Secret Academy Episode - Julie Broad
About:

In 2001, Julie Broad was getting ready to go back to school to earn an MBA, but she didn't want to end up deeper in debt upon graduating. She decided to invest the money that was supposed to go towards tuition into purchasing two real estate properties with her then boyfriend, now husband. They ended up buying 2-5 properties a year until taking the leap to become a full-time real estate investor and starting a real estate newsletter in 2008. The newsletter led to an education business teaching others how to invest in real estate using Julie's marketing and business background and her husband's mortgage lending background. Today, Julie has transitioned her business out of the real estate realm and focused on speaking engagements and continuing her newsletter on http://havemoreinfluence.com/
