Hey BP,

My name is Chris, im 30 years old and just purchased my first home which is also my current residence.  Ive always been interested in investing in real estate and now that I've moved into my own home my thirst for financial  freedom is growing by the day.  I work in the construction industry as a structural steel fabricator (welder / fitter.) This job pays pretty well in my area but its proven to be extremely rough on the body, i know it wont last forever.  This has really been the driving factor to put myself and my family into a better situation.

Welcome to BP! 

I know a lot of guys in the construction industry. They seem to make good money but they don't have the greatest health and their body eventually breaks down. 

You are wise to consider building your own financial freedom. If you start now, you could likely replace your W-2 income by the time you are 40 and then choose to continue working, switch to real estate investing full-time, or sit on a beach in Mexico and live the easy life.
