E28: Thrive on Adversity: Difficulty Breeds Drive – Neal Bawa



If you’ve always thought that coming from a well-off family sets you up for more success, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Neal Bawa shares with us his journey from a child in a poor family, raised by his twice-widowed mom, to a very successful multi-family syndication career. He attributes much of his success to the drive he gained through adversity, and his ability to maintain a positive mindset.



  1. Adversity breeds drive. Thrive on those challenges!
  2. Happiness is the reason for everything, not money
  3. Set ambitious goals, but be conservative in your moves to get there
  4. There is no such thing as a single “Real Estate Cycle”
