BLACKBORG

Story

A snapshot of who we are, and how our own financial freedom journey can help reshape yours for the better.

After graduating university, Jessica and Keith Blackborg moved to San Francisco. Keith started with his career at Deloitte while Jessica worked in corporate marketing and sales. A few years later both moved to Dallas for a big job promotion for Jessica and it is where they bought their first rental house and flip at the same time.

Keith and Jessica dated a long time before Jessica finally found her engagement ring in a treasure chest at the bottom of a shipwreck dive in Florida. A year and half later they went back to their favorite city and they married on a beach in San Francisco.

In time, Jessica
transitionedout of
corporate sales to a
job as the financial freedom
 program manager for a real estate education
and mentoring company. She learned a lot about real
estate and bought and managed rentals on the side. Eventually,
she quit that job to build their full-time real estate business with rentals, flips, wholesaling, owner finance, and eventually commercial investments in hotels and apartments.

In the meantime, Keith served as the director of acquisitions for a hedge fund that transacted the largest private sale of homes in US history. Around the same time, he started his own CPA firm and developed a following serving high net worth real estate investors. He mastered complex tax strategies allowing clients to legally save ~5-10% of their income in taxes each year. His personal investing experience, deep tax knowledge, wide network, and breadth of industry expertise
allowed him to mentor clients in business making their
whole operation more efficient
and profitable.

                                Jessica is originally from Honduras and moved from a poor village to               the USA when she  was young. At a mastermind group, Jessica shared her dream to build a school and help the people of Central America, similar to how her family had been helped. Keith shared in this dream, but in their mind it would likely happen when they were old and retired. However the mastermind group challenged their thinking and introduced a project in Guatemala where they could get involved now. They went on a one week mission trip that same year and are now intimately involved with the organization and have made several more extended trips since.

Through hard work, dedication and by the grace of God, Keith and Jessica achieved their goal of financial freedom and became millionaires by the age of thirty. Overtime they transitioned their active investments to passive. They have experience with domestic and international investments including real estate, lending, startups, stocks, and commodities. Their passive income exceeded their living expenses. But uncertainty about the future caused them to continue working longer than needed.

If Keith and Jessica weren’t traveling then they were working. Despite empowering his staff, Keith could never completely get away from his work. Strain on their marriage grew and divorce was considered. Eventually Keith
sold his CPA firm and retired. The loss of identity tied to business caused
Keith to go soul searching.

In the two years that followed, Keith and Jessica traveled the world. Reconnecting in marriage was a long process of multiple breakthroughs through understanding, forgiveness and healing. Ultimately, a foundation
 on Jesus and the support of other believers saved their marriage. That
 said, life still has its struggles, they don’t “have it all together” but they
 have learned to embrace the trials and view them as opportunities for
 growth.

Travel ignited romance and resulted in their first child, an answer to
prayer. Starting a family has brought new life, struggles and excitement.

During the travel and soul searching, Keith and Jessica dreamed about
thefuture and what was next. Financial Journey is a result of those
dreams and the manifestation of their passion to come alongside other
 people and share “rich and abundant” life together.
