Paul Shughart is new to the real estate industry, but he has already established himself as an investor who is in it for the long haul. He is a self-taught real estate investor and he has learned from the best mentors through incredible networking and strong relationships. Paul’s expertise lies in his ability to create bids and proposals, thanks to his experience working in the telecommunications industry.

Paul joins me today to share how he got started in real estate and how he recovered from one of his first bad deals. He describes his long-term goals and why he values relationships over money. He then turns the tables and picks my brain regarding my wisdom on strategies for wholesaling and rehabs, cash flow and scaling a real estate business, marketing methods, and my thoughts on virtual wholesaling. 

“I’ve learned the value of relationships. It’s not always about the money. Once I got that through my head, things just started happening.” – Paul Shughart
