Episode Breakdown


Brandon is also the founder and managing member of Open Door Capital LLC, a private, well capitalized real estate investment firm that helps clients achieve superior risk-adjusted returns through the acquisition of value-add assets nationwide. He started Open Door Capital with 100 units, and now, 3 years later, he has 5,000 units.


When Brandon was 21, he invested in real estate. Beginning with the purchase of a single-family house while he was working, renting out the bedrooms, then selling it later. For the first time, he could step away from the mindset of hours worked = dollar produced. For Brandon, that one house became multiple houses.


After building his portfolio, he started a blog Real Estate In Your 20s and did side work for Joshua Dorkin, founder of Bigger Pocket. Together they created a podcast which now has over 100 million downloads. Josh had a vision of what Bigger Pockets could be. As an entrepreneur, there are things you do in rhythm every day that produce the results you want in life. He hired to “get the things done that build towards the vision” 

Challenge 1: What could you do every day for the next 6 months, and if you did that… your wildest dreams would get accomplished? What are those 1, 2 or 3 things? 

Challenge 2: Who can you get to do that?


How do you turn massive income into passive income without becoming a landlord? Brandon provides a few options… Develop a partnership to get it done. Invest in a syndication. Invest with smart teams with good deals.  

Brandon received this word advice and passed it on to you… “Stop telling what you have and what you can do with it, start telling what is possible and what you need to get there.”


Build your team around you. Bring the right people together to “get the things done that build towards the vision.” Find the people that have the skills, and when they do those skills, it fires them up!  

What fuels Brandon is helping his team build a better life for themselves. As an entrepreneur, Brandon is now coaching his team, who is doing the work. Pouring into his team is always life giving!
