Are you settling for good enough? It’s easy to get comfortable with the way life is going and let complacency set in. But if you really want to achieve greatness, you’ve got to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Whether it’s your personal development OR your multifamily portfolio, meaningful growth happens OUTSIDE your comfort zone.

Andrew Kuhn is the founder and CEO of Kuhn Real Estate, a multifamily investment firm and property management company based in the Greater Detroit Area. He spent the last 14 years in a highly compensated medical device sales role before quitting his job just one month ago to pursue investing full-time! Andrew has been involved in real estate since 2006, building a robust single-family portfolio of 76 rentals. He transitioned to multifamily two years ago and has already closed six deals totaling 281 units. Andrew also serves as a mentor with us through the Michael Blank Investor Incubator.

Today, Andrew joins me to discuss his decision to quit a lucrative W-2 job and explain how he’s becoming a servant leader now that he’s achieved financial freedom. He describes what lights him up about mentoring new investors and shares some of his most influential teachers in the personal development and real estate space. Listen in for Andrew’s methodology around learning something new and find out what’s inspiring him to scale his multifamily portfolio to 20K units!
