Yeah, I know you’ve heard that before. But I really am the classic American “rags to riches” story.
I’m a Brazilian immigrant turned investor, author, international speaker, and teacher. I moved to the US in 1998 with only a dream and $100 at my disposal. Against all odds, I achieved the American dream using tax deed investing and the gig economy to fuel my success.
Here’s how this all happened...
After reading that book I was mind-blown. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I could finally have my real-estate career back. And, that’s exactly what happened.
Fast forward to today, I have over 800 transactions under my belt, I’ve bought properties for as low as $31.28, and in one of my best case studies I bought a property that’s worth $1.3 million and I only paid $6,342.79 for it.
People believed that you must own a piece of real estate in order to make money from it. What if I told you that, by just tapping into Airbnb, an industry projected to hit $10 billion in 2021, you can start making money without owning or buying real estate? That is a trend to look into. Most investors are stuck on the RICH DAD—POOR DAD era, now it’s time to be the SMART DAD.
With that in mind, I set out to build my short-term rental EMPIRE. I now have over 60 units in my portfolio that generate over $100,000 a month!
I’ve got an amazing (and growing) team that helps me teach entrepreneurs from around the world how to make millions by investing in Tax Liens and Tax Deeds and how to launch the short-term rental business of their dreams. I’m the author of the book “Eat This Mr. President”. I put on live events and talks for attendees from around the world. And I still get to spend a lot of time with my son and daughter – and I have enough time to work on my passions. All of this was possible because I decided it was time to take control of my life. And now, it’s my goal to help people around the world create the real-estate business and the lifestyle of their dreams.
