The Nick Chaconas Experience

A Journey of Wealth & Well-Being

From "aha" to "oh crap ," I'm sharing everything on my journey as an investor.

My name is Nick Chaconas. Just an ordinary guy who decided I wanted something more.

"My family deserves better. I'm capable of so much more. I'm tired of living a mediocre life as I trade time for money."

That's how it all started. I was sick and tired of the life I was living, with all the wrong dialogue playing on repeat in my head.

In early 2021 I committed to leave the life of "just being a realtor" behind and become a real estate investor .. and to document the journey from brand new real estate investor to having consistent $20,000+ months!

Bono Knows Real Estate

February 02, 20243 min read

Dreaming Big, Doing Bigger

Author Denis Waitley says “It’s not who you are that hold you back, it’s who you think you’re not.”

U2’s Bono commented years ago “What turns me on about the digital age, what excites me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing. You see, it used to be that if you wanted to make records of a song, you needed a studio and a producer. Now, you need a laptop.”

In the world of real estate investing, these quotes echo a profound truth: the journey from dreaming to doing is not just a step but a leap—a leap made possible by the mindset and actions of those who dare to make it.

The Dream

Just like every other investor .. for me, it began with a dream.

The dream of financial freedom .. the aspiration to leave a lasting legacy .. the desire to provide better for my family .. the dream of time freedom.

My dreams, as vivid and compelling as they might be, are just the starting point.

They are the fuel that propels me forward, but fuel alone is not enough to reach our destination.

The Doing

Doing is the hard part. Doing is where dreams meet reality. Doing is where dreams can easily turn into nightmares.

Doing is where my Heroic Self kills Little Nicky in order to take the next step on my journey.

Doing is characterized by action, persistence, and a willingness to learn from my successes and setbacks.

Closing the Gap

Closing the gap between dreaming and doing requires more than just desire—it demands a plan, a strategy, and the courage to act.

Closing the gap requires GRIT.

On our daily calls, I see that the most successful investors in ACS and Partner are those who embody the principle of perseverance. They are the ones who, despite challenges and uncertainties, remain committed to their goals. They understand that in the dynamic world of real estate investing, adaptability is key.

They don't just dream; they do, adapt, and then do some more.

Waitley and Bono inspire me not just to dream big, but to be aware of who I tell myself I am and to act decisively.

I am someone who embraces the challenges, seizes the opportunities, and commits to my journey .

The world is vast and filled with potential—your dreams are valid, and your goals are achievable.

It's time to turn those dreams into your reality.
