Today, Ken joins me to share his insight around work-life balance, explaining why he takes time away to work ON the business and connect with his family. He describes how his definition of success has changed over time and how the decision to prioritize relationships translates to his business. Listen in to understand Ken’s take on limiting beliefs and learn how he approaches life with a commitment to being self-aware and fully present.
