He’s got a lot of experience under his belt, and in this episode of The Commercial Investor Podcast you’re going to hear his ideas for where to invest your time and money to build wealth that’ll sustain you for a lifetime.

Episode 30: The Real Estate Investing Bloodbath

If you’re investing in real estate right now, you’re leaping into a bloodbath filled with hordes of hungry, rabid, emotionally-driven investors.
