How to combine 2 creative investing strategies to reduce management headaches and increase your cash flow
If there was ever a year that laughed at our plans it was 2020. I think very few people made it through 2020 without having to entirely rethink their plans, goals, job, business, or travel plans. Yet I still maintain that creating goals is incredibly important because it sets intention and focus. And there are undoubtedly going to be times when you’re going to have to recalibrate or just completely rethink all of your plans. Life happens and you adjust. That could be the motto for 2020. Episode 147 explores what I'm doing currently and for 2021.
