Step It Up Entrepreneur

Feb 16, 2022

We’re all on different paths and where we start is not necessarily where we end up 9 times out of 10.  The average person will have 12 different jobs in their lifetimes, but if they’re lucky, they stumble into working with an entrepreneur that ignites their passion and shows them the ropes into running their own business. 

Mike Hambright is a Multi-Millionaire Real Estate Investor, Founder of Investor Fuel, America’s Top Mastermind for Professional Real Estate Investors, Founder of Flip Nerd, and Co-Founder of Investor Machine. Mike is one of the most diversified Real Estate Investors in the country and brings his exotic mix of investing in Real Estate while helping fellow investors find high-quality leads saving them time, and money. 

Today, Tom gets Mike to share his early start in business in the corporate world where he is self-identified as a “Corporate Refugee,” as they discuss the challenges associated with not truly being autonomous in that environment. Mike talks about how he worked his way into a startup that later collapsed due to bankruptcy and why he decided to make a jump out on his own.  Mike talks about flipping hundreds of homes in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, but still feeling a need to educate, speak, and help fellow investors make their way through what can be a tedious process.  Tom and Mike have a candid discussion about masterminds and the power of educating like-minded, goal and results-driven individuals to success. They discuss the evolution of real estate from Covid and the reason 2021 was such a transformative year for real estate investors. Bring your tablets and get ready for an education.

Favorite Quote:

 “I was riding the wave of a half-billion-dollar a year company and 18 months after I went there, they filed for bankruptcy.  My son had just been born. He was 2 months old.  My wife had quit her job for me to go take this job and it was just the realization of I don’t have control over where I go from here.  It doesn’t matter how hard I work, how smart I am, or anything. That was my first foray into “I need to do something different” which ultimately became real estate, but I didn’t know that at the time.”
