We had the good fortune of connecting with Deznick Ellis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Deznick, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
First I created a vision board. I’m a dreamer I have lots of thoughts and ideas on my mind at all times, I put literally every big idea I had on my vision board along with small goals that pretty much led to the big goals. Then I started watching motivational videos on YouTube every morning on my way to work. Then I started to apply pressure to my goals on my vision board and repeated everyday and little did I know I had created a routine and then things started falling in place. The biggest impact was my 9 to 5 I hated being told what to do when and when I can’t take vacations etc. so I started saying I’m going to build my own business where I can do when and what I want when I want to

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Starting your own business is not easy at all it takes courage to put yourself out there and it takes hard work to build it up, and even more hard work to believe in your vision and not give up. One thing I do is I try to motivate others who I see starting or who might hit me up asking questions. The hardest part is staying consistent and keeping the momentum going. When you first start you’re going to be motivated but the hardest part for me at least was once everything didn’t go my the way I thought it would and I had to still have faith in myself and my brand. I just want to share that it’s ok it happens just make sure you don’t quit because you’ll look back like dang if I would’ve kept going I’d be way much more ahead than I would after restarting. Also follow me on Instagram and Facebook at DreamOnEllis if you need motivation and check out my website at WWW.DreamOnEllisRealEstate.com

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would probably take them To the ice bar for night life because it reminds me of Chicago it also has good music and the food is good and drinks and hookah can’t go wrong. But other than that I’ll probably go fishing or to 6 flags for the thrill.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to shout out Darrin Smith my real estate mentor who taught me everything I needed to know to get started. Also my 9 to 5 flipping houses family for the daily motivation I need to keep going. The book Rich dad poor dad and also ERic Thomas because his videos is what put the fire under me and has kept me lit every since.
