Kenneth, Jeffery, and Kerwin Donis are the guests this week on “Inside the minds of Today’s Millionaires”. Dwan talks to these 3 young brothers who have taken on the world of real estate investing. With just under two years under their belt, they have successfully made quite a name for themselves! In their first two deals alone, they brought in a check for $33,500. Within that first 13 months, they had wholesaled 13 deals, most of which occurred in the final 6 months. Their background is a humble one. They are 1st generation Americans from low-income and single mother household. They didn’t us that as an excuse, though! They were all accepted into varying college courses, but they didn’t stay on that path for long! They began reading books to help shape their mindset. It was that coupled with a trip to their mother’s home country, Guatemala, that really gave them the boost that they needed to make the shift into real estate investing full time. Learn more about these amazing brothers by visiting www.donisinvestmentgroup.com and by listening to their podcast, “The Real Estate Monopoly”.
