Everyone wants to be rich, and to be free of the constraints that their incomes place on their activities; however, not everyone knows how to get there, and after a while they are so securely ensconced in their 9 to 5 day job that they stop dreaming of anything more and start planning their retirement. That is a horrible way to live a life; what is the point of living if you have forgotten how to dream about something more?

The answer to this dilemma lies in real estate. Everyone knows that real estate is where the big money is. It’s all over the news and plays a role in almost every “get rich quick” scheme that has hit the market in recent years. It isn’t a secret, so why aren’t people taking advantage of it.

The answers are time and money, two things that people always seem to run out of at the end of the day. People continuously say that they do not have enough time to start a career in real estate because they are too busy working their 9 to 5 jobs, and they do not have enough money to leave these 9 to 5 jobs because they have families to feed. This probably sounds familiar. Everyone finds themselves in this position at some point or another unless they have been fortunate enough to discover the secrets of success early on.

What these people don’t realize is that starting a career in real estate does not mean sacrificing their day jobs. Real estate does not only exist from 9 to 5, Monday through Friday. It can be purchased in the middle of the night or on a glorious Saturday afternoon. It can work around their schedule-this is why so many people choose real estate for a career! It doesn’t have limits!

What does this mean? It means that fledgling investors can get their career off the ground without having to give up the security of their 9 to 5 existence. If they have a couple of hours a day to view properties and fill out paperwork they can be up and running. Remember, a great deal of the work involved with purchasing and rehabilitating a property is going to be outsourced; all they have to do is hold the phone and give directions.

Chances are that very quickly this part time job is going to eclipse the income brought in by their full time one, and they will be able to turn their attention to the process of becoming wealthy in one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
