In case you haven’t figured it out by now, my name is Joshua Fulenwider. I’m an author, entrepreneur, and real estate investor. On top of that I’m a cool guy (just ask my Mom).
If you haven’t read my book yet (and you should because it’s awesome), I don’t have some tragic backstory. I had a normal upbringing and my parents were always supportive. I did struggle with depression and low self esteem after bombing out of the Navy for medical reasons.
Like most people I then went college, accumulated student loans and graduated into the worst job market in recent history (2008). I struggled with depression some more and hated feeling like I was at the mercy of employers. I got into real estate investing with the support of my wife and we began accumulating rentals.
I focused learning everything I could and the more I learned for my business (rentals) the better I did in my career. For over a decade we built up our rental portfolio while I advanced through my career until I realized that I was just making other people rich.
I’m happily unemployed now and in the process of launching two businesses. I count myself lucky that I have an amazing and supportive wife. Although her spousal decision making must be impaired since she settled for me. Since launching a couple of businesses wasn’t time consuming enough I decided to write my first book “What We Should Teach Our Children About Money”.
With the book I am hoping to spare my daughter and other people the financial struggles I endured. With my businesses I am hoping to help people have more healthy lives and bring some fun into their lives. This is part of my purpose.
Have you figured out your purpose yet?
