Could you hold down two full-time fast-food jobs while building a real estate empire? High school dropout James Hatton did just that. For years Hatton saved his earnings and wisely invested them in rental properties. James was on the brink of his greatest real estate success-tearing down crack houses to rebuild affordable family dwellings in his hometown of Columbia, Tennessee-disaster struck. The financial crisis of 2007-8 caused his bank to call his loans, and James eventually lost all of his properties. Undaunted by the setback, James reinvented his life by becoming a sandwich shop franchise owner.
Spending all but his last few dollars on the shop's renovation, James could not afford the shop's first food delivery. As a final act of desperation, James borrowed $500 to place a bet on a sporting event. The bet paid off, and James was able to open the store. That single wager cost Hatton a portion of his soul and over the next few years, he danced with gambling addiction. Can you imagine winning a year's wages on one bet only to lose everything over a few weeks? That was James Hatton's reality.
Through the assistance of those closest to him and his strong faith in God, James overcame his addiction. Currently, James is setting his sights on reclaiming his initial dreams of becoming a real estate tycoon. James' story is an inspirational tale of personal and professional redemption. With a message of no matter how many times life knocks you down, you can get back up again, the ever-evolving story of James Hatton is sure to motivate you to achieve your dreams.
