Lateef Warnick is Jacksonville Financial Advisor and CEO/ Founder of Concept YOUtopia which is your one-stop shop for Real Estate, Financial Services, Workplace Benefits and Business Networking. So why hire us?
“For the peace of mind you deserve!”
Essentially, any 18 year old with a license can sell real estate but is this who you truly want to manage your greatest investment? I didn't think so...
MY PLEDGE TO YOU:
“I’ll be your professional REALTOR®, financial expert & marketing specialist with a tireless work ethic who takes a holistic approach to not just meet your needs… but to exceed your expectations!”
For Lateef, real estate isn’t just a job… it’s his passion! He brings his wealth of knowledge and experience to assist all of his clients from the smallest to the largest with a great level of service, attention to detail and expertise. As a Licensed REALTOR®, he is the #1 marketer in the First Coast region from Jacksonville to St Augustine and aims to be a consistent top producer.
His career began at 17 in the U.S. Navy, originally as an enlisted Nuclear Engineer, quickly rising through the ranks to become a Naval Officer. After 10 years of honorable service, he entered the civilian workforce but took with him all of his lessons of leadership, time management, communication and efficiency.
He would briefly work in education as a Math & Science teacher learning great presentation skills and how to translate confusing ideas into simple language. He also gained vital experience through his family’s contracting business. His mother is a Licensed Realtor and his father has been a general contractor for over 20 years. As an investor, Lateef is able to recognize a home’s strengths and weaknesses for his buyers and sellers.
He then transitioned into a corporate career in sales as a Licensed Financial Advisor for many Fortune 100 companies like JP Morgan & Chase, Edward Jones, USAA, Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. He prided himself in his fiduciary responsibility, gaining his client’s trust, making smart investment decisions and managing his client’s assets as if they were his own.
It is with this mindset that he approaches his real estate business. He understands that his client’s homes are more than just a matter of dollars and cents; it is where they raise their families, experience life transitions and create many memories. As a renown Author, Social Entrepreneur & Holistic Living coach, he helps to consider the physical, mental and emotional aspects of buying or selling a home.
Lateef has a unique advantage over other real estate agents in that he has an extensive networking base through Concept YOUtopia From his coaching, publishing and financial background, he has a far reach to tap into potential qualified buyers with the assets to move quickly. He uses his vast experience to maintain relationships with high-earning colleagues in the financial industry, military, education field, health professions, law enforcement, business owners and very eclectic circles. Lateef has done and continues to do many radio interviews, discussion panels, charitable events & traveling as a social entrepreneur which benefits his clients: 1. by generating greater exposure for his clients selling homes and 2. keeping his "ear to the streets" for the earliest "ready to strike" opportunities for his buyers.
He remains competent on all the nuances and laws involved in real estate, goes the extra mile and helps to answer many questions most clients don’t even know to ask! Lateef’s consultative experience and entrepreneurial spirit helps him maintain an even-temperament, optimistic attitude and a positive outlook throughout every phase of the home sale or purchase. Give him a try! Not only will you NOT be disappointed… but you’ll be sure to refer your friends!
Know Thyself and know the answer to all questions... To Know Thyself is the purpose of a fulfilled life! Ask yourself, if this were your last day alive would you be happy with your life? Would you wish you had more time? Would you have regrets with how you lived thus far?
I know... no one wants to think about their mortality. Intellectually, we all know no one is promised tomorrow, yet we all live as if it is. We live in denial... we procrastinate... we live lackadaisically. But if you knew for certain you only had 24 hours to live what would you do differently? Would you make peace with all those you love? Would you try to check off your bucket list? Would you eat, drink & be merry? Or would you simply try to live in the moment and savor every last breath?
Now close your eyes, sit quietly and ask yourself "WHO AM I?” This is the most important question in life you’ll ever ask!
Yet many will go to their graves without ever finding a concrete answer to this question. Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, or lack thereof, this one question determines our careers, relationships, finances, health, happiness and the entirety of how we live our lives! All other pursuits in life are secondary to this burning question; all else can wait but your quest to truly “Know Thyself” cannot!
Money, homes, cars, romance, travel etc tend to take priority in our lives but should they? Scripture tells us "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." In other words, finding the Source of ALL - quenches every other desire!
Some of us may believe we already know who we are but if you strip yourself of your race, gender, job, nationality, hobbies, personality or accolades can you still answer the question? Your truth isn’t what is on the surface but what is buried beneath.
This book, therefore, is about YOU... or at least the REAL you! This real you is grander than anything your imagination can fathom. Within you resides all joy, bliss, happiness & fulfillment that is not dependent upon your outer circumstances.
• “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom!” Aristotle
• “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be!” Lao Tzu
• “You must become the change you seek in the world!” Mahatma Gandhi
• “The kingdom of God is within you!” Jesus
“Know Thyself” will attempt to bring the infinite laws of the cosmos into focus for you. By examining scripture, yoga, psychology, science & the Masters, it will help you gain greater CLARITY, EMPOWERMENT & TRANSFORMATION! We will bring the macrocosmic down to the microcosmic perspective as it pertains to man, the seven levels of consciousness experienced throughout life and the seven “unveilings” in Revelation towards man’s ultimate union with God. “Look within” is what all adepts advocated for realizing Truth and yet it is this message that is continuously overlooked. This is the subtle, universal knowledge of self, love, life, prosperity, health, living harmoniously and appreciating every day of your life!
Let go of the old you... This is the NEW you!
Take the first step… Your spiritual journey begins here!
You've been asleep... this is your smelling salts!
