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

Dealing with our properties takes very little time and almost no work.

It’s completely passive income.  We just wait for rent checks to come in each month!

MILITARY EXPERIENCE

I’m currently in the United States Air Force living in Montgomery, Alabama one year from retirement.

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 an instructor at a military school finishing up the last year of my career.

CIVILIAN EXPERIENCE

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 plan to direct my effort to full-time real estate investing as well as finance and real estate education for the military community once I’m retired.

I have a wife, thirteen year old boy, and nine year old girl.

I hope my experiences and advice can help you avoid making large financial mistakes.

Next, I hope they put you on a path to financial independence.

I did it through careful savings 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.
