From -$187.65 to Raising Millions with Daniel Kwak

Daniel Kwak first immigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 5. Due to a financially disadvantaged upbringing, at the age of 20 he had a negative amount of $187.65 in his bank account. Motivated by continued financial hardship throughout his life, he started learning about Real Estate Investing. The first two years he learned everything he could and at the age of 22 he did his first deal. By age 23 he had 83 rental units, along with having raised millions of dollars in capital and also having done a variety of different deals and strategies. We talked to Daniel about the importance of education, what you should do to get started in the current climate and some of the things you can do to grow your Youtube audience. LISTEN HERE:
