Reed emphasizes the importance of having a mindset that is not only focused on profitability, but on sustainability. He also discusses the need to have at least 500 units in one area before you can turn a profit, and how this is an economy-as-a-scale thing. Reed Goossens shares his story of success and how he has always been able to bounce back from failed ventures. He talks about the importance of betting on yourself and how it's important to have multiple income streams in order to recession-proof your business. Tune in to learn valuable lessons for anyone who is looking to take their business to the next level.

"So one thing that I think you're recognized for is the ability and the track record of having built some ecosystems to not only recession-proof the business, but to really streamline operations, and surround yourself with an A team." - Reed Goossens

"It just makes more sense to go out and hire your own staff members and run your own properties. It may not be a profit center, but it is an expense control center, which is very important as we come into very low interest, low cap rate environments where margins become a lot thinner." - Reed Goossens
