Against the advice of his parents, Todd started branching out from his Quizno’s franchise. He bought his first property at an auction and thought he might lose his shirt. That first property ended up being extremely profitable, but he still was not all in on real estate. Once he decided to really focus his efforts on real estate investing, he blew up, even after a bankruptcy.
