Anyone can become a real estate investment owner. There I said it. This is an opportunity that is open to anyone. And the best part is that it can provide so much for not only your current monthly income but it can help you build wealth exponentially over time. I had the chance to sit down with Rylan Pyciak, who has done a phenomenal job over the last 13 months EASILY kicking off his investment portfolio and securing his financial future, even during times such as these. As a business owner, he knew he needed to add to his portfolio to create financial stability. He knew that just owning his company wasn't enough. I'm grateful that he took the time to share what the most important steps were to him in the process. In turn, I hope this can help you know how to start the process of becoming not only a homeowner but own multiple investment properties. Because when you build wealth through real estate you open up a multitude of possibilities.
