The Foundation | EREI 129

Real Estate Investing BusinessOn this episode, Matt is establishing the foundation that supports a good real estate investing business. You don’t create this foundation by leaping thoughtlessly into action — the right foundation begins with your mind and your motivation. That’s why the focus of today’s show is getting your mind right. In other words, you are going to find out how to have the mindset of a millionaire real estate investor, and why thinking this way is crucial to your future success.

This episode is the 3rd part of our week-long series, Back to Basics. In case you didn’t hear the first two episodes, catch up by clicking here:
