January Luncheon – 1/14/2021 Featuring Justin Williams

TOPIC: Life After Actively Investing: What I learned In 2020


His entire life Justin has dreamed of a life of financial freedom.  Where he could do what he wanted when he wanted and not have to worry or stress about money.  After investing in real estate for 14 years / flipping several hundred houses, and then spending 7 years mentoring other real estate and business owners Justin had reached all of the financial goals he had set out on and decided it was time to “retire” from active real estate investing and coaching.  

For 9 months he spent his time serving in his church, helping at his kids schools, surfing, playing pickleball and “living the dream” but once Justin had “arrived” and achieved everything he ever thought he wanted he realized this was only the beginning of his journey.  

Justin realized he needed to get back in his genius zone of building businesses.  He is now working towards building a Billion Dollar Software business.  It’s been an interesting experience building a business when you no longer need the money but continue to work hard to challenge yourself, and find different reasons for “why” you are doing what you’re doing.  

Justin resides in San Clemente CA with his beautiful wife and 3 amazing kids.

    Rehab Introduction at the Habitat for Humanity Building in Orem

    We had a great meeting at Habitat for Humanity.   Our incredible discussion on How to Save Money Doing Rehabs was a great topic. Our speakers and sponsors really shed some light on what to watch for when doing your rehabs.   A licensed contractor shared some important updates to that industry as it applies
    to rehabs and how to avoid costs when it comes to new requirements.  We also had a professional painting company and a HVAC
    company sharing some incredible information and a wonderful coupon on how to save money when doing your rehabs or updates.

    Make sure to attend upcoming meetings so you stay on top of what is current in real estate investing.

           Habitat for Humanity and the Re-Store

                They were our wonderful hosts of this month’s meeting!
                Did you know if you are pulling out cabinets or other items from a property you may be able to donated them to Habitat for Humanity?

                You can write off these donations to their Re-store and stop filling up the land fill full of items we can still use.

    These are a list of our speakers and sponsors, make sure to always use experienced individuals on your team.  In today’s economy we recommend always utilizing vendors who are certified and licensed.   Best of luck to you in all your rehab experiences.

    ROTH IRA’S and the Power Behind Them

    We had a great networking meeting last Friday.  Jodi Vawdrey was the speaker and she had some incredible infromation on how to utilize a ROTH IRA.  Check out her link in number two, she has a fun tool  that helps you determine when you will be a Millionaire.

    Here is the link:   http://jodivawdrey.nmfn.com/calculators.cfm

    Dear Utah Valley REIA members,

    Thank you for the opportunity to share information on the incredible Roth IRA conversion opportunity available in 2010.  This information is particularly valuable.  I have found that successful people have a strong network and  build a team of professionals to share information, ideas and support each other in their success, and I am proud to be on your financial services team and share this information with you as members of the Utah Valley REIA!

    1. I would love to mail you an estate planning case study that was not passed out at the meeting. Please email me that you want me to send you this information FREE of charge:  Jodi.Vawdrey@nmfn.com
    2. And here is a  link to several financial tools including a Roth IRA conversion calculator.  http://jodivawdrey.nmfn.com/calculators.cfm

    Of course, a modeling calculator provides limited basic information and an individual should meet with their tax and financial service professionals to evaluate and consider all aspects of a Roth IRA conversion prior to doing so.

    I am happy to be a resource to you and your members.

    Thanks again and have a great week!
