From Vixen in Vegas:
I am not a gambler. I don’t make bets…not on sports, not in casinos. I don’t take unnecessary chances. There will be no bungy jumping, no skydiving, no parasailing. When it comes to making decisions in my life, I weigh the odds, consider my skillset, and decide from there. There are some risks that I’m willing to take, calculated risks, the ones that don’t scare me at all. Working online, being self-employed, moving whenever the mood strikes me…. these have never felt like risks. These decisions always felt like the natural progression for me.
Real estate is a gamble that I’ve never lost. My choices have served me well. At the tender age of 28, I have five properties in five different states. Four of them are rented. The fifth, I’m living in…for a few more days. As I drive back to Raleigh from Charleston, I’m completely lost in thought. Never before have I taken a chance when I have stood to lose more than I could safely. So what the hell was I doing…laying my heart on the line?
