He has been involved in many industries before discovering real estate investing.

He’s also invested passively in a large apartment complex. Barri knows his work ethic and strong will to succeed will make it the next thing he conquers!Barri now hosts the WWRE Podcast and the youtube channel Wrestling With Real Estate, where he interviews people from all aspects of the industry. His goal is to help educate as many people to the amazing benefits of investing in multi-family real estate.Barri founded and oversees all aspects of PG Multifamily, a real estate investment company that focuses on value add multifamily properties.

This week we welcome Nice Vissay who identifies himself as a fitness expert for the entrepreneurial community. Him and his team are online coaches helping busy people burn 8-10lbs of fat a month without sacrificing your schedule. Their programs provide the education to make sustainable changes that will last your lifetime. In his own words...I am a fitness, nutrition, lifestyle, and health coach in the Health and Wealth Blueprint so my role is to help my clients continually push towards making healthier, sustainable habits. Building custom nutrition and fitness programs is part of the job but keeping my clients accountable and motivated to stay on track is my biggest responsibility. I chose the health and fitness industry because it was an absolute no brainer for me once I saw the light! I genuinely love working with people and I am extremely passionate about helping others. The health and fitness world gives me that chance to help people build better and healthier lifestyles, achieve goals never thought achievable, and increase overall happiness. I am constantly rewarded by seeing my client’s progression and that really motivates me. I have unwavering optimism and I have been told I am a “hype man” so this position is very enjoyable for me. The aspect I want people to get most out of this program is that accountability and prioritization pay off. Making life changes does not happen overnight. It takes persistence, blasting through the daily challenges and relishing the big and small successes we obtain. My favorite phrase to hear from clients are, “I never thought I could.” Even when said lightly, I find it powerful. When that realization hits people and they understand they are getting mentally and physically stronger, when they are more confident in other parts of life, it has an emotional impact on me.My experience consists of 7+ years of personal training. I have worked with clients from coaching Crossfit athletes, increasing athletes skill levels sport specifically, senior citizens, clients wheelchair bound, Parkinson’s patients, Marines, Army, and everybody in between. I specialize in building lean muscle mass and burning fat creating a more athletic looking physique.Certifications I have gotten: AFAA CPT CertificationNFTA CPT CertificationFunctional Nutrition and Metabolism Science Specialization Support the show (

Kam Zainabadi’s interest in real estate started around 2008 when he finished his residency training and started working as a medical doctor. This, as we all know, coincided with the financial crisis which lead to the housing crash. Knowing that this is an opportunity of a lifetime, he started buying distressed single-family properties and renting them. He soon learned about the tremendous power of leverage and how he can use it to secure large amounts of assets with small amounts of money down. As the market recovered, he converted many of the single-family holdings into multi-family units throughout Southern California, via 1031 Exchange. 1031 Exchange was another tax-protected modality that he used to increase his net assets held. His interest in real estate also branched out into angel investing in tech startups. He has invested in over 5 startups. At the same time, through his network of investors, he got introduced to real estate syndications. He invested in several syndicated deals and has continued to look for more opportunities. He also became interested in real estate crowdfunding which combined his interest in technology and real estate. However, having invested in several crowdfunding platforms, he found many shortcomings in the structure of the deals. This prompted him to bring a team together to create Park Place Investment. The mission of PPI is to democratize real estate crowdfunding by removing barriers that traditional syndications have into entering real estate crowdfunding. Support the show (
