About Us

So, you want to know our story huh?

You want to know who the heck Private Money Blueprint is…. and why you should (or shouldn’t) listen to us. Well, here’s the shorter version…

Who We Are

We’re a small crew of fun loving entrepreneurs and investors who somehow through the twists and turns of fate came together to “do something better” with real estate… and in specific… real estate education online.

We’ll tell you a bit more about what we do, what we stand for, and how we can help you have more fun in life and reach your goals.  But, before we do… lets dive in and introduce you to the team so you can see that we’re real… we have real lives (although they seem unreal sometimes 😉 …and we’re just normal people who try to do extraordinary things.


Head Of Real Estate Investor Faculty – Patrick Riddle

Patrick has been investing in real estate ever since he got the bug in college at Clemson University… and to his parents dismay… dropped out of college to dive full-time into real estate at the age of 22 with a couple partners/friends from school.  The first few deals were rough… mainly using their own cash, credit, and hard money loans… but soon found out that was a rough and unsustainable way to build a real estate company.  After “on the job” learning through the school of hard knocks at first… Patrick found the key that helped his company (Palmetto Property Solutions based out of Charleston, South Carolina) get deals done more quickly, without having to go to banks…

… that key for Patrick has been private money (using other peoples funds to close on their deals).

Over the years, his company has closed transactions…

Ranging from…

  • Foreclosure properties
  • Small multi-family
  • Short sales
  • Lease options
  • REO deals
  • Mobile homes
  • … and just about every other type of distressed property you can think of

Patrick loves teaching… and for the past few years has put a lot of focus into helping other people achieve their goals in real estate without the learning curve that he had to go through.

He’s made some BIG MISTAKES in this business. When you get a chance, check out this “Lessons Learned in the Trenches” video. Patrick’s hope is that you can learn from his mistakes and avoid them in your business and life.

You’ll find Patrick at his favorite local coffee hangout sipping on some iced coffee (if you ever meet him in person, buy him an iced coffee… he’ll love ya for it) or playing beach volleyball at the Windjammer.

Now that you know Patrick… head over and follow him on Twitter and friend him on Facebook.

Chief Member Experience Gal – Charity Akers 

Charity is the gal at PMBP who holds everything together for us.  From being in charge of Member (aka customer) Experience here at PMBP… to helping with admin tasks behind the scenes… she’s a huge part of our small little PMBP team. She is the one you’ll be talking with most of the time when you contact us… so say hi to her next time you chat w/ her 🙂

Director of Awesome – Jp Moses

JP-MosesJP Moses is a roughly-hewn man-child who first got into REI after reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad back in Y2K and went full time in 2002. He’s tinkered in everything from landlording to short sales to rehabs to Realtoring to REOs to notes to owner financing, blah, blah, blah…

… until he finally stuck his flag deep into wholesaling and has since flipped somewhere north of a couple hundred deals.

JP’s not a “guru” but also doesn’t think it’s a bad word. Among his core values are authenticity, creativity, big honkin’ value, general fun-ness and being unshaven. He’s super proud to be in charge of bringing more awesomeness to everything we do here.

Guy Who Crunches The Numbers (and knows his stuff) – Tim Krulia

Tim is our CFO and resident MBA (lot’s of acronyms eh?).  Tim used to work for Patrick’s real estate company and managed over 50 property renovations. Now, Tim started his own company and is our numbers guy and makes sure we’re on the straight and narrow. He’s also a big Steelers fan.
