Anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Today's guest, Dean Rogers, is living proof. Dean dreamt of becoming a professional athlete as a child, and against all odds, he landed a 7-figure contract in the NFL. But he quickly realized he didn't want to jeopardize his health as a fullback, so he terminated his contract early and walked away with almost nothing. 

After leaving the NFL, Dean had to start from scratch. He took an office job and started living paycheck to paycheck until one day, he conquered his limiting beliefs and decided to try real estate investing. The rest… Well, the rest is history. 

Today, Dean has closed over 600 deals, built a rental portfolio worth over $10 million, and is coaching others to replicate his success. In our interview, he explains exactly how he pulled off these incredible transformations despite major setbacks. 

His story is truly remarkable, so make sure to tune in!
