Co-Living - Rent the Room Not The House
Sam Wegert was homeschooled K-12 with his seven siblings. At 15 years old, with a loan of $15,000 from his parents, he purchased his first martial arts school and graduated high school that same year.
Over the next 15 years he expanded to 6 brick and mortar locations and through COVID built an online program. His company, UpLevel Martial Arts now has over 1,500 students and has trained more than 20,000 students in martial arts in 25 states and 3 provinces in Canada. They generate over $200,000/month in sales.
Throughout his martial arts career, Sam joined an exclusive millionaire mastermind group called GoBundance as the youngest member at the time in 2014 and began to invest in real estate through short term rentals and co-living properties.
He partnered with his wife and now together they own 8 short term rentals, and 115 co-living beds generating over 100,000/month in gross rental income in total.
Sam is now passive in both his real estate investments and his martial arts business at the age of 30 years old. He lives in Charlotte, NC with his wife Rachel who is a HUGE supporter and his business partner.
Sam and his business partner now run a coaching company teaching others to build and scale their real estate through coliving and short term rentals.
Sam and his wife Rachel run the UpLevel Foundation where they provide support and fundraise to provide scholarships for families that can’t afford it to participate in martial arts training.
