How A Marine Corps Reservist Operates Million Dollar Businesses with Dustin Baldwin.

Episode: 163

Join your host David Pere and Alex Felice in this episode with guest Dustin Baldwin as they discuss how Dustin juggles it all as an entrepreneur, real estate investor, and a marine corps reserve.

When Dustin once transitioned to a corporate setting, he found himself in a cycle he didn't anticipate. Every day, it was nothing but Excel Sheets, paranoia, corporate drama, and all that's also common to military bureaucracy. The only difference this time? It's boring beyond belief.

In this episode, Dustin talks about how he started his premium smoked cocktail kit company, how his prison transportation services business taught him how to 'never forget the journey,' as well as how lucrative a room-by-rent unit can possibly get with the right approach.

About Dustin Baldwin:

Together with a friend from the US Marine Corps, Dustin shared a love for bourbon, craft beer, and German Shepherds. After following similar paths obtaining their MBAs and a shared entrepreneurial drive, the two decided they wanted to start a business together. Dustin brought the idea of starting a company aimed at veterans and Old Fashioned drinkers to benefit wounded combat veterans with the sale of their products, cocktail smokers, and woods fuels. The name was thus born: "Smoked Fashion Co."

Over the next couple of months, Dustin and his partner did a lot of brainstorming, built prototypes, and completed experiments. They found that the wood fuels they created enhanced the flavor of all drinks, including cocktails, red wines, and dark beers.

The Smoked Fashion Co. vision was then formed. They would then become a company that features the best bartenders' smoked drink recipes and provide premium tools to make the best-smoked cocktails ever indulged.

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! - Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
