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!

Embracing the Unexpected in Life and Business

January 26, 20243 min read

Growth Lies Beyond the Obstacles
Have you ever found yourself meticulously planning every step of trip or adventure or new business venture, only to be met with the unexpected?

Whether it's starting/running a business, diving into personal growth, maintaining relationships, or just about anything else you can think of .. life is guaranteed to throw nasty Pedro Martinez style curveballs our way.

It's in these moments of unforeseen challenge that remind me of Ed Mylett’s goto quote: "Everything happens for you, not to you."

For me, this is more than just positive Pollyanna thinking; it's a strategic approach to my life’s journey.

In the realm of real estate investing … a sudden market downturn (like we experienced just last year) or an investment not yielding the expected returns (ie: George St and Coastal Hwy) isn't just a setback – it's an opportunity to learn, adapt, and grow stronger.

It teaches resilience, flexibility, and the art of finding silver linings.

Hannover is teaching me this lesson at this very moment.

As a reminder .. I found a buyer back in early December and he backed out on Dec 30th.

Damn!

Then found another buyer on January 6th that was willing to pay $20,000 more than the first buyer.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

And then the appraisal came back $10,000 UNDER the contract price AND required some repairs to the property.

Because of the contract I have with the seller that 1-2 punch landed squarely in my gut.

Years ago, I would have cussed up a storm, played the victim and complained to anyone within ear shot.

Last week, I said “It is what it is” gathered my tools, went to Home Depot to get the necessary materials needed and went to the property to make the repairs.

With the repairs completed and signed off by the appraiser, we are on schedule to close tomorrow.

The appraisal happened for me, not to me.

The next time life veers off the expected path, remember: it's happening for you.

Each twist and turn is an opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve into a more resilient, insightful, and fulfilled individual.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's about learning to dance in the rain.
