Hear me out…
I was in your shoes. I was a single mom working in the medical field for over 25 years and had been investing in my 401k (not to mention budgeting and saying 'no' to myself and my family far more often than I said ‘yes’).
One of the hardest days of my life was when I was forced to face reality…
I was 50 years old when my sons looked over my finances and told me that despite my efforts and hard work, I wasn't on track to retire comfortably without a part-time job.
As it turned out, I only had enough saved in my retirement account to ‘get by’ for 7 years before running out of money. And when I say ‘get by’, I mean I wouldn’t be traveling the world or living on the beach. I’d only have enough to pay my bills.
That's when I knew it was time to make a change... I took the leap of faith and finally said ‘yes’ to myself. Real estate investing was something I had been interested in for some time, but I’d always let fear and doubts creep in.
“I might be too old to learn something new…”
“What if I fail?”
Here’s the thing, I’d run out of options, and I had come to a fork in the road:
Option A: Stay exactly where I was and bury my head back in the sand. I could just continue hoping for the best…
Option B: Take the leap, trust in my abilities, and TRY.
To make a long story short, I chose option B and never looked back.
Fast forward a few years, and my retirement account is fully funded - and i'm showing you exactly how I did it.
