147: Asset Classes That Might Do Well Amidst an Economic Downturn with Paul Moore

A downturn is on the horizon, that’s just how it works. You should be concerned but you don’t have to panic. Our guest, Paul Moore, shares with us ideas that could greatly help in riding out this part of the market cycle.

Paul Moore is the Founder and Managing Partner of Wellings Capital. After a brief “retirement” in his early 30s, Paul began investing in real estate in 2000 to protect and grow his own wealth.

He completed over 85 real estate investments and exits, appeared on HGTV’s House Hunters, rehabbed and managed dozens of rental properties, and developed a subdivision. After completing three successful real estate developments, including assisting with the development of a Hyatt hotel and a very successful multifamily project, Paul narrowed his focus on commercial real estate in 2011. 

Paul is the author of The Perfect Investment: Create Enduring Wealth from the Historic Shift to Multifamily Housing and Storing Up Profits: Capitalize on America’s Obsession with Stuff by Investing in Self-Storage. He also co-hosted a wealth-building podcast called How to Lose Money and he’s been a featured guest on 250+ other podcasts including the BiggerPockets Podcast, The Real Estate Guys, and Entrepreneur on Fire.
