Have you ever heard the saying, “Bad things come in threes?” Well, I’m sure you have. You may have even experienced it yourself, where you wonder, “Why me? Why is this thing happening to me right now when I’ve already got all these other terrible things happening?”
For Casanova Brooks, award-winning real estate agent, investor, speaker and author of Real Estate: Play the Game Like the Winners, that’s how he felt when he lost his mom, his job and his home all within a matter of weeks.
It was a lot to go through, but Casanova didn’t let it defeat him. Instead, he focused on the next steps and kept going because he saw the potential in the things he was building – relationships, a business, a future, a legacy.
And today, he’s joining us to share his journey and the wisdom he’s gained from his “bad things come in threes” journey to survival. Even as a young boy, Casanova had the ability and natural energy to build relationships, and as he says, “I first started with the question of what can I do to serve more?” So now, let’s dive in and learn how he’s gotten to where he is today.
