My guest today, Eric Martel, purchased his first apartment building at just 18 years of age while still at university. After graduation, in his position as an actuary, he was dismayed to see hundreds of company pension plans being rolled over into 401(k)s shifting the retirement risk to employees. This caused him to reconsider traditional beliefs about retirement saving. It also made him question his role as an actuary. So, he joined the lucrative technology industry. A few years later he lost a fortune during the Dot com crash of 2001 and he started looking for ways to earn passive income and stop trading time for money. He started various businesses, including a gourmet sauce company, but eventually he came back to his first love- real estate investing. He formed MartelTurnkey and after just four years of rapid success he was able to retire from my day job.

Prayer Request: That Eric and his wife can find the right organization to partner with as they look to build their non-profit. They'll be starting in Cleveland and Memphis.
