HGTV star real estate investor Tarek El Moussa—known to millions of people worldwide who continue to devour episodes of Flip or Flop, Flipping 101 with Tarek El Moussa and The Flipping El Moussas —reveals how the grounding principles that make him such a successful house flipper are also applicable to improving our personal lives.

Tarek El Moussa is everywhere, with 1.3 million engaged social media followers and numerous hit HGTV shows including Flipping 101 w/ Tarek El Moussa as well as the new HGTV docu-series The Flipping El Moussas, where he combines his passions for real estate and family in every project. With over a decade of experience, flipping close to 1,000 properties, selling over 1,000 houses, owning multiple apartment buildings and self-storage facilities, El Moussa is a successful entrepreneur, real estate expert and investor. He has a personal rental portfolio of over 200 properties, a wholesale real estate company, a fix and flip real estate company called Tarek Buys Houses, a private equity investment firm called TEM Capital, a production company called Homemade Productions, a real estate education company called Homeschooled by Tarek, and a solar company called Solar Vision.
It will surprise Tarek’s fans to learn that it wasn't an easy road to the top.  After seeing a promising baseball career end before it even began with a devastating shoulder injury, a young and aimless Tarek had no clue what he wanted to do with his life. So, he drank. Finally, one night, Tarek decided not to drink, and instead stepped outside to look at the night sky for the first time since he could remember. That was when he decided his life needed to change—a lot. And fast.  

In Flip Your Life, Tarek uses his story—that of a lost young man trying to find his way in the world— to take us through the steps of how we can achieve our own goals. Whether in real estate or life, Tarek reveals his proven four-step process:
  1.   Evaluate
  2.   Emulate
  3.   Renovate
  4.   Duplicate
In chapters such as “Enlist Your Crew” and “Renovate Relentlessly,” Tarek walks us through how to identify our goals, find the people to help us accomplish them, and then make those first steps with confidence.  Along the way, he immerses us in personal and intimate moments that reveal the man behind the beloved HGTV persona, and sheds light for the first time on pivotal moments in his life. From the very early days of  his real estate career, including tremendous financial highs followed by devastating lows, filming Flip or Flop with his ex-wife Christina, to his earth-shattering bouts with thyroid and testicular cancer, a crippling back injury, his subsequent addiction to steroids, and his long and hard-earned path to recovery. A natural coach and teacher, Tarek offers us a candid look behind the camera, making Flip Your Life a practical,  easy-to-use guide to help readers everywhere learn how to turn their lives from desultory, unhappy "flops" into focused, meaningful, hugely fulfilling success stories.
