“Understanding why you’re doing this is the most important thing. Knowing that this business is a crockpot – this isn’t a microwave business.”  – Derek Clifford

This week, I’m joined by my friend Derek Clifford, CEO of Elevate Equity. Not only is Derek a successful single- and multifamily real estate investor, having acquired 13 out-of-state units in his first year alone, but he’s built his portfolio while working a full-time W2 job!

Derek is also (appropriately) author of the book, “Part-Time Real Estate Investing for Full-Time Professionals,” where he demystifies real estate investing for those with moderate incomes and full-time jobs.

Derek shares his strategies for better time-management, and his approach to building “good” debt. Plus, a confession about the perils of losing sight of what matters most.
