Let’s see who does more hiking this year—me or interest rates?
People with a mentality of trading time for dollars have a certain way of looking at life.
Now… sure. It’s good for you to produce for society in the workplace.
Hordes of employees spend oodles of time and energy learning about how work works.
What’s unusual is that they spend little time learning about how money works.
The irony? Money is the main reason that they go to work.
Often, these people end up viewing money as a scarce resource.
They either postpone or jeopardize their freedom by focusing on 401(k)s and IRAs.
How much leverage are you getting in your retirement plan?
What’s the “rent-to-value” ratio on your mutual fund or non-dividend-paying stock?
Both answers are zero.
See, many people view an “investment” like a baseball card. The only way to profit is if you buy lower and sell higher.
If there’s any gain, one must adjust it for: inflation, emotion, taxes, and fees.
On the other hand, people who realize that the mission is to build things that pay you while you own them have a different way of looking at life.
When you’re paid five ways, money can become an abundant resource in your life.
It’s the difference between living to financially survive or thrive.
The old proverb goes: “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”
Well… why not do both?
Metaphorically, GRE teaches you how to fish through our podcasts, videos, newsletter, social, and this blog; but GRE also gives you fish.
As a matter of fact, I have an announcement to make: GRE Marketplace is live!
The resources that you need to find real assets that pay you to own them are on GRE Marketplace. This is where GRE “gives you fish”—you get to take action, apply your financial education, and shop for cash-flowing assets.
GRE Marketplace is the portal through which you can buy income-producing property.
It’s an upgrade from our former GRE Turnkey site. Previously, if you wanted to connect with three providers, you entered information three separate times.
Now, it’s all-in-one.
Once you’ve signed up, you will have access to all of our real estate providers including: a market overview, sample properties, pro-formas, and their contact information.
Our COO, Aundrea Newbern, interviews each property manager to help you find the right fit.
This is actionable stuff.
(As a new site that we’ll continuously improve, you’ll notice that we made a “Contact” area at the top of the page for your feedback.)
These providers love when you indicate that you’re a GRE follower. They know that you’re educated.
If you’re new to real estate investing, but have learned a little, then start small while you think big. Afterall, getting started is when the real learning begins.
Every market is unique. Compare investment models, watch interviews, and connect with providers in your favorite markets right here.
For almost everyone, there are only two major paths to financial freedom:
- Own a business
- Own real estate
“Debt-free” is not one of them.
In fact, both often involve using other people’s money (leverage).
Compared to owning an active business, real estate gives you:
- A system to plug into. You don’t have to invent the next Instagram.
- The easiest access to leverage.
- Greater passivity.
