Amy welcomes Charlie Hardage to today’s Performance Mindset podcast. Charlie grew up with a middle-class mindset, and after years of playing the long, slow game, he discovered real estate as a way to reach financial and time freedom. Today, Charlie invests full-time in apartments and provides opportunities for others looking to grow their wealth and achieve their goals. Charlie and his team look for underperforming apartment complexes and then use an intricate strategy for each property, working to mitigate risk through due diligence and experience to provide excellent returns for investors. He believes there is a better way to retire, and he and his team are on a mission to help others.
