As a real estate investor, wholesaler, and house flipper, attending the Flip Hacking Live event can truly transform your life – and your business. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity and pleasure to share my story and experience on the stage at this event with some of the most successful and inspirational speakers and experts in the industry.

On today’s episode, I share my presentation during the Flip Hacking Live event. I cover various topics ranging from how I got started, fell, and got back up to how my team and I are working together to sustain the growth of my business. I share how the economy crash of 2008 affected me financially and mentally and explain what business owners should consider as an investment and cost. I also share some numbers regarding marketing performance and explain how we filter the right deals as well as explain what it means to let your team make mistakes and how you can prevent being the bottleneck of your company.
