Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that mindset is paramount. Today we're joined by Melanie McDaniel of Freestyle Capital Group, who is walking proof that the moment you shift from victim-thinking to growth orientation is the moment your journey begins. Melanie spends most of her time building relationships with strategic partners who are the best operators in the business in their investment specialty. She attends conferences, training, and networking events to stay abreast of who’s who in the business, to learn what changes are happening in the industry, and to continue to grow her professional network. She spends a significant amount of time conducting due diligence on sponsors, projects, market economics, and she negotiates, structures, and presents only the best opportunities to her investor-partners. She is a firm believer that what you consume through media should be a force for empowerment and growth: this is what moved her from “Go to school and get a job, live within your means” to “There is no cap on your wealth. There is nothing you can’t do if you want it bad enough.” Tuning in you'll hear what she's working on now, how she just closed three back-to-back deals, and a breakdown of Freedom Funds' various timelines and business models. Plus, you’ll get a detailed rundown of everything on her due diligence checklist and learn how she forged the connections that have set her up for an exponential 2022!
