In this episode of “The Secrets to Real Estate Investing” with Hard Hat Holly, we get the opportunity to sit down with one of our youngest guests ever, Scott Trench. This mover and shaker knew soon after graduating from college that he didn’t want to be chained to a cubicle for the rest of his life. He didn’t want to spend his days making somebody else rich and making their dreams come true. After a lot of self-educating, Scott discovered the concept of financial freedom and set out to achieve this lofty goal. Through various methods such as frugality, house hacking, wise investing, and taking advantage of FHA low down payment opportunities, this inspirational young man has discovered how one can truly escape the need for wage paying work and replace it with passive income. He has since written his first book, “Set For Life,” where he teaches the average American middle income wage earner to achieve financial freedom in just 3-5 years. This can be accomplished with the brilliant tips and tactics that he discovered himself on this inspirational journey. Today he will share with our listeners many of the simple yet powerful techniques we all can use to increase our income, massively reduce our expenses, achieve financial freedom and live the life of our dreams!
