The first time I felt drawn to the world of investing and real estate was when I had just graduated from college and wanted to create wealth and reach financial independence for me and my family.
I found a job that still offered a pension after working for 20 years. After being there for 10 years, I calculated my future pension upon retirement and shockingly realized I would receive far less than 40% of my pay as a pension. There was no way I could retire on this and it would require me to find a second career after retirement, as many have done.
I was emotionally devastated and crushed because I wasn't sure if I could reach my goal of financial independence through my W-2 job. I knew there had to be a better way because I had seen others around me reach financial independence and create multi-generational wealth through investing.
After many trials and tribulations, I started to do a lot of research into real estate. I attended seminars, webinars, meetups, various networking events, and read dozens of books and articles about real estate. I joined a community of multifamily investors where we mentored and helped each other invest in real estate.
After years of focus, it finally worked! I knew I had succeeded when I became financially independent with my passive income through real estate. Now, I can serve others by helping others relying on a pension create wealth and make financial independence possible.
