My name is Rich.  I like to talk about money.

  • 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.

Taking care of our properties takes very little time and almost no work.

I did almost all of this on one government salary while living overseas.

I’m currently in the United States Air Force living in Germany and about 4 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, 10 year old boy, and 6 year old girl.

I want to share my financial ups and downs on this blog and help others get rid of debt, create passive income, and live well.

Read my first post, which pretty much covers my entire financial life, including how I discovered real estate.
