Being wrong is one of the best things to happen to me.

But it also sucks. The best way to learn is from others’ mistakes. I’ve made plenty of mistakes, but I’ve also had incredible success, and I want you to learn from me.

My name is Adrian Smude, and I went from an evicted tenant to a highly profitable and financially free investor teaching across the country living my dream life, all by investing in mobile homes “with the dirt”.

This book is a collection of what I’ve learned from 20 years of landlording and the stories along the way. It is written so you can easily learn from my mistakes and take advantage of key takeaways at the end of each chapter. Some of the topics and stories include:

  • How I find great deals by wearing neon yellow
  • How I increased my monthly income over 800% with a 1031 exchange
  • How to encourage sellers to finance your purchase
  • Why you shouldn’t “steal in slow motion”
  • How a goat taught me a lesson on inspecting mobile homes
  • The 6 common myths keeping investors from cashing in

The journey wasn’t always pretty, and this isn’t a get rich quick book. But if you are willing to take action and try a niche corner of the real estate market, then this is the book for you.
