This week, our Hometown Heroes edition comes courtesy of the legendary city of Nashville, Tennessee. If you’re from Tennessee you have most likely heard of Slim and Husky’s. The new age pizza chain is the talk of the town in the culinary industry. With three locations in Tennessee, one in Atlanta and one more Atlanta location on the way, their reach is growing at a fast pace. The company is not your average pizza store. It was created by three childhood friends (Emanuel Reed, Derrick Moore, and Clinton Gray) who have grown into serial entrepreneurs. The pizzeria combines hip hop, style, art and community givebacks to make the pizza-buying experience different from their competition. Their pizza business is booming but the story goes deeper than that. The trio started their first business with a few thousand dollars in 2010, which was a green eco-friendly moving company. They sold that company a few years later for over a million dollars. After the sale, they used the proceeds to fund their next business which was Slim and Husky’s. In episode 61, they told their story in detail, they explained the process of selling a company, and broke down how they have created a scaleable business that is still community based. #Entrepreneur #Restauranteur Guest IG: @slimandhuskys EYL Website: www.earnyourleisure.com --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app · Talk Money With Mesh Lakhani Podcast: On The Talk Money with Mesh Lakhani podcast, Mesh will follow paper trails, chat with experts, and break down complex ideas to bring clarity to the mystical financial phenomena behind your finances. https://open.spotify.com/show/20gI5HoX4J0zlsCgnjqWoP?si=w8xX2XpITSuysd_xGiGQiQ Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/earnyourleisure/support

Our latest edition of Home Town Heroes comes courtesy of the turbulent city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the age of 31 Brandon Rule is a business prodigy. He is a commercial real estate developer with an extremely impressive resume. He has developed $50 million in affordable housing projects in Milwaukee through his company Rule Enterprises and has an additional $180 million in projects currently in his development pipeline. A few weeks ago Brandon went viral on social media after news broke that the city of Madison, WI recommended that he be awarded a contract to develop a 30,000-square-foot grocery store, 150-unit apartment building and 345-space parking garage on a city-owned lot. There aren’t too many black commercial real estate developers, and they’re definitely aren’t a lot his age. One of the reasons why there are so few black developers is that there isn’t a lot of exposure given to successful individuals in the industry. Most people think about real estate from an investor’s perspective very few aspire to be big-time commercial developers. In episode 54 of @earnyourleisure Brandon broke down the ins and outs of commercial real estate development, he explained how affordable housing credits work, he talked about financing and he gave an in-depth look into his journey into becoming an icon in the industry.

Wholesaling is a fascinating part of real estate that not many people are very knowledgeable in. You can make huge profits wholesaling real estate and you don't need any money to start, you don’t need a real estate license, and you don't need years of experience. What you do need is a strong work ethic, knowledge, and a game plan. For months our Earners have been asking us to cover wholesaling and they have overwhelmingly asked for one guest to talk about it. The undisputed wholesaling champ Max Maxwell. It took a while but we got it done. Max is as big as it gets when it comes to teaching about wholesaling. He has built a community of over 400,000 people between Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. Outside of social media, he runs a business empire that will gross over $7,000,000 this year. What makes his story remarkable is where he started. Three years ago his bank account was overdrawn by $438. Today he employs 18 people and just closed on 8,000 square feet of office space. He is a serial entrepreneur and operates several businesses, but wholesaling is what got him off the ground and has remained a major focus in his business plan. In episode 50 he broke down everything you need to know to get started wholesaling real estate. He explained the ins and outs of the game, he went into detail about how to master a market and he provided industry insider tips. If you’re interested in making money in real estate without having to start with much capital this is not an episode you can afford to miss.

After making a name for himself in the city, he was offered a podcast deal, and then a TV deal for his own show on Vice called “Hustle”. He parlayed that into a brand endorsement deal with Cadillac.

Good morning, I came across your podcast and its great!!! i would like to offer some info for your audience. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department does not require a college degree to become a police officer (cap off at 99k)or a correctional officer (cap off at 71k). LVMPD still offers one of the best retirement packages around. They also offer several entry level positions for civilians that do not require a degree with very nice payscale. Free medical insurance, deferred comp offer, and company paid pension. HVAC and Electrician positions (40-50/hr) in Las Vegas also pay very very well, only requiring a training program and certification after a few months. Both are big business and offers the opportunity to start your own business. No State Tax, Low cost of living. Keep up the great work!!!

This was one of the best episodes because of the perspective Romeo Brown was able to provide. I felt that when he was talking about how he was humbled and had to get a job at Costco. I'm in a similar situation where it's very humbling this current point in life I'm going through. To hear the encouragement to keep moving forward is exactly what I need when I'm at work feeling depressed. I needed to hear this today. Thank y'all for what you do, I've been down since episode one and I have learned so much about finance it's unreal and y'all giving it away for free 99! Blessings on Blessings to y'all man forreal

This is your best episode yet. Derrick really broke down numbers and processes for people that may not have the knowledge on how things work.
