Hello All,

I am a 37 year old husband to my awesome wife (Bre) and father of one crazy 3 year old boy (James) and a soon to arrive baby girl (Kate).  I love being a dad and want to put a plan to action that lets me spend more time with my kids.

My wife and I are just getting into real estate investing and look forward to putting a solid plan in place to get $10,000/mo. in passive income over the next 5 years.  Our initial plan was to get there buying 12 properties over 10 years with a combination of all cash transactions and leveraged positions, but I wonder if we are being too conservative.  I have done well financially in my career and recently resigned from my company to focus on investing full time.  I am looking forward to meeting other investors I can learn from and possibly partner with while focusing on real estate rentals.

Best Regards,
