Veterans in Real Estate #1: The Military Skills That Lead to Real Estate Success

Do military veterans and servicemembers have an advantage in real estate investing?

I can’t say for sure…

But there are definitely some “military skills” you need to learn if you want to succeed in real estate (or in any business for that matter).

So I’m kicking off a new series on the 7 Figure Flipping Podcast…

Over the next week or so, I’m going to be hanging out with some veterans and active-duty personnel who’re taking massive action in the real estate space. We’re going to unpack what they’re doing and how they’re doing it.

If you’re a military guy like me, this should be VERY interesting for you.

(There are some skills and opportunities you can leverage to set yourself up for huge success.)

If you’re NOT in the military or a veteran…

…then this will be a fun (and valuable) look inside the kind of training and life experience that comes from serving with our nation’s armed forces.

Let’s dive in!

My first guest is Ryan Proffit.

Ryan has been in the military for 20 years.

He’s a member of the 7 Figure Runway mentoring group.

And since November of last year, he has wholesaled 10 houses with an average wholesale fee of $13,000 each.

(That’s HUGE.)

I asked him to join me on the podcast to share his story.

In today’s episode we’re digging into things like…

  • How Ryan bought an 8-plex as his first deal (using some unusual funding)…
  • How he created “money out of thin air” with 4 properties in Nebraska…
  • The military training that helps him make good decisions as an investor…
  • How he deals with fear of the unknown and failure…
  • How he met (and carefully vetted) his business partner…
  • 5 lessons from the military that make him a better entrepreneur…

…and more.
