If you’re in the business of real estate investing, then I know why you’re listening to this podcast. But my guest today is here to talk about how you can balance your own business and use real estate as a sort of passive income that can build your wealth and, eventually, give you more free time to spend on the things that truly matter to you! [youtube]https://youtu.be/V_DlgynkxXE[/youtube] Dr. David Phelps is my guest today. You’d never guess it, but he transitioned from dentistry to real estate quite easily. Because that’s the thing about this business, isn’t it? You can bounce around until your find your niche. The business of real estate investment is very simple, but most of us complicate it by thinking too hard or trying too hard. I know I’m guilty of it, even David’s guilty of it, but he’s talking today about how you can balance the simple stuff with the hard stuff and still come out ahead. And you come out ahead when you focus on maintaining your entrepreneurial spirit. Consider this – instead of investing just money, ask yourself what kind of people you are investing in. David’s biggest takeaway from this episode is how to invest in the right people who have the integrity, the track record, and the critical thinking necessary to be successful in real estate. While we all may like to think we can do it alone, there is absolutely no reason you have to. So tune in now to hear how David broke through dentistry and keeps himself a team of amazing people that support and work together with him to keep business booming.
