Is it your dream to quit your W2 job and pursue real estate investing full-time? Unfortunately, the transition from working for someone else to becoming your own boss doesn’t happen overnight. As you’re about to learn from today’s guest, there are several factors you MUST consider before handing in your two-week notice!
Welcome back to the Real Estate Rookie podcast! Today, we’re chatting with Matt Marcelissen, an HR consultant by day and investor by night. In only a few years, Matt has built a real estate portfolio of four properties and eleven doors. Now, he finds himself at a crossroads. Should he quit his corporate job to focus on real estate? On one hand, Matt’s six-figure salary provides a sense of financial security and allows him to save money for more real estate. On the other hand, Matt commits most of his time and energy to his W2 job during the day—leaving him too mentally and physically exhausted to work on his real estate business.
In this episode, Ashley and Tony offer some invaluable advice to not only Matt but also any rookie investor who might be considering a full-time career in real estate. Whether it’s sticking with your W2 job, dialing back to part-time, or creating multiple streams of income, there are all kinds of ways to make real estate work for you. Stay tuned to find the BEST option for you!
