CFD 104 – Fearless Real Estate Investor Joe Fairless Talks about How Dangling Carrots Helped Him Move Forward in his Big Deals.
Anyone who works with me knows I move quickly. I’m happy to say I’m not the only one. Talking to Joe Fairless showed me that he’s an entrepreneur after my own heart. Of course, there are differences, and that’s just fine. We all get to our goals in different ways. Joe likes Subway and I like Starbucks, so that’s different. He’s from Texas, having graduated in 2005 from Texas Tech, and I just have a PhD (public high school diploma). While our paths to investing in apartment buildings is completely different, we have a few things in common.
That’s what we discuss in this Cashflow Diary podcast episode. Listen in as this former New York ad man talks about perspective, changing his mindset to keep reaching for bigger and bigger goals, networking with people who would become his private capital investors, and his transition to becoming the guy he is today. In short, he got into Real Estate Investing after putting his first $1,000 in savings into a low-interest CD and received a check for $18 after the bank held his money hostage for 12 months. He knew there had to be a better way, so he explored Real Estate and started investing in single-family homes. Over a period of a few years he entered into larger and larger properties, deals and goals. Listen in and learn how this not-so-average Joe went from being an underpaid ad guy to a high-earning Real Estate Investor, entrepreneur, soon-to-be author and business owner. Listen Now.
