Connor Steinbrook was a top online poker player from 2003-2011, and in 2011, on April 15th, the government shut down the websites and he lost almost a decade of his life overnight. Nobody wanted to hire what they thought was an ex-gambler so he quickly realized he had to create a job for himself. He tried insurance and network marketing and found himself into real estate. It was a rough start — he ended up facing bankruptcy with $65,000 in debt. He figured out how to do deals using a joint venture wholesaling strategy where he never meets the seller or buyer, doesn’t put up earnest money or option money directly and doesn’t go to closings — he does everything virtually. He went from JV wholesaling to regular wholesaling, into flipping houses retail and becoming financeable, and then began to keep houses and do some owner financing and creating notes. He then created Investor Army to teach new investors how to duplicate what he did even if they have no money….being this is the biggest handicap for new investors.
Danny Kerr learned two important things as a young age: to work hard and be humble in everything he does. At 20 years old, Danny took a leadership position for a franchise company and grew sales from $400,000 to $1,300,000 in one year. Such rapid growth was only possible through selecting top caliber franchisees and being an open, honest, and flexible coach to them. Growing that business launched Danny’s journey in developing companies, where he spent the next six years scaling businesses. Through these experiences, he decided to commit his life to assisting others to move past adversity and reach their full potential.
Danny has since left the franchising world and opened horizons to all trades business owners seeking guidance through their growth stages. Through authentic relationships and always putting his heart into what he does, Danny looks forward to continuing to make a difference in the lives of business owners everywhere.
Brian Safdari is the founder of College Planning Experts, America’s leading authority on how to send your child to the college of their choice without going broke. His story is one of incredible success and triumph over seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
After his sacrifice of not attending his dream college, making costly mistakes on the financial aid process, and getting in over $50,000 in student loan debt, Brian has devoted his life to helping parents get their kids accepted into their dream college without going broke.
Since 2004, Brian has helped over 7,500 families get into college, receive financial aid regardless of income, assets or student’s grades, and fund college without jeopardizing their retirement.
Brian has been featured in LA Times, Daily News, The Signal Newspaper, SCV TV, AM 1220 KHTS radio show, and as seen on many TV channels such as Fox 11’s Good Day LA show, Fox News, USA network, Bravo, E network, ABC family, Food Network, TLC, Tru TV, VH1, Animal Planet, Lifetime Movie Network, Oxygen, CNN, and much more.

For the last 15 years, Pat Dornan has been a Maryland licensed general contractor. He is also a MD registered home builder, Project Management Professional (PMP), and is EPA-certified for safe lead removal. He bought his first investment property in 2006 and has been a full-time investor for 4 years. Prior to that, Pat was an IT professional for 23 years where he invented the Internet (with 600,000 of his friends).
In January 2017, Pat founded Serenity Software, Inc. and created Ultimate Rehab Estimator to meet a need he saw every day. Investors need to know what to look for and what the repairs/improvements to a property will cost. Contractors simply cannot go to every property with them and do estimates on each one, knowing only 1 in 50 might be closed upon. The investor is on his/her own. Well, they used to be!
All a buyer has to do is measure – exterior or interior and tell the app what they want to do. Repair, replace, build, paint, whatever. Ultimate Rehab Estimator does all of the math, produces a Statement of Work, Bill of Materials, and has a Deal Analyzer to help the investor decide if they might make a profit.

As the owner of Rehabs 2 Riches, Alton Jones has spent his life making connections. Right out of high school, he joined the Los Angeles Police Department and became a police officer. During that time, he had a lot of interesting experiences and met a variety of fascinating people. Now, 30 years later, he’s still a reserve officer.
In 1996, Alton joined Primerica Financial Services and became a licensed life insurance agent, eventually rising to the position of Regional Vice-President. A few years later, things changed. He saw families and good people experiencing tough times due to a bad economy and a terrible real estate market. If things had been a little different, it could have been Alton and his family in the same situation. He knew he wanted to help somehow, to give back. That’s what motivated him to earn his real estate license and establish West Coast Home Buyers, LLC., purchasing and remodeling homes to make them affordable for local homebuyers.
Working alongside his mentor, the legendary Ron LeGrand, 14 years of real estate experience taught Alton two things. First, rehabbing homes is a way to help others, giving them a chance to buy beautiful and secure homes. Second, by working hard and working smart, rehabbing can be highly profitable. These lessons led him to develop Rehabs 2 Riches, a series of courses and books designed to teach anyone how to seize the financial opportunity for themselves.

Keith Baker began painting houses in high school and worked construction through college, renovating houses in addition to performing rental make readies and rehabbing flips for investors while earning a degree in Philosophy and German. He never took a class in real estate, finance, accounting or business. Everything he’s learned about business, real estate, and lending has been through practical experience: successes and failures.
He started his own construction/general contractor company after college. After closing his contractor business, Keith worked as a Construction Manager at McGuyer Home Builders (Pioneer and Plantation Homes). When the housing market peaked and began to crumble, he jumped head first into a field position with an oilfield service provider: Schlumberger and then parlayed my oilfield knowledge into a career as an energy loss adjuster.
When Keith decided to invest in real estate, he hadn’t yet developed the confidence to speak to sellers, so he bought his first investment property from his parents, just to get things moving. He and his wife then house hacked their way through their starter home, which we slowly flipped for a nice profit. Then Keith decided it was time to become a landlord, which was a painful experience.
Because he travels so much for a day job that he actually enjoys, Keith converted an old 401(k) into a self-directed IRA (with Quest IRA) and began private lending to local real estate investors to keep himself in the real estate investing loop, close to the action, and to expand his network. Through private lending he bought my first rental property from a potential borrower and met his partner, Landon. Together he and Landon formed Asset REI, which focuses on providing owner financing for both buyers and properties that are neglected and overlooked by the conventional “too big to fail banks.” Thus they become the bank!
Stefani Shock’s start in real estate was in New York City in 2003. From the beginning, she wanted to sell condo developments but in a competitive industry, those opportunities were next to impossible.
After eight years of brokering property, she finally got her first on-site sales position at a luxury condo building. Unfortunately that was in 2009 — a time where people weren’t purchasing luxury homes. After selling the building out in record time, she moved onto another luxury development and then moved to the Bahamas to sell condos in a another luxury development/resort community.
Her history in real estate had the ups and downs a roller coaster could envy. She is now a certified performance coach for Realtors and creator of the online course, Broker Flow, where she teaches the same techniques that power-brokers use in order to have a solid and successful business.
With extensive real estate experience, Mike helps buyers and sellers meet their real estate objectives.
