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.

Auditor: The Best Job For A Real Estate Investor

In this episode of The Best Job For a Real Estate Investor, I’m joined by Bo Kim. Bo lives in LA (and for my Alabama friends, that is NOT Lower Alabama). While Los Angeles is an expensive market to invest, Bo has focused his efforts and found success on long distance investing in 11 out of state units (something I hope to do later this year).

Not only does he share the name with one of my childhood heroes, but he he has also incorporated one of his catch phrases: Bo Knows Cash Flow. And yes, I still have a box full of baseball cards. The only time I’ve ever been star struck was while eating dinner approx. 5 years ago and in walked Mr. Vincent Jackson (how can I get him as a guest on here???). Anyways…after talking with Bo Kim, I’m CONVINCED that being an Auditor IS THE BEST JOB when it comes to investing in real estate on the side.

Key Takeaways:

  • Know YOUR investing criteria.
  • Why Cash-on-Cash Return is important to Bo.
  • Auditors deal with Business Risk Management and SEC Regulations -> key for RE investors.
  • I am not Bo Kim – he is!!

General Contractor: The Best Job For A Real Estate Investor

General Contractors have THE BEST JOB when it comes to investing in real estate on the side, but don’t take my word for it. Hear it straight from 10 year GC veteran Darron Hay: https://youtu.be/1dasiCn1Nik

Darron and I connected through my Facebook Group, when he commented on a post I made about the danger around relying on just one stream of income. When I saw his story I knew this was a guy I wanted to talk to. Darron’s amazing story of how he and his wife, in separate incidents, not only lost their single flow of income but almost lost their lives in a span of 6 days is something you do not want to miss.
