Offshoot is a passion project that stems, quite naturally, from Kevin’s years of experience at Fident Capital. One of the best aspects of the gig is interacting with brilliant people on both the operator/borrower and investor/lender sides of transactions. He loves the diversity of their viewpoints and experiencing the horsepower that’s behind their performance. The podcast’s aim is to give these experts a venue to share their knowledge and experience, build relationships and foster connections, and to support real estate entrepreneurs. We talk shop on real estate and finance, and we talk personal performance, delving into daily routines, habits, and beliefs that underpin these individuals. We hope you enjoy the conversations.
