Fuel 7: RJ Bates - Mindset to Be Blessed

Read more

What's up everybody! Welcome back to the Investor Fuel Show. If you listened to last week's show, you heard Mr. Sean Whalen who gave a Keynote presentation at a recent Investor Fuel Meeting and this week, I'm bringing you another awesome member of our Investor Fuel Family, Mr. RJ Bates! RJ is a great guy. He and his partner Cassi have built something pretty amazing. They are operating in lots of different states and have a mission to effectively dominate the world and be actively investing all over the country. He shared a presentation with us last year at the Investor Fuel meeting and it was a moving presentation on how he got to where he is. It's a kinda rags to riches story like coasting on fumes to going to absolutely crushing it in real estate investing. It's a powerful presentation and there were definitely some watery eyes in the crowd when he was sharing some of the stories and I think you'll get a lot of value out of it. I hope you enjoy it! Let's go ahead and jump in.
