Sidney Torres is out to prove that the American Dream is still very much alive.
The host of CNBC's new show "The Deed" should know; He's achieved it.
"I really truly believe in [the American Dream]," Torres told Fox News.
Torres comes from humble beginnings. Growing up in New Orleans, the self-made entrepreneur struggled in school while dealing with dyslexia. Finally, in 1999, his grandmother agreed to cosign a loan for $50,000 so he could finance the first home he would flip.
"Not everybody has a grandmother that will cosign a loan for them, but there are mentors out there like myself that lend money to those who are serious," Torres said.
"The American Dream is not dead. I think it all depends on how our culture shows...that you can do it. It's a matter of wanting to do it," he added.
