Almost every entrepreneur knows that growing a business is no easy feat. It takes dedication and the right know-how to keep a business thriving for years despite stiff competition or unpredictable economies. So when Andrew Sallee entered the world of an entrepreneur, he made sure that he had what it takes to run and grow a business. 

Hailing from Rock Island, Illinois, Andrew had humble beginnings in his entrepreneurial journey. Andrew began by spending 10 years in sales and starting a siding and roofing business before tapping into the rewarding real estate industry. 

In time, he realized his potential and began investing in himself and his business. Partnered with hard work, Andrew grew his portfolio to millions of dollars. 


From the Ground Up 

Andrew doesn’t deny that he came from a background where nothing was given. Instead, he had to earn everything that he has today. 

“Everything I’ve earned has been built from what I’ve been able to earn beginning with my sales career, then my company all through my investments,” he said. 

One of Andrew’s greatest investments is himself. He attended nine to twelve different conferences every year for years, giving him the chance to educate himself on how to combine hard work with smart investments. 

“Never stop investing in yourself. You are your single most important and valuable asset so act like it every day,” he said. 

Some of his recent acquisitions include the Northtown Strip Center, a farmland in Bloomington, Illinois, and a 100 unit multi-family property in Davenport. 


Being Inspired By Great Minds 

Even though Andrew worked towards success by himself, he was encouraged by some great voices who shared their knowledge on how to become a well-rounded entrepreneur. Some of the people who contributed to his success are a great network of mentors and coaches including Tony Robbins, Dean Graziosi, Grant Cardone, Mark Evans, and Tim Bratz. 

He used guidance that he learned from the popular mentors to his benefit to improve his skills as an entrepreneur in the real estate industry. He believes that surrounding himself with people who have the right mindset bears good results, especially for one who knows how to amplify their positivity and turn it into something concrete. 

Now armed with the influences of these personalities, Andrew hopes to aggressively grow his portfolio until it hits $1B in total assets. 

Most importantly, he plans to grow his real estate business further so he can continue to make a positive impact on his community by being an inspiration to others.
