Great Insight Regarding Owning a Rental Home

This episode, launched on October 31, 2022, had great suggestions about owning a rental property. I learned a lot! Thanks for discussing this topic.

Everyone should hear this

As a fresh military officer, this podcast offers crucial information for me to have right now to build a solid financial foundation. Spencer and Jamie do an excellent job of covering all things finance while still keeping the topic interesting and relatable. I’d recommend this to anyone in the military looking to get a little smarter with their money.
