Want to step out of your business and finally gain the freedom to think more strategically? Let Jefferson Lilly show you how!

Jefferson is a mobile home park investor, who went from sleeping on an air mattress on-site at his mobile parks to running a lean team and focusing his energy on raising millions from investors.

No matter what stage of your career you’re in or what your preferred strategy is, you’ll get a ton of value out of this high-level discussion about building a “2.0” business that serves you AND your team.

You’ll learn how Jefferson went from acquiring parks “deal by deal” to starting a fund, how he overcame fear to hire several six-figure employees, and how he incentivizes his team to maximize occupancy.

Also, Jefferson breaks down the criteria he uses to narrow down potential deals (including proximity to a Walmart)—AND reveals the four main ways he and his team reach out to mom-and-pop park owners.
