How To Escape The Corporate Matrix—Creating Your Escape Velocity

Paul Thompson wanted to break free of the chains holding him to his corporate job. He found himself in middle-management feeling unfulfilled, unrewarded, and a little depressed. 

It was a family vacation that ended too soon that was the driving force that sent him looking for a change. He says that he never wanted to have to ask for permission to spend more time with his family again. 

I didn’t want to be controlled by some corporation that I am just a cold equation to.

Paul is now a full time real estate investor who lives to help others to find their way also by turning his personal story of screening 20 deals in his first 18 months of investing into an inspiration to others. 

Now doing about three deals per month Paul is able to help himself as well as help others build wealth with passive income

You have to change this concept and this thought of, time is equal to money. It’s a flawed mindset. Time is certainly valuable. In fact, it’s invaluable but when you are trapped in this matrix type thinking of always trying to exchange your time for money it’s a losing proposition. You have to figure out how to make money when you’re sleeping. If you can go to bed each night and wake up the next morning a little bit richer then that’s how you’re going to get ahead.
