About Craig Cecilio:

As the founder and CEO of DiversyFund, Craig’s mission is to disrupt the traditional real estate investment space by providing investors from all socioeconomic backgrounds the chance to build wealth.

Episode highlights:

  • The life of an entrepreneur is busy, and when you are moving all the time, it can be hard to pause and look back. However, getting that perspective can help you assess if you are still heading in the right direction (whatever that means to you). (01:34)
  • Everyone has something to teach, and if you are open to meeting new people, you will be able to accumulate a lot of knowledge over time. (04:00)
  • You don’t have to do things the same way other people do them. If you think differently, see it as a blessing, not a curse.(9:43)
  • It’s important to understand your strengths so that you can build a team around you who can fill in the gaps and you can focus on what you do best. (19:23)
  • Choosing three things to focus on every day will make you a more effective entrepreneur because you will be less distracted. There are always lots of things to do, but time blocking will ensure that you have time for all of them. (24:35)
Craig’s best advice for entrepreneurs:
 “It’s not just about yourself, it’s about how you build a team around your strengths.” (19:33) Being an entrepreneur is not a solo journey. The better you understand yourself, the more equipped you will be to surround yourself with a team of people who complement your skill set.
