REI Marketing Nerds

Nov 2, 2022

Many of us were tricked into thinking good grades and a good job leads to happiness. While there are many valuable business lessons you can learn in the corporate world, many people feel like it sucks their soul dry. 

Then, of course, there’s always a possibility of getting laid off. 

Well, that story played out for today’s guest, real estate investor, Mike Deaton. Both he and his wife got laid off at the exact time — but instead of jumping back into the corporate rat race, they reflected and decided to jump into real estate investing. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how having a corporate background simplifies your success in real estate investing. And Mike shares how to tell, with certainty, if it’s time to leave your corporate job for entrepreneurship.
