Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guest Austin Clark as they talk about the quarter method, the thing you need to get past first before investing, and not letting anyone use your age to measure your abilities and course of action.
As Austin shares his experience and plans, we'll take away a ton of insight on the importance of knowing a market, the acronym that everyone in real estate should be familiar with, and the reason why he hates being asked about five-year plans so much. For him, not locking in on long-term goals can be okay.
With the right mindset towards normalizing discomfort, not having total control of your money, and weighing education over action, listen to how a soldier in his 20s brave the possibilities of passive investing.

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase “I don't get paid enough” entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! – Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
