I am thrilled to have Brenton Hayden on the show this week. Listen in as he describes how he went from first starting his business with practically no money to becoming a multi-million dollar business. Brenton talks about waking up early, staying late and going the extra mile. He saw a need in the market and went after it. He goes in depth about the struggles he faced and how he convinced people to believe in his vision. He went from cold calling and getting his first six properties to rent to retiring from his CEO position in just 6 ½ years.
