Info that feels tailor-made for a busy, married, W2 professional

I truly appreciate the content Jay shares with his listeners. As someone who is working to eventually replace my W2 income with REI cash flow, there is a ton of info I’ve been able to take away from both Jay and his guests that will benefit me in that pursuit!
