Born in Texas in 1965, Alvin Hope Johnson has never had it easy. Without a formal education, and through overcoming low self-worth, Alvin defied all odds to be the man he is today: the brains behind a 9 figure Multinational Economic Development Organization. Entering the real estate industry was a no-brainer for Alvin. He’s worked in real estate since graduating high school, first as a painter. He was inspired by taking ugly things and making them look new. Through this experience, he was able to learn the ins and outs of the business first hand. With this knowledge, he was able to keep moving forward and up, leading him to where he is today. Alvin fully understands the importance of mindset in tackling challenges that arise when running your own successful business. He knows that if you can’t conceive it or believe it, then you can’t have it or be it. Beyond mindset, he also understands that the logistical realities of starting a business involve capital and resources. For those starting their own businesses, Alvin encourages others to find something they love to do, even for free. Keeping to these principles will lead to success, something Alvin has firsthand experience achieving. To him, success is making others’ dreams come true, which is why his businesses focus on helping others achieve their real estate goals. Success often comes to people who have overcome a lot. Alvin has overcome many obstacles in his life, the largest being low self worth and a suicide attempt. Surviving this and getting to where he is today means Alvin was able to overcome, and he wants to share this feeling with others. With this success came financial freedom, which for Alvin, means having your bills on auto-pay, and never needing to worry about them. Moving forward, Alvin is excited to launch some exciting new projects. First, he is buying a company worth over $150M. Second, he has just launched a new Masterclass of Multi-Family investing, soon to be marketed everywhere. Last. he is working to establish a $150M private equity fund for investors wanting to invest with his companies.
