Dave Seymour is a former military and firefighting paramedic, the star of Flipping Boston, and the CEO of Freedom Ventures Investments. Unlike many real estate investors who have started their careers early in adulthood, Dave did not go on this path until he was in his late 30s. After quitting his day job where he worked 120 hours a week, Dave started his real estate career by flipping houses, and he worked and worked until he built a private lending business, and then an empire in the multifamily sphere.

However, the journey was never easy for Dave. Having basically nothing to start investing with, Dave needed a major mindset shift to finally get out of the daily grind. With his experiences and the challenges he went through, Dave is one of the best people to teach us about shifting your mindset to get to where you want to be, which is the true essence of this show.

Listen as Dave and I talk about how getting educated, finding the right partners, and learning from the best mentors are the keys to success in the real estate world. No matter what kind of investor you are, this episode contains at least one thing that you need to hear.
