My name is Rich. I like to talk about money. While serving in the military:
- I 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 me build income for real estate investing.
- Have purchased several rental properties with cash.
Dealing with our properties takes very little time and almost no work.
I did almost all of this on one salary while living overseas.
I’m currently in the United States Air Force living in Korea and about three years from retirement. I’ve traveled and worked in many parts of the world.
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 have a wife, eleven year old boy, and seven year old girl.
I hope my experiences and advice can help you achieve financial independence. I did it through real estate. Maybe it’ll work for you.
Read my first post, which pretty much covers my entire financial life, including how I discovered real estate.
