There’s one word that describes me the best: Relentless. Whenever life knocks me down, I bounce back harder and stronger. I keep going and I don’t stop until I achieve my goals.

Growing up, my mother called me a “Renaissance Man.” Leonardo da Vinci was such a man. He lived according to the philosophy that man’s potential for growth and improvement knew no limits. He wasn’t “merely” a painter and a sculptor, an inventor, and a scientist. He also worked out, drank wine, and lived life to the fullest extent.

During a recent interview, I was asked to share what my “typical” day looks like. Like many of you, a typical day has been anything but typical for me during quarantine.

Why do I follow this routine? Because I want to be the best leader and CEO that I can be. In areas where I am weaker, I have no problem hiring and surrounding myself with people that are smarter than me. Great leaders build great teams. Great teams make great companies. Great companies make great products and services that improve peoples’ lives in a meaningful way. DiversyFund is such a company.

Here at DiversyFund, we are in the business of hope. And we could all use a little hope these days, right?

The rich get richer in economic downturns because they buy at discounts. You see, recessions give them the opportunity to buy alternative investments at temporarily reduced prices. These alternative investments include cashflow positive, tangible assets such as multifamily properties (like apartment complexes). While most Americans are panicking, the wealthy swoop in and buy up even more at even cheaper prices.

Historically, this kind of investing was only available to ultra-high net worth individuals. Until the JOBS Act was passed eight years ago, investing in alternative investments was reserved for Venture Capitalists, Hedge Funds, and Accredited Investors. Most-likely, you are not a member of this elite group. The JumpStart Our Business Startups, or JOBS Act, reduced those limitations, opening them up to YOU—the everyday investor.

I actually created the concept for DiversyFund after the Great Recession of 2008. I cofounded the company in 2016 and launched The DiversyFund Growth REIT. We are making formerly off-limit investments available to everyday investors just like you. You can get started today using our convenient, easy-to-use investment platform for as little as $500. Take it one step further, investing $500 per month, you will build wealth on an exponential level.
