There’s no way to sugarcoat it: getting started in syndication is hard. It would be easy to make excuses or let fear get the better of you, leaving you stuck where you are. Our guest today, Anthony Pinto, has let nothing stand in the way of him chasing financial freedom. As an active-duty Navy Office, currently stationed in Japan, Anthony has had every reason not to pursue syndication. However, he realized that he needed a way to transition out of the military and spent two months educating himself on real estate investing while he was below sea!
