Are you interested in retiring early with real estate but don’t want to manage hundreds of properties to do so? Today’s guest has managed to travel to 54 countries in the last three years after retiring in his 30s by owning just FIVE properties.
Brad Dantonio shares exactly how he reached financial independence at such a young age by focusing on three unique skill sets (and how you can, too). In this episode, you’ll learn how Brad has created “time wealth,” how he tracks every expense he has, and how he achieved the equivalent of a four-year degree while sitting in Houston traffic!
Brad also gives us the three tips he shares with young people (including how to take your journaling to a whole new level), how he forever changed his relationship to fear, and how learning the art of delaying gratification at a young age gave him an advantage over his competition for life! Brad has a fantastic story of overcoming adversity as a young child and using his setbacks as fuel to create the system he used to retire early and live the life of his dreams. If you want to use real estate to live your best life, this is an episode you don’t want to miss!
