When I picked up “Who Not How” by Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy, I was struck by its profound simplicity and power. The book introduces a shift from the daunting question of “How can I do this?” to the liberating thought of “Who can help me achieve this?” This concept isn’t just a strategy; it’s a transformative approach to life and business that resonates deeply with my journey.

As a wife, mother, and entrepreneur who daily navigates the complexities of Real Estate Market, being an investor, and being a founder of a purpose-driven brokerage, the ‘Who Not How’ philosophy has been a cornerstone of my growth and success as I’ve transitioned from a person that owns a couple properties to running a 7 figure business. 

Here are ten reasons, inspired by excerpts from the book and my personal experiences, why embracing the mindset of “Who not How” can unlock unprecedented freedom and achievement in your life.

  • 1. How to Maximize your Potential: Imagine the exponential growth when your vision is amplified by the brilliance of others. My journey in real estate investing transformed when I shifted focus from solo efforts to collaborative achievements.
  • 2. Team Work Makes the Dream Work: How much of your life are you trying to manage alone? Delegating and building strong relationships multiply your successes and distribute the weight of challenges.
  • 3. The Power of Transformational Relationships: Viewing relationships as investments rather than costs opens doors to remarkable returns and a lifetime of connection. My collaborations in business have not only propelled my success but have also fostered a supportive community.
  • 4. Investment in Freedom: Albert Einstein’s words resonate with my belief that true greatness stems from the ability to work in freedom, a principle that real estate investing has profoundly exemplified in my life.
  • 5. Confronting the Ultimate Definition of Success: Success isn’t just about doing what you love; it’s about minimizing time spent on tasks you detest. Delegation has allowed me to focus on aspects of my work and life that truly bring me joy and fulfillment.
  • 6. Escalation of Commitment: Every investment in your goals increases your commitment to them. By focusing on ‘who’ can contribute, you deepen your investment and expand your commitment to success.
  • 7. What does a Leader really do?: As a leader, my role is to define ‘what’ needs to be done, not ‘how’ to do it. Empowering others to find their methods fosters innovation and ownership.
  • 8. Creating Meaningful Connections: Building relationships based on mutual value and respect has been key in my network of real estate professionals, investors, and mentors.
  • 9. The Buyer’s Mindset: Adopting the mindset of being the buyer, not the seller, in every interaction has positioned me as a decision-maker, enhancing my autonomy and influence.
  • 10. Collaboration Over Competition: The lesson that collaboration is not cheating, but rather the essence of success in business and life, has been a game-changer for me, especially in the competitive field of real estate.

This journey from hustle to harmony isn’t just about achieving more with less effort; it’s about redefining what success means and how it’s attained. It’s about creating a life where your mental health, personal growth, and professional aspirations are in alignment. In my life, real estate investing has been a vital vehicle for this transformation, providing the financial freedom and flexibility to live according to my values and goals.

If you’re seeking a path that offers both financial prosperity and personal well-being, consider how shifting your focus from ‘how’ to ‘who’ can open new possibilities. And remember, this isn’t an overnight change but a strategic, intentional journey toward the life you desire to live. Let’s navigate this path together, embracing the power of collaboration, delegation, and strategic investing to create our harmonious success story.
