Multifamily Legacy Podcast

Jul 24, 2018

Today, my guest is RJ Bates of Titanium Investments. RJ started his career at Pizza Hut as a delivery driver. He worked his way up from shift manager to assistant manager, and then got his own restaurant.

RJ didn’t know what he wanted to do in his life and got stuck in a job. He wasn’t happy, and it wasn’t what he was meant to do with his life. He was a slave to the restaurant business. But he learned a lot of business skills and will never regret the time he spent with Pizza Hut. After he quit at Pizza Hut, he took a minimum-wage job at a golf course and cashed in his 401k from Pizza Hut to buy his first rental property that cash flows like no other. Now, RJ lives the life he wants and is in control of his own destiny!
