Lately, the shows and interviews I’ve been doing have been focusing on decreasing your expenses and increasing your income. When we make improvement in these two areas, it’ll allow us to become experts in increasing our net worth and our opportunities for financial independence. Today, we’re diving into increasing your income through real estate.
Earlier this year, I set a goal of having a net worth of $1,000,000 by the time I turn 40. What seemed like a lofty goal at one point in my life now seems decently feasible. I owe a lot of that success to the investment I’ve made in my education. And no, I’m not talking about college degrees (Go Green!). I’m talking about the small investments I’ve made in purchasing some of the most inspirational, eye-opening and motivating books out there on business, personal finance and professional growth.
In May 2010, I married my dream girl. She was funny, beautiful and chock-full of 90’s TV trivia. Our first couple of dates consisted of a lot of Saved by the Bell and Seinfeld jokes.
Outside of knowing the Soup Nazi episode verbatim, Nicole and I both came into the marriage knowing the general basics of personal finance. You know, advice like:
- “Don’t carry a credit card balance”
- “Always have some savings for a rainy day”
- “Good debt is okay to have”
Hello Nicole. I’m not really dead.
Sorry about that spooky title.
But if I do die unexpectedly, I want you to give you and the kids a clear path to feel safe and well taken care of …
Hence why I’m writing this letter to you today …
