David Phelps

Founder & CEO, Freedom Founders Mastermind

David Phelps began investing in real estate in the early 1980’s, while attending dental school, by joint-venturing with his father on their first rental property.  Three years later, they sold the property and David took his $25,000 capital gain share and leveraged it into thirty-one properties that later produced $15,000 net cash flow. David also owned and managed a dental practice for over twenty years. It was during a period of multiple health crises suffered by his daughter that led David to the decision to become a true business entrepreneur, transforming his dental practice to enable him to spend more time his daughter, whether she was sick or well.  David is a firm believer that time is our most important asset. He counsels: “You can’t buy your life back at some future retirement age – there’s no such thing. It’s an illusion that unfortunately escapes too many hard-working people.”
