EP 153: Lenny The Boss - It All Starts with Mindset

Leonard Nesmith - affectionately known as "Lenny The Boss" born in North Philadelphia,- carved his path to success with unwavering focus and determination. Refusing to succumb to the pitfalls that plagued many of his peers, Leonard set ambitious goals and went on to earn his bachelor's degree.

For over two decades, Leonard's leadership as Vice President of Operations at a prominent company saw him managing a team of 180 people and handling more than $1 billion in accounts receivable, generating over $300 million in annual revenue. Yet, at the heart of his achievements, Leonard holds family as his most cherished treasure. As one of ten siblings, a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend, Leonard's steadfast devotion to family serves as his guiding principle.

A beacon of positivity, Leonard credits his unwavering faith in God for his generous spirit and refusal to indulge in negativity. With an insatiable hunger for knowledge, he diligently built a real estate portfolio while maintaining his 9-5 job, immersing himself in books and courses on real estate. Leonard's diverse portfolio includes long-term and short-term rentals, and he aspires to expand into rehabbing hotels and the multi-family market.

Leonard's passion extends beyond real estate, as he wholeheartedly embraces his mission to uplift others, guiding them to realize their fullest potential and attain genuine success. A masterful educator, Leonard has taught a plethora of courses on topics such as Coaching and Mentorship for Real Estate, Dreams vs. Goals, Goal Setting and Achievement, Time Management, Personal Development, Financial Literacy, Assets vs. Liabilities, and Real-Estate Investment training.

As a Real Estate Investor and Developer, Motivational Speaker, Podcast Co-host of Find Your Freedom, and Personal Development Coach and Mentor, Leonard Nesmith's remarkable journey is a testament to the transformative power of resilience, faith, and relentless pursuit of one's dreams. Through his weekly calls, Leonard continues to empower individuals to embark on their unique Journey to Success.
