Entrepreneur Magazine calls Justin Donald the "Warren Buffett of Lifestyle Investing." As the founder of The Lifestyle Investor and a master of low-risk cash flow investing, Justin’s ethos is to "create wealth without creating a job." He excels at simplifying complex financial strategies, structuring deals, and disciplined investment systems that consistently yield profitable results.
After 21 months of investing, and before his 37th birthday, Justin’s investments generated sufficient passive income for him and his wife Jennifer to leave their jobs. Following his straightforward investment system and 10 Commandments of Lifestyle Investing, Justin negotiated deals with over 200 companies, multiplied his net worth to over nine figures, and continues to maintain a family-centric lifestyle.
Justin's extensive entrepreneurial experience includes owning several profitable real estate-related businesses, one of the largest mobile home park portfolios in the U.S., various additional rental property portfolios, Orangetheory Fitness and KidStrong franchises, and multiple successful operating companies. One notable venture is Stellar, a residential maintenance and rehab company that Justin co-founded, that recently completed its Series B funding round, led by Alerion Ventures and S3 Ventures, the largest venture capital firm in Texas.
Justin was recently invited to participate as a SXSW investor judge and speak at Texas Rangers Stadium. He is a member of Tiger 21 and serves on the board of Front Row Foundation International. Through his Lifestyle Investor Mastermind, Justin now consults and coaches entrepreneurs, executives, and successful media personalities on lifestyle investing. He hosts The Lifestyle Investor Podcast, with the aim of helping listeners consistently generate repeatable returns. Justin has also appeared on hundreds of podcasts and shared the stage with prominent figures like Richard Branson, Robert Kiyosaki, Sam Zell, Ron Paul, and Kevin Harrington.
In January 2021, Justin released his #1 Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling book, The Lifestyle Investor: The 10 Commandments of Cash Flow Investing for Passive Income and Financial Freedom. The book is now in the top 1% of all books ever sold, with all proceeds donated to the Tebow Foundation and Love Justice International, two nonprofits that combat human trafficking in over 30 countries.
Justin and Jennifer are dedicated philanthropists who contribute to various causes privately and through their church, with a primary emphasis on fighting human trafficking among other humanitarian efforts. Additionally, they sponsor several children through Compassion International. The Donalds reside in Austin, Texas, and love adventure-based international travel with their cherished daughter.
