If you’re wondering how to get out of the rat race in one year, I have two words for you:
I’m Matt Theriault, founder of Epic Real Estate. When I tell people about the story of how I got started in real estate without a dime to my name, I’m met with a lot of skepticism. The funny thing is, if I did it all again knowing what I know now, I could probably do it twice as fast!
But when I showed one of my students, 24-year-old Parker Styles, how to get out of the rat race, he did it four times as fast.
I can’t image a better story than his for anyone wondering how to get out of the rat race in one year.
Before he started in real estate, Parker was like most Americans—a slave to the 40-hour work week. He was constantly frustrated with the concept of trading his limited time for dollars. He never felt adequate as an employee.
Most of all, his job wasn’t leading him toward his financial goal: creating enough passive income to make his day job a choice rather than a necessity. If he achieved this, Parker knew how much stress would be lifted from his daily life and marriage. The entire culture of his home lift would shift… for the better.
Without a major career change, Parker feared he would be a slave to the rat race forever.
A New Life in 12 Months
Anxious to preserve as many of his youthful years as possible, Parker jumped right into The Badass Investor Program, where I taught him how to get out of the rat race in one year. In other words, I gave him the REI Ace Framework… and did he ever put it to good use.
Within 12 months, he met his ultimate goal. His passive income exceeded his monthly expenses, taking him out of the 9-5 work life for good.
Not only that, but he is finally living a life of options and freedom. His business operates virtually, with or without his presence, allowing him to take months-long trips to locations of his choosing. Passive income, or “mailbox money,” pays their expenses along the way. And if he wants to go mountain biking in the middle of the workday, he can do it. He’s his own boss! No more waiting for the clock to hit five.
[Investing] doesn’t always have to be an actual investment property. It can be an investment in yourself and your education, and that pays you tenfold—it just doesn’t happen immediately. You have to understand that to realize it’s going to be worth it.
