JF1988: Lessons from Losing Everything with Mike Ealy


Mike Ealy graduated from Tuskegee University with Electrical Engineering and started into real estate without understanding over leveraging.  Started off great, buying 20+ units and through some unforeseen events lost it all and moved back home at 30 years old. Instead of rolling over and giving up, Mike came back strong and took the lessons he learned from his experience and turned them into profits. Listen to the lessons Mike has learned so you don’t have to.

Best Ever Tweet:

“This is kind of like a marriage, you’re able to communicate, you’re able to express your thoughts and move on, but if you’re married to someone and have to constantly argue everyday it’s not going to be a great marriage because in these deals you’re locked in for 3-7 years.” – Mike Ealy
