Episode 85 - The $39 Million Dollar Woman w/Mandy Branham

Gary chats in this episode with good friend Mandy Branham, an investor and CEO of Solutions Driven who has experienced tremendous growth in the past few years and built an incredible investment portfolio. Gary and Mandy discussed the art of creating the life and lifestyle you desire, through investing, joint ventures, attracting money for JV, and that it’s ALL about the mindset and the belief in yourself! They also discussed the current market conditions, where things may be headed according to Mandy, and if you’re a potential investor sitting on the sidelines whether now is a good time to get into the game. The advice shared in this podcast from Mandy can kick start ANY investment portfolio! Gary’s quote for this show: “Haters are people that have forgotten their own dreams.” – K. West.
