#14: Mikey Taylor: How to be Recession Proof and Other Life Lessons

In today’s episode, Jayson is joined by Mikey Taylor. Mikey Taylor is a former professional skateboarder who now spends his time investing in real estate across the United States at Commune Capital. He is also now the city council member of Thousand Oaks in California. His path into real estate started in the skate parks. When he was 16, his parents told him to get a job. He learned how to get sponsors to pay for his travel to skate competitions around the world and he was starting to earn an income. His mother introduced him to someone to help him build a financial plan. After his skating career was coming to a close, he and some friends constructed a successful craft brewery, Saint Archer, which they sold to MillerCoors in 2015. He then invested in some storage units and multifamily properties in what became Commune Capital. His success is built on his skills of courage, resilience, engagement, the ability to spot talent, and the magic of following up.
