    Flipping with no money down... in Hawaii? You heard that right. Greg Gaudet actually considers himself "risk-averse" and still holds a full-time job, but he's able to make nice chunks of change by hustling to find deals and managing rehabs for Brandon's team on Maui. Today, Greg walks us through his journey from "rock bottom," including bouts with addiction and homelessness, to living the life of his dreams, buying a Porsche cash, and owning a handful of properties free and clear. You'll learn the right way to approach investing in condos, how to bring value to a potential partner or mentor, how Greg manages risk by keeping his living expenses low, and the mindset shifts that allowed him to 1) get clean and 2) "get out of his own way" in the real estate business. This is truly one of the most powerful stories we've told on the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast, and it's guaranteed to get your wheels spinning!
