BCF 313: Building Wealth with Steve Trang

Investor and coach Steve Trang and I sat down to talk about building wealth. After leaving his job at Intel, Steve pursued a career in real estate in 2007. Over the years, Steve found success as a real estate investor and entrepreneur. He’s had an incredible journey, so it was great to hear his thoughts on building wealth in today’s world.

Today, coaching is one of Steve’s passions. He shared his thoughts on finding a good mentor, and how important it can be for a person’s career. The right mentor can make all the difference. Coaching services are a great way to find your mentor.

We also talked about work ethic, being comfortable, and being satisfied. A lot of people are perfectly satisfied with their 9-5 day job. But if you’re not, it’s possible to get out of that cycle. As Steve says: You have to want the upside, and you have to be willing to pay the cost.

“Finding deals is the single most valuable skill.” Steve and I agree, if you can’t find deals, you’re not going to get far as an entrepreneur. It was great to hear Steve’s insights on how his team finds deals and opportunities. Sales techniques are an often-forgotten skill, so he also offered some tips on how to get those deals over the line.

Steve ended on some fantastic advice: Invest in yourself. No matter what happens – no matter how catastrophic – you’ve always got yourself.
