Terance Fulton started his career in building his financial empire when he was just 9 years old, pumping gas for money.  His habit of earning money on the side never left him as he grew up; he sold candy and chips in middle school, and sold shoes when he got older.

Although Terance made a good living with his day job, he knew he could do better. That’s when his friend pitched him ideas on real estate investing back in 2008 when the market just crashed. His friend told him it was the best time to buy, so he believed him, not because the sales pitch was great, but because he didn’t know anything about real estate. He spent the first few years learning about the industry and market, and by 2014, he took the plunge and became a real estate investor. By April 2015, he quit his job to focus exclusively on his real estate business.

Today, Terance tells us his life story, his rough upbringing, and how he got into real estate investing. He shares the things that inspired him to change gears and explains how he runs his real estate business.
