Russ is a pro at networking. He’s also very talented at building and maintaining a community of like-minded people. We discuss with him the importance of these components of his business and how we can all be better cooperators within our industry and markets.

She has hustled her way to her goals without complaint. She has been a huge inspiration to me. I’m so lucky to be able to call her a friend and mentor. Please enjoy the show! If you’re looking for private lending, be sure to reach out to Kelli.
