EP 143: From Bankruptcy (Twice) to $1.4 Million In Income Producing Properties with Jennifer Grimson

You do not need to start with a ton of money to build your own real estate empire. On today’s episode, we talk with Jennifer Grimson, about her journey from bankruptcy to financial independence and how she was able to move through crisis to reach her goals.

Jennifer has created over $1.4 million in income producing investments while working a full-time job. We discuss how perseverance and grit helped Jennifer overcome challenges, why she ultimately chose to be a passive investor instead of an active one, and the three numbers she’s always has in her head to make sure she’s on the right track to financial freedom. We also talk about how success comes from being comfortable with the uncomfortable.

Jennifer Grimson was a single mother who twice found herself broke and hopeless. The second time, she rebuilt by creating small “empires” for financial independence. She created over $1.4M in income producing investments with a W2 and some grit. In 2019, Jennifer created the Micro Empire Podcast to share her story and to pull back the curtain on the path to financial independence. She invests in three short term rentals, multifamily, and businesses.

On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Jennifer including:

  • What a micro empire is
  • How to rebuild after going broke twice
  • The three steps to get you through a crisis
  • Why it’s important to know what wealth means to you
