James E. Gosa was born in Birmingham, Alabama and grew up in a typical working class family in Southern California. After watching how hard his parents worked, still barely making ends meet, Gosa became determined to find the key to financial success.
He began his career in finance working as a life insurance agent for five years. He realized then that many consumers were in need of relief from their financial woes now, not simply after death. That realization stirred in James a desire to focus on investing in the stock market and financial planning.
Gosa became a stockbroker for a corporate giant and learned the ins-and-outs of investing monies in other companies and the risks associated with their successes and failures. His employer recognized Gosa’s innate talent and trained him to become a financial planner. James learned much about asset protection, investment and securities investing, and estate planning, but he also learned that these services were almost exclusively utilized by upper class and upper middle class consumers; Middle class and lower class consumers were too busy living paycheck to paycheck to consider financial planning, and accumulation of wealth through any such means seemed to feel too far out of reach for them.
An important realization James had during those years was that many wealthy consumers who had cash flow and security owned real estate, including properties purchased as investments in addition to their own homes. Many of these clients were also self-employed: able to focus on building their own dreams and wealth instead of the dreams and wealth of their employers. Gosa made a decision to learn more about entrepreneurship and real estate investing.
For more than twenty years, Gosa has been building, developing, and investing in real estate. During this time, he has made millions, not only for himself, but for others as well, building and investing, and teaching consumers of all backgrounds how to achieve financial success through real estate investing. James has taken his experiences and developed a winning formula that can make anyone, from any socioeconomic status, a success. James E. Gosa has amassed a portfolio of new developments and investment properties across the southern United States. His insight into the economy and innate ability to predict the real estate market only contributes to his success, making him a frequently called upon columnist and speaker. Gosa is the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, including the Million Dollar Roundtable Award, National Quality Award, Who’s Who in Real Estate, and Who’s Who in Young Entrepreneurs. He is the founder of the National Wealth Building Center, J&J Real Estate Development, The J.G. Group LLC, Private Investment Equity Group LLC, Soñador REi LLC, and Rehab Jackson. He is the author of No Money Down, a real estate investment text. Gosa spends his leisure time looking for more investment opportunities, reading, playing tennis, traveling and photography. He resides in Ridgeland, Mississippi.
