Meet the Founders
I’M MICHAEL BLANK.
I’M A FULL-TIME ENTREPRENEUR, INVESTOR AND COACH AND I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING OTHERS BECOME FINANCIALLY FREE IN 3-5 YEARS BY INVESTING IN APARTMENT BUILDING DEALS WITH A SPECIAL FOCUS ON RAISING MONEY.
Through my company Nighthawk Equity, I control over $65 million in performing multifamily assets all over the United States. In addition to investing nationwide, I teach others how to do their first apartment building deal through tons of free content on TheMichaelBlank.com as well as additional training programs. I’ve helped students acquire over 750 units valued in excess of $27M and we’re on track to do a 1,000 units in the next 12 months through our unique coaching and “Deal Desk” program.
I’m the host of the popular podcast “Apartment Building Investing with Michael Blank” and I write regularly for the Bigger Pockets and Flipnerd’s REI Classroom. I live in Northern VA with my wife and 4 children. I enjoy in equal measure teaching. I have taught computer science courses, financial literacy classes to adults and children, and courses on how to buy apartment buildings.
BECAUSE OF MY EXPERIENCES AS AN ENTREPRENEUR IN DIFFERENT BUSINESSES, I FEEL I CAN HELP OTHERS GAIN THE KNOWLEDGE AND CONFIDENCE TO TAKE THE FIRST STEPS AS AN ENTREPRENEUR, OR TO BECOME BETTER AT WHAT YOU’RE ALREADY DOING AS AN ENTREPRENEUR.
I’m Patricia Sweeney. Learner. Do-er. Coffee drinker. Mom of three. Marketer. Life changer. Results maker.
My path begins at an offline, brick and mortar construction company I owned for more than a decade. When the economy started to decline, we had to get lean with the business and adapt to the times to stay afloat. Which is where I began discovering the fantastic world of online marketing.
It was beyond obvious that the old way of doing business was changing and if I didn’t adapt mine and my family’s financial future was barreling towards uncertainty.
So, I changed. I adapted. I learned the ins and out, tips and tricks of online marketing. I moved to Austin, Texas where I developed relationships with some of the best network marketers in the business. I learned. I applied the online marketing knowledge to my business knowledge and within a year I had built a six figure business from home.
No longer being tied to a brick and mortar business not only gives me financial freedom, but freedom of time and space. I can travel, be more involved in my three children’s lives and see unlimited choices and income ahead of me.
Now that I have freedom in finances and time, I spend it helping other people find online business success. I possess an uncanny ability to see the holes in people’s businesses and stuff them full of cash by locating opportunity.
