Ready to create lifetime cash flow and chase what really matters? Sometimes it takes more than guts to get our personal finances together and hit the best opportunities to invest, but we are here to help you. In this new Income Hacker episode, our guest Bo Kim will share how you can achieve financial freedom by building a passive income without necessarily quitting your regular job. Our guest for today has one big passion: helping others reach their financial objectives and live by their own passion. He is convinced that if there is a way you can work integrally on your goals, he can help you reach them sooner than you thought.
Bo has a business degree in Accounting and he is currently working for a CPA firm in California. He worked at a Financial Services Company where he started to grow his passion for personal finances and set a goal many of us aspire to achieve: financial freedom through passive income. Right now, Bo Kim owns 22 rental units across Kansas City, Indianapolis, and Little Rock. While he started by house hacking his primary residence, he now invests out of his own state and manages his properties in very clever ways. He is the host of Bigger Cash Flow Podcast host and loves helping newbies take control of their finances.
In this episode, Bo will teach us how to invest in real estate while still having a W2 job, and balancing it with real estate investing. We’ll talk about why you really shouldn’t quit your day job as soon as your passive income matches your earned income, but instead, start using other that extra income to level up your investments and achieve financial freedom faster!
