Self Sufficiency – Friday Fundamentals The Real Estate Way to Wealth and Freedom

    • Investing

Hi and welcome to The Real Estate Way to Wealth and Freedom podcast.


I hope all is well on your end. There is so much going on in the world today. I want to acknowledge all the people around the world that have been impacted recently. There are times when things happen that are completely out of our control and we feel like we're at the mercy of our environment. Just know that this too shall pass.


With the CDC recommending social distancing (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/community-mitigation-strategy.pdf) , I’m glad we're able to still connect virtually on the podcast today!


If you're anything like me, you've been watching the news cycle lately and maybe even stressing yourself out with all the things going on. While I’m certainly paying attention, I have to turn my attention to more positive news and productive channels to keep my sanity (and be glad most of my investments are in more stable and still cash-flowing real estate!). Here are some books and podcasts I’ve been reading/listening to lately that help offset all the negative news.

2.    Episode 284 (https://www.getricheducation.com/episode/284-coronavirus-and-your-money/) of my favorite podcast, Get Rich Education, where the host and my good friend, Keith Weinhold, discusses COVID-19 and how it impacts real estate investing.

 Two things I'm thankful for are my ambition and my habit of looking for opportunities in things. There are opportunities everywhere you look. The eye just has to be open to them. Often these opportunities will not reach out and grab to you. They’ll come as subtle hints. Continue to be open to new ideas and look for opportunities,


 “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” - Albert EinsteinThere have been a few exciting things on my end. As you know, I’ve been investing in real estate for about 5 years now and have been scaling up through multifamily properties in emerging markets with strong economic and demographic growth.

 This week’s Friday Fundamental is Social Security and Self Sufficiency


Social security, broadly defined (by me), is a program or institution that provides social benefits to its people. In the U.S. we’re lucky to have a strong social security system. Our social security system provides support to people in the form of financial assistance, healthcare, disability support, and more. Providing this support to those who need it helps our society, by ensuring that basic needs are available to everyone. From there, we’re on our own to strive for more.


Self-sufficiency describes someone who is completely dependent on one’s self for basic needs and prosperity. From a homesteader in the remote Alaskan wilderness to a successful business owner or established real estate investor, self-sufficiency comes in many shapes and sizes.


Being that wealth and freedom are the two pillars of this show, self-sufficiency is where we strive to be. Self-sufficiency, to me, means relying on myself to create my own success and outcomes. It means that it’s my responsibility to determine how I want to live my life, then set goals to achieve those things. It means that my financial success, economic status, and eve
