182: Finding & Building Success- An Interview With Raymond Sjolseth


Who is Raymond Sjolseth?

Raymond Shoujeth has had the privilege of founding over 45 companies with 40 failures and five successful, eight-figure businesses. The majority of these companies were founded through real estate while not being in the industry at all. He is also the host of The Agent podcast, which caters to real estate professionals, and The Chicago podcast, which caters to his local community.

He and his wife operate in Chicagoland. They have five kids, two of which have special needs, and the family has three dogs.

As an investor of 30 years, Raymond has had many single-family homes across seven states.

Quotations from Raymond Sjolseth:

“I don’t have all the answers, but I have amazing support around me that can help me build a roadmap that works for what we need for our family.”

“Most people will stay down when they get knocked down. They won’t get back up. And I think that’s what I attribute the most to is the ability just to begin again. Sometimes I have to begin again every day.”

“I have problems and challenges, bad days and good days. And I have to make the decision to work hard. If I choose to be optimistic—not ignorant, not naïve—but optimistic, and focus forward, the chances of me having success are going to be much greater than being in a bad mood and sticking my head in the sand.”
