Real estate investing is about more than just making money in the here and now – it’s also about setting up your future for a solid retirement with minimal hassle and maximum wealth. However, planning for that time in your life is not always the most easy-to-understand task. To help, we sit down with investment specialist Jeff Brown, a very common face around the BiggerPockets Blog, to discuss some of the best ways to find mentors, what you can do to start preparing for retirement right now, and how to invest in notes using cash or your self directed IRA or 401K. This show is filled with a lot of really actionable, in-depth content so be sure to have your notepad ready – you’re going to need it!
