Read this blog if you want to know how much I make from YouTube:

    He's fine as hell and the fact that he's wealthy makes it even better.

    I've been invested in real estate since the age of 20, going on 24 now and I have worked harrrddd doing manual labor saving up money with what is considered a decent pay where I live (45k) and the real estate I have is land so it's not paying yet… Most of us won't have 150k jobs in our teens and I'm here to tell you guys it's still possible to put money aside if you sacrifice other things and are smart with money..

    I was getting to a question though. I have a very significant amount (for me) invested in CryptoCurrency and other investments, if I were to pull out everything I could buy 3 multi family homes… What do you guys think should I stick with the risky/higher reward crypto and online ventures or is it wiser to invest in real estate..? Plus I quit my job i've been "retired" for 3 months now xd so income is not great at the moment but I'm free.

    Sure….your tenants signed a lease and they have a legal obligation to pay reliably. But that doesn’t mean they will though.

    That’s why we created a program that will hold them accountable and will assure you that your rent will be paid on time and in full. Please contact us to see how we can help. Rentremedy(dotcom), 1-800-931-0449

    A lot of negative comments on here, sometimes it’s easier for people to try and bring others down to their level than it is for them to build themselves up to theirs, nice to see another guy made it, people see a guy with money and assume they are lucky and haven’t had to put the work in, no one thinks of the hard times and work the guy has most probably gone through. Well done and good on you 👍

    I got my master's degree 25 years ago in maths. Always worked as a software developer. Now 25 years later I earn € 2500 per month. What went wrong with me?

    Very inspiring. Except things are a bit different when you have three kids and a spouse. There is no such thing as spending as little as possible or saving.

    If ur taking 10k for 26 units I'm guessing ur still paying on the properties. Which u take home about 384.00 each give or take
