BCF 300: Values Over Opportunities

with Gino Barbaro

Becoming successful enough in real estate to scale depends on three main factors: having the right mindset, building the right team, and closing the right deals. If any one of these links in the chain is weak, it will be difficult to succeed. Gino Barbaro is an investor, business owner, author, and entrepreneur. He has grown his real estate portfolio to over 1400 multifamily units. He’s also the co-founder of Jake & Gino, a multifamily real estate education company that offers coaching and training programs. A former restaurant owner, Gino was able to break into to multifamily real estate and has now grown to over $100 million in assets under management.

Many people want to get into the multifamily space but have limiting beliefs around how they’re going to come up with the money and where they can gain credibility. Gino is proof that when the little guy takes a chance and then hangs in there, the sky becomes the limit. Investing in education is the key to making your dreams come true, along with getting crystal clear on strategy. When you’re thinking about achieving your goals, in investing and in life, you have to start with your “how” and your “why”. Peeling back the onion in all the different areas of your life will help you uncover your own unique values, which serve as the compass for the decisions that follow. Values will always be more important than opportunities, and sometimes this will mean walking away from things that could make you money, but just aren’t quite in alignment with you or your vision.

What’s Inside:

  • Why you should focus on your values over opportunities.
  • Why education is an important investment for personal growth.
  • The questions to ask yourself when looking for multifamily deals.
