Bean's 1st contest prep (Lecheek last 8 weeks)

So I need some input/advice whatever. First if you guys don't think this should be in this thread just say so ill remove it.
This is what I'm going through at the moment. I was presented quite an offer last Saturday night when I went out to dinner with my aunt and uncle, his kids my wife and son. He knows how much I hate my job but he knows how hard I've worked at it since I was 13-14 (family business). My uncle said " **** it, quit putting up with it and come work for me I want to retire in 3-5 years." He's 47.
He runs/manages commercial real estate and changed his career 14 years ago. He worked concrete up until he was about my age two kids and he was making about what I do. His father I'm law made him the offer he is extending me. He said he could work 24/7 right now if he wanted to. So basically the offer is this (I've yet to meet with him to go over fine details) he basically turns over all his management properties, which have monthly income coming in, to me. During this first year while I'm doing that he will coach train and help me get my lisence and teach me everything I need to know, and that his father in law showed him. This uncle has been like an older brother to me and I know he wouldn't get me in over my head.
My worry is that even though I believe my father would eventually be happy with this (as he never really wanted me to go to work where I do) but its to the point that he will be screwed for a bit without me. I do just about everything around there business wise including still regularly drive truck, which I'm sick of. My problem is a couple things, I haven't had a raise in like 8 years, my grandfather could just up and sell our business ( none of them get along), and also I'm not sure I want to do what my dad does as far as dealing with corporate etc. So I just feel bad leaving him hanging but at the same time I have to look out for my family and this is a hell of an opportunity IMO.
I would just like some thoughts or advice Thanks and sorry to derailIndependent

Hmmm. First and foremost you need to think of your family. If you are offered an opportunity to better your life and provide a better life to your wife and future children I would do so. Im sure your father would understand your position and although he might be disappointed at first he will understand deep down. Opportunities like this don't come along very often in life an d you don't want to miss out and ten years down the line regret not giving it a shot. Give a notice to your father and then get to work with the other job. Family will always understand. I quit a steady job to work for the railroad five years ago. Worked all over the place and it was tuff for my wife and kids.....but now I am settled back down and I am glad I too the chance be cause we are doing very well. Sacrifices must be made for the greater good sometimes.

Opportunities like this don't come very often. It sounds like you have someone who cares for you and will show you the ropes. If it eventually means more security for the family it something that may be worth the risk.

All other tests looked great

Dude, if pops is eventually going to be happy with it, and this will be better for the fam, you answered your own question already. Dad's gonna love you no matter what. I wouldn't pass on the opportunity.

Your Dad wants you to do better in life than he did. All fathers do, or should. So he won't or shouldn't begrudge you. He may be a little disappointed but he may surprise you and congratulate you on the change. Most important thing though is in the end he will be happy for you when you are doing better for yourself.

and man shall leave his parents and cleave unto his wife.....
immediate family comes first man. I would do anything for my wife and daughter and that includes decisions that my mother or in-laws wouldn't like. Opportunities like this don't come along very often in life, jump on it. But jump with a well informed idea of what your exactly getting into. Real estate is a great place to make money if you know what you are doing. My wife and I just bought our first rental property (closed on Dec 31st actually) and are already turning a profit. There will be many more to come for us as we have been looking and researching for a long time before finally making the leap. It is risk vs. reward but you can skew that risk scale with hard work and knowledge bro. Also congrats on the numbers man, things look to be on an upturn for you and your family!

It's a tough decision at first but really what it comes down to is what's best for your future. Bc your family will need you to be there for them and your Dad if he's like mine, will understand that your doing something for the good not to just hurt him but make a better future.

As it sits right now I'm meeting with my aunt and uncle for dinner with the wife this weekend to hash out the fine details. The management stuff will have to hold me over income wise while I train and learn the rest of the business. All his building are owned by him so it straight cash coming in monthly he just needs to know what I need to make to live and go from there. This opportunity is so surreal I can't wrap my head around it. It's going to be a lot of hard work which I'm already used to just the only difference is ill have to chance to reap the rewards income wise for that work instead of being promised things for years and taking on more responsibility yet getting nothing in return. Have a good night all I'm passing out gonna go wreak havoc on my back in the morning. 6 days till things begin to shred up with Oxy eca and c20. Lecheek and USP FTW!
