Time to Take More Control
I work in the real estate industry and I've scaled my life to a respectable middle-class suburban landscape. I grew up in Baltimore and wanted far better for my daughter. Since 2002, real estate has seen its ups and downs. At one point I made VERY good money. At this point, I make descent money, but it doesn't fully support the life I built. More concerning, I'd hate to loose any more money-making ability from one more negative real estate movement. I need to have more control over the finances I bring into my home. I'll increase my feeling of security if I have a revenue stream outside of real estate, and I'm prepared to do the work to make that happen.
