Chris patron here and some of you have
00:02
asked me if I would actually talk more
00:04
about how it got started on my journey
00:06
in the land of real estate creating
00:07
wealth retiring at the age of 26 so in
00:10
today’s video I really want to back up
00:11
and share with you some of the moments
00:13
in my life that really helped me create
00:15
this self-made success and I hope it
00:17
will help you on your journey to
00:22
[Music]
00:26
so many people asking and wanting to
00:28
know Chris how did you do something so
00:30
extraordinary financially in such a very
00:33
short period of time and I thought today
00:35
I would try to give you really the the
00:37
full story behind how it happened
00:38
because I think there might be some
00:40
Nuggets there that can be useful for you
00:41
it started actually when I was 8 years
00:42
old that we’re like going back to the
00:44
beginning and I would witness my parents
00:46
struggle with money and really fight
00:48
about money my mom being more Irish and
00:50
my dad definitely being German you mix
00:52
those two together you’re gonna get kind
00:54
of a little bit of a volatile scenario
00:55
and my mom and dad would be pretty vocal
00:58
about their fights they try to keep it
00:59
away from the kids but there was no
01:00
doubt in the fact that we knew that
01:02
there was fighting over money my dad was
01:04
an entrepreneur trying to make it in
01:05
business nine kids and I’m number four
01:07
then if you study child Theory order
01:10
theory I’m the glue right I’m the one in
01:12
the middle that’s trying to keep the
01:13
family together and so one time I
01:15
overheard my mom and dad in the office
01:17
at home arguing older money and I have
01:21
this strong feeling I want to make
01:23
enough money someday for my parents now
01:25
that’s a cute thought and feeling of an
01:27
eight-year-old trying to be the glue to
01:28
hold the family together but something
01:30
really touched my heart and felt very
01:31
very inspired that day and so I just got
01:34
it early on in my mind that I needed to
01:35
have enough money growing up for my
01:37
family and also for my parents so
01:38
basically two families and if I fast
01:41
forward the next moment that really
01:43
impacted Who I am today happened last 15
01:47
years old I was in that awkward teen
01:49
years where it was right before my my
01:51
big growth spurt and I was kind of
01:54
chubby I didn’t have a lot of
01:55
self-confidence and I really wasn’t
01:57
aware or awake to life I felt kind of
01:59
picked on and made fun of in school I
02:00
think most people probably did but my
02:03
dad got me a paper out he tried to put
02:04
me in different sports and try to awaken
02:06
something from within and nothing was
02:08
doing it but my dad put me in front of
02:09
the paper out and I was curious and I
02:12
came to life and it it awoke this inner
02:15
entrepreneur right an intrapreneur
02:17
who by the way the summer earlier during
02:19
school had actually sold mom and dad’s I
02:22
basically had made my own fun dips out
02:24
of Mom’s sugar packets with kool-aid and
02:26
had kids buying that for the first half
02:27
the day made like 40 something dollars
02:29
and I got pulled into the VP’s office
02:30
and she confiscated after she tried
02:33
snorting some of it I couldn’t figure
02:34
out why at the time she
02:35
taught us doing drugs I figured out
02:36
later but anyway I had this
02:38
entrepreneurial thing going on and being
02:39
a paperboy I could make $400 a month
02:42
delivering these papers after school on
02:44
my bike loved it so much I picked up
02:46
within six months two more routes all
02:48
next to each other so I had this bag on
02:50
the front and back and I was carrying 70
02:52
papers and I had to like line up the
02:55
addresses and the people and then to
02:57
boot I was going for speed within six
03:00
months my body trimmed down I hit this
03:02
growth spurt girls started taking some
03:04
notice I went through that awkward
03:05
puberty phase and um really woke up with
03:09
some confidence I remember there was
03:10
this moment between my two bike routes
03:12
where I just stopped and felt that I had
03:14
woken up consciously to life combined my
03:18
desire to want to take care of my
03:19
parents financially combine that with
03:20
this empowerment of I believe in me and
03:23
I was gonna carry that now till I got in
03:26
college and I remember the day I got
03:28
married so third day of school I met my
03:30
wife and nine months later we got
03:31
married and we had flown out to the East
03:34
Coast from Utah to get married cuz
03:36
that’s where she’s from and all my
03:37
family came out all my siblings except
03:39
for one and on that wedding day I
03:42
remember I felt like we were starting
03:44
for us something new and I felt like I
03:45
was ready to conquer the world I was
03:46
gonna take the world down I was gonna
03:48
win I was gonna claim everything that
03:50
was in my mind I had a plan I was gonna
03:51
be a doctor and I was gonna take care of
03:53
my family and my parents and that’s
03:55
where I entered the real world that’s my
03:59
history in a nutshell that brought me to
04:02
the point where all right I’m a married
04:04
man now I gotta get serious I gotta take
04:07
it down and you know how I’m gonna do
04:08
that I’m gonna excel in school I’m gonna
04:10
get good grades because anything I’ve
04:11
ever wanted I could effort day one of
04:13
that chemistry class I get there right
04:15
in front of the professor you know the
04:16
professors saying all right to a class
04:18
of 200 students my job is to fail 90% of
04:21
you grade you on a curve because most
04:22
you should not go into medicine I’m like
04:24
oh dude you’re speaking you’re speaking
04:27
my language that’s right we’re gonna
04:28
weed out 90% of these clowns and I’m
04:30
gonna rise up make this happen well fast
04:32
forward four months get to the end of
04:34
the semester and I got a C and a C grade
04:38
in and of itself is maybe not a bad
04:40
grade but if you want to be a doctor and
04:41
this is the start of a long science
04:43
career I sat down with my science person
04:47
that I’m supposed to sit down with my
04:49
career
04:50
advisor and and he looked at my grainy
04:52
said Chris this is not for you get out I
04:54
said
04:55
Kris Krohn don’t quit so I doubled down
04:58
I said I’m gonna figure this out so I
05:00
took the same class again
05:01
I got a tutor I worked my butt off and I
05:03
get to the end of the term and guess
05:04
what I’ve got a c-minus same material
05:08
did it again worked extra hard and got a
05:11
worse grade friends I was pursuing a
05:15
path that was not in my natural aptitude
05:18
and ultimately it was a crushing day
05:21
because when I talked to my career
05:22
counselor that time I had to admit he
05:23
was right it was like the first time in
05:25
my life I felt it was like the big it
05:27
was like the big balloon of excitement
05:28
for life that day got popped and I’m
05:29
like oh I’m stepping into this real
05:32
world where life sometimes just sucks
05:34
I felt hammered I remember walking home
05:37
that day feeling like crap and I went
05:40
home and I told my wife and was actually
05:41
nervous I was scared to tell her I don’t
05:43
think I can be a doctor it didn’t even
05:46
faze her she didn’t even blink she’s
05:47
like well I believe in you you’ll figure
05:49
it out I’m like really I kind of sold
05:51
you on this premise and I you know
05:53
wasn’t that kind of part of you falling
05:54
in love with him he’s like no so I knew
05:57
that at that point I had to figure
05:59
something out and the plans that I had
06:00
had for years was not going to happen
06:02
the problem was is that as I researched
06:04
all the different opportunities and ways
06:05
of how is gonna get where I wanted to go
06:07
I just remember feeling i sat down with
06:09
a different career counselor because now
06:11
I wasn’t going in the medical field and
06:12
he started putting options in front of
06:14
me like psychology and this and that
06:16
kind of thing and be good to become a
06:17
teacher and I started looking at all
06:19
these options and I remember how I felt
06:21
inside it was like have that pit my
06:23
stomach like oh what’s what’s this major
06:26
called and how much money can they make
06:28
well $60,000 but what’s this path and
06:30
how much can I make well $40,000 what
06:33
about that one eighty thousand dollars
06:34
I’m like how am I actually how am I
06:37
gonna take care of my two families
06:38
because that just doesn’t sound like a
06:40
lot of money to take care of one I
06:41
didn’t have a whole lot of real-world
06:42
experience with money but I knew that it
06:46
wasn’t gonna be enough and I remember
06:48
how sickening that really felt I don’t
06:50
know if you’ve ever felt that way before
06:51
where you once had dreams and you were
06:53
excited about life and then that bubble
06:55
got popped and then kind of deteriorated
06:57
but I’m so grateful for those moments
06:59
because they’re really what kick-started
07:01
my journey the
07:02
moment that truly changed my life was
07:03
when my wife and I ran out of money and
07:06
we were going into debt and heard her
07:08
checkbook had bounced didn’t have the
07:09
ability to buy groceries that day and
07:11
when I found her in that state of tears
07:13
from coming home from the grocery market
07:15
wasn’t able to buy food and in that
07:18
moment I felt like the crappiest human
07:22
being alive I was like oh I have never
07:25
felt so low in my life I am pathetic I’m
07:26
a horrible friend I’ve let my wife down
07:28
I’m a bad provider and I was working
07:31
full time again so grateful because all
07:37
of that is what led to my really big
07:40
transformation might lead to your really
07:42
big transformation because for me it was
07:44
a moment and that’s all it needed to be
07:47
it was a moment for me to decide I’m
07:49
going in a direction that I don’t like
07:51
it’s debt it’s no money it’s no
07:53
happiness I need to find a new path and
07:56
frankly I don’t need to be offensive to
07:58
any of you young people watching this
07:59
but college was only going to it wasn’t
08:02
going to give me everything that I
08:03
wanted it was going to give me a step in
08:05
the direction of what I wanted sometimes
08:07
we look at college like it’s the last
08:09
most important education of her life
08:11
it’s kindergarten compared to the
08:13
education that you need in life the real
08:16
world of Education that I would need
08:17
could not be found within the halls of
08:19
university and university is great for
08:21
people that if you want to be a doctor
08:23
you better be going to college right
08:26
like no one wants you to figure that out
08:27
in the back of the veterinary story so
08:29
um it all really came to a head with
08:32
feeling really crappy knowing that
08:35
things needed a change
08:36
and I decided that I would move heaven
08:39
or hell and do anything and everything
08:40
required not to live the next 40 years
08:42
in financial Lac in a manner I had seen
08:45
my parents do it that decision was a
08:47
really important moment because I had a
08:48
lot of crappy feelings inside but the
08:49
only thing that I had was this tenacity
08:51
it said I’m gonna mount up I’m gonna
08:52
rise up and I’m gonna conquer I’m gonna
08:54
figure out how to do this and four and a
08:56
half years later I was retired just
08:58
after graduating college but what really
09:00
happened that made the difference that I
09:02
would submit to all of you is the one
09:06
thing that we really need that we’re not
09:07
really trained that we need in fact we
09:09
don’t even know what we don’t know we
09:11
don’t even know what we don’t know that
09:13
we don’t even know that we don’t need
09:15
that we need to know if you follow me
09:16
there is this idea that the higher
09:18
education sometimes school gets in the
09:20
way of the higher education the higher
09:22
education ultimately for me came through
09:24
Mentors you want something in life and
09:27
you got to find the men and women that
09:28
have it and you got to find a way to get
09:30
into a relationship with them where they
09:32
can show you how to do it you got to
09:34
find a way to make an arrangement with
09:37
them somehow some way where they could
09:38
take you under the wing and whether they
09:40
can actually spoon feed you the critical
09:42
knowledge that will make the difference
09:42
because in the end it’s not always what
09:45
you know more often than not it’s
09:46
actually who you know and people are the
09:49
ones life is a business of people people
09:51
are the ones they’re gonna take you
09:52
where you want to go in life it’s it
09:53
translates and transcends systems and
09:56
and business formulas and and things
09:59
that have proven ly worked who are the
10:01
people that are gonna get you where you
10:02
want to go I found some people in my
10:05
life that when I found them they didn’t
10:08
know that I was looking for them and
10:10
they certainly did not want to work with
10:12
me the first man that I found my wife
10:14
and I were you know financially
10:16
struggling and our you know in church we
10:19
decided to take this kind of Church
10:21
evening class for marriage improvement
10:23
and on the fifth week it was on finances
10:25
and they had this guest speaker come in
10:27
that spoke very sophisticated ly and
10:31
there was something different about him
10:33
and so I wanted to approach him after
10:35
the class it’s like what is it about you
10:37
or what’s your career what do you do for
10:38
work and he hadn’t worked last ten years
10:40
of his life he actually just got back
10:41
from international traveling with this
10:42
young family and I found out that he had
10:45
done it through real estate investing
10:46
moment he said that I caught the bug it
10:48
just
10:48
I knew my path I knew what I needed to
10:51
do I just didn’t know what that really
10:53
meant so I started tracking him down
10:55
literally even drove out to the dudes
10:57
house and knocked on his door and he was
10:59
frustrated like you don’t have an
11:01
appointment you haven’t like what are
11:03
you doing here and I was begging for him
11:06
to teach me and in that same manner I
11:08
found two more mentors that year that is
11:11
road on their coattails and I was hungry
11:13
for anything that I could get I would go
11:15
where I needed about I’d get on any
11:16
plane that needed again I would do
11:17
anything required to figure it out at
11:19
the end four and a half years later
11:21
retiring the first time and then
11:23
creating this wealth and doing all these
11:24
great things in my life I think I’ve had
11:26
to chalk up what
11:27
at all possible it has nothing to do
11:30
with real estate it has nothing to do
11:31
with money it had to do with the desire
11:34
to be a self-made man it had to do with
11:38
this knowledge that no one else gonna
11:39
figure this out for me no one else is in
11:42
charge of my life the way I’m in charge
11:43
of my life no one else is gonna author
11:45
my future depends in my hand and the
11:47
book is blank and it’s up to me and so
11:49
my whole story yeah I created wealth and
11:52
real estate and I’ve created wealth in a
11:53
number of other industries and yes real
11:55
estate is my major backbone and yes you
11:58
can you know go to my website click the
12:00
link and learn from me and let me let me
12:02
teach you how to replicate what I’ve
12:03
done and I’ve done that for thousands of
12:05
people but the one thing that you’re
12:06
really gonna need beyond any of that is
12:09
do you really have a reason inside of
12:13
you big enough to motivate you to move
12:16
because if you do day in and day out and
12:18
move on your own unmotivated by anyone
12:21
else then you have what it takes to
12:23
achieve frankly just about anything
12:25
that’s inside of your bandwidth of your
12:28
potential none of us really knows how
12:30
long life is don’t really know if it’s
12:31
gonna be a long one whether we’re gonna
12:33
get old if it’s short but you’re alive
12:35
today and that’s a gift what are you
12:37
gonna do with it so many of us are
12:39
living beneath our potential because
12:41
we’re waiting for it to be handed out to
12:43
us for someone to reveal it to us for
12:44
someone to make it easy enough to make
12:46
it 3 simple steps listen the road to
12:49
real success in getting where you want
12:51
to go it might be the hardest thing
12:53
you’ve ever done but it’s actually why
12:54
you’re on this planet and that’s your
12:55
journey of being here so my invitation
12:57
for you is to figure out how to get
13:00
connected inside with that motivation
13:03
that says you know what this is my life
13:05
and I’m gonna make this happen sure I
13:08
might use Chris’s system or somebody
13:09
else’s system but that drive has got to
13:12
come from within and if you want to know
13:13
how to get it it’s just a choice are you
13:15
ready to start your journey of being
13:17
your own self-made success then I want
13:20
to invite you to click the link up here
13:21
and get in touch with me my
13:23
I’ve laid out a number of different ways
13:24
that we could play together ways that I
13:26
can mentor with you way that you can
13:27
work with me in my team ways that I can
13:29
get you extra deals listen real estate
13:31
has its tough parts and it can be hard
13:33
but that’s why I brought the team and
13:35
the supplies and the properties to make
13:37
it a whole lot easier for you if you’re

13:40
