Whenever you read a mainstream personal financial book, you will invariably encounter how easy it is to become a 401k millionaire. All you have to do is skip lattes or avocado toast and invest the savings into your retirement. For instance, David Bach has registered a trademark called “The Latte Factor.” He talks about how […] ...

One of my favorite ways to find off market deals is by mowing my own lawns. Sure, it's not for everyone, but you can't beat the exercise as seen by my latest fitness summary. This was after mowing 6 lawns last Saturday. Currently, I'm clipping and weed whacking 25 lawns excluding my house. Some of the […] ...

Hello fellow Ten to Millionaires! My latest podcast interview just hit the airwaves. I’m a huge fan of learning while doing. On weekends and in between commutes, I’m running around with my wireless earbuds with various podcasts humming in the background. Nothing better than listening to a podcast while working on a rental. If you […] ...

Have you ever looked at your 401k or IRA and wondered if you could do better with a rental property' Look no more. I'm going to show you why a boring single family rental (purchased correctly) runs circles around your employer sponsored 401k once you include all the investment factors the financial service industry and investment media fail to include when making a proper real estate versus 401k comparison. ...

Good news!  Bigger Pockets, the leading site for real estate entrepreneurs, asked me to elaborate on some comments I made on their site last week. The next thing I know, I’m being asked to write an article.  Here is the article Dave Ramsey is Wrong: You DON’T Need to Be Debt-Free to Hit Financial Freedom […] ...

  Whenever someone says my home is an investment I cringe. It is all I can do to keep my mouth shut. I simply nod and think to myself “Does this person know the definition of an investment'” Here’s my definition of an investment. A small outflow that puts a massive inflow in your pocket […] ...

In the last post we discussed the importance of knowing your WHY. This concept is so important that I’m going to share my origin story. It is not as epic as Iron Man. I didn’t gain superpowers, unless you think my ten properties in ten years is superhuman. Maybe…just maybe..it will inspire you to buy, […] ...

On the last post, we discussed the tax benefits of passive income versus active income as applied to earning a $50,000 salary at your day job versus earning the same amount through real estate as a real estate professional. By ditching the commute to the cubicle, Passive Pia’s take home pay was 24% higher than […] ...

In 2013, the media went nuts when the third richest person in the world (April 2016) stated that his secretary was in a higher tax bracket than him. Wowza… How on earth could Warren Buffet say such a thing' Clearly, he must be a tax cheat. I bet he has some off shore bank accounts […] ...

  In 1984, Apple rocked the establishment with the introduction of the Macintosh computer. It changed the entire PC industry and in my opinion, marked the fall of IBM. In the Super Bowl commercial, Big Brother (from George Orwell’s dystopian novel) is IBM and Apple is the agent of change that finally frees the people […] ...
