Dwan Bent-twyford:

I started teaching other people, I said, listen, I don’t know a lot but what I know everybody can do cuz I was fired from Denny’s so like everybody can do this, right? And I started teaching people when I really didn’t even know enough to teach. I didn’t know enough to know everybody could do it. And then the money really turned around a lot. The money turned around a lot and then I became a millionaire. And then I started buying rentals and I started having assets. And so by the time I was like at the end of my first full decade, I was killing it.

I am excited because just to let you know, I just got off a podcast with her and was recording with her on her podcast so you need to get on her podcast and listen to it. But I got to know her a lot better as well too. This is incredible human being. I really like Dwan. So let’s dive into, she’s one of the most sought after real estate investors out there as well too. I see her posting everywhere. She’s a part of some of the masterminds I’m a part of. But dwan, I wanna get dive in and just start asking you some questions. So thank you for, first of all, thank you for being here today. I really appreciate. I

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Have, I’m super excited.

David Richter:

So I wanted to ask you first, what excites you about real estate investing? Like especially since you have a wide experience, what excites you about the whole concept of real estate investing?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

You know, I honestly, and I know it’s weird cuz I’ve been doing it for 30 years and we do commercial, we do all kinds of crazy stuff. But I still do a lot of single family homes and I still really like to help people in distress. Cause I was, that single mom went to a bankruptcy foreclosure, lost my house, my car, and had a baby and nobody helped me. And there’s still 30 years later I still have just this need to wanna help people become successful and I still wanna help people in distress and I mean I’m excited about all of it but at the core it’s really, truly, it’s about helping people. Yeah, I like some crazy heart for helping people. I don’t know.

David Richter:

Well I love that. I think that’s what we wanna do as businesses, right? I mean you want to solve problems, that’s what you’re doing, right? And you, you sounds like you’ve done it for 30 years now, which is awesome. And

Dwan Bent-twyford:

I started investing before you were

David Richter:

Born. Yes, yes. So I wasn’t gonna go there at all. But you know

Dwan Bent-twyford:

That’s, I was 33, she was eight months old when her dad and I split up and like within a year I was investing. So while you were uh, in your mommy’s tummy, I was doing my first deal.

David Richter:

Awesome. Well I love that, that mental image. So let’s move on to the next question. <laugh>. So deja in the real estate investing journey, cuz, I ask all my guests this, especially over your, you’ve got a lot of experience in the real estate world. Have you struggled like financially at any point in the real estate investing journey or faced any money struggles in the real estate investing side over the last 30 years?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

So yes, to answer the short answer is absolutely positive, but yes, uh, at several different times. But I’m gonna tell you my very first deal, I really did not know what I was doing. Like honestly, this woman and I sort of had like a hug and a handshake and decided to, she moved out, I moved in, I fixed up her house to split the money. Like it was the craziest deal. If a student came to me like that, I’d be like, are you out of your mind?

David Richter:

<laugh>?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

But I made 22,000 bucks. So my first deal and my second made 50, my first two deals were like major home runs. And I was like, holy cow, I’ve never, I mean this is 1990, I’ve never seen this much money. I don’t know anybody with this much of money. Like oh I mean to be rich. Like that was my first thing, right? Yep. And of course I did not know anything about investing it, saving it, doing anything with it. So I would find myself getting a deal, I don’t know, buying stuff or whatever and being broke again. And then getting a deal and then being broke. And I was on this cycle for a, a long time off and on for like a decade, just rollercoaster. And I would have then I’d buy a couple rentals and I’d like being a landlord and I’d sell them. I was just like all over the map for like an entire decade. Cause I didn’t have anywhere to teach me or guide me. And there weren’t really, um, like the seminars and the trainers, like that stuff wasn’t there yet. That stuff really like pre-internet, that stuff wasn’t really there. So for like a decade, that was a hot mess.

David Richter:

Okay, so then the hot mess, let’s dive into that a little bit. <laugh>. So like was that you would make 20, 50,000 and then be like back to zero square zero Like what

Dwan Bent-twyford:

I would buy, like I bought a boat, I’d buy a car, I’d travel, I’d take some months off. Um, and then I’d be, oh man, I’m running outta money. I’d do some more deals And, and I don’t know, it was just, it was just sort of, I didn’t have the sense, I think at that age I still saw myself as being 10 foot tall and bulletproof and I would never actually be an old person. And I, cause you know, when I was like in my twenties, my grandparents looked like those 2000-year-old people. That’s what my grandparents looked like that. So I never, I still, I think never thought I was ever gonna be older and need to like worry, you know? Cause I was like, oh, they’re so old, they’re dead. Like I’ll be dead. You know? <laugh>. Yeah. Once you get 30, then 40 doesn’t look so bad.

Once you get 40 it’s like, ok, 50 doesn’t look bad once you’re my age. I’m like, you know what, 80 doesn’t really look that bad anymore. <laugh>. So yeah, so I probably spent, I probably spent a good seven or eight years, uh, doing deals, taking off, traveling, doing deals. It’s kind of a little bit sort of all over the map. And then somewhere along the way I was like, you know what? I need to settle down. My daughter might wanna go to college. I’m gonna need money. I need to buy rentals. I need to have, you know, passive income. And, and I started getting a little bit more serious about it. But even then I didn’t really know anything about being a landlord. My whole first batch of rentals. I ended up selling them cause I couldn’t stand being a landlord. And then I went to a workshop taught by Nick Sidoti who teaches you how to be a landlord. And after I went to that I was like okay, so all the things on the do not do list, I’ve done them all. That’s why I hate it cuz my tenants call me like I’m their best friend. And once I realized get someone in there, put some distance, this and that, I was able to like restart the landlording which has turned into commercial buildings, which has turned into businesses. Which has turned into like all kinds of crazy things.

David Richter:

Okay.

Dwan Bent-twyford:

I had no guidance, I had, that’s the bottom line. I had no guidance.

David Richter:

Well would you have done anything differently back then with guidance or like would you have started, you know, buying rentals sooner or like would you have done anything different at that point during the

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Seminary? Somebody like that. Like how would you guys do if I had someone like you that’s like hey listen this is what you need to do to be successful. Yeah and these are the steps. I feel like I would have listened to stuff cause I was reading all the books I was reading Taking For Rich, I was going all the Tony Robbins seminar. I was reading all the books, I was reading all the stuff. But I was somehow not reading books that were taught me like about financial what to do. Yeah. With all the money. Yeah. I mean there was a couple times I would have like $500 in the bank. Like I don’t know what to do with, I’m just let sit there. I have so much I could have done with that was just to sit there and then I’d like buy a rental or buy something and then I’d be like, oh I’m gonna take off for a few months. And I was like, okay, I need to go to work again.

David Richter:

<laugh>. Right. Okay. I

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Think I would have listened but it just really was nobody around in South Florida yet. It just, there weren’t real estate group. Even r groups were not there yet.

David Richter:

Okay. That makes

Dwan Bent-twyford:

By like R

David Richter:

Group. Right. That makes a lot of sense. So then for you in your situation there, it sounds like were you living deal to deal? It sounds like you had money at some point. Sometimes it was like spending that, but like did you ever feel in your real estate investing journey that you were ever at that point like, I have to have that next deal? Did you ever get to that point during those years?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Um, no, but I’m gonna tell you something uh, cuz I can share this with you cuz you’re a Christian so you’ll get it. So somewhere in like the first several years of my business, you know, I was gonna church really regular and God really put it on my heart that I needed to tithe. Yeah. Now I’m making but like regularly tithe first. Like, so I would, when I would get a deal and I was gonna pay whatever bills, I would write the tithe check first and then whatever mortgage, like whatever the tide check was the first check due. And I had been making uh, several hundred thousand dollars a year. Like I was doing pretty good. And the first year I was like, Nope, that’s it. I’m committed to this. I started a journal, I’m doing everything. And that next year, I swear to you, I didn’t hardly close any deals.

I got so tight on my money and it was a couple times I was like, oh man, I can’t even afford a tithe right now. I really need to pay bills. Yeah. And then I was like, no. So devil’s testing me. Yeah. I have to tithe no matter what. And there was one point I tied like the last dollar that I had instead of buying food. Wow. I was like, well you gotta make this deal that’s set to close. This deal’s gotta close like by Friday or I’m gonna be like out. But I, so I had a, a journey there for a while where when I really set out to no matter what, under no condition am I gonna say I’ll do this later, I’m gonna tie first I had like a whole year of all kinds of crazy struggles. And it was to push me to see if I would stick to my guns, which I did.

And then like the next year I made like 10 times the money. Wow. And that’s when I started. Okay. God says if you’re good with a little, he’ll give you a lot. Yeah. And I actually, my church at that time I had joined uh, Calvary Chapel, which is like a mega church. Yeah. They had financial education, like financial classes. Yeah. I started going to all the financial classes and learning about money like years in. So my first heart is, my first heart is like, oh wow. The money’s gone was when I committed to tithing and I stucked my guns all the way down. I was like, oh. And it, you know, and God was testing me for sure. And then I started going to the classes, I started learning more. And then at that point, I actually opened up a reality group. I started teaching other people.

I said, listen, I don’t know a lot but what I know everybody can do cuz I was fired from Denny’s so like everybody can do this. Right. And I started teaching people when I really didn’t even know enough to teach. I didn’t know enough to know everybody could do it. And then the money really turned around a lot. The money turned around a lot. And then, um, I became a millionaire and then I started buying rentals and I started having assets. And so by the time I was like at the end of my first full decade, I was telling it.

David Richter:

Yeah. Well that’s, that’s a great, a great turnaround story. I wanna ask one thing that I caught on there. You went to church and they helped you with the finances. I’m, I’m guessing those were personal finance classes, correct?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Yes.

David Richter:

So would you say those personal finance classes helped you on the business side  in man in managing the money?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Yes. They had these, uh, eight-week classes. So this is like, it’s a big charge. There’s like 25,000 people. So when they have some kind of a class, there’s like hundreds of people. And I went, I took, um, I can’t, and I can’t remember what they called the classes at this moment, but they were eight weeks and it was once a week for eight weeks. And then if you wanted to go like a little more advanced, it was like eight more weeks. Like a little bit more advanced financing. Yeah. And it was more things like put money in the bank, um, have insurance, have 401ks plan for your retirement. Yep. Uh, like budgeting, have a budget and this is what your budget is. It wasn’t like, hey, you’re a real estate investor, take all your money and go buy something with it. Right. It was like personal finance, but I had never had any training on that either. Yeah. I think that’s one of the things kids miss in school today is there’s no training on like how to balance a checkbook and then you get onto the world and you don’t know what to

David Richter:

Do. Well I was just gonna ask, how important do you think it is to have someone like that in your life to just give you that direction and guidance around money? Like what, what impact did it make on your business

Dwan Bent-twyford:

You so much? Because when I was raised, I was raised in uh, Ohio, like in the country in Ohio, Dayton, Ohio. And my dad came from Tennessee. Like my parents grew up with electricity, they had outhouses. Like they grew up like, you know, like kind of like a holler, what you would call it, A holler. And some people are like, what is that? I’m, I just have to go one <laugh>. But so when they came to Ohio and my dad has like this factory job and I was sort of raised like grow up, get a factory job, work for the man, they’ll put your money away, you’ll have retirement, you’re retired and your finances will be set. So no one ever took the time to like teach me how to work with credit cards and balance a checkbook. They’ll just like, get a factory job, do this and da da da and you’ll be fine when you’re 60.

And so when I started making money, I had no idea what to do with it. So the finance classes helped me a lot because I started to really understand like the value of money and the power of money. And as it ended up turning out at that church I went to, they had like 50 people that were the top um, Tylers of that church. And they called a meeting one night, said, Hey, we’re having this meeting, we wanna invite each other this meeting. And we go there. It’s like a church like, you know, 3000 sanctuary. It’s like 50 people sitting up front and they go, you are the top ti to this entire church. You help run this entire thing. And I was looking around like seriously? Like my god, my money’s making such a difference in the

David Richter:

Church. Wow, that’s awesome.

Dwan Bent-twyford:

So excited. Like thank you Jesus.

David Richter:

Right. That is incredible. That’s, that’s something where you took something that someone gave you and you used it for something that actually turned into what I believe will impact eternity. So I mean I absolutely love that. So I want to, let’s shift the focus just a little bit from where you were then. You have children, we’ve already established that I, you know, at the beginning here of what their ages are and whatnot and comparing that to me. But let’s go on to what did you, as you were going on this journey, what did you want to make sure that you were teaching them? And I’d also like to tag on what do you want to tell like the future generation now? Like what do you wanna make sure that they get as well too? So your own children and then maybe the

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Generation I had, I was married and I had Ayla when she was eight months old. Her dad and I split up. So I was a single mom until I was 13. So it was just me and Ayla. I raised her by myself. He was a hundred percent gone. I had the picture, no child support, no nothing gone. Yeah. I did not marry bill until ALA was 13. And then Bill had two kids. So I have like, these are my bonus kids. Yeah. But one was younger than ALA and one was older. So we both had custody. So all of a sudden now we have three teenagers. So I’m married and I have a husband and I have three teenagers. All of a sudden it’s like wow, this is like a lot from like single mom and just, there’s all of us. So just so always with my daughter, I always had her coming with me to look at houses when she was really little. I rehab and I, so basically when her dad left, that was my, what I call my come to Jesus moment. Yeah. So I’m 30, I have a baby. It’s like okay, I can get a job, which is what everybody told me to do and get insurance and get benefits and raise her. But when she’s 18 I was like, wow, I’ll be like 50. I’ll be so old. <laugh>.

Which is not, but that’s what I thought. And I thought, or I could work for myself and if I’m never gonna do it, it needs to be right now cuz I have nothing happening right now. So I took the leap and I thought if I tried this real estate and if I fail I can still get a job. But if I get a job, I knew enough to know that especially with my family, they would pressure me into keeping this stability and doing that. And I didn’t wanna be 50 and I just worked some job that nothing to me and I like wasted my life. Right. And not anyone that works that job, you’re not wasting your life. It’s just for me personally, I, I got fired from a lot of jobs cuz I’m too outspoken. So when I had ala I always had her with me.

I had her in the rehab, I took her to all the closings. She started going to the rehab meetings with me. I had her all her life just being around real estate. And then when I met Bill, he was doing the same thing. He was an investor as well and he had done like 800 deals when I met him. So we had all three kids. We had them working with us in the business calling homeowners. Mm-hmm <affirmative>, uh, making appointments, going with us to work with people, sign contracts, working on our rehabs. We had them involved in the business and we said, listen, no matter what you do, you work for yourself because there’s no freedom outside of working for yourself. So we just raised them up like this is, you’re all gonna be entrepreneurs and nobody’s gonna work a job for a hundred years and retire. Cause there’s no jobs like that. It just like doesn’t exist anymore. Yeah. And so all of my kids are involved in real estate. They all own buildings all around. And I gotta tell you something, we did not give them $1. We’re like, if you need to borrow money, you have to call somebody else’s mom and dad got no money for you. You can do it just like we did it and you gonna figure it out. So awesome. They were raised up in it and they all love it and they all do really well.

David Richter:

That’s awesome. That’s just, I love that. And being able to pass that on to them and like show them, you showed them, you didn’t just tell them, you showed them what to do. Yep. So what would you say you would wanna pass out to this generation? Like, like there’s a lot of people because when we were on your podcast, you called out millennials and me, me being one here, I wanted to say like, okay. Like, okay, what other things would you like to pass on to them when it comes to how they think about money or how you would wanna pass on?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

I just, you know, there’s like kinda like two uh, groups of millennials. There’s the millennials like you and like my kids where they were raised with parents and values and they take personal responsibility and they make a mistake. They own up to it and they fix and improve themselves. And there’s just a group over here that’s like, oh my god, I need a safe space. It’s like falling outside and it’s just like, I just, I <laugh>, I’m so sorry. I just don’t know how that group is ever gonna make it right in the world. Yeah. I mean like, I just don’t know. So I feel like if you’re a young person like you, I feel like if you would take the risk to work for yourself, I don’t think you’ll ever regret because we, when we work, we sell our time for money.

David Richter:

Yeah.

Dwan Bent-twyford:

So do you, are you only wanna make $20 an hour? Are you, do you wanna sell your time to somebody else and work at a company for 20 bucks an hour? Is that what your time is worth? Or you wanna work for yourself and maybe you make $10,000 an hour? So time is the most valuable asset we have as everyone gets older. You, the older you get, you know, you’re not 10 foot tall bulletproof anymore. When you’re 60 you’re like, damn, I’m 60 <laugh>. So in the big picture of life, you will sell your time for money. So do you wanna do it for yourself and your family and your generational wealth? Like the Bible says it’s a blessing to lead money to your grandchildren or do you wanna sell your time for somebody else? And if, when you put the value of time as your most valuable asset, I think people will look at money different if they’ll realize time is the most valuable thing.

David Richter:

Yeah. That’s why you need to be following her on her social and like all of her stuff, she teaches a lot of people as well too of how to get out of that mentality. And she’s one of the people that can help you if you’re listening to this as well too. So this is someone who’s been in real estate, has rode that, you know, rode that horse and is now making sure that other people are able to get up on there and ride their horse well too. And I absolutely love that. Love it when people do it and then teach others. And you gotta get around successful people. Yes. Which brings me

Dwan Bent-twyford:

To, and then I work with you and you help them manage their CFO thing. Honestly, it’s like the perfect marriage because people don’t think that they can afford a CFO. So they don’t do it because they don’t know it exists. And if they start out investing or doing whatever working for themselves and they know they can do some fractional it, it would just take people so such a good path if they will accept mentorship. Yes. Not everybody’s coachable.

David Richter:

That is very true.

Dwan Bent-twyford:

If you’ll accept mentorship, you’ll go so much further in your life.

David Richter:

Yep. To just have to be open to that and what they, you know, like what people that have been where you want to be listening to what they say and just putting it in practice. It’s simple and it’s not always easy. But

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Even just like your parents, like your parents basically mentored you on how to be a good adult.

David Richter:

Yeah. Yeah, that’s very true. When on our podcast together, I told her my backstory, which I don’t even know if a lot of you know the backstory there, but I have great parents who modeled great, you know, great path for living and I have to give them a lot of the credit. So yeah, I would a hundred percent agree with that, with uh, that statement for sure. Just have a couple last questions here. We’re talking about your success. What’s one habit that you’ve cultivated over your life that you would say, this has helped me be successful as either a mom, a business owner, real estate investor? What’s a habit that you’ve created that is, you

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Know, honestly reading the Bible and praying about things before I do it. Awesome. Instead of like, what, oh my God, that’s a great idea. I’m like, that sounds like a great idea. I’m just pray on it and then I’ll get back. And when I stopped jumping on everything and just taking a minute, uh, I made a lot better choices and decisions and wealth came with that for me.

David Richter:

Oh man, that is such good insight right there. Because how many times have we lashed out or just made a rash decision just because that was the knee jerk? Like, ah, what the heck? You know, like, and then it’s just all over. It’s like, what is going on here? Take that extra time, take that extra time to think, man, that’s one thing to pass on is just critical thinking. Like take that extra minute. Something I still have to continue working on as well too. It’s like,

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Oh, I still do it too, trust me. Am I, I’m still like, let me bra on it for a minute and I’ll loop back because I’ve learned to listen to the Holy Spirit and I know when God’s saying yes, when he is saying no. Yeah. I’m just like, right. No

David Richter:

<laugh>. I’m

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Like, yes, I can do this.

David Richter:

Awesome. Then let’s, one more question before the final one. If you had one piece of re advice for real estate investors, so the real estate investors listening to this, what would be some partying advice that you would give them before we end the show?

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Uh, I would say if you are a new or real estate investor, I think that you need to be realistic about money. And it doesn’t go on trees and it’s not, you don’t make checks and checks while you’re sleeping. I think you have to realize that you actually have to work to build a successful business. And real estate can be extremely profitable and extremely successful. But you have to, you have to take the steps and you have to do the work. There’s not a shortcut. There’s no shortcut,

David Richter:

No shortcut.

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Joy is, I don’t know what it is after 30 years. So

David Richter:

There you go. She’s done quite a few deals. She’s been doing this and teaching other people. So I think that’s just a good one because everyone’s looking for the magic pill and guess what, that magic pill is a placebo. Yeah. It is not there. So that’s, uh, everyone,

Dwan Bent-twyford:

Everyone wants to shine the next shiny object, just like stop with the webinars and the shiny objects. There’s no shiny objects.

David Richter:

Yep. Man, that’s, that’s really good. So I’m just gonna do a quick recap here because this has been some great stuff. You know, like you’ve been doing this for 30 years, helping other people. The first deal didn’t know what to do, but it was still your first two deals were home runs, which was awesome. But then it sounds like the first seven to eight years it was like spending every dollar that came in. So then we got to go from your journey from that until you got some of the help, which I love that it came from church and it’s like your personal habits change the business habits as well too. So I loved how that tied in together. And then I did, I love to take the worth the risk on working on yourself that can, I don’t care what age you are, if you’re a millennial, younger, older, it’s like that is good advice for anyone. And then her advice at the end that make sure to put in the work, especially if you’re newer in real estate, she can help you as well too. Which brings me to my last question. Like, that’s a ton of gold on this episode. How can our listeners provide value back to you? What are you working on? What do you want them to get involved in? What website to reach you? All that good stuff.

Dwan Bent-twyford:

People that wanna get started in real estate investing can actually take my advice and listen to it, uh, and let me coach them and mentor them and help them. Because my goal really is to help people become that wanna be real estate investors, become successful as quickly as possible and not have like a 10 year learning curve. Right. I really long learning curve didn’t have anyone to help. So if you have someone like you, David, or like me that can help you cut your learning curve, you need to do that and just trust the process.
