Jason Hartman and Adam begin the show discussing how half of the potential home buyers are currently throwing in the towel because they can’t find a house in their budget. They’re getting discouraged and losing hope for the future as well, causing a surge in renters. As an investment property owner, that puts you in a fantastic position.
Then Jason talks with Nely Galan, former president of Telemundo and author of Self-Made: Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant and Rich In Every Way, about her journey up the corporate ladder and why she got in to investing in commercial properties. Nely took the dramatic step of leaving a solid, promising job in network TV to become employee #1 at a small startup called Telemundo. Nely explains how you can use your early jobs to prepare yourself for your own success and why sacrifice is necessary.
