What does passive income allow you to do?

2 Replies

I am just learning about real estate investing and it seems like a lot of work. Is it comparable to a 40 hour work week, just more flexible with time? I'm curious to hear how much time you put into REI a week and what you can do with your free time. I am an avid mountain biker so I would spend time riding in new places and making new riding friends.

@Nathan Boyer point blank if you are not willing to give it 100% and countless hours of education, action, making mistakes, a little stress from time to time then this is not the business for you. its not easy. Its stressful. It can be brutal.

BUT.... If it was easy then __________. 

I love what I do. RE investing Its an awesome business and the beauty is you can grow it to as large as you can imagine. You can own 2 properties or 2,000. It will be directly related to how much time and effort you want to put in.

You decide and good luck to you. At least give it a try and if you dont like it then at least you can say I gave it a go. Just dont let anyone tell you its easy because they are not telling you the truth. 

Thanks @Alex Deacon . I am willing to put in the back work to gain knowledge and experience. I was just wondering if people who have been successful in REI can enjoy a fairly relaxed life. Are they managing every aspect of things 8+ hours a day or can they work say only 3 days a week and travel the rest while keeping up with phone calls and emails, etc?
