How To "Get It Right" As A Young Enlisted Service Member with Eric Alvarez

Episode: 133

Eric Alvarez

Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guest Eric Alvarez as they talk about prudence and frugality, what investing is about, how real estate is less liquid, and the right mindset and savings that gets a young soldier into real estate passive investing the right way.

As Eric and the hosts exchange plans and experiences, we'll get to hear about what they think essentially equips a young go-getter to be ahead of his years and his goals. For them, relationships, network, and market are things that no one should let go of even if their eyes are on other several opportunities.

In the military, Eric believes that the great opportunity of getting paid, no matter what, should also mean an opportunity for young service members like him to take risks and invest. Of course –with a balanced risk-tolerance. Let's catch more of what they have to say by tuning in to the episode.

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! - Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
