My guest on the show is Doug Crowe, an adventurer, not in the sense of endurance but in his desire and hunger for life experience. He has travelled to 42 countries and done all 7 continents. He learnt to fly aeroplanes and enjoys scuba diving, speaking and writing.
Life is a journey of discovery and we all have a path to find and follow, some of us struggle to find one and others, like Doug are hungry to discover them all.
As a child of the 60’s he wanted to be an astronaut (didn’t we all?). He looked at becoming a commercial pilot, but his eyesight had other plans. So instead, he went to college and got a degree in media and TV and went into the industry.
While earning $3/hr as the lighting director on a TV show he heard a guest interview with Robert Allan about no money investing. He didn’t have the money for the $5K weekend boot camp but could afford to buy the book. It changed his life. He followed the book, took action and made more money in his first deal than he had in his job for the whole year. The secret was always to buy with a profit.
“You don’t make money when you sell you make money when you buy”
He went on to develop a successful real estate business and a training company teaching others to do the same. That lead to one of the first real estate radio shows and lots of speaking gigs. The 2009 financial crash took it all.
“I had 19 foreclosures and went from being a millionaire
to $54 and living in the basement of a foreclosed home.”
Our story is about that rebirth and rediscovery of identity, who we are and why we do what we do.
“We die naked and broke just as we came in.”
Today Doug is back in the driving seat of his life through publishing, he is an investor, brand specialist, and an accomplished writer. He and his team support CEOs and business owners to tell their stories by ghostwriting books that sell.
