Keith Yackey has achieved massive success in real estate, investments, and coaching, but he hasn’t always been the focused and intentional version of himself that I know today. We discuss two major events that shook up his routine and made him realize that he needed to make major changes. We talk about how he took the leap from being a pastor and got into flipping houses, created a network in the construction industry, and eventually flipped 200 houses in his first two years in the game.
While Keith fostered an extremely successful career, his role as a husband and father took a backseat, and his wife left him. Instead of giving up, he learned how to love himself and prove to his wife that he could be the man that she needed him to be, and their relationship is now stronger than ever. Keith shares his tips for men who are finding themselves in the position he was in five years ago and the importance of integrity, discipline, and self-respect when it comes to winning your partner back.
