    EPISODE 2: $2 Million Gamble

    Before hitting the road to Florida, Tucker rolls the dice on one last real estate deal in Oregon.
     
    Negotiations get tricky – as you'll hear in the audio recordings. Also tricky: tough conversations with his longtime employees who won't be making the move.
     
    Plus, we hop in the time machine -- back to 2008 -- to extract lessons from Tucker's last great entrepreneurial leap... and revisit a dramatic incident that he's never discussed publicly, until now.

    EPISODE 3: Welcome to Florida

    EPISODE 3: Welcome to Florida

    A wild cross-country road trip delivers Tucker to his adopted home state of Florida, where he's greeted by beautiful beaches and friendly faces.
     
    But with no routine and no professional contacts – plus a childcare curveball – he's stumbling out of the gate.
     
    All this as Tucker crams for a do-or-die construction licensing exam.
     
    In other words: we've physically "arrived" at our destination... but the real Journey has just begun.

    EPISODE 5: Everyone Has a Plan Until...

    With his plans imploding all around him, Tucker has to stay patient.
     
    But how do you do that when competing for real estate in Southwest Florida? This little market is so hot, it's being targeted by wealthy buyers from every corner of the globe.
     
    You do it by trusting a process perfected through years of experience... through a worldwide financial crisis, and at the height of a pandemic.
     
    Finally! Tucker's patience is rewarded when he gets a call from Bob.
     
    Bob owns a piece of prime waterfront property. And he wants to talk.

Honest and inspiring

Awesome show that shares the honest ups and downs of being a real estate investor/entrepreneur. I was feeling stuck in a rut as an investor and this show has motivated me to keep pushing forward and reminded me that the ups and downs are all a normal part of the journey when you want to play big in the game of life.
