If you never break the mold, you’ll never discover the limits you could exceed. Everyone dreams of a brighter future, a bigger legacy, of fulfilling the American Dream and making something of themselves. But not everyone has the ambition to act on those dreams. Brent Franklin transformed his dreams into reality and wants to use his platform to give others the confidence it takes to step out and make a difference.
Brent Franklin, born and raised in Texas, dropped out of school in the 9th grade in favor of getting a job and beginning his life. After serving in the US Navy, he tried his hand at several different industries, experiencing successes and losses, but always leveraging what he learned to propel himself forward. He came across a fix-and-flip opportunity that his friend in real estate didn’t want, but as a general contractor with crews and contacts at his disposal, he decided to take it on himself, earning $92k profit on his first flip.
With significant success in real estate investments, he turned his sights to oil and gas, bringing real estate models with him. Previously, it was a very rigid and closed industry, open only to those who were born into it or had a connection, reducing the competition for major players. The industry had an all-or-nothing approach, putting all their capital into one or two wells, and it either paid out or they lost the whole investment. Brent realized there was a better way to garner backing and increase revenue, already netting more than 9 figures in profit for investors, even in a low market.
Early on, Brent realized that if he wanted to make his goals and vision a reality, he was going to have to work hard rather than wait to get lucky. “I realized that if I needed a hand, I had to look at the end of my wrist and use what I have, and I’ve got two of them.” He was always looking for opportunities as they were gaining momentum and would jump at the chance to be involved wherever possible. As soon as an opportunity was played out or the market became saturated, he would move on to the next big thing.
Brent Franklin is passionate about pushing people to change the way they think about and approach business and generate money. With over 55k followers on IG, he leverages the opportunity to inspire and encourage as many people as possible. He provides educational opportunities for real estate investors through his program The Million Dollar Closer Academy, continues to amass oil and gas wells through Rise Petroleum, and maintains a solid presence in real estate investments with Rapid Close, Inc. Brent Franklin and his associates are creating waves in the oil and gas industry with the acquisition of 111 new wells, plus the largest gusher in the US. They look forward to breaking the monopoly, making involvement lucrative and accessible for more investors.
