I’m very interested in getting into buy-and-hold rental real estate. The additional income and the ability to grow a business that my family can be a part of just gets me all jacked up.

To continue to fan the flames of my real estate dreams, I’ve invited Chad Carson on the show today. Chad is a full-time real estate investor, world traveler, father of two and a dedicated husband.

For the last 15 years, Chad has built a real estate portfolio that has allowed his family to comfortably live without the need for full-time W-2 employment. He uses his extra time to spend quality time with his wife and kids and create lifelong memories together both locally and globally.

What are we covering?

Chad and I chat review:

  • How he got into buy-and-hold rental real estate
  • The strategies he used to scale his rental property portfolio
  • How he's able to travel the world with his young family while still maintaining a profitable business

Through the moniker Coach Carson, Chad now gives priceless advice on how to invest in real estate and retire early. He’s been featured in Rockstar Finance, Business Insider, Yahoo Finance, and his new book aptly titled “Retire Early with Real Estate” drops on August 23rd.

Enjoy this conversation! I definitely did.
