“I don’t take a salary from the business—I reinvest it into real estate. It paid for our first home down payment.”
Jessica started a small beauty business out of her kitchen and is now earning over $20,000 a month. Her day job covers her living expenses, and she puts the extra cash [from her side business] straight into her FI/RE fund.
Jessica’s goal is to buy five rental properties with her side hustle—and then to live off of the rental income. After she retires early, she plans to travel more often and spend more time outdoors camping and backpacking with her husband.
