If you really are looking for a way to brand yourself, to get started and test concepts, there’s not a better place than small town USA.
Jason Duff

Wholesaling and flipping are the gateway “drug” to long-term investing like my guest today focuses on.

Jason is one of my greatest entrepreneurial inspirations, a good friend of mine, and one of the most amazing real estate investors and community CHANGE AGENTS I’ve ever known.

In this episode Jason breaks down how he grew his outdoor advertising business to over 600 billboard faces in Ohio, how to strategically buy properties in the same area and bring businesses your community wants and gain equity in those businesses (in addition to the cash flow from your property), and why he’s almost single-handedly changing his small town community in Ohio.

If you’re not inspired by the end of this call, I don’t know what will get you going.
