S1E60: Transforming Professional Sports into a Life of Entrepreneurship with Art Morrison III
Jun 29, 2022 22 mins

Episode Description

Art Morrison III is a successful real estate investor who has transitioned from professional sports to entrepreneurship. Art shares his story of overcoming adversity and starting multiple businesses, including youth basketball training giant Above Max Basketball. Morrison discusses the pros and cons of flipping houses for passive income versus holding onto investments for long-term growth. He predicts that the real estate market will continue to grow, and encourages us to consider investing in multifamily properties as their next investment opportunity. While he has made some mistakes in his life, the biggest one was not making it to the NBA. He credits this experience as teaching him a lot of lessons about persistence, understanding that you can't always achieve your goals the first time, and having a higher goal to aim for.
