3 Things We Learned From Mitch Stephen

  • No matter how much money we have access to, we should never use it to buy houses. Have creative strategies in place and use private money.
  • Use the money generated from temporary cash strategies to fund ‘forever’ strategies. All the money we make from temporary strategies should be put back to work.
  • One of the best places for us to invest in is a storage facility, where we can avoid too many overhead costs.

On this episode, we discussed how it’s possible to keep our businesses running smoothly even in times of recession. We spoke about the importance of using private money sources, and explained why it’s vital to have a good understanding of local laws and act with integrity.

We also discussed:

  • The challenges investment books don’t prepare us for
  • Why it’s important to learn from others in the real estate investing space
  • How to handle difficult situations- such as dealing with con artists
