in Business Administration and a Minor in Communications. Although a full-time student and college
athlete, Josh was already driven to succeed in his career. After graduation, he obtained his Series 6, 63,
66 and life and health insurance licenses, and worked as a Financial Advisor from 1997-2004.

estate full time. He was able to combine his knowledge of Financial Investing with real estate to create a
very successful business, which quickly grew. In turn he began training and teaching apprentice partners
and students. He founded Strategic Real Estate Coach in 2007, and since then has been involved in 700+
wholesale, rehab, rental, foreclosure, pre-foreclosure and short sale transactions, and taught thousands
of investors how to replicate his success. Josh has vast knowledge and experience in helping coaching
clients, mentor students and apprentice partners from across the US in finding, structuring, negotiating
and closing various types of transactions for a profit.

He has bought and sold over 700 properties in 25 states, and currently holds a robust rental portfolio of
cash-flowing properties. He is the founder of a variety of successful businesses including Freeland
Ventures, Strategic Real Estate Coach, and several others. Josh lives in Northeast, Ohio with his wife Lisa
Marie and three children. Josh, along with Glenn Lytle, are the co-founders of Freeland Ventures.
