How do you go from full-time employee to full-time investor and keep paying your bills during the transition? 
Local investor Bill Ames had a succesful, decades-long career climbing the corporate ladder.  But deep inside he knew real estate investing was what he wanted to do.
So he started investing with the goal of replacing the income from his day job — and succeeded — and then some!  
At our next Strategies South Meeting, Bill will tell you the story of:
  • His first wholesale deal.  Bill started with wholesaling, as many first-time investors do.  And it paid off handsomely. 
  • His first rehab deal.  More work, but an even bigger payday.
  • His deals since then.  Including creative deals, like the one where he split off a lot to make an extra $70k.  Plus the deal where he netted almost $30k just by cleaning out the property for a quick sale to another rehabber.  Whatever works!
  • How he built a real estate business while still working his corporate day job.  Easy?  No.  Doable?  Yes.
  • How he finds leads for properties.  And how he turns those leads into deals. 
  • The challenges he has faced, and the people who helped him succeed.  Mentors, partners, lenders, contractors — you’ll need ’em, too.
About your presenter.  Bill Ames is CEO of The Team Edge.  A real estate acquisition, investment, and renovation expert, Bill has developed an eye for finding solutions to complicated real estate solutions, along with a passion for the business.
