[26:09] “In the coaching programs that I have, most of them don't teach you how to keep your money. And I guess that's absolutely the reason why you wrote [Profit First for Real Estate Investors].”
[27:42] “I make plans for my business and how to market. I make plans for my business; how to generate those leads. I make plans for how to sell those deals. I make plans for how to do this and everything. Shouldn't I then also make a plan for where my money goes?”
[32:30] “If I hadn't had a profit first plan, 2020 would have crushed me.”
