What it’s Like Living as an Active Overseas Real Estate Investor

Episode 68:

Between 1980 and 1982 Jackie Lange’s whole life changed when her son and daughter were born. She made the decision to quit her long distance operator job so she could stay home to raise her children. Luckily, she had a husband that was very supportive of her decision.

But, as the years went by, she realized that her whole life and livelihood for she and her children were completely dependent on her husband. With national statistics proving that 50% of all marriages end in divorce she knew that she needed to do something to create income of her own.

After being out of the workforce for 12 years, her employment prospects looked bleak. So she knew she would have to find a way to be her own boss if she wanted to make the kind of money she would need to support she and her children.

She looked into all kinds of work at home opportunities. The only one she found that would create the kind of income that she wanted to make was real estate. Instead of working 40 hours a week, she could make the same kind of income working just a few hours a week with real estate.

Real estate investing offered flexible hours and an unlimited income potential. After reading a few books in the library and studying a few courses, she started her quest to make money with real estate investing. From that point it only took her 3 weeks to cash her first check for $8,000.

She was totally hooked.

Now, she’s been successfully buying, selling, leasing and investing in real estate for more than 20 YEARS and has created a “not so small” fortune from real estate. She’s bought anything from a $400 mobile home to a $20 million dollar mansion to an 18,000 acre ranch and everything in between! She did this all with no college education (heck, she did good to make it through high school) so don’t worry, you don’t need a PHD or years of training to make the kind of money many doctors dream about!

It does not matter what’s happening with the economy. There are always opportunities to make money with real estate and people will always need a house to live in. What’s happening on Wall Street or with the government does not affect Jackie. She’s created her own economy and financial security.

In 2000, she met Jack Miller. He was the most brilliant real estate investor she had ever met. His seminars were filled with creative ideas but there was one problem. If you could not get on a plane and fly to his seminar, you could not learn from Jack Miller. So many people could benefit from learning Jack’s strategies, but they can’t all fly to a seminar every month. So she wanted to get Jack’s information recorded and online to help him reach more people. It took a lot of convincing, but after several years, she talked Jack into letting her record his events and get his information online so everyone could get the information they needed to be more successful in their real estate business. That’s how Cash Flow Depot was born.

Looking back, she can’t imagine where she would be if she had not discovered how to make money with real estate. It is the quickest and easiest way to make a lot of money fast.

She now lives in a tropical paradise in Central America…. thanks to the cash flow from her real estate investments. She owns a small coffee farm and still invests in real estate in Panama. In 2010 she started PanamaRelocationTours.com and now offers relocation tours in Panama and Ecuador.

You never know .. real estate investing could lead to an entrepreneurial lifestyle. Even if you don’t make a full time business out of real estate investing, just a few deals a year can keep you completely out of debt. Real estate can provide monthly cash flow, wealth accumulation, and tax savings not available with any other type of business.

There are many ways to make money with real estate which don’t require buying the house or getting a loan.
