Not everyone has what it takes to get to the point where we have no debt (mortgage included) and have multiple passive income streams that easily pay for any and all of our expenses.  I’m slowly working my way towards that as my wife and I only have a car loan, that will be paid off by March and our mortgage.   I still need help in figuring out the next steps to take in order to achieve my ultimate …

One important lesson I have learned from reading blogs from people like Steph Davis (FlipThisWholesaler.net), Shae Bynes (GoodfaithInvesting.com), Kelly (KellyFlippinCali) ,Nick Johnson (Subject2.com) and many many others (I think I’m going to write a post about all the blogs I read one day soon), is that small successes are essential to every accomplishment.
