WIP 1255: From Slam Dunks to Real Estate Deals – Former Pro Athlete Closes 180 Deals in 3 Years

From dribbling balls to dribbling money, Elijah Bryant proves to us that you can achieve financial freedom in land real estate. He used to be a professional basketball player and relocated to Tampa, where he secured his first deal and closed it for $6,000. He achieved this simply by driving around and actively seeking out dilapidated, unsightly houses. He’s been mastering land and house flipping for three years and has closed 180 deals since then!

If you want to champion closing land deals (just like him) make sure to visit the Land Sharks Program.
