Our military oriented real estate investing blog.
Do you ever wonder about your life and your financial situation after the military? Have you ever thought to yourself, "I wish I had another stream of income"?
People come up to me all the time and say things like, “Well, you are lucky because you know what you want to do after the military.” Not true. But I’ll tell what I do know: I know that I never want to be scrambling to find a “job” when I start the transition process.
Transitioning from a military career to civilian career is not easy. Even with all the help we get, the process is often not as successful as we dream it up to be. So what’s my solution?
Create as many streams of passive income as I can before I transition from military life to civilian life.
Cash flow is essentially anything that is left over from your investment...
In the military, we lead super busy lives and are not always privileged with the time to study and learn the secrets of the most of the most successful real estate investors. This causes us to go with the status quo and think that the only way we can make major purchases, or investments, is to go through a bank. However, this could not be further from the truth, and it is time for someone to shed light on the "tips and tricks" other real estate investors have used for decades to leverage funds from different investments to fund future ones.

I proudly served 22 exciting years in the Air Force as a calibration technician and laboratory auditor. It provided some of the best experiences in my life. Still, halfway through my career, real estate became more attractive than my military education and training. I began to purchase homes as I moved through assignments and always enjoyed talking about real estate investments. While I loved my country and was proud of my military service, it was easy to see that I had a second agenda in real estate. The military and real estate investments have provided security for my family, and I hope this article will teach other veterans of the opportunities to provide additional security for their families.
Growing Wealth Through VA Loans

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.
