We do it because we find these part-time gigs to be bigger and better than the limited satisfaction an 8 – 5 job can deliver. A great deal of working professionals find their identity and self-worth in their day job, but most part-time real estate investors just see things differently. We understand that a job is a means to an end – not the end itself.
