WI 1003 | Financial Mistakes To Avoid


Imagine making over $600k monthly with wholesaling and still losing money? Unfortunately, this is a trap many real estate investors fall into.

Today’s guest, David Richter, is the Founder of SimpleCFO and author of Profit First for Real Estate Investing. He joins Lauren Hardy to discuss the biggest financial mistakes real estate investors make and how to avoid them.
