3 Key Points:

  1. Time is the same for everyone, from the biggest CEOs to the moms at home with 4 children. How everyone uses their time is very different.
  2. Traditional financial planning isn’t enough to keep up with the growing cost of society. Real estate is simply the best tool to build wealth.
  3. Investing a large amount of money in real estate investing education brings a lot of pressure to complete a large number of transactions.
