Real Estate Investing

The Importance of Mindset & Opportunities During the Coronavirus Crisis [FB Live AMA: Dan Doran]

On Tuesday, March 24, we held a Facebook Live Ask-Me-Anything with special guest Dan Doran. We talked about issues surrounding the Coronavirus and the importance of having a proper mindset, and being able to identify real estate investing opportunities in unsettling times. This AMA is a must-listen if you want to succeed in the current uncertain real estate environment.

Dan Doran is a Master Coach for real estate investment entrepreneurs. He and his team have coached over 1,800 entrepreneurs to six and seven-figure incomes. No joke! Dan built up his $5 million dollar REI coaching company by advising real estate investors on how to supercharge their investing results by applying his REI master skills.

Why Dan’s Perspective is So Important Right Now

Of particular relevance is Dan’s experience coaching real estate investors during difficult economic times, including the Great Recession of 2008. 71% of his top students achieved financial freedom during the 2008 crash!

This AMA has a ton of useful tips and resources to help you get through, and more importantly thrive on, the tough road ahead.
