My name is Rich. I love to discuss doing money and real estate right.
While serving in the military:
- We paid off $32,000 in student loans in a year
- Paid off our $280k mortgage in 6 years
- Flipped several houses in Washington D.C. to help build income for real estate investing
- Purchased 20 rental properties with cash
- Set up systems to do all of this while serving overseas
I just retired from the United States Air Force. I’m now living in Montgomery, Alabama, where all my properties are.
I served 19 years as a Special Agent in the Air Force (similar to NCIS).
I’ve worked with embassies all over the world, and had the chance to work closely with NATO, the UN, and even negotiate peace treaties.
I’m now self-managing my 30 properties. It takes very little of my time.
I have been interested in real estate and investment ever since I was a child.
I worked at Fidelity Investments as a stock broker in college, and have devoured most finance and real estate books out there.
I’m now retired from the military and financially independent. I’ll focus on real estate, learning guitar, traveling, and whatever else I can dream up.
I have a wife, fourteen year old boy, and ten year old girl.
I hope my experiences and advice can help you avoid making large financial mistakes and put you on the path to financial independence.
I was lucky enough to do this through careful saving and investing, frugal living, and smart real estate choices. It wasn’t always smooth sailing, but I think I’ve figured a few things out.
Maybe what I’ve learned can help you.
