At age 40, Gary Wilson retired as the corporate vice president of mergers & acquisitions from a national bank — and then embarked on building his wealth in real estate. In his first 6 months after earning real estate license, he created a six figure income by working with investors. He has since traded over 3,000 investment properties, written five books sharing his expertise so others in the business can do the same, and has taught his Path to Prosperity System to over 14,000 agents and investors across the country. Gary has appeared on over 100 national and local media outlets including CBS, FOX News, NBC, ABC, and Business Week.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • How Gary got involved in real estate in a small way which quickly grew in a large regional business – which wasn’t entirely satisfying
  • How finding passion later in life can be a great way to kickstart your career and become a happier person overall with a little thought
  • How important localization is when selling real estate
  • Gary’s expertise in scaling real estate businesses effectively and growing a business into different region…by appealing to a rare market, the investors themselves
  • The importance of being thankful for your life and what you are able to accomplish at any stage of your life
  • Vision exercises: Why everyone should take time to plan out their future successes, not just in the short term but in the coming years, to help orientate their actions
  • How helping people, and learning to network in productive ways, is a key tool for success
  • Why when working toward success in business, it’s important to start small and carefully prepare rather than aim immediately for explosive growth
  • Carefully considering your “inner circle,” your mentors and the people you got to for advice or leads – and thinking about how dependable they are so you can improve your inner circle in realistic ways
  • More about the classes and seminars Gary teaches on investment, real estate, contacting investors, and other topics
