#159: Thomas Chappell- Develop an Authentic Rapport

“I had to come into the mindset that fear doesn’t exist and that’s why I tell people don’t use the words try, hope and fear because those words kill you because we are our own worst critics. “- Thomas Chappell  


Today I am interviewing Thomas Chappell. He is an investor, flipper and the Founder of the Black Inland Empire Real Estate Investment Club. He has been in real estate for 10 years and for the past few years he has been working on educating the local community by hosting monthly events in which I have presented in the past. Thomas is in the process of creating a real estate show and other real estate related ventures in the near future. His meeting is held the third wednesday of every month and I’ll be presenting on April 19, 2023


Thomas Chappell: Started his investing career by finding mentors and then getting into wholesaling. He knew he needed to turn his life around when he became a single father and that’s when real estate became a part of his life. His first mentors Andy Teasley along with Stephen McKee and a few others, were the catalyst for the start of his real estate career.
