I turned a failed basketball career and a restaurant job into an empire that generates multiple seven figures per year and employs 50 people. But let’s start from the beginning.
My senior year of high school, something happened that derailed my basketball career. I’ll spare you the details, but I can tell you this - when basketball was no longer part of my life… I had enormous ambition and it needed somewhere to go.
So I went all in at my job as a waiter because I quite literally had nothing else. I worked relentlessly to figure out how, as a 17 year old kid, I could make as much money as possible from that restaurant to put myself through college.
There was no pile of cash waiting for me from mom and dad.
So I kept the restaurant job through college, graduated debt-free, and worked as a police officer. For years, I saved aggressively and then invested as much as I could into rental properties in California.
My strategy was working well until the market in California completely changed. The success I created to that point was good, but it was never going to be enough to give me the freedom I was looking for. I realized I needed a system to build wealth that would truly stand the test of time.
A system that could overcome changes in the market. A system that could succeed amid uncertainty. A system that would allow me to sleep soundly at night knowing my finances are taken care of no matter what is happening in the world.
So I spent the next 20 years creating that system.
From real estate investing, to personal finance hacks, to the stock market, and everything in between… I have quite literally tried it all. And after decades of highs and lows, massive wins and crushing defeats - I have distilled these efforts into a wealth building framework that anyone in a W-2 job can follow to achieve their financial goals.
I call what I built my Financial Fortress and I’ve created the David Greene Mastermind to help people like you build your Financial Fortress so you too can build wealth that really lasts.
