Let’s be honest: not everyone is trying to buy hundreds or thousands of properties. In fact – just a small handful of incredible deals can help build impressive wealth AND great income. That’s the story you’ll hear today as we speak with Joe “JD” Martin, a real estate investor who’s building wealth while working his full-time job.
As you’ll hear, JD had a rough start to his investing, losing over $100,000 on his first “deal,” but came back to create a stable, cash-flowing portfolio of single family houses that has given him financial freedom and over a million dollars in wealth. If that sounds like a plan you can get behind – don’t miss a moment of this powerful episode!
