“I had a Dream to Make It in Life”

“I had a dream to make it in life”

Paul Kazanofski knew college wasn’t for him.  He was an entrepreneur since he was a kid, coming from humble beginnings in the worst part of town.  No drinking, drugs, or gambling like most kids in his area.  Paul had a dream.  A big dream.  You’ll love his story.

He started flipping houses in Nashville five years ago – and has closed 200+ deals since then.  He’s seen good times and bad times, and kept his standards high.  Paul believes that guys like him can make a change in this nation – one person at a time.  He wants to do this by educating others on what works and what doesn’t work in real life – not just what you read in a book or see on TV.  Paul believes in having a mentor – one that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.  He’ll tell you how he has done it.

Word is out about Paul’s big dreams – A&E TV calls it “Bid, Build, and Design” – a show about what he does day to day.  It ain’t all pretty.  Or easy.  Paul will share the good, the bad, and the ugly with us – and how to avoid common traps he sees new people make.

Join us at REIN’s General Meeting on Monday, May 12th at 7 pm to hear Paul’s dreams – past, present, and future, and how you can grow your own business and investments using his goal-setting ideas, his mentoring ideas, and his experiences.  It will be 90 minutes of full-blast Paul, plus your Q&A, that you won’t want to miss.

The Only Thing Constant is Change

Experienced Investors Share Stories and Secrets of Their Success in a Changing Marketplace

Join us at REIN’s General Meeting to meet three ladies who have successfully made change work for them – and hear the story and learning they got from a major financial loss they took on a project.

Darbi Bolton began her working life in the music industry.  Unexpected shifts led her to real estate seven years ago.  Darbi was a short sale specialist for more than four years, until that market changed, too.  For the past year, she and her two business partners have assembled quite a team to take on Nashville-area renovation and rehab projects.

Anje Dowler trained and worked as a Licensed Massage Therapist for many years, providing care and comfort to others through self-employment in her personal service business.  Then, real estate called her.  Anje got her real estate license in 2011 and hasn’t looked back.

Jenny Bell comes from a school administration background, having been a principal for many years.  After retirement from that field, she wanted to reinvigorate her love for the construction industry with property renovations.darbi


Darbi, Anje, and Jenny now work together daily to find, fund, fix, and flip neglected properties.  They will explain what they do – and what they don’t do – and why.  Plus, they’ll answer questions from the crowd.  Come hear what they have learned, so you can minimize your chance of loss and build your investments better.
