Leaving their lucrative, fast-paced silicon valley careers to pursue a business they knew very little about was a scary move — but it proved to be one of the best decisions of their lives. In this episode, you will hear how J. Scott and his wife Carol’s decision to chose family over careers, using real estate investing, gave them the financial freedom and time they wanted to raise their kids and live the quality lifestyle of their dreams.
J. Scott (he goes by “J”) is a full-time entrepreneur and investor living in the suburbs of Washington, DC. J is an engineer and business guy by education and spent much of his early career in Silicon Valley (California), where he held management positions at several Fortune 500 companies, including Microsoft and eBay. In 2008, J and his wife Carol decided to leave their 80-hour work weeks and the constant business travel behind. They quit their corporate jobs, moved back East, got married, started a family and decided to try something new. That something new ended up being real estate. In the past nine years, they have bought, built, rehabbed, sold, lent-on and held over $40 million in properties. J runs the popular website 123Flip.com and is the author of three books on real estate investing, including his best-selling, The Book on Flipping Houses. His books have sold over 100,000 copies in the past five years and have helped investors from around the world get their start with real estate.
