Real Estate mogul Joe Fairless is the founder of Fairless Investing and currently owns almost $170 million in real estate. He designs his life so that he can spend time pursuing his passions and purpose. His life’s purpose is helping people achieve financial success. Joe believes that when he helps other achieve financial success, they too can use their time to pursue their own passions and purpose. However, before following his dreams, Joe worked paycheck to paycheck, and eventually started investing in learning more about real estate while working a full-time job in advertising. He went to seminars, read books, and received mentorship from people who had done what he wanted to do.

It wasn’t enough to live off of but it sure helped out, considering he no longer had a job.
