About FMTM

Meet Dave Pere

Pronounced like “Hip- Hip – Per-A”! 🙌🏽

I am a Marine Corps veteran of 13 years, and am currently in the reserves. In 2015 I purchased my first real estate investment–A duplex that I house hacked–and after seeing first hand the way that cash flow could change my life, I went all in on real estate and improving my personal finances!

In 5 years I went from a negative net worth, to a millionaire with 100+ rental units, and was able to transition off active duty to work for myself! Along the way I started documenting my journey on this website (and social media)…which blossomed into a massive community of “Military Millionaires” and future Military Millionaires, that I’m now blessed to make my main focus.

Currently, I spend my time helping service members, veterans, and their families learn how to build wealth through real estate investing, entrepreneurship, and personal finance!

I even wrote a book about it!

Why We Exist

We're here to help you!

I wasted the majority of my first two enlistments, financially. I spent money on tattoos, cars, guns, dates, and anything else “cool.” I wish I had known about investing in real estate, the stock market, and myself at a younger age.

Now, we have replaced our income with passive income, and realized that a lot of people still don’t have access to the information required to become financially free in the military. That is why our blog, book, podcast, and everything else exists…to help service members avoid saying “I wish I had known about this sooner” with their finances and benefits!

Wouldn’t it be nice to exit the military, and never HAVE to work for anybody again? Well, it is absolutely possible–I’m living proof of that, and we haven’t even reached retirement age in the military.

You can absolutely achieve financial freedom as well, and I want to help you on this journey so that you too can enjoy the freedoms you worked so hard to protect!

So…How can we help?

We help the military community learn how to build wealth through real estate investing, entrepreneurship, and personal finance!

We know that with a little nudge, anybody can learn how to save, invest, and multiply the money they are earning.

Come on then, join us on this journey 🙂

Sometimes you just need the right
