EP 51: From Broke Family to Black Millionaire, Willie Mandrell Real Estate Investor

On this episode of The Millionaire Choice, Tony talks with Willie James Mandrell of The Mandrell Company. While most people don’t know the numbers, there is a huge wealth disparity between black Americans in comparison to white Americans and Asian Americans. Tony came face to face with this statistic in 2017, and it’s been a passion of his to address and highlight it whenever possible. Only by facing the society and the world’s challenges can we hope to overcome them. Willie’s generational family story shows that anyone can become a millionaire, no matter their background. Inspired by his grandmother who became a millionaire with only a sixth grade education, but growing up with a father and family who lived in poverty, Willie chose to follow in his grandmother’s footsteps.
