#25 Deborah Razo: Rehabs to Development & The Willingness to Move Forward

“Something happens in your life where you stop for a minute and you go, is this the life I really want to live? Am I really living my life to the fullest? I didn’t have a bad life, but it wasn’t the life I wanted. I was selling my time for money and I didnt have any more time to sell.” 

-Deborah Razo

Deborah Razo: began her investing career after a serious accident that forced her to be bed ridden for a year. Prior to her accident Deborah owned several businesses, one which was a design company that focused on entertainment and marketing packages for 20 years. Understanding that she no longer wanted to give away her time for money, during that year of recovery Deborah decided to look into passive income and that’s when she came across real estate and Robert Kiyosaki’s book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.” Since then Deborah has been a real estate investor for over a decade first starting out in flipping and is now a developer, purchases foreclosures in the Memphis tennessee area and owns single family and multi units. She is also a Sr. Leader for the Tony Robbins organization.
