Now more than ever we all need income in addition to our regular J.O.B. This has always been true for those who aspire to wealth. But with the uncertainties and anxieties around our economy in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to maximize income and returns from every source. On this call we will look at the various types of income and every participant will be encouraged to start making a plan to develop at least one more source of income. This is NOT by taking a second job. Earned income is only one form of income (out of 7 or 8). You might be surprised at how many things you can trade for money!

Mike Ventry will join us and discuss how you can use a self-directed retirement account to invest in income producing assets like real estate. Mike is the Director of Business Development at American IRA . He has over 15 years of experience as a Top Producer in the mortgage banking industry, in the Atlanta area. During his 40+ years in the Atlanta area, he has started, built and sold multiple companies to large national corporations. He has an exceptional background in providing superior customer service and communication to his clients. Mike holds an MLO license with the Federal and State Departments of Banking and Finance. In his current role, he assists new clients and investors by providing them with the education and knowledge to be successful in self-directing their retirement accounts. He regularly teaches a 3 Hour CE class on self-directing for realtors. Mike also is a frequent attendee and guest speaker at real estate (and non-real estate) associations and networking groups in the Atlanta and the South East. Mike has been a contributor as an expert resource for Think Realty Magazine along with many other financial and real estate radio shows and podcasts.The call is sure to contain many actionable steps and ideas to help you plan now and act when the time is right.

It’s a scary time for many people. Many have lost their jobs or have been furloughed. No one knows when or if we will ever get back to normal. Our plan MUST include surviving. But if we can make adjustments to our lifestyles as needed and continue the discipline of saving and investing we can actually move forward. Perhaps you can supplement income by wholesaling properties. You can make money as a Flipping America Affiliate and there may be other affiliate opportunities available to you. Here several ideas on this call.

We are going to take the “flea market flip” approach to this. (Have you seen that show? It’s been awhile.) We are going to take stock of whatever is at hand (time, money, skills, knowledge, etc.) and we are going to turn that into money. Then we will use that money to create more money. Let’s flesh out that plan to add at least one more income stream before the end of May. You can do this! I'm rooting for you. I'm rooting for us!
