Cash flow, cartels, building a real estate empire, and everything in between—this is the story that many have yet to hear. The world of a real estate investor can seem glamorous. There are always so many properties, cash flow, retreats, speaking events, and jam-packed, money-making schedules that most nine-to-five workers would be envious of. However, what you’re seeing is the result, not the journey. What about the seven-day work weeks, the night shifts, the financial stress, the bad tenants, and the failures? This is what made David Greene what he is today.
To most, David Greene is the epitome of an entrepreneur. He owns a multimillion-dollar real estate portfolio, multiple cash-flowing companies, and hosts the best real estate podcast ever (we’re not biased). But just fourteen years ago, this was far from his reality. David was waiting tables, working at restaurants, trying to become deputy sheriff, and had no real estate to speak of. He sacrificed almost every weekend to make more money so he one day could own his schedule.
In this episode, you’ll hear precisely how David hustled for years to buy his first property, how his first tenant stole thousands from him, the long nights he spent working overtime to save up even more, and how eventually everything clicked, and he started building wealth at record speed. If you want an authentic look into the making of a real estate tycoon without the rose-colored hindsight, this is the episode to tune into.
