Self Doubt is a Good Thing Says Daryl Carter
National Multifamily Housing Council
Avanath's CEO, Daryl Carter during his fireside chat at the Newport Beach Speaker Series
Nearly 60 Emerging Leaders gathered in Newport Beach on August 3 to hear from industry veteran, Daryl Carter, Immediate Past Chairman of NMHC and CEO of Avanath Capital Management. 
In a discussion moderated by Green Street’s Dave Bragg, Carter talked candidly about the lessons he’s learned from forming two companies over his career, both interestingly started during downturns.
His first business was Carter Primo, started during the 1991 recession. Given the economic conditions, Carter said he had 58 meetings and everyone said no.  “I only got to yes on the 59th meeting."
His latest company, Avanath, was started in 2008, during the depths of the Great Recession. In hindsight, Carter concluded the period was a "great launching pad.”  But he added “I don't necessarily recommend it."
