 345: “Vivid Visions” and 90-Day Sprints—Brandon’s Approach to Mobile Home Park Investing (and Life!) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:13:19

Today, Brandon Turner’s on the other side of the microphone. J and Carol Scott, co-hosts of the BiggerPockets Business Podcast, recently interviewed him… and the result was so epic we wanted to share it here, too! In this episode, Brandon reveals why he chose mobile home park investing (hint: NOT necessarily because it’s the “best” investment) and describes the method his team used to get hundreds of pads under contract in just a few months. (It's an approach YOU can apply using the new BiggerPockets Intention Journal.) But this show is about much more than real estate. It’s about avoiding that all-too-common pitfall where you set an ambitious goal only to see it buried under an avalanche of more urgent (but less important) responsibilities. Brandon shares the tools he’s used to break that cycle and how he’s applied them to other challenges—like moving to Hawaii, improving his personal health, and spending more meaningful time with his family. You’ll hear how Brandon’s first business venture failed, how he got into real estate investing for cash flow, and how he discovered a way to bring BIG value to BiggerPockets as Employee #2, despite not owning a computer the year before! Oh, and you’ll learn the meaning of “M.I.N.S.” and the role they play in moving your business forward (ESPECIALLY when the going gets tough).  Brandon also shares why writing out a “vivid vision” of your future might be the best thing you can do to move yourself closer to your ideal life; why he asks, “What would be awesome?” and then works backwards; and why he and his wife organize a goal-setting retreat together on the same day every year.
