My guest today on my podcast “Let’s Talk Real Estate Investing” is Danny Johnson. Danny is someone that has built a very successful business flipping houses in San Antonio, TX. A lot of you probably know him from his popular blog FlippingJunkie. Danny and his wife Melissa have 5 children, and they have been investing in real estate for 10 years.
Danny got a corporate job in computer science when he graduated from college. Like a lot of other entrepreneurs, he quickly discovered he really didn’t like working for someone else. His dad was rehabbing houses at that time, and Danny saw how much his dad loved what he was doing. However, it was tough leaving his good paying job so he invested part-time for about 3 years.
We covered a lot of information in this podcast so grab a cup of coffee and get ready to learn. You can find a sampling of what we covered in the show in the “Show Notes” below.
