In today’s show, Pancham interviews Ken McElroy - real estate investment expert, syndicator, rich dad advisor, educator, and author of Return to Orchard Canyon, and my role model.

Ken McElroy has been in the investing industry for three decades. With his years of investing experience, he already has 250 employees, a development, construction, property management, and utility company. He also owned about a billion-dollar worth of investments - a true entrepreneur indeed!

In this episode, grasp the current state of the economy as Ken shares the possible supply and demand issue, massive disruptions from migration patterns, and the debt deflation in real estate investing from his point of view.

He will also share his passion for educating investors through his Youtube channel and with his self-written books (that my 9-year old son can read!) so you can’t miss this episode!


“The journey’s all started from one 2-bedroom 2-bath that just cash flowed $120 a month and the rest has just been a massive learning process.”
