    In real estate investing, we set up intermediate steps as rubicons that we need to accomplish on our journey to complete deals and achieve financial independence.

    For example, you might have the following rubicons

    • Determine your investing strategy or strategies
    • Get qualified for a loan
    • Acquire down payment
    • Find and analyze deals
    • Have enough passive cash flow to pay for your own housing
    • Achieved Minimum Target Monthly Income in Retirement (MTMIR)
    • Achieved Ideal Target Monthly Income in Retirement (ITMIR)
    • And many more...

    In this special class, James will provide you with a visual map of the rubicons you need to cross to achieve your specific real estate investing goals and discuss the ways to cross those rubicons.
