Episode: 231

Dan Slaughter

If you're frustrated and overwhelmed by your lack of progress in real estate investing, despite your dedication and extensive research, know that you're not alone. Many experienced investors attend seminars, read books, and flip properties but still face minimal returns and missed opportunities. Instead of achieving financial freedom, they may accumulate debt and feel trapped in their current financial situation.

Dan Slaughter is a military veteran and real estate investor who has achieved remarkable success in his first real estate deal. With 27 years of service in the army and a 20-year corporate IT sales job, Dan brings a wealth of experience to his real estate ventures. His journey began when he started looking for an exit strategy from his corporate job, which led him to explore the world of real estate investing. His first investment not only appraised for double the purchase price but also cash flows as a short-term rental. Dan's success story serves as an inspiration to military veterans looking to transition into real estate investing and achieve financial freedom.

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase “I don't get paid enough” entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom!
