Goodegg Investor Spotlight – Physician & Father Of 2

Welcome to another edition of our Goodegg Investor Spotlight, where we highlight members of our investor community living their Life by Design and offering inspiration through real life examples of what’s possible when people decide to invest in creating a better life. 

In this investor spotlight, you’ll hear directly from Goodegg Investor Jon Zhou – busy dad and physician.

Meet Jon

I’m originally from the East Coast but moved to California for training and settled in Northern California after meeting my best friend and wife here.

I enjoy the diverse culture and people here and do not miss shoveling my car out of the snow.

We have two boys, a toddler and a newborn, that keep us constantly busy. I’m very active and love taking my son out for hikes in the baby carrier and running around the neighborhood.

I’m proud to have carried our toddler up to the top of Angels Landing in Zion National Park! 

My wife is an avid gardener and grows exotic tropical plants and herbs that make her home cooking superb.

Living A Life By Design

For me, living a life by design means control over my time and the ability to support our family both in the short and long term.

It means the ability to travel and explore the world with my family as well as the ability to provide for our family and our two sons without worry.

Having two young kids has given me the perspective that life is not only about myself but raising the next generation to be good people. 

Passive Investing Journey

I first heard of syndications through multiple physician real estate blogs and facebook groups years ago.

However I had years of “analysis paralysis” where I only looked at deals but never got involved with a deal.

After a while, I found Goodegg and believed in the people behind Goodegg (Julie and Annie) and invested in my first deal about 3 years ago.

We have done 8 deals through Goodegg, and while it is always nice to have the passive cash flow monthly, it is also a way for me to invest for my family’s future outside of typical 401K retirement funds.

My goal is to keep investing in multiple deals annually and to do 1031 exchanges for deals that successfully exit so that the passive cash flow monthly will increase year to year.

Syndications open another method for me and my family to be financially secure, to have another avenue to invest and generate income outside of the stock market that is stable and consistent.

Now that I’ve invested, my mentality towards money is different now. Instead of finding ways to only spend money, when I get a bonus or a lump sum of cash, I always focus on how I can best invest this to generate future passive income and for that to multiply.

Advice For Fellow Investors

Life is short and it is easy to buy material things to make you feel good in the short run, but focus on using money to have control of your time and life.

Passive income, even if small to begin with, allows you to potentially work one less day a month, and then maybe one less day every 2 weeks, and eventually allows you to even be part time.

Analysis paralysis is normal but eventually you need to jump in and invest in a deal and trust in the sponsor is the most important part.

Vision Of The Future

When I look down the road 5, 10, or 20 years, I hope to be an involved husband and father. To be able to go running, hiking and camping with our two boys and my wife using time that I control. 

And lastly, to be able to control my work shifts to work less in part because of the multiple streams of passive income.

Thank you, Jon! We couldn’t be more grateful for you, and we’re honored to play a small part in helping you realize your ideal life by design.
