Description

You’ve probably heard J Scott’s real estate story (spoiler alert—he’s killing it!). But he’s never really told his money story that led up to this massive real estate success. Today, we talk to J and discover that in his 20s, he knew nothing about money, investing, or real estate. He started off $35,000 in debt, with no plan and no goals. An investing discussion with friends led to the creation of a spreadsheet to display his financial position in terms he could not ignore. The spreadsheet spawned a goal of $0 debt, a second job as a bartender, and J paying off all his debt in two years. He discovered he liked owning assets. At the suggestion of his wife, they bought a house to flip and promptly made every single flipping mistake you can make. Hear how J turned mistakes into successes many times over—and how having a goal to work towards keeps him focused on moving forward.
