#1 - TRANSITIONING FROM 9 TO 5 EMPLOYEE TO A FULL-TIME BUSINESS OWNER AND ENTREPRENEUR WITH KAMIL DREZEK

By Ricardo Rodriguez & Matthew Mesick

On Episode #1 of the Profits Over Wages Podcast, we interview Kamil Drezek of Homes by MAK — an active real estate investor, entrepreneur, and FortuneBuilders coach.

About Kamil Drezek

Kamil immigrated from Poland when he was 15 to pursue the American Dream. He went to college and got a great job, but soon realized working for someone else wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. Kamil started his own business and started investing in real estate in 2012, and has done everything from wholesaling to quick cosmetic rehabs to new construction.

On today’s show he shares with us his journey, the challenges and lessons he’s learned, and what it takes to transition from being an employee to becoming your own boss and a real estate entrepreneur.
