Traveling Salesman: The Best Job For A Real Estate Investor

In this episode of The Best Job For a Real Estate Investor, I’m joined by Michael Zuber and Jamie O’Brien, both traveling salesman but at different points in their careers.

Michael has been investing for 15 Years through his One Rental At A Time concept, has now retired from his successful W2 career and focusing on real estate full time. Jamie is at the opposite end of the spectrum by recently expanded his sales territory and been investing for just a couple of years.

After talking with Michael and Jamie, I’m CONVINCED that being a Traveling Salesman IS THE BEST JOB when it comes to investing in real estate on the side. And THE BEST part of this conversation happens toward the end, so be sure to stay until then or skip ahead.

Key Takeaways:

  • Difference between a “rookie” race horse and a grey haired stud in the barn.
  • “One of the worst days of my life was receiving a Platinum Travel Rewards Cards.”
  • Know YOUR investing criteria.
  • Thriving through a real estate downturn; not just living but thriving through the 2008 crisis.

I have built this community to connect motivated and ambitious W2 employees who have a successful and fulfilling job but want to build wealth for their family through real estate investing. What makes me the expert? Depends. I’m not the expert to everyone, but I am the expert if you’re behind me on this journey. I’ve been climbing the corporate ladder since 2001 and started actively investing in real estate in 2014. I currently hold a portfolio of 323 units, including single family residences, small multi-family residences and apartment syndications. Since my wife and I started investing, we have grown our net worth 10x and increased our annual income by 60% with these rental properties.
