Most people believe that in order to be successful, you must come from a wealthy family or have special edge producing connections. Annetta Powell puts those beliefs to bed. She has shown that determination, a relentless “get it done” attitude, and hardwork is all that is needed to start, run, and grow a successful business.
Annetta started working as a Materials Coordinator for Johnson Controls when she was 19 years old, and at the age of 24, she was already tired of living paycheck to paycheck. She initially set her signs on becoming the director at her company, but she would soon realize that she could never create the life she truly wanted working for someone else. She knew that her ambitious goals would require a different approach.
Annetta noticed that the people who were living the type of life she desired had multiple streams of income, they didn’t just rely on one. A common income theme amongst those individuals, was real estate income. With this knowledge, she knew what her first move would be. Annetta purchased her first real estate property for $18,000 and after making the necessary renovations, she was able to sell the property for a $24,000 dollar profit. This first win would ignite the fire that would lead to hundreds of similar transactions in the coming years.
This success led to the formation of Annetta’s first company, Infinity Properties Group. To-date, she has done more than $50 million in real estate transactions, as well as provided hundreds of people with real estate investing services such as; renting properties to tenants, executing land contracts, and helping first-time home buyers purchase their first homes.
Like most success stories, Annetta’s road to success was not without its share of hurdles and setbacks. However, true to her nature, Annetta was able to get up and persevere in the face of uncertainty. “I’ve faced more than my fair share of challenges, but I’ve come to realize that real strength, real drive, and real determination is not seen in our successes but rather in our failures and how we respond to them,” – Annetta
In addition to Infinity Properties Group, Annetta also owns five tax franchises known as the Tax Experts and a luxury party bus company, and she recently founded an initiative designed to help other entrepreneurs like herself realize their dreams called The Wealth Connect. Annetta has faced considerable obstacles in her life, ranging from serving two years in prison to a brutal sexual assault. Now, she has dedicated her life to helping others overcome their own obstacles and build real wealth for themselves and their families.
The Wealth Connect was founded to teach others how to master entrepreneurship, how to create strong brands, and how to build long-lasting wealth by creating multiple income streams. The organization also works with entrepreneurs to help them overcome obstacles through personal development. “True success starts and ends with yourself” – Annetta
Having witnessed the struggles and obstacles encountered by her deaf parents, Annetta founded the Abram Powell Foundation, a non-profit created to provide help and resources to the hearing impaired in her community.
Do you have dreams and a burning desire to achieve more and live a more than just average life? The Wealth Connect can help you find and put together the missing pieces of the puzzle. Whatever your goals may be, all you need is the right guidance and the correct level of action and literally anything is possible.
“As long as you believe in yourself and you’re willing to put in hard work, everything is possible,” – Annetta
