Brett Iwanowicz was skeptical about joining a high-level mastermind at first because he was in a one-sided business partnership for seven years and that relationship really burned him when it was over. However, after being part of ASCEND, Brett finally feels like he’s home. Learn more about Brett and his story on this week’s episode!

Key Takeaways:

  • Brett always wanted to be on Alex’s show and doesn’t understand why he just didn’t ask him.
  • When Brett first started his entrepreneurial journey, he had to shift his mindset.
  • When it comes to working with someone, you want to serve them, not yourself.
  • Alex never had a sales process until he went through John Martinez’s Real Estate Investors Sales Academy.
  • What was Brett doing before real estate?
  • Brett’s first real estate partnership was very one-sided. It lasted for seven years and it made Brett feel very defeated once it was over.
  • Brett grew up without a father and he put a lot of energy into that partnership as he was hoping he could fill that gap.
  • It made Brett distrust partnerships after that. Even after joining Lifeonaire, it still took Brett a long time to realize the people in the community were for real.
  • Brett had to work hard to find his tribe. You really have to work hard to find your people.
  • When Brett became committed to his personal development, he was committed and nothing was going to stop him. He was more committed to his success than the fear of failure.
  • There is always purpose in pain.
  • If you have personal issues, they’re affecting your life, your happiness, and your business!
  • Why does Brett love ASCEND?
  • By Brett being vulnerable, people would come up to him and tell him how they needed to hear his message.
  • No matter how difficult something is, you can still have fun. Life’s a journey!

  • When you have the strong desire to succeed, it’s incredible what happens next.

“What happened after the partnership ended is I worked really, really hard hoping to one day get to my goals of being a real estate investor, but I burned myself out.”

“It took me about a year into Lifeonaire where I mentally walked through that these people were real and they were genuine and authentic, and they want to help you.”

“If I can give anyone advice, enjoy the ride.”
