So I know this a tangent but I want to throw out there that I am a military wife and my husband and I have decided to homeschool our kids. It has really helped us be a bit more free with our real estate adventure but also, we can do real estate math!

Everybody wants to become a millionaire; but nobody wants to follow the success principles. People who drives expensive cars and wear expensive suits are not millionaires, these people are usually in heavy debt. People who look rich may not actually be rich. They are just over-spenders.
So so good. You are right: it’s not easy but is simple. I love the freedom our passive rental income gives us. We are taking a year off paid work right now! The personal finance side helped us save the cash to buy our properties, and keep our expenses low. Thanks so much for all the good info you create and compile.
