I sometimes wish I did this way earlier. I'd be well along by now if that was the case.
I know it's bad thinking about all the wasted paychecks paying landlords when I could have been RVing from the time I was 30.
But hey, this education and eventual realization came late.
It's ok. I know NOW.
Some people find all this out when they are about to retire.
Lucky to have realized all this now while I am sort of still young.
Now for the thought of the day.
Just imagine if your income annually was 80k... and you sacrificed for 15 years and lived frugally and in an RV... by the time you are 35, you'd have close to a million dollars. It staggers me now the sheer amount of money that goes to landlords and banks.. not to us.
Sure, flipping a home is the only way you can actually make money with that investment. Some people are happy doing that. But for the rest of the people? They fritter away what would have been a fortune renting and paying for things they think they need so that society would accept them.
A million bucks by the time you're 35. Imagine that.
No 401k will ever do that for you.
