S1E29: Investing with the Right People with Pili Yarusi
November 17, 2021 34 min

Episode Description

I truly believe who you invest with vastly outweighs what you invest IN, and today’s guest, Pili Yarusi, shares this view. Pili loves to help people and “Lead with Aloha”. In Real Estate, Pili is a Large Multifamily Owner, Operator, and Syndicator. She and her husband Jason founded Yarusi Holdings LLC a Large Multifamily Investment Firm and together they have managed over $100M in assets across over 1000 Multifamily Units. She is also the co-host of the Multifamily Live Podcast and the Jason and Pili Project. Aside from the multifamily space, her goal is to empower and educate women to gain financial freedom, especially through Multifamily.

This episode goes a little longer than usual but, you know what, I promise you it will be worth your time! So jump into the conversation with me and Pili about investing with the right people; the importance and how to find them.
