Returning to the US after nine years in the Caribben, dead broke as a result of the illegal confiscation of all my property by the corrupt local island government, no one would hire an ex-New York City ad salesman in South FLorida. Any idiot can sell real estate, I said. Soon I learned no one gets rich selling other peoples real estate--you gotta have your own. Three years later, having taken 33 real estate seminars all over the US, I owned 77 rental houses, 12 duplexes and built a trailer park near Tallahassee, FL.The book goes into great detail on the importance of having good credit--and how to build one if yours is damaged.
Writing as though one is sitting with me at those seminars, I describe the nuances, the shocking facts of how easy it is to become independently wealthy just by sacrificing a few years of very intensely stressful days and nights. The most amazing part to me--I didnt really start till I was 62 and facing a bleek future with no pension, no savings!
