- Do you love your job that doesn’t pay you enough?
- If you had the option, would you fire your boss tomorrow?
- Have you ever wondered what might happen to your position if the company you work for today was acquired by or merged with another company?
I spent 20+ years in Corporate America climbing the corporate ladder, trying to become rich and wanting to building wealth. I discovered an amazing way to build generational wealth for our family while being focused on the family and producing multiple streams of income, all while excelling at my W2. Too much information to dive into on the About page, but keep reading because I want to tell you a little bit more about what you can get here.
Now, after 6 years of actively investing we have accumulated 328 units in our portfolio, left the W2 world and have more time to focus on raising our 3 amazing and beautiful kids. No more worries about who my next boss is going to be, what may happen during the next merger/acquisition and due to our investing efforts, our net worth and cash flow has exponentially exploded.
As we started investing in real estate and immediately seeing the success it had on our net worth and truly building wealth for our growing family, I felt the need to share these practices and ideas to help everyone, especially young & growing families, that everyone can successfully invest in real estate while working a fulfilling and successful W2 job.
That’s why I started W2 Capitalist. If you’re looking to transform from being just a corporate drone and discover what it takes to become the W2 Capitalist you were meant to be, you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re ready to start your journey, I invite you to join our community, check out my podcast, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel. You’ll learn from mothers, fathers, husbands and wives just like yourself who have taken a fundamental shift in the way they are building wealth for their families but also excelling at their W2 careers.
THERE IS ONLY UNIQUE THING ABOUT ME…
Grew up in a small town (Alabama), son of a (now retired) Fireman and Medical Office Manager. Small high school graduating class (88 total graduates), 2.5 college GPA and football walk-on for the Jacksonville State University Gamecocks, MBA from Ellis College, met my wife while we were contestants on a reality TV show (The Catch: Costa Rica) and I was laid off May 1, 2020 from my W2 due to the Rona. Oh yea, love me some dad jokes.
OUR VERY FIRST RENTAL PROPERTY
As you can see in my timeline above, I had what I now call a false start in real estate investing. What I want to help you not to do, simply because it put an 8 year pause on our investing efforts. When I refer to our very first rental property, this little gem below is what I’m talking about:
A one bedroom, one bath 600 square foot foreclosure that we purchased for $22,000. We put $9,000 into fixing it up and the moment it was ready we placed a tenant paying us $600/month. You can read the full article here. Now, we’re up to 328 Units just 6 years from what we called “The Little Yellow House”.
Don’t be a corporate drone. Learn the EARN. INVEST. REPEAT. lifestyle. We all work way too hard not to earn more. I’ve discovered that once I was able to offload my wealth building tasks to real estate, I became a better and more motivated W2 employee. And that is why I started the W2 Capitalist.
