In this episode of The All-In Podcast, Dan welcomes an Australian upstart whose entrepreneurial journey started with – and continues to flourish under – a simple question: Will you regret this decision when you’re 65? So far, Reed Goossens’ strategy has worked. He has compiled a great track record, working and traveling across multiple countries, meeting his future American wife and acquiring the skills necessary to launch what today is a successful real estate development career. He is also the author of “Investing in the U.S.: The Ultimate Guide to U.S. Real Estate” and “Investing in the U.S.”
The conversation also touches on something that Reed has come to understand matters every bit as much as tirelessly and enthusiastically pursuing your entrepreneurial North Star: Balance. The illness and death of his mother several years ago offered Reed an opportunity to step back and recognize that no amount of professional success will replace quality of life and meaningful connections. He shares thoughts on the “pillars” he believes are key (among them health, relationships and community).
The episode wraps up with some great practical advice for anyone starting their entrepreneurial adventure. Steps that Reed recommends right out of the gate include:
