About the Show

This podcast is for anyone seeking to learn how to create a lifetime of wealth and financial freedom by investing in multifamily real estate. Whether you are an aspiring syndicator or a passive investor seeking better returns and cash flow from your investments, this show is for you. Cody Laughlin and John Batey speak to industry experts to discuss all aspects of investing in multifamily real estate and seek to help all multifamily real estate investors improve their education and learn proven strategies to grow their businesses. (Description by Cody Laughlin)

Most of us resist setbacks and struggles, but both are crucial to our growth. In fact, the most successful investors respond to failure with resilience. These investors pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and then take the next step of uncomfortable action toward their dreams of financial freedom.

Rob Rowsell embodies that kind of human will. In 1999, he was a homeless crack addict living on the streets. Then, he stumbled into a rehab center, and through sheer grit, Rob turned his life around. Today, he is a real estate investor, motivational speaker, multiple business owner and bestselling author of Addicted to Life: How I Went from Homeless to Extraordinary Success and Happiness in a Short Period of Time.

On this episode of Financial Freedom with Real Estate Investing, Rob joins cohost Garrett Lynch and me to share his journey from homeless addict to successful multifamily investor. He explains why so many aspiring investors don’t succeed, challenging us to develop a strong WHY and leverage visualization to reach our goals. Listen in for Rob’s insight on cultivating the mindset where you need to take action, grow through the challenges, and achieve financial freedom as a multifamily investor!
