Snapshot Round:

  1. What is your number one failure in real estate? I lost $70,000 in a house because I bought it because it was right next to a railroad track. And I didn’t know how deadly railroad tracks were to houses.
  2. What is the number one thing that has contributed to your success? My military background and the way that I was raised as a kid from my dad; leadership.
  3. What is the one nugget of investing knowledge you want to give us? Take action, just go out and do something. 
  4. What is your dream? Money is not going to get you very far. Money is just a means to something. Now it’s about kind of getting some of my time back.
