Gentlemen, I am here with real estate mogul Brandon Turner. Brandon is a real estate investor, podcaster, bestselling author, entrepreneur, and founder of Open Door Capital LLC. He’s built a world-class real estate empire closing on a billion AUM, he’s recognized as one of the foremost experts in real estate and led the BiggerPockets podcast to 100 million downloads—just an all-around legend.

We talked about how he balances his time between business and family and how his faith and religion have shaped him into the amazing Dad he is today. Brandon explained how his success skyrocketed by not letting indecision become the decision, learning how to trust and manage risk, and also how to delegate instead of abdicating. And perhaps surprisingly, could his love of playing Monopoly have revealed the billion-dollar secret to success in real estate at a young age?

You’ll hear his thoughts on involving your kids in real estate deals, the importance of scheduling some “no kids connection time” with his wife, and what he’s doing with the BetterLife Tribe to donate a billion dollars to fight human trafficking. Brandon also talks about how he’s using AI and ChatGPT to create adorable bedtime stories in real time with his kids and how he makes time to play on their level, literally.

Last but not least, I asked Brandon a question that he’s never been asked before, and you’ll want to hear the incredibly moving story that came from it. This episode is jam-packed with much more, so buckle up and enjoy!

“Trust and risk are really the same thing. And the more I can trust something, the less risky it is. But nothing's risk free and nothing gets my full trust.” - Brandon Turner Share on X “The goal of life is not to make millions of dollars. The goal of life is to have the best life possible.” - Brandon Turner Share on X “I realized it was indecision that was a decision in itself. So I said, ‘I'm going to go all in. And I went all-in on mobile home parks.” - Brandon Turner Share on X “Compounding interest is a huge thing, but the compounding knowledge is so much more important.” - Brandon Turner Share on X “I don't want to enter heaven well rested.” - Tim Tebow Share on X

FRD is solving a huge problem for dads. Our culture has turned “Dad” into a joke. Go ahead, google Dad and you’ll find Dad Bod, Dad Jokes, Dad Weed, etc. Culturally, it’s a Homer Simpson mentality, and it’s BS.   

Our community is built for solid men. Men with range. Those who are badass, and know there’s still more to learn, together.  

Most guys find it hard to find “their crew.” Finding other committed men, who are successful in life, and want to put family first – these guys are rare. Is this you? 

In FRD, hundreds of men from all over the world show up for each other, to share resources and raise the bar of fatherhood (our core values.)

If you’re reading this, you want to grow.  Podcasts are great, but guys… when you’re ready to stop just listening to content, and want to JOIN the conversations – the FRD brotherhood is ready for you.
