About Brandon Barnes
Brandon Barnes is a real estate investor and owner of REI Live! Atlanta, a monthly meetup group. After being fired from his job as a production supervisor, he made an immediate pivot and chose to become a real estate investor and master a strategy called wholesaling. Many times, Brandon was faced with a difficult choice, get another job and spend years trapped in a cubicle or work toward becoming a successful entrepreneur; with his back against the wall, he chose to keep his eyes on the prize as an entrepreneur. He quickly scaled his real estate company within 1 year and then got fired, but this time was different: he fired himself. This gave Brandon the flexibility to focus on building the business and leading his team. His team now operates his company successfully without his day-to-day involvement. In his free time, Brandon spends his time with his wife and four kids.
