Last week I attended a cashflow game meeting through Meetup.com. It was lots of fun and I meet a few retired people who had made a ton of money through their real estate investments, even though they had ordinary jobs. One was a carpenter and the other was a programmer.
Both of them bought at the bottom of a cycle and held on to their properties for 2 decades. The result was that they became millionaires and eventually were able to live off the income their assets produced. Both of them retired several years before they hit 65, although they still found profitable ways to stay busy.
If you haven’t seen Meetup.com check it out now. Its a great networking site. You don’t know what you’re missing.
