The Gold Collar Investor

Jul 18, 2022

In today’s show, Pancham interviews Jens Nielsen - certified high-performance coach, full-time real estate investor, and principal of Open Doors Capital.

With a successful IT career of 25 years, Jens realized that it was not maximizing his potential and discovered real estate investing as a way to diversify his income! Now with over 1,700 apartment units and has done more than 20 deals, he is now helping individuals realize the strong cash flow and equity growth in real estate investments.

Get inspired from this episode as Jens shares his journey to financial independence and the push he needed to eventually quit his W2 job of 25 years. He'll also discuss the mindset shift that led him to explore real estate investing and the specifics of his investment deal.

Listen and enjoy the show!



“Real estate is really an avenue that you can take because you can be extremely passive if you want to, you can be active, you can be somewhere in the middle, but you have a lot of control over income and your success in that space.”
