We often ask our 5 year old son, Jaden grownup questions to prompt a ridiculous response. They’re usually answered with something way out of left field, likely involving a park, chocolate, or ninjas. When ask what his thoughts were on passive and residual income – the response was priceless. Nailed it. And I had to make it into a short clip.
You know what doesn't interest me one bit? Working Monday-Friday. Setting an alarm. Being somewhere I don't want to be. Watching the clock. Wishing the week away for a glimpse of freedom on the weekend. We have 100 years if we're lucky. To live 65 of those on someone else's schedule? makes no sense. I believe in working smart not hard. Being a leader not a sheep. And in the fine words of the incredible Robert Kiyosaki- " The richest people in the world look for and build NETWORKS. Everyone else looks for a JOB" . If not now, when?
Our family is meant to live an extraordinary life. Past events have encouraged us to commit to health, and to pay attention to everything from the effects of stress to the benefits of nutrition, as well as the impact they have on how we live the next 50 years.

We imagined an incredible life blessed with a beautiful family, a lovely home, world travel, health, wealth and freedom. Since 2004 when our working lives began, we were quick to realize that we would not be able to accomplish all of our great goals in life, if we only had our ‘jobs’. We needed something more. Something to compliment our lives as employees. We were so caught up in fulfilling our employer’s dreams that we began to forget our own. And here’s the thing – I have loved my jobs. But I was still overstressed, underpaid, unfulfilled; with my core values compromised every day. Most importa...
We were destined to become entrepreneurs. 10 years ago, when we read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad, our lives were changed. We began to think differently. Instead of focusing only on making a living, we started to think about building multiple streams of income. We have been investing in Real Estate for years. Financially, these investments have done more for us than either of our ‘jobs’. Our income properties are our nest eggs, our children’s college funds and our retirement plan.
