Jared Lichtin is 28 year old attorney and real estate investor from Cleveland, Ohio, and producer of the Flip Podcast. Jared is licensed to practice law in the great state of Texas, and moved up to Ohio to work in oil & gas after he took the bar exam. He started flipping houses while working, and realized that it was a great way to earn money on the side from a full-time job. However, he was sick of traveling and working long hours, and making money investing in real estate wasn’t easy while working full-time. He had been wanting to transition for a while, but when he got a good deal on another house in December 2014, he realized that his job was holding him back from succeeding in real estate, and not the other way around. Jared has always tried to have something on the side to make money, but as his house flipping had picked up recently, he knew that flipping houses could be a great transition from his full-time job into entrepreneurship.
So, Jared quit his job in January 2015 in order to focus on his real estate investing full time, and create Flip, a podcast that teaches people how to flip houses on their own. Flip lets listeners follow along with him flipping a house, while he teaches them the basics, and freeing up their time for what’s important. Jared is passionate about teaching people how to use real estate investing as an avenue to create a second income for themselves, so they can quit their 9-5, and attain the dream of more freedom, time, money and happiness. Jared is a huge proponent of taking risks to break free from a job, if it’s preventing you from maximizing your potential in life. Jared is originally from Cleveland, Ohio. He received his bachelor’s degree from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and his law degree from South Texas College of Law in 2012.
