“Growing up my favorite hobby was driving through the rich neighborhoods with my brother,” says Greg Berry, founder of Mansion Map. “I've travelled the world looking at mansions and now want to share my passion and inspiration with others.”
Last week, Berry officially launched the Mansion Map platform as an interactive website that lets you search the world’s most wealthy neighborhoods. Further, it provides access to who lives in the house while doing a Google search on the owner.
“Homeowners names and addresses are public information widely available online,” says Berry. “If there is no public information, we won't learn anything. If the person has public profiles or information, we'll learn a bit about how they got so rich.”
As an entrepreneur, Berry began with no capital, no connections, and no experience. Life as a solopreneur for Berry also meant he had no mentors and little to no inspiration. But all that did was prompt him to find ways to inspire himself, and the biggest way to get a dose of inspiration was to learn about rich people and how they made their money.
“Some people have mentors, college reunions, associates, bosses, wealthy family members, etc,” says Berry. “I just had my dreams and an internet connection.”
