An investment has always been one of the main sources to secure financial freedom. Whether it is in the form of education (book and course) or on a materialistic base like real estate, there are huge possibilities that you will never get broke. Most individuals making millions in revenue choose real estate as one of the best forms of investment that provide passive income every month (through rental income).

Sidney Potter has been featured on numerous authority media and continuously active in sharing his expertise with others to help them achieve the real estate deal that will provide them the best result.
Today I got an opportunity to have a quick conversation with D. Sidney Potter and get some advice that will help our audience. I’m thankful for giving his time out of his busy schedule.
What is your best advice?
It’s been said before, but worth repeating. But it is in fact a perfected art in not giving a sh-t about insignificant incidentals. Having said that, that does not give you carte blanche leeway to be dismissive towards any and everyone. But rather, the freedom to filter out inapplicable issues that are poisonous to your mental health.
What was the biggest business mistake you made and what did you do to learn from it?
Over leveraged myself during my tract home whoring real estate flipping days. There’s still some visible scar tissue. But like any good crisis, I was able to opportunize it into a much more tempered and calibrated approach to other financial situations.
What 3 books would you recommend every entrepreneur to read?
Your question is numerically perfect. The three books I would suggest are as follows: The Flip (Tate Publishing, 2010), The Essayist (Penguin Author House, 2017), and The Broker (Palmetto Publishing, 2020). All of these were written by me, yours truly.
If you had to pick a charity to give to, who would it be and why?
It would be Save the Children, and Habitat for Humanity. About 20 years ago I got clued into Save the Children when my Mother gave it to me as a gift in the form of a donation in my name. Ever since I’ve been hooked with the monthly auto-debit membership. It’s a great way to not only build Jesus points for your own misgivings, but it helps people in need. I have the monthly donations go to Sub-Sahara Africa. Hopefully, some little fellow down there is enjoying a bowl of rice on me.
What is the one mantra that you live your life by?
There’s a fine line between delusional aspirations and reasonably achievable goals.
