Episode Summary

Today on Wealthy Wellthy Wise I interview Amanda McMillan. Amanda is in the top 1 percent in the field of real estate. I’ve known Amanda for years and always held her in the highest regard as one of the best real estate professionals in the industry. Last year she sold over 50 million dollars in real estate. She’s a mom, a wife, and even an equestrian. Amanda consistently ranks among the top 50 agents in Chicago and has been in the top 1 percent of Chicago Realtors for closed volume and closed number of transactions every year since 2006.

In this episode Amanda and I focus on earnings as part of my ESI (Earn, Spend, Invest) financial model. She shares her mindset and practices for how she earns over a million dollars per year while still balancing being a mother and wife. Amanda leaves us with her overall strategy of how simplifying things usually works best.
