I have to confess that I'm guilty of this.
Wholesaling houses is often presented as the easiest way to get into real estate investing.
Sure it doesn't require much capital and it can generate incredible profits.
But the truth is that for beginners, wholesaling can be tough, scary, and even a little intimidating.
Michael McDonald started wholesaling a few years ago in a small midwest market, but he's grown that into a team that does deals all across the country.
What I loved about interviewing Michael was his openness to share his struggles (5 months of prospecting with 0 deals) and how he got through the struggles and on to closing 6 deals in the next 6 months.
