Jared recently quit his job as an oil & gas attorney to pursue entrepreneurship, real estate investing, and podcasting full time.
He has been flipping houses on the side from his full time job as an attorney for three years, and was miserable at work.
Jared was drained mentally, and ready to rekindle that entrepreneurial spirit he had throughout his life.
Jared is a fellow Weird Entrepreneur.
Interestingly weird fact:
My first business in high school was selling beer bongs, I sold hundreds in a year.
How my entrepreneurial journey all began:
Went through college, had a good time, didn’t do much selling, just briefly sold t-shirts.
My journey ebbed and flowed.
I went to law school, had a great time, got a job in oil and gas.
On February 6th of 2015 I quit my job as an attorney to podcast about house flipping.
My college education cost me $16-20K per year, and with law school and student loans overall financially $100-120K.
Biggest Temporary Defeat:
Contractors, lots are great but many suck.
Giving them to much leeway so they take advantage.
Weirdest Breakthrough Experience since launching podcast:
I realized how important it is to build a community/tribe off your thoughts.
Guest on show, connect with them, engage and grab other peoples knowledge.

Amping up real estate investing and continue podcasting.
