In this episode, Todd talks with Jay Helms about how getting fired from his W2 job was one of the best things that happened to him because it allowed him to focus on expanding his real estate business.

Jay Helms built the W2 Capitalist community to help families eliminate their financial stress. He climbed the corporate ladder and then started investing in real estate in 2014. He built a portfolio of 328 units that includes single family residences, small multi-family residences and apartment syndications.
