There are plenty of "get rich quick in real estate" books. This is not one of them.

Drawing on his personal experience-and hundreds of interviews with many of the most successful real estate investors and entrepreneurs-Poorvu illuminates every stage of your "life" in real estate: creating wealth, growing it, and

managing it successfully. He reveals the milestones, pitfalls, and rewards associated with real estate investing, offering powerful insight into the challenges and opportunities you'll face as you start out...scale up...ride the industry's cyclical waves and then leverage, share, or pass along the wealth you've created.

This book contains dozens of real life personal stories, hands-on checklists, and questions to guide your decisions...and it delivers unparalleled insight into how the real estate industry

Balance your business, wealth, and family
