Adversity Causes Some People to Break, and Other People to Break Records
I formerly worked at the State of Arizona for 14 years. During that time, in 2001, I started a business in my spare time buying fixer-upper houses and turning them into rental properties.
There was no turning back. I had crossed the Maginot Line and entered a whole new realm.
I write books about real estate investing, and about self-reliance. I also make presentations at book festivals, to civic groups, and have been a frequent guest on radio shows.
Somewhere in the misty past, I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Honduras, where I worked as a teacher trainer in rural schools, and started chicken projects. During that time, I was widely referred to, in hushed tones, as the legendary “king of the chickens” (half man – half chicken). Those exploits may be revealed in a future book, after the statutes of limitations have safely passed.
I am author of the books, “Fix ‘em Up, Rent ‘em,” ”Carve Out Your Niche,” and the recently released (co-authored by my business partner and lovely wife, Angy) ” Turn Your Home Into a Rental House Insted of Selling.”
I reside in Tucson, Arizona with my wife, 2 boys (affectionately referred to as “I want” and “buy me”), and Blackie, the wonder dog.
