The number one question is always, "where do you find the time?"
I have almost completely stopped listening to music in the car. I treat my commute every day as if it was a college course. Listening to the news or some other dramatic time-wasting content does not cut it anymore. I have become highly selective about how I spend that precious daily hour.
The funny thing is, I always thought that the only way for me to learn something is by taking notes. Something I realized about myself during flight school is that everyone can learn through repetition. For example, for a while it was difficult for me to understand all the details of owning a rental property within a Limited Liability Company (LLC). But after listening to several podcasts explaining why it is important, the concept and all of its supporting arguments began to sink in.
The following list of three podcasts are my "go-to" for real estate investing information.
Two favorite online business podcasts:
My two all-time favourite books:
The single biggest shift in my financial mindset was when I read "The 4-Hour Workweek" by Tim Ferriss.
I stopped wanting large amounts of money and started striving for passive streams of income.
Do you really want to retire with a million dollars, or would you rather earn $10,000 every month? Once I read this book, it was easy to see that I really preferred the latter.
Personally, I recommend listening to the book first, and then going through the hardcover as a textbook for follow-up material.
This book changed my perspective on Real Estate forever. Best of all, it is a very quick read.
If you have ever read any other book on real estate or listened to any Real Estate Investing podcast, you have probably heard someone mention that the "Purple Bible" was what got them started.
This is a mindset book. If you are scared of starting Real Estate investing, this book will change the way you look at Real Estate forever.
Rich Dad Poor Dad really puts investing and retirement into perspective, I cannot recommend it enough!
