The Guided Retirement Show

Jul 20, 2021

Building great companies isn’t simple. There are so many moving parts, unforeseen challenges, and unique issues (and opportunities) you will only face as an entrepreneur.

Today’s guest is Don Wenner. When he was 21 years old, he founded DLP Real Estate Capital. Now, at the age of 36, he has experienced growth of over 60% annually every year he’s been in business. He oversees 12 companies, over 430 team members, and $1.5 billion in assets. 

In this conversation, Don and I talk about the pivotal moments that made him into the businessman he is today, the powerful tools he’s created to make expansion consistent and reliable for over a decade, and how to use them to scale any great business smartly and sustainably for years to come.

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn:

  • How Don caught the entrepreneurial bug.
  • Why Don doubled down on real estate during the Great
  • Recession–and why this strategy ultimately paid off.
  • How Don saw unique opportunities when COVID hit.
  • The crisis and challenges facing housing and commercial real estate right now.
  • How to make sense of the job crisis facing the American workforce.
  • How changes to the tax code can have serious impacts on jobs, innovation, and business growth.
