Interestingly Weird Fact?
I’ve always been a big fan of the underdog and always want to help them.
In business oddly I take up these causes on a mission to help the underdog.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
I grew up relatively poor.
When 16 years old I saw an infomercial from a real estate guru, got his book, read 3 chapters, put it down.
My mom picked it up, 2 years later when getting ready to graduate, my mom said, “Why don’t you go to this real estate seminar” so I did with my friends.
I went to the seminar and by the end of the weekend I was the only one left (my buddies went to the beach).
I enrolled in Century 21 real estate school and got my real estate license my first year in college and started selling real estate.
Started working with first time buyers and investors.
Bought property at age 20 and had my first investment property.
Been investing alongside ever since.
Years ago after I sold my real estate company I started a real estate investment business, been doing that for the past 11 years.
Big Reason Why?
My first big why was I didn’t want to be poor.
My big vision now is on the real estate side, helping people escape Wall Street (modern day version of organized crime).
I wanna help investors get control of their financial futures.
Just spreading the word about what people can do for their business and how they can grow their business.
