About Mr. Land Trust, Randy Hughes
He started life out on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. Randy's father was an alcoholic and his mother was left to raise four children on a clerk’s wages. None of his relatives owned their own business . . . everyone worked for wages.
His father charged the weekly groceries so that the family would have food on the table. There was no stable income for any future education much less the current needs of the family.
No one taught intellectual or financial direction in his schools or church. No blood relative had anything to offer other than “working for the man” at an hourly wage. Bank savings and financial security were what only the rich had. Randy was doomed for financial failure and unhappiness for the rest of his life.
From Nothing to Something
Randy knew that there MUST be a better way to live. He decided to break the cycle of poverty in his family genes. To succeed, he knew education came first. Randy graduated from Eastern Illinois University and began buying single-family homes for rental while in college. After college, Randy tried many different types of businesses. He always came back to the Single Family Home as the IDEAL investment. Since purchasing his first rental house in 1969, Randy hasn’t looked back!
Today, Randy has purchased over 200 houses. He has lived the life of having nothing and will not let that happen again. Randy’s primary goal now is to teach others how to break the cycle of poverty. Randy shares his story not to get sympathy. He shares it to let the public know that when you've had nothing, you learn the value of being careful with what you earn.
Randy also thinks his history is a reminder to others that if he can succeed from where he started, they can accomplish great things regardless of their current situation.
Randy teaches real estate investment courses throughout the United States. He has written Privacy and Asset Protection books as well as home study courses.
