Transitioning from the NFL to Real Estate Investor Superstar with Dean Rogers – Episode #392

My guest today is former NFL player, Dean Rogers. Get ready to learn what the #1 trait is that you must have to successfully make the transition from the NFL (or any other career) to becoming a real estate investor superstar in your area.

One important thing you will discover in this show is how this self-proclaimed “underdog” used this to his advantage to excel along the way. Real estate is very much a team sport like football, and Dean talks about how he wishes he had focused more on networking and collaboration earlier in his career. (Don’t we all?)

Dean Rogers began his career in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers. Dean soon realized that if he kept playing his health would be at stake. After walking away from the NFL, he has been in the real estate industry since 2013 leading him to build a successful business in California. Since then, Dean has flipped and wholesaled hundreds of houses and has a rental portfolio of eight figures. He is passionate about real estate and helping others learn how to build wealth and freedom.
