Men On Purpose Podcast


Apr 29, 2019

When the market crashed in the late 2000’s, millions of Americans lost their homes—and most investors bailed out of the real estate business. Scott Carson, on the other hand, bought in, buying debt from banks and helping homeowners get back on their feet. He built a successful business on the principle of giving back, finding creative ways to help as many people as possible stay in their homes. So, what is the value proposition for investing with an open heart?

Scott is the founder and CEO of We Close Notes, a real estate investment firm based in Austin, Texas, that focuses on buying pools of distressed assets direct from banks and hedge funds. Scott has 18 years of experience in mortgage, finance and banking, and he has been actively buying notes on residential and commercial properties for 14-plus years. Scott is also a sought-after speaker and educator, working to help others learn the business of note investing and build their own lucrative real estate portfolios.

Today, Scott joins Emerald to explain how his personal experience as a ‘deadbeat borrower’ informed his calling to help homeowners get back on their feet. He shares the value in regularly expanding your comfort zone and discusses how to eliminate negative energy from your atmosphere. Scott also describes how entertaining his inner child feeds his creativity and offers insight around fostering a spirit of ‘coopetition.’ Listen in to understand Scott’s practice of sharing what he wants to accomplish and learn why the most successful people are also the most giving!
