482: Full-Time Fireman Does 300 Deals While Working 40 Hours/Week
Play • 1 hr 2 min

Everybody is busy. We have jobs, kids, businesses, and responsibilities to take care of. Why go out of your way and risk your money and time to invest in real estate? Mike Webb, firefighter, investor, flipper, and wholesaler argues the opposite. Mike says that it’s far riskier to simply rely on your job for the entirety of your income.

Mike began his investing career by investing in a side-by-side duplex, rehabbing it, and failing to complete a successful BRRRR. After seeing the cash flow and learning from his mistakes, Mike saw an investment strategy that could carry him to financial freedom. He is still working as a full-time firefighter, but is building his portfolio and completing 20-30 flips per year while he does so. This gives Mike the ultimate freedom to do whatever is best for him and his family, even though he loves his job.

In a world where it seems cool for everyone to quit their job, Mike reassures those who like their work that it’s worth staying, especially to keep that investment money flowing. He also walks through his partnerships, how he hires his team members, and what you can do to systematize your business so you can outsource your work as you take on more strategic roles!
