The meaning of passion varies for everyone in the world. Being able to chase your dreams is one of the most liberating feelings on earth. For many, this passion leads them to the path to success. However, it requires immense patience, hard work, and dedication. Many around the globe have set examples of being able to accomplish their ultimate goals in life using these golden traits.
One of these unstoppable and resilient dreamers is Augie Schmidt. He is a commercial real estate entrepreneur who has managed to change his life through his unique vision and the power of hard work. When he realized that the brokerage industry was booming, Augie had to build a better path for himself.
Augie started his career as a research analyst and made only $12/hr, which was quite disheartening. But he knew there was a lot in store for him to execute if he was courageous enough. This eventually led him to launch his own start-up E-learning company, CRE Academy.
CRE Academy helps others learn the best possible ways to succeed in the commercial real estate industry. The reason Augie built this was to ensure that no one had to go through the beginning of their careers without any guidance from experts. Augie’s passion is training others and helping them build their own paths.
What helps Augie stand out from the crowd are his unique accomplishments at only the age of 28. He has become a nationally recognized commercial real estate agent and sold properties worth almost $100,000,000. These insane numbers are genuine and have helped Augie make a name for himself in the industry.
Currently, Augie is ranked at number 8 out of 1,600+ advisors nationwide this year. In addition to that, he was also ranked number 3 out of 1,600+ advisors around the country in 2020. These statistics are impressive, but his success lies in the experience he has gained over the years. People like him have genuinely changed their lives through hard work.
Augie makes his expertise accessible to many, and another one of the ways he makes this possible is through The CRE Collective, a high performance community he founded to enrich CRE professionals with sales skills, efficiency tactics, and accountability in prospecting. Members invest $297 per month.
Making it so far in life is something Augie never imagined growing up. Having a difficult upbringing often destroys your hope in yourself. His childhood was very chaotic and filled with dark days, but by the age of 19, Augie managed to get himself out of that situation and decided to walk in the direction he had always dreamt of.
His companies are growing fast and have a chance to be even bigger than he imagined. The juggling does become overwhelming for Augie, but what keeps him going is the potential his businesses have in this booming industry.
Augie looks forward to giving back to the community and plans to have a bigger impact on people, especially those in need. Helping the less fortunate is what he really plans on doing, as his purpose in life hasn’t been monetary. Businesspeople like him are a rare find but are truly an example for many around the globe. He is an inspiration for the younger generation of this era.
