Your DoorDash driver may be the world's next real estate mogul. If you ever had Josh Janus drop off food at your house, you may have been in the middle of him getting a deal done. That's right; between picking up and delivering food, Josh was cold-calling sellers, sourcing as many off-market real estate deals as possible. This type of serial side hustling led Josh to acquire $1,500,000 in real estate at age twenty-two, making $50,000 per month and building a business most entrepreneurs could only dream of.
From a young age, Josh was already the king of multiple income streams. He was making duct tape wallets on the bus, flipping shoes online, and doing whatever he could to save more money. When he found BiggerPockets, he realized that real estate was the way to propel his dollars even further, allowing him to have money work for him instead of the other way around. So, Josh set out building a "hybrid wholesaling" model. He would contact off-market sellers, send their information to an agent, and get paid for his side of the deal.
Once Josh got his real estate license, he started hustling even harder, selling $17,000,000 of real estate as an agent, making more in a month than many Americans make in a year. So what was Josh's quick key to success? How did he do all this in his early twenties without any experience? And how can you repeat the same system to skyrocket your wealth? Stick around; Josh will tell you how to do it too!
