Taylor Welch

CEO/Founder Wealth Cap Holdings
Author The Consultant Next Door

Taylor is a real estate investor & business consultant. His companies have serviced over 50,000 individual small businesses in the last 5 years.

In 2001, Taylor attended his first “business seminar.” He was 12 years old and was, in his own words, “forced to attend” by his father. Taylor didn’t want to be an entrepreneur or start a business early on — his dream? To work at a church, he wanted to be a pastor. “That dream came true,” he says, “and for the first time I experienced what so many people experience later on in life: the thing you always wanted, after you get it, you don’t want it.”

After just 2 years on staff at a church in Memphis, TN he transitioned into real estate and built systems that are still in use today to manage 6,000+ single family, residential income properties. “It was difficult work,” he says, “and I was good at it… but after a few years it was time to move on.” He says his goal was to become a freelance advertiser and make 6-figures a year doing what he loved: advertising. Within 12 months, he had eclipsed 7-figures… a few months after that, 7-figures a month.

 

Today, his companies help thousands of people all over the world develop businesses, lead more fulfilled lives, and multiply net worth through real estate. He and his business partner have built an 8-figure portfolio of businesses and assets that are making life better for everyone they come into contact with. But like he always says, “the best days are ahead, not behind.
