On this episode of The Rich Equation Podcast, Ashish is joined by Justin Helvey, a long-time welder who left his lucrative job to become an investor and house-flipper. I met Justin from a Couples Mastermind we both participated in. We came from very different backgrounds and it was a surprise how we had an immediate friendship. Justin is part of Limitless Real Estate Brokerage together with his partner Katie. The two moved to Arizona in 2021 from Wyoming in search of a new community and new opportunities for growth.
In this episode, Justin talks about how he started his journey to become a realtor. With no knowledge and experience, he shared how he made the transition to switch careers and the reason why he pivoted to real estate. He shared his life as a welder when he was starting out, which turned out to be a lucrative career for him. But while there’s a huge demand for welders and it pays really well, he realized it didn’t provide the security he wanted and it wasn’t aligned with his long-term goals. We talked about choices in life and how we are in control of what happens to our lives more than we think. He shared his goals of building a robust rental portfolio and growing his real estate business. He also talked about his new passion project, The Hidden Boardroom.
