Flipping America 287, Deal Funding via “Skin in the Game” Part 1

podcast 287 Skin in the Game, part 1


Recently I finished up another eBook, “How to Put Skin in the Game When You are Running Thin on Skin.” In it I show you how to do a real estate deal using none of your own money. I’m not just talking about the occasional “no money down” deal you might come across. I’m talking about doing a full fix and flip with none of your own money. People want to know how I’ve done 700 or more of these, so I wrote the book, telling you how I did it and continue to do it.

    • What does roll tide even mean?
    • There is an old southern gospel song that says “He will roll you over the tide.” Does this mean we will actually beat Alabama next time?
