Cash milestones: Paid off two mortgages value $200,000 and retired from their company jobs earlier than turning 40

Private finance e book advice: “The Wealth Selection: Success Secrets and techniques of Black Millionaires” by Dr. Dennis Kimbro

When the Saunderses realized concerning the Monetary Independence/Retire Early motion, they embraced the problem of saving and investing aggressively. They began making passive revenue by way of a rental property, and have since paid off the mortgages on their rental property and their very own residence, totaling $200,000. 

The couple efficiently retired from their company jobs earlier than turning 40. They now depend on their investments and their weblog Rich & Regular for regular revenue.

The e book that influenced their monetary journey is “The Wealth Selection” by Dr. Dennis Kimbro.

Julien says, “I am very aware of the work that he is carried out that’s particularly catered to the Black neighborhood. He is somebody who began getting ready folks in my era for having these conversations about cash. I take nice delight in figuring out we could have the chance, by way of Wealthy & Common, to fill the hole together with others in that area.”
