Welcome! 

This website is a place where I try to encourage people to make good investments in real estate and themselves. I’m always working to get better at everything I do, and I find it valuable to share my personal successes as a means to propel my fellow human do the same. While I do use this place as a means to educate, I try to do so by setting an example rather than acting as an authority.  

I started this website in 2017. I had turned my financial life around in the few years prior, paying off debt, saving some money, then buying a few rental properties and it changed my life and I knew I could help others do the same. This site is not a business, I don’t sell anything here, I’m simply trying to lead by example.

The site is called “Broke is a Choice” because tough love is the only way I know how to help people. In many ways being tough is the only way anyone can really help themselves, to admit and accept their shortcomings, take massive self responsibility, and overcome. I was broke for years before I finally admitted that it was my own lousy decisions causing my financial stress. Confessing the faults in my life were my own making was not easy but it was the only real path towards salvation, I’ve found a natural talent in helping people with this same challenge, so when I needed a name for this site I wanted something that would summarize that lesson and my personality: brash, but correct. 

“The strength of a person’s spirit would then be measured by how much ‘truth’ he could tolerate, or more precisely, to what extent he needs to have it diluted, disguised, sweetened, muted, falsified.” – Neitzsche

YouTube is my big 2020 goal and I’m trying to provide content that is entertaining and educational. I currently don’t monetize my channel because I don’t have enough subscribers but I give away enough content and information that asking for a YT sub isn’t much of an ask at all. YouTube is my approach at combining my two favorite hobbies, real estate and photography.

If you find anything of value on this website subscribing and watching some of my videos would be a good return of value to me, thank you. 

The blog is a mix of monthly updates, specific real estate information and random posts about investor mindset. 

Also some personal stuff because where else am I supposed to publish it? 

You want to see my deals right? 

I post my deals in complete transparency with the story it took to complete the deal, my strategy and obstacles throughout the transaction and all my financials.

There is no higher return on investment than books. I am an avid reader and I write about books quite often. I’m also of the opinion that people are reading a lot of the wrong books. Check out my book content here.

You can video chat with my by using the links at the bottom of this page or the contact page. I meet new people through this constantly and it’s always a lot of fun. We can discuss deals, strategy, networking, or whatever you think I can be helpful with, I just like to meet new people. 

Here is a link if you want to know more about me, my story, and my obviously amazing personality.
