How has the industry changed since you got started?

It hasn’t changed.

What is a mentor to you?  Did you have any mentors growing your business?

I had a mentor who showed me what not to do who was as valuable as my other mentors who have showed me the right way.

What were the most important business lessons you learned when starting to grow your business? 

Find a problem I am passionate about fixing and build a team of smart people I like to go about the work of creating a solution.

Any advice you could offer to people new to the industry and considering real estate investing for a living?

Focus, docs, focus.
