Financial Freedom for Veterans Those Who Serve Active Duty  Spouses Military Families

Our Story

Active Duty Passive Income (ADPI) was born from the idea that there absolutely has to be a better way to plan for one’s future while still in the military. Whether you plan on staying in for 3 years or 30 years, some day you will be a civilian again and will need to find a new source of income.

ADPI Founder Markian Sich discovered a strong passion for real estate investing by searching for the absolute best way to increase his income. After months of research, he jumped right into partnering with his family on both Multifamily Real Estate and Single-Family Real Estate deals.

Markian started building Active Duty Passive Income as a way to document his journey, educate other military and veterans, and foster a community of like-minded individuals with the common goal to better their lives and to achieve financial freedom. Soon after the website was live, other real estate investors joined the ADPI team and have made it into what it is today:

The best place for military members and veterans to learn about real estate investing and grow their passive income!
