Today marks a monumental step in my real estate "side hustle". After years of focus, dreaming, planning and execution; I've hit my first goal of 10 properties. The path was long and windy with setbacks and pitfalls but today I've reached my first milestone. Thanks to everyone along the way for the help and guidance, I couldn't have done it without you. Here's to a new year, a new decade and new goals down the road.

Huge thanks to the Bigger Pockets Podcast, @BiggerPockets .com, @Brandon Turner, @Joshua Dorkin and @David Greene for motivating and inspiring me to continue on my path. I couldn't have done it without you guys!

Congrats!!  I'm halfway to my ten which will probably take another 5-7 years for me at the slow *** rate I'm going.  Of course, not many people are in this enviable position as we are.  Here's to another 10 more for you!  

@Tim Rostro I started off slow and cautious too buying 1 house per year. After some research, I learned to power of secured loans and LOC helping me speed up the process.

@Dominique Palmer I currently have 10 SF houses but plan to transition into small multi family next. Not much to choose from in my area though.

Thanks everyone who commented!
