Recession Ideas with Bill Guting and Kimmie Nguyen

It's often the notion that money is hard to earn during an economic crisis. People are freaking out, and most are scared and refuse to see the brighter side.

Open your mind to the possibility that opportunities abound. Only through education will you learn to turn things around during a downturn.

Our two guests for today prove that. Come and join us in this episode!

Bill Guting is one of the Founders and Partners of the DreamVest group of companies, which invests in commercial and residential projects in prime U.S. markets with the greatest potential for cash flow and/or long-term equity growth potential.

In this episode, Bill and Kimmie have shown that where others fear, they have found their strength, finding opportunities in an economic crisis. While others are conservative, they are creative in finding deals that get them past the down times.
