    $70,490.35 In January

    I'm really hoping this doesn't come across too salesy, but here goes anyway. Had my best month ever : I've been running my real estate company, laundromats and now documenting the whole process on youtube. Revenue was 60:40 in favor of my brick & mortar stuff, but youtube is exploding. It's...

    From being evicted to owning 93 rentals, my life story!

    Well , a good chunk of it. I was very pleased to be interviewed by Graham Stephan recently (One of the biggest finance/wealth guys on YT) about my rags-to-riches story going from being evicted to owning nearly 100 rentals AND having the landlord who kicked us out asking me if I'd ever take...

    HOT TOPIC I bought another laundromat

    My goal with this one is to do a lot of content specifically regards to buying underutilized property and using the internet and decent marketing techniques to significantly boost your business. This place was making 9 to $10,000 before the last owner died. The last owner did no marketing...

    HOT TOPIC 5yrs later, at 33 I've got a multi million dollar business

    And at least trying to throw up everything I can on my non monetized YouTube channel. View: https://youtu.be/AaiiecbFCNY I posted this elsewhere but figured I'd share my 5+ year ongoing story of buying rental properties to encourage members here. Personal Background Most of my...

    Buying & improving cashflow positive businesses (Laundromats)

    Hopefully this is the right place for this, I need to bounce my situation off a few brains. In October, I kind of fell into a odd deal to purchase two laundromats where I have quite a few rentals - I lost a bid on a hotel that I wanted to renovate by a whopping $500, and figured that if I...

    REAL ESTATE Finally evicted tenants from my $1,250 house after 4 months

    REAL ESTATE What a crazy year (The year I learned to ask)

    Started the year at 40 rentals. Have 72 at this second with enough to take me up to 85 in contract, set to close literally any day now. Hope to close em before the end of the year just so I can say I doubled, but who knows. This is the year I started seller financing on a bunch of stuff, it's...

    Buying a already profitable business, now to due dilligence

    I currently own/run a decently successful real estate rental company with a total of 71 rental units. Making great cash every month, equity and growth is pretty good. Recently I ran into a local business that has several sources of income just at one location. The owner is older and wants to...

    REAL ESTATE What would YOU like to learn about real estate investing?

    One of the projects I'm seriously taking on this year is to record the entire process of starting out, finding a cashflowing property, purchasing it, rehabing it , marketing it and earning residual monthly income from it. As of today I've bought 49 rentals since July 2013, with another 2 under...

    REAL ESTATE So, I closed my first 'wholesale' deal

    If you've followed my other thread(s) on the forum, you'd see that my big interest is in rentals. As much as I enjoy them, I HATE financing them, and have had to pass up on some great deals I've 'put together'. Here's what I mean by 'put together' which is what everyone has to do with real...

    REAL ESTATE If you could watch the whole process from day #1 to year #1, what would you want to see?

    Had a few people ask to do it, and would like to make a serious go of it in 2017. All I do is buy lower end real estate (Sub $50k) in my market of Central Ohio. Mostly the stuff that people are overly scared to buy or don't think they can make money from it. There seems to be alot of...

    10 Part essay on building a billion dollar company

    A business colleague of mine sent this to me. It's really fantastic in terms of outlining how companies get BIG and the process that some of the larger, explosive companies made it (Paypal, Linkedin) https://medium.com/notes-essays-cs183c-technology-enabled-blitzscalin One of the things that...

    I convinced my parents to buy a vending machine

    My parents have never been one to save money, invest it or really overall have any sort of long-term strategy. Unlike my brother and I, they have been mostly paycheck-to-paycheck for as long as I have been born, and for the most part do not have the mentality to look at business/opportunities...

    The fields are ripe for harvest, but few wish to participate

    Last night I again attended a local real estate (and business) investor meeting. One of the best choices I've made in the past year has been to seek out and attend such a group. The costs are low, it's a very minimal time commitment (one night a month) but the learning experience has been...

    REAL ESTATE I closed on a duplex I bought at auction for $9,000 today.

    I figured it might be something that would be of use to the forum. This really isn't intended to be a AMA thread, but if you have questions I'll be more than happy to answer about what I do with real estate. I operate in what in my mind is a interesting area, right outside of a major metro city...

    INTRO This looks like a fun place

    I started off in real estate 9 years ago with the dreams of one day converting from a salesperson position to development, as looking at things it seemed that's where the money was. It took quite some time, but I finally figured out the ins and outs of real estate investing, and some in terms...
