Shelomo Solson is the founder of Teenage Impact. When you look or talk to him, he seems motivated and confident. He wasn’t always like this. Below is his condensed story – the story of an underdog. Shelomo was bullied starting in 3rd grade. He dreaded going to school for ten years because of it. He was bullied for his accent, ethnicity, religion, athleticism, weight, height, the clothes he wore, not having a girlfriend, the list can goes on. Sometimes he would come home with bruises crying. He didn’t want to defend himself or tell an adult because he was afraid of being known as a “snitch” or getting beat up harder. He made his parents not say anything. Now, Shelomo runs Teenage Impact, where he helps teenagers overcome their challenges. *Episode highlights:* * How to make money as a youth speaker * How to help teenagers with the unique problems that they face * What to do about bullies. * How to support a loved one dealing with suicide ideation * Encourage young people to dream and set goals * Plan backwards.

Say something unique and be authentic. Put content out there. * Don’t be the best version of someone else. Be the best version of yourself. * Become a good listener. Listen more than you speak. * Is it a good idea to work with family? * You need to be clearly focused on the right priorities and vision in order to move your business forward. * Don’t forget to focus on cashflow and revenue. * You can’t do everything on your own.

After graduating with an engineering degree and then an MBA from Ohio State, Paul entered the management development track at Ford Motor Company in Detroit. After five years, he departed to start a staffing company with a partner. They scaled and sold the company to a publicly traded firm five years later. After a brief “retirement”, Paul began investing in real estate in 2000 to protect and grow his own wealth. He completed over 85 real estate investments and exits, appeared on HGTV’s House Hunters, rehabbed and managed dozens of rental properties, built a number of new homes, and developed a subdivision. Three successful real estate developments, including assisting with the development of a Hyatt hotel and a very successful multifamily project in 2010, convinced him of the power of commercial real estate. Paul is married with 4 children and lives in Central Virginia. *Episode highlights:* * The best way to succeed is to fail and learn from failure. * Commercial vs residential real estate investing. * True wealth = assets that produce income. * Investing vs. speculating. Investing is math. Investing is boring. But investing is predictable. * Everything has a learning curve. Take time to learn. Start small. * Look for experienced mentors and coaches. NOT “gurus” * Wealth doesn’t bring happiness. * Success is finding out why you are on the planet and then doing it. *Follow Paul* * LinkedIn ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/paul-moore-3255924/ ) * Website ( https://www.wellingscapital.com/ ) * Bigger Pockets ( https://www.biggerpockets.com/blog/contributors/paulmoore ) *Follow Jacob:* * Website ( https://www.jacob-harmon.com/ ) * LinkedIn ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/jacobmharmon/ ) * Twitter: @jacob_m_harmon ( https://twitter.com/jacob_m_harmon ) *Follow Kalob:* * LinkedIn ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/kalobvalle/ ) *Follow SuccessQuest:* * Website ( https://www.mysuccessquest.com/ ) * Blog ( https://www.mysuccessquest.com/content/blog ) * Facebook Page ( https://www.facebook.com/mysuccessquest/ ) * Community (Facebook Group) ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/successquesters/ ) * LinkedIn ( https://www.linkedin.com/company/mysuccessquest ) * Twitter: @MySuccessQuest ( https://twitter.com/MySuccessQuest ) * Instagram @MySuccessQuest ( https://www.instagram.com/mysuccessquest/ ) *Support SuccessQuest* We work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.
