November 24, 2021 37 min

Episode Description

We all know mindset plays a huge role in success, but the power to scale to 7-figures before you’re even 30 years old? Tyler started in real estate at the age of 21, just flipping houses. After 5 years, he got into the multifamily space. Even with all the experience in house flipping, he noticed his wealth grow to seven figures in a short time in multifamily (bootstrapped), a goal he could never reach through flipping! People in Tyler’s marketplace know him for getting deals that nobody else can get or no one else will. He now shares his tactics and helps others build wealth through coaching and mentorship. Tyler is one guy you positively need to learn from! So let’s get into the conversation to learn how Tyler, through mindset, strategy, and networking, scaled to $7M before the age of 30.
