Make It Big, Lose It All, and Earn Back Even More with Josh Altman

9 comments

How would you like this to be your life?

Play football in college with a bunch of future NFL players.

Move to Los Angeles after college and become a millionaire by age 26.

Currently be the star of a Bravo TV show, the premier realtor for Hollywood’s elite, and sell 1 million dollars a day in properties.

I’m guessing that’s a yes.

Here’s what you might not know about this story.

When Josh Altman, the star of Million Dollar Listing and the most successful realtor in Los Angeles currently, first moved to LA he had no money and could only afford to rent a spot on a couch in a frat house for $200 a month.

He worked in a mail room for a year before he and his brother earned enough money to buy their first property.

After making his first million, he lost everything and had to shutter his mortgage business 6 months later.

This is why I love hosting  The School of Greatness. I get to hear the authentic, whole story of the super successful, which helps me see how I can follow suit.

Josh and I met on a photo shoot we were both being featured in and I was struck by his authenticity.

When I had him in my studio for this interview, I found the same thing.

Despite being filmed 10 months out of the year for a major reality TV show, Josh keeps it real and openly shares his stories of failure and success in the hope that others can learn from his experiences.

Not only did I learn from him, but I loved acknowledging him for how hard he works, for how he applies sports to business, and how much he loves his job.

Welcome to a candid look at how to win big, lose big, and make it all back with hustle in Episode 233 with Josh Altman.
