You know how I love stories about part-time real estate investors that make the leap from employee to full time entrepreneur. Today I have one of those success stories. My guest is Seth Williams of REtipster.
Seth has been a guest on my show before. If you missed that podcast you might want to check it out. In that episode, we talked about flipping land and building a successful real estate investing business while working a demanding full time job. Look for that link below.
In today's show we switched gears. Seth talks about leaving his job in commercial banking (and that nice secure paycheck) to enter the world of full time entrepreneurship. Has he ever regretted that decision? I'll let him tell you about that. Read the rest of this entry →
I have another great interview today in my “Escaping the 9 to 5 How I Did It” series with fellow real estate investor Brandon Turner. If you are one of those folks who are still trying to make your “escape” from your job so you can invest in real estate full time, I can promise that you will be inspired by his story.
In addition to being a full time real estate investor, Brandon is a senior editor at BiggerPockets.com. He is also a former banker, guitar player and world traveler. Part of Brandon’s motivation for building this business has to do with his love of travel. Like so many of us, this business is about more than real estate. It’s about creating the life you love.
Back in April of this year, I interviewed my friend and fellow entrepreneur Carey Buck for my “Escaping the 9 to 5; How I Did It” series. I promised to check in with Carey periodically to see how she was progressing, and I have an update for you today.
When we last talked, Carey had a job, a real estate investing business and a growing ATM business. Carey’s goal at that time was to be completely out of her “JOB” by December of 2012.
If you remember the last video, her bosses had just agreed to let her cut back her full time hours so that she could work part time. Carey wanted to focus on growing her very profitable ATM business.
Now just a few months later, Carey has officially escaped the 9 to 5. It didn’t happen the way she imagined it, but today she is a “free woman”. If your goal is to leave that “JOB” behind, you are not going to want to miss this video.
I will put a link to the original interview under the video just in case you missed it.

I have another great interview for you today for my “Escaping the 9 to 5; How I Did It Series”. I had the pleasure of spending some time with Jeff Kowalczuk from Columbus, Ohio yesterday. Jeff is a twenty something, full time real estate investor that has been investing almost a decade now. He has wholesaled close to 200 deals!
Jeff has built a successful business in Columbus by creating a niche with turn-key properties that he sells to not only many out of state investors but international buyers as well. Like most successful entrepreneurs, he has had his share of “learning experiences” along the way.
After you watch the video be sure to stop by Jeff’s blog “Jeff Knows Houses. You will find a lot of information and great resources. Jeff is also going to be rolling out his coaching program in the future, so be sure to watch for that.
He also has some “freebies” for you over there. I’ll put the link below the video.
Today's interview is with a young investor named Chris Bruce that is both smart and savvy. After spending a few years “enjoying life” he got down to business and built a success real estate wholesaling business in Tampa, Florida.
Chris is a full time investor that also coaches students across the country on how to replicate his success. If you will stop by his blog after your watch the video he has something to get you started. He has a FREE 5 day course on “How to Make a Fortune Flipping Homes”. I'll put the link to the blog” below.
I have another great interview for you today in my “Escaping the 9 to 5; How I Did It” series.
I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with Bill Walston from Johnson City, Tennessee. Bill is a full time real estate investor, a coach and a mentor. He is also a much sought after tax strategist. Bill has degrees in accounting and finance as well as a Master’s degree in Tax Law. This guy really knows his stuff!
