    #183: Bronson Hill- Balancing Ego and Authenticity as a Real Estate Entrepreneur

    "Capital raising is sales, it's really working with people using a lot of the same skill sets." -Bronson Hill
     
    Today I am interviewing my friend, Co host of ITI and past mentee, Bronson Hill. He is the CEO and Founder of Bronson Equity, a passive investing and multi family syndication company.

Bronson is an educator and has written a report called The Single Best Investment Strategy During (or After) a Pandemic. He is an author, podcast host, the creator of the Advanced Real Estate Investing Summit, a guest speaker on numerous podcasts, a presenter at various conferences and meetings and so much more.

Now a few years later, he is a Multi Family Syndicator and financial coach.
