Episode 019 | Greg Patterson, GP's Photography

My guest this week is Greg Patterson, owner of GP’s Photography.  Greg has been an entrepreneur for more than a decade, and has done family’s pictures for my family, many of our mutual friends, families, coworkers and more.  I have known Greg for nearly twenty years and have been interested in the entrepreneurial route his life has taken.  Greg never took the safe route. He has always known his career path would follow a different route, but how he got to where he is now is the really interesting part of his story.

One of the things I have always appreciated about Greg is that he never sugar coats what his life is really like as a business owner.  He tells the good things, like having the flexibility to have lunch at home with his family whenever he wants.  But he always mentions the difficult side of owning a business as well.  The late nights and long weekends.  Being booked solid every weekend from April through August during the wedding season.  Not knowing where his next paycheck would be coming from.  These are the challenges and sacrifices and trade offs that every business owner makes, and Greg is brutally honest about how they challenge him.  It’s refreshing to hear this kind of honesty from someone who faces these challenges every day and still decides that entrepreneurship is the path for him. Greg says in this interview that as a photographer, he captures life.  I’m glad I captured this little piece of his life and I’m happy to share it with you now.

Episode 020 | Joe Fairless | The Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever

My guest this week is Joe Fairless, owner of Fairless Investing, fellow podcaster and host of The Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever Show.  Joe and I talk about all kinds of things, from his initial foray into real estate investing, to how he manages his day.  We talk quite a bit about his podcast, why he started it and how it has helped his business grow.  Joe’s a pretty impressive guy- he was a top level advertising executive earning six figures before his 28th birthday.  He left all that behind and tried his hand at a bunch of different things before settling on real estate investing. Now, he manages his own $21 million investment portfolio while teaching others how to build their own real estate business on his daily show.
