WHAT IS FLIP EMPIRE?
Flip Empire is a resource and soon-to-be community of successful real estate investors, run by me, Alex Pardo, to teach you proven strategies for running and automating a successful real estate investing business.
WHO IS ALEX PARDO?
I'm a family guy, entrepreneur, real estate investor, coach, adventurer, sports enthusiast, and love helping people.
I'm the founder of FlipEmpire.com and its parent company, Creative RE-Solutions, LLC, and have flipped well over 300 properties.
I graduated from college in 2002 with a Finance and M.I.S. degree, and went to work for General Electric's Financial Management Program (in their Consumer Finance division). At the time, I had aspirations of becoming a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, but sometime during my third month on the job, after working an average of 75 hours a week, I quickly realized that I wasn't going to create the lifestyle I envisioned working for someone else.
I completed my two-year commitment to the company, and fired my bosses in January 2005. A few months later, I went backpacking around Europe & Africa with a few buddies, and while partying in Ibiza, Spain, I received a call from a friend who invited me to a "Marketing for Deals" boot camp that coming month.
This was my "fork in the road". I had financed my 3-month trip on my credit card, was in debt, and had no income. The cost of the event was $997, and after a few minutes of internal debate, I bought the ticket, and booked my flight. I had committed to start a real estate business, and was going to make it happen one-way or the other. Less than two months after that boot camp, I closed my first deal and made $44,000 (which almost replaced my income with GE)!
WHY I DO WHAT I DO
While God is the foundation of my life, my family is my primary motivation, and my ultimate "Why"! My wife, Natalie, and I were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Arianna, in May 2015, and we are looking forward to growing our family. The best part about this business is the freedom to enjoy life with my family, give back and help others, while not being constrained by the typical "9 - 5".
As you read my blog and listen to my podcasts, you'll also learn about:
MY HOBBIES & INTERESTS
I enjoy long walks on the beach... (insert screeching record scratch)
Just kidding of course :)
On a serious note, I love traveling, reading (non-fiction), relaxing with my family, boating, fitness, sports, fantasy football. Also, I am constantly striving to become the best version of myself, through personal development.
HOW FLIP EMPIRE BEGAN
