The One Thing

“If you have your biggest dream about your future and what it will be for you for the next 20 years. Imagine your kids graduating from the best college and they say they don’t want to be a banker or a lawyer, they want to be an agent because I can make ten times as much and it’s much more creative and entrepreneurial. Think about the world that you deserve, who can create that. I believe Compass."
