After binge listening to the podcast for the past few weeks, I've learned that this is the next step.
I'm Dusty Hulet, and I'm a creative director/producer working in film and advertising. I grew up in Idaho Falls, and today I'm based in Salt Lake City, UT. In the world of real estate, I'm working on deals in Jackson Hole and its nearby satellite communities.
I owned a small business in Jackson for a number of years and experienced firsthand how passive income can allow a person to work on meaningful, impactful projects that can make the world a better place. That small business is no more, but I've learned how real estate investing can function similarly, and how it can actually be more scalable than that business ever was. After a year of research, I hope to dive into the right deal shortly, and begin to build and grow that base.
I also love and miss the Tetons and hope to be working near them once again very soon.
I'm currently finishing up a documentary about bear-human conflict in Durango, Colorado. I've been climbing into bear dens with biologists every winter for the past three years, and I'm finally finishing that film and submitting it to festivals. It's been a long road, but a rewarding one, and as we celebrate the fruits of that labor and try to make it as impactful as possible, I'm simultaneously keeping my pulse on the real estate deals up north.
I guess that's enough for now. Looking forward to meeting more of you!
@Dusty Hulet Welcome to the BP community! Congrats on wrapping up your documentary, I'm sure that is a very fulfilling feeling. If you've listened to all the podcasts then you certainly have learned a lot. The podcasts are an excellent resource to learn from every aspect of REI and learn from others mistakes and successes to help ponder the path you want to take and then have actionable steps to get there. If you ever make it back up to Idaho Falls we can meet up and discuss your plans and what you're looking to do. Jackson Hole is a very expensive market right now. If there's anything you need in and around the surrounding Idaho Falls area, I'm here to help. Best of luck on your journey!
Hey @Don Spafford ! Thanks for the welcome, and the encouragement. That's very cool that you're up in IF. I just helped my folks sell my childhood home up there, and it was really interesting to see how quickly things are moving in that market. Lots of growth in my little hometown! The folks relocated to Island Park, so perhaps on one of my trips through IF we can grab lunch and compare notes.
Welcome. I’m in South Jordan. Feel free to contact me anytime.
Welcome @Dusty Hulet ! Just spent time in Jackson in August - gorgeous. What am experience climbing into bear dens must be!
And welcome to BP! A wealth of knowledge if there ever was one. Congratulations on your film! As a avid outdoorsman, I look forward to seeing it.
I have many a found memory of spending my summers working for an uncle in IF. Great part of the world. And yes, you are correct passive income is a great thing. As I am sure you know plenty of opportunities in the greater SLC area. Best of luck to you!
@Spencer Taylor That's awesome that you're close by! Have you been to any of the meet ups in the greater Salt Lake area? I'm interested in attending, assuming they're happening.
@Jonna Weber Thanks! Jackson is a little slice of heaven, isn't it. But Boise's not bad either! I still need to get over there to run the Payette River.
@Martin Carstens Thanks! And hopefully we'll have that film in a festival near you this coming year. What made you decide to invest in the Salt Lake market when your'e living in Edmonds? With a sister in Seattle, I just went to the San Juan islands for the first time. That ferry ride is a dream.
