Real estate can make you a millionaire.

Mr. McCutchen shares how he has been able to build a healthy portfolio.

He is passionate about helping others live the life they have always wanted by knowing the “why” and “how” of getting one’s business off the ground.

Charles started out in very humble beginnings, growing up in the projects, while his family was on government assistance. He went on to graduate high school before enlisting in the United States Navy. He was able to attend college through Navy program where he received a B.S. Degree in Criminal Justice, then he went on to earn his Master’s in Business Administration in Human Resources.
Charles retired from the military as a Naval Officer, just five months shy of completing 22 years. He has been awarded numerous awards and led people in and out of war. As a Ballistic Missile Defense expert, he was able to help ensure the U.S. was prepared to fight. As he exited the military, a few top firms recruited him and he found a home working as a consultant doing Ballistic Missile Defense for a year and a half before setting out to become a full-time entrepreneur.
What made you go into business?
He started reading about taxes and how business owners received their money first and they would give the IRS what’s left after their expenses. He looked at how they (IRS) were taking a significant amount of money from him when he wasn’t a business owner. He was making 6-figures so he thought he’d arrived only to find out that he still felt broke. He just wanted to have control over the little money he had.
Why are you so passionate about empowering women?
He truly believes women make the world go round. They multiply everything they’re given. Women are nurturing and teach so when they get the right information, they’ll just pass it along. He looks back on how hard his mom worked to provide a stable life for him and his siblings that he has a soft spot for empowering women.
