real estate side hustles

Chad Carson is a 30-something semi-retired real estate mogul, who together with his business partner, oversees a portfolio of 90+ rental units.

fundrise review

In 2015, I started building what I call “my cash flow portfolio.” This is a specific set of investments designed first and foremost to generate interest and dividends.
