Real Estate Investing – Learning from My Mistakes

Real life is all about learning from our mistakes, growing/improving, and if we are lucky enough to be able to do so (which I am) share our insights/wisdom/knowledge gained with others. Unfortunately, the problem with the above approach, right off the bat, is admitting to ourselves (and to the world) that we even made a mistake to begin with…

I’ve been blogging since 2012, so you don’t have to tell me twice, and I know full well by now that attempting to be upfront and honest with people is not gonna win you many fans/followers…

For the most part, people aren’t interested in the truth when it comes to early FI… Instead, they want you to feed them a happy fairytale where the entire ride is smooth sailing and there are never any major bumps in the road…

Real Estate Meet Up – Last Night (October 17, 2017)

I attended a real estate meet up last night… Say what!?! Yup, that’s right, on a whim I decided to join a good buddy of mine and attend a workshop out in Fremont. I’ll admit, being in a classroom environment (after avoiding it for so long) felt kind of weird at first, and as the room started to get filled with more and more people, things just became more and more uncomfortable for me…

Having spent essentially an entire year out of the country, you’d be quite right in assuming that the thought of passive income crossed my mind on a regular basis.
