A Goal Reached

While working for the Xerox company to pay the bills, and throughout all his attempts at new businesses, he kept striving to build a business and find financial independence.  In so doing, he continued to invest in assets like real estate.  And slowly, but surely, he invested in enough real estate to reach one of his main goals; financial freedom. He reached his goal of having more cash flowing in every month from his investments than was flowing out to pay living expenses.

Eventually, Robert would use his milestone success in real estate to find even more success. He leveraged his real estate success until his education company gained traction.  Then, shortly after seeing success in his new venture, he sold that company and leveraged his new-found wealth to start another education company.  And it was this company where he found his major success.
