Jason Hartman talks with Frank Corbin. There’s an old saying that goes, “Those who can, do. Those who can’t teach.” In many cases this is true. This saying needs to be modernized, however, because many who can, do – and then they go on to teach.
Such was the case with Frank Corbin. When Frank was very young, he had a “hunger”, as he put it, to become wealthy. After moving from Ghana to New York City, he watched his mother constantly struggle to pay the bills. Frank was determined not to get into this same situation. Frank was determined to become wealthy and eliminate money as an issue in his life. As a teenager, Frank worked many different jobs. After graduating from high school, he attended DeVry Institue in Toronto – which loaded him up with student loans and other debts.
In addition to his studies at DeVry, Frank also purchased every real estate course and real estate investment book he could get his hands on. As a result, Frank became convinced that purchasing and holding real estate was the easiest and quickest way to become wealthy.
At the age of 21, Frank purchased his first property – a $241,000 home in Toronto which he picked up for no money down, received $20,000 at closing and the property ended up providing him with $900 per month of positive cash flow. One year later, Frank had attained 4 more properties and was financially free.
After 15 years of buying properties, Frank became bored. He needed a new challenge. Frank saw people struggling financially. He couldn’t understand why people weren’t doing what he was able to do so easily. So he went about creating a course, the Remic Wealth Institute, which teaches his methods for finding and investing in real estate. While putting together the courses within Remic Wealth Institute, Frank identified another need people had that he new he could satisfy – obtaining credit despite having a poor credit history. “The 8 Strategies to Highly Effective Credit” was thus born.
