Episode 170


Mike has an absolute barn burner of an episode for you today. This one is so stinkin’ valuable that he can guarantee it’ll light a fire under you.

He sat down with Darin Davis, who's one of the savviest real estate investors Mike knows. Darin has survived multiple boom and bust cycles while consistently banking profits – all while guiding investors to safety and passive income.

In this episode, Darin reveals a special real estate play that is perfectly positioned for today's market conditions. It's called “preferred equity” and it could be your golden ticket over the next 2-3 years:

✅ Passive income with quarterly payments
✅ Superior security to common equity investments
✅ Potential to acquire properties at steep discounts
✅ Ideal for newbies and experienced investors alike

Darin explains it all in a way that only he can – complete with visceral metaphors, straight talk, and tons of wisdom from decades in the trenches.

Make sure you listen to the end because Darin put together some special resources to help you get educated on preferred equity. He delivered in a big way with guides, videos, webinars, and more.

Stop sitting on the sidelines wishing you had a piece of the real estate pie. This is your chance to get some skin in the game with way less risk than most plays out there.
