Real estate investing
Larry Alton has nearly two decades of experience as an entrepreneur, freelance writer, business consultant, and independent real estate investor. As a writer, Larry's goal has been to translate technical finance, investing, and technology industry jargon into easily digestible, readable content. Along the way, he's been published in not only The Balance SMB, but other business-focused trades including Entrepreneur, Inc, TheNextWeb, Business.com, and BiggerPockets.
In addition to journalism, technical writing and in-depth research, Larry is also active in real estate investing and spend weekends volunteering with a local non-profit literacy organization.
Larry earned a bachelor's degree in business from Iowa State University.
