(It's an approach YOU can apply using the new BiggerPockets Intention Journal.)But this show is about much more than real estate.

Oh, and you’ll learn the meaning of “M.I.N.S.” and the role they play in moving your business forward (ESPECIALLY when the going gets tough). Brandon also shares why writing out a “vivid vision” of your future might be the best thing you can do to move yourself closer to your ideal life; why he asks, “What would be awesome?” and then works backwards; and why he and his wife organize a goal-setting retreat together on the same day every year.This is an amazing episode that lays out a battle plan for getting WAY more done while setting aside quality time for friends, family, and fun. Download this one, and subscribe using your favorite podcast app so you won’t miss any future shows!In This Episode We Cover:Brandon's mobile oil change business plan (that he didn't execute on)How he flipped a house and spent all the moneyBrandon's very first house hackHow he “got into the business of collecting units” and quit his jobHow a cold email led to him working for BiggerPocketsThe strategy he used to write 50 blog posts in a year for BiggerPocketsBrandon's thoughts on the path to 100 units Why you should ask yourself, “What would be awesome?”How to ask, “What if it was easy?” and work backwards toward your goalHow to balance family life and health with business Why he chose mobile home park investing (hint: not because it’s the “best” asset)How to "have it all" (as long as you’re focused and tracking everything)Tips for setting goals as a coupleHow to identify the “Most Important Next Step” (M.I.N.S.) and then time block it The 90 Days of Intention JournalThe importance of writing down goals every dayAnd SO much more!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBrandon's InstagramDavid's InstagramBiggerPockets Business PodcastSmart Passive Income BlogViper ChillNeil PatelGraphicRiver.netBiggerPockets Podcast 230: Real Estate Investing as a Side Hustle with Grammy-Winning Producer Seth MosleyMusic and Money Investor Group"Heartbeat" Music VideoBrandon's Vivid Vision (photo)Tim Ferriss ShowFull Circle MusicBiggerPockets PodcastJosh DorkinJ Scott's BlogBiggerPockets Podcast 234: Tenants, Evictions, & The Dark Side of No Money Down with Ryan MurdockBiggerPockets Money PodcastMindy JensenScott TrenchDavid GreeneReal Estate In Your TwentiesBiggerPockets Bookstore

It's kind of hilarious to me that Brandon is incapable of saying David's name without adding Greene to the end of it. David Greene just rolls off the tongue I guess.
