After more than a decade of success on Wall Street, where Taylor traveled the country constructing investment portfolios for families that have $50-$100 million to invest, he decided to step away and launch LifeGoal Investments, to get back to his roots.
Taylor and his LifeGoal team now sit at the intersection of Wall Street, Main Street, and Social Media.
LifeGoal’s mission is to empower all Americans with not only the education, but also the investment solution, that was previously exclusive to for the top 1%..
LifeGoal Investments builds the same sophisticated portfolios that Taylor and his team once built for the Ultra Rich on Wall Street, but instead package it inside a single ETF priced at $10/share, and available to anyone with a brokerage account- like the people in the blue collar, one redlight town, Taylor grew up in.
In addition, Taylor and his team have grown a large and incredibly engaged social media presence where they educate daily on investing & personal finance- Taylor’s got a knack of explaining complex topics in a way a fourth grader can understand.
The best part about LifeGoal Investments, Taylor’s Co-Founder grew up in the bedroom down the hall- they’re brothers.

Detailed Summary of “My Story”
Hey there! My name is Casey Franchini. I live in Memphis, TN. I have a husband and 3 kids aged 12, 9 and 5.
I am a real estate investor and rental property coach. Passive income from single-family rentals has allowed me the time-freedom to live life on my own terms while creating generational wealth one brick at a time.
I grew up in Southern California and lived there for 30 years. I went to college at California State University, Fullerton, and studied Public Relations, Marketing, and Business.
After working for a Public Relations Firm in Newport Beach, CA, and making the 1.5 hr drive home in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I realized that there must be more to life. My dad had always taught me to not be a part of the herd and make my own path.
I earned my California Real Estate Broker license in 2007, which I still have today. I found my niche with real estate investors during the Great Recession and became the investor’s “bird dog” and buyer’s agents find them amazing investment flips through short sales, expired listings, and REOs.
I saw the power in real estate so my new husband and I started looking for rental houses ourselves. We found many at the time but didn’t have the guts to pull the trigger.
We moved to Memphis in 2013 for a great job opportunity for my husband. Moving with us were our newborn, 2-year-old daughter, and cat. We knew no one. I created a community around me by volunteering in the neighborhood and city and making friends.
I thought Memphis was a gold mine of cheap houses and an investor’s dream. But we had just put a large chunk of money down on our primary first residence and without me bringing in a second income, saving money was slow. I wanted a rental house and with no excuses, I turned my crafting hobby into an Etsy business. In less than 2 years I had saved up over $20k from selling $5 personalized stuffed bunnies, personalized wedding hangers, bridesmaid gifts, etc…
With all of my real estate knowledge working with investors, and my passion for real estate, we bought our first rental property. We rehabbed it ourselves, as we had done with a few other properties owned by a family, and started seeing cash flow.
Now, I earn a second income from our rental property business bringing in $100,000 per year in rental income. My philosophy is quality over quantity. We have made this dream come true with only eight single-family rentals and I easily self-manage… I no longer have the mom guilt of not working a 9-5 job. By making smart investments, picking quality tenants, and doing quality repairs, I spend almost zero hours managing our rental properties.
There are no excuses not to make it in real estate. No excuses not to take the first step. In one house, I was 8 months pregnant pulling up damaged hardwood floors with a crowbar, and then a month later nursing my newborn on the hardwood floor in a bedroom while my husband was gutting the kitchen.
The best thing about real estate is that you don’t have to wait to see the benefits and realize the hard cash in your hand. The very first property, if you do it right, will make a big difference in your life. It’s addicting and a new way of life is easily found by just starting with one rental property.
Now, through my Success with Rental Properties Coaching Program, I teach aspiring real estate investors how to change the course of their future by guiding them on a successful journey to cashing their FIRST rental property rent check.
The founders, Dustin Rosenberg and Jonathan Yoo, originally met in San Diego while working for the same mortgage company. After about a decade of working together, the two decided it was time to start a mortgage brokerage of their own.
Convoy Home Loans serves several types of borrowing personas—lending to people that are interested in investment real estate to luxury homes. But what makes Convoy completely different is that they can make almost any situation work.
Their access to lending partners allows them to make loans of almost any size to people with assets in forms that most banks will not accept. This allows the group to customize loan packages in ways that traditional banks cannot due to regulations and risk exposure.
Convoy was ranked the #5 broker in the country for loan volume in 2022.
My name is Mike Newton I’m a Police Officer, SWAT Operator, and full-time Single Dad! I grew up on Section 8 housing as poor as you can be in the US. I’m the oldest of 6 kids from 3 dads and was raised in a single-mother household. I started learning about real estate investing as a way to climb out of generational poverty. I bought my first house hack, a duplex in Seattle, in 2018.
After that, I started looking into other markets. I wondered if there was anywhere better than overpriced anti-landlord Seattle for me to invest in. This is what lead me to the Midwest. I now own 14 rental units. 1 triplex, 2 duplexes, and 7 single-family homes in Indiana!
I’m very close to retiring from my 9-5 as a cop and enjoying some of that financial freedom I keep hearing so much about!

Hey Everyone! My name is Jason Pritchard and I own a real estate investment company that’s based in Fresno, CA. Our company’s focus is to identify great deals that we can buy, fix, and either sell or add to our rental portfolio. Prior to starting in the real estate industry, I worked in corporate America for over 15 years. Like many of you, I followed the traditional path of going to school, getting a good job, and slowly working my way toward financial freedom. As I become more and more frustrated with the lack of growth in my corporate life I started focusing on how to make my transition into real estate investing.
In 2014 I burned the boats and jumped into the world of real estate full-time. Since 2014 we have flipped or wholesaled close to 400 properties, I am a licensed realtor with over 70 other like-minded agents at our brokerage, and we own a rental portfolio valued at over $10,000,000. I am also the board chair for a local nonprofit organization that focuses on providing affordable housing throughout California. Most importantly I have a passion to help people that were like me before I started my real estate journey.
