Using a Mentor to Accelerate Your Success with Whitney Sewell

Whitney Sewel is the Director of Life Bridge Capital and host of the Real Estate Syndication Show. He began investing in real estate to supplement his income from working in law enforcement.  His company invests with a mission as they donate 50% of profits from the business to support orphans worldwide.  In this episode Whitney talks about the value of mentors, sharing your passion while networking and creating value by problem solving.

Whitney discusses how he got started in real estate after learning that many people have used real estate as a wealth building tool.  He started by investing in single family homes, duplexes and even a 15 unit apartment but discovered that these assets were not going to allow him to scale in the way he wanted.  Whitney mentions that he learned about syndication by attending as many real estate networking events as possible and realized that syndication was how he wanted to create wealth for his family.

Whitney talks about the value of mentors and how critical it is to do your due diligence to find a quality mentor which includes contacting referrals and industry veterans to find out as much as you can about the potential mentor and the value of paying for a properly researched mentor. Whitney thinks having a mentor is critical, but your success will always come down to your commitment to the process and willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.

Whitney discusses how his success took massive dedication and how helpful it was to him to share his why and his passion with his network and investors – in his case his foundation for orphans – to help him stand out and be remembered.  He also talks about creating value by solving problems at the properties.
