Escaping Abandonment and Criminal Charges to Running $100 Million Multifamily Funds with Entrepreneur Steven Libman
Episode Details

By 12 years old, Steven had experienced 5 divorces in his family and changed parents several times. At 40, he now raises real estate funds north of $100 million as a Managing Partner of Integrity Holdings Group, owns 1000 units, and found God. Throughout his life, he has been battling two conflicting beliefs: that he can do what he does better than anyone else, and the thought that he’ll never be good enough. This is the story of how he bridged the abandonment, instability, and hardship that riddled his childhood to become an entrepreneur with a self-sustaining support system.

“I'm sure if you interview a bunch of entrepreneurs, we could probably tend to agree that you become this overachiever because you feel maybe a little less than - like you have to prove it to somebody.” (20:28)

Getting charged with 7 felonies and later realizing that he was doomed to be a bad employee unfolded the chain of events that led to a life of highly profitable entrepreneurship. Steven has been running Integrity Holdings Group for 12 years. His company raises capital for large multi-family and commercial real estate projects and hands the funds over to reputable operators.

Tune in to dive into his journey from adversity to abundance and discover why he realized flipping real estate wasn’t good for him, how he reduces his tax bill and why he spends 5 figures on masterminds.

“I don't think you could talk about adversity without the benefit that comes out of it and what lessons you learned from it. I think that for me was what planted the seed of entrepreneurship - those formative years experiences, and all of those years thinking that there is this other way of life that I see And then there's this struggle and instability over here, but how do we avoid that? And is that just purely by chance, or is that tactical and intentional? And I get to determine what path I take.” (18:05)

“The lie of the world that they try to get you to believe is that it's more risky to start your own business than it is to go work for somebody else.” (34:04)
