98. Once Homeless, She Lands on Success in Real Estate
Kemi Egan is a bestseller author, founder of Freedom Academies and Freedom Investments, and host of the top rated podcast, New World, Real Estate. Homeless in her early twenties, she immersed herself in learning about wealth and success. Within 12 months she raised $1 million in private financing and built a multi-million dollar portfolio, all while still homeless.
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
Hearing her teacher declare, “Kemi, you’re either going to be a cleaner or a criminal,” harnessed her fighting spirit. “If you tell me I can’t do something, that will be the one thing I want to do.” That humiliation was “probably one of the best things he could have done for me.”
