About this Episode

Have you been exploring the question of how to turn your passion into a profession? Transition into the life of your dreams and live the life of your passion with this special episode!

Ali Boone is a real estate investor, entrepreneur, and published conference paper author who once worked in corporate America but now pursues a life of ultimate career freedom. She also launched Hipster Investments, one of the leading providers of turnkey rental properties, facilitating over $18 million in turnkey sales in the first five years of business.

She grew up in Atlanta with a typical outlook on life—go to school, get high grades, and find a stable job. With her degree in aerospace engineering, she was flying airplanes for a living but realized she didn’t love the pilot life. She decided to pivot, and soon after, she carved out a life for herself, free from worry and filled with joy. Now, a decade after her leap to an entrepreneurial journey, she is becoming the person she envisioned herself to be.

If you're thinking of making a shift and pursuing your passions, tune in as we pick Ali's brain to learn about her experience and life lessons after making a professional transition herself.
