Achieving Financial Freedom at Age 32 with Austin Fruechting

Many people dream of achieving financial freedom, but how many actually get there? Today on The BiggerPockets Podcast, you’ll meet one man who did just that. Austin Fruechting began buying rental properties less than 10 years ago, but by the age of 32 was able to retire on the cash flow coming in. You’ll learn just how he was able to do this by reverse engineering success, buying rental properties in bulk, and using the BRRRR strategy to minimize the cash he needed to buy his properties. Whether you are looking to achieve financial freedom at 32, 52, or 72, this podcast is one you don’t want to miss!
