Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman (general)

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.

[19:34] Being employee #1 can be worth it
