To be a successful entrepreneur and investor, you need to learn how to turn a no into a yes. Today’s guest, Anthony Michael, has earned his title as a successful entrepreneur from doing just that. Through determination, calculated risk, and finding ways to create value, Anthony has done thirteen flips while also becoming a trusted lender.
Anthony’s real estate investing journey started when he realized he needed to gain control of his money. After his first flip, a live in flip on the house he and his wife had just bought, he knew flipping was something he could do for profit. From there he found his first partner, one of his co-workers, and began to flip even more houses. The second partner he found rejected him at first, even though his online profile (with no profile picture) was pretty much anonymous. Despite this, Anthony was drawn to this mystery partner and his alleged “400 flips” so he flew out to meet this so-called legend and was pleasantly surprised when he was exactly who he said he was.
Anthony could have stopped there but he decided to tap into a new source of income; lending. It started with him asking his neighbor what he did for a living and now he’s the top-rated lender on BiggerPockets. The ability to create value and persist has allowed Anthony to become not only a great real estate investor but an amazing entrepreneur.
