Cody didn’t come from a rich family and his parents were hard worker individuals. When he was young, he wanted to be a 9th-grade history teacher or marine biologist. In high school, he always got in trouble and fights. Cody didn't know what he wanted to do, therefore, decided to follow in his father's footsteps and joined the U.S. Navy.
Later, Cody turned into a real estate investor. But it was a challenging journey for him. The momentum fades away when having no deal within 9 months. Fortunately, he found the right mentor who teaches him a lot about real estate and fills in all the missing information. Cody acquired knowledge to increase his skills and capability. He learned the language of real estate and the psychology of dealing with people. With wholesaling, Cody became a millionaire at 28, and multi-millionaire at 30 years old.
Authenticity and enthusiasm has really helped him succeed in his real estate career. Therefore, he emphasized stop trying to be something you’re not and be authentic. Cody believes that authentic people attract results, good relationships, and build a good rapport. Furthermore, people will respect, listen, and connect to you more with your simplicity and authenticity.
Cody became clever and nerd in marketing and branding, and how he structures deals. As he figured out how to master the money game, he started losing the excitement of earning more money and buying stuff. Currently, aside from spending more time and experience with his wife and children, and as a man with a good heart, Cody pursues his passion for animal conservation and working with kids.
He found ways to realize his ambition to be with kids, influence, and impact them. This is through running and funding charities for underprivileged kids, tutoring them, giving school supplies, and helping them develop their ability to play sports!
