Confessions of a Real Estate Entrepreneur by James Randall

This book goes beyond the normal fix and flip, buy and hold strategy. This really aligns with what we believe here at TRE: Making money on ALL aspects of real estate.

Real estate investing is not some magic potion to riches. Yes, it’s a means for making a lot of money. But it’s no risk-free, lazy man’s way to wealth. It’s hard work. And there is definitely risk involved. But with information, diligence, determination, and calculated risk, there is plenty of opportunity to make A LOT of money. – James Randall

Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant: Guide to Financial Freedom by Robert Kiyosaki

Cashflow Quadrant talks about the differences between being an employee, self-employed business owner, and then being an investor.

It also discusses the transition between going into one quadrant into the other and how to eventually get into the investor-side of things. This is where we ultimately want to be.

We want our money working for us, having it grow, and not having to participate in the daily activities of the business.

This book opened my eyes because if someone who might just be getting started as a self-employed business when we stop working, the business stops working.
