I admire our military personnel very much for what they signed up for and the job they are willing to do.  When they add in real estate investing on top
of it, I'm even more impressed.

Key Takeaways:

“Real estate investing is an opportunity. Anybody can get and do it. You don’t need any degrees or any credentials. You don’t need a whole lot of money. You can figure it out with hustle, education, the right mindset, and the right community or people or support team.” – Tim Kelly  

“Surround yourself with people that are way smarter than you.” – Tim Kelly  

“The Navy, over the last 15+ years, made me who I am today. We’re programmed a little differently. The discipline, the ability to follow instructions, the teamwork, the work ethic, the leadership, the ability to be humble and have humility and serve – all of those things make people that are in the military bots come out the perfect-like beta-human to learn the roads of real estate or just anywhere in business because they apply it very well in business.” – Tim Kelly
