Key Takeaways: 

“I think a proper mindset is really important everywhere. It’s not easy, this is a team sport, and being a real estate investor, it’s just a different form of excellence.” – Kory MacKinnon 

“You have to make sure that you’re prepared, and you need to have that ‘Why,’ that’s because when you have your why and when that’s really clear, then you’re being pulled in instead of having to push yourself.” – Kory MacKinnon 

“I find it’s very important in life to know why you’re here on earth and what your mission is. If you’re clear on your mission, that’s when the passion can flow.” – Kory MacKinnon 

“I’ve dabbled in the stock market, too. I just don’t like that there’s not as much control there as when I buy a piece of real estate, there’s an upmarket, down-market, sideways market and still have a huge amount of influence on the value and the sale price of that asset.” – Kory MacKinnon 

“I love multifamily because it’s more like a business. You can actually change that business. It’s valued by the banks based on the rent roll and the expenses. I like that you have a little more control here.” – Kory MacKinnon 

“People get analysis-paralysis and they just sit on the sidelines way too long. You can’t learn a sport by sitting on the sidelines, either reading a book or watching YouTube, like, you got to get out there and play the game on the field.”  – Kory MacKinnon  

“You have to realize that you can’t do this all yourself. And it’s the people that try to be a lone wolf, they typically end up dying on their own sword.” – Kory MacKinnon
