Built for a Recession: The Path to Stability & Wealth in a Down Market with Josh Cantwell

Between unfathomable rate hikes, yield curve inversions, and what’s happening in the stock market, it’s clear that a severe recession is on the horizon. 

If you’re a smart investor, you’re using this calm before the storm to find the best investing vehicle and putting your financial ducks in a row while you still can. 

We know that real estate is the greatest path to wealth but asset classes aren’t created equal, especially in a recession. 

In today’s episode, I’m joined by the CEO of Freeland Ventures, Josh Cantwell. Josh’s company has 3000 apartment units under his management, and he’s going to lay out the exact path to get through the recession and come out truly wealthy on the other side.


You either have a cash flow/income model or you have a boom/bust model. I’m going to do what I control, and I can’t control the great wide open market and what’s going to grow. – Josh Cantwell
