Show Notes

Mattew Owens CPA, real estate investor and educator has renovated over 700 properties, owns hundreds of units in the Southeast, and runs a non-profit real estate education Meetup & company called “For Investors By Investors” (FIBI). He lives in southern California operating his business remotely from day one with his family.

Matt was inspired to his business by his father, who instilled in him his drive, ethics, and desire to be a better person. After his father passed away from cancer (when Matt was 26), Matt was motivated to change his direction – from being a CPA to being a real estate investor. He started his business in 2006. With some incredible success early on when the market crashed they nearly lost everything, but he did not give up. Losing over a Million dollars in equity and cash, he didn’t give up. Matt turned his energy to not only survive but thrive in this industry, and has built a diversified real estate empire.

The power of mindset and focus is extremely inspiring, and Matt is an amazing example of what it can do when focused correctly.
