My ‘Inception’ Moment
I think I just had an ‘Inception’ moment. An Aha within an aha. Follow me for a minute. The first bubble hit me in a swag little one bedroom studio in NYC hanging out with two beautiful women. I was sitting there trying to console my friend who was having issues financially.
I sat and listed out all of the expenses and mapped out the past and current cash flows, passions, and current methods of producing drive. I quickly realized the issues and developed solutions.
How smart I am is the next thing I hear, to my confusion. I never took myself for intelligent. I mean, I’m sitting with two powerful and intelligent women. Were they trying to take advantage of me? I thought it over and brushed the idea off. They didn’t have to try so hard. The wine was pouring.
That was my first aha moment in nearly two years as I mapped out and rediscovered myself. A perfect storm knocked me off my feet and into a coffin filled with mercury like in, The Mummy. I was chained down for good measure, wouldn’t want this demon getting out. I fancied the idea of using my experience to help others, but as anyone who has allowed himself to be beaten, when you have gotten to the bottom, the top sure does look impossibly far.
I returned to my vacation.
Then another mutual friend of my mystery girls wanted help in his business growth. Business was starting to pick up. I had to make a choice. I shut them all down.
It’s February 2017 in Savannah, Georgia.
A lovely little place with lots of warm and friendly people. I was out on the town with my friend, a massive drinker and terrible person to have around if you value your liver. We were outside of a large nightclub downtown talking with our bouncer when my friend, who was hellbent on getting me to stay in Savannah, decides to let everyone know I am a business consultant.
Damn. Cause here I am an NYC kid dressed to kill. In Savannah, where they dress to grill. I was clueless to what would happen next. I begin giving business advice outside the nightclub to this guy with a passion for business but lacking the drive to make it happen. He was drowning trying to find someone to help him build HIS dream. I quickly dissected it all and reshaped it. Polished.
The large crowd outside the club was all watching me and listening, along with my friend, an animated character. Jaw wide open, as if to catch a bug. A Venus Flytrap. Ridiculous. “Omri, you know this whole entire crowd is listening to you right now.” My eyes opened to see it all. That was my aha moment. My turning point. Gott Consultants was born. And I have to tell you, the devil doesn’t sleep.
But wait… Didn’t I say it was deeper? Well, it is. I wouldn’t lie to you. My final aha was just a moment ago sitting in a bubble bath reading a business book. I saw the future. Saw it all. I saw my story inspiring others. My software impacting industries. My eCommerce experience helping regular people develop secondary incomes and for the more driven, doctors pay out of a home basement.
I saw my ability to shape and change the Real Estate industry with innovative techniques built for the future. I saw it because I made it. Let me help make your dreams come true too!
