Why A High Income Won’t Make You Rich with Charles Ayanleke, Episode 87

February 27, 2019

 

After constantly working 12-hour shifts as a doctor, Charles Ayanleke realized that he was not truly rich. While he made great money, he was missing out on time and moments with friends and family. Fortunately, he invested in duplexes to earn passive income, which helped him to eventually retire as a physician. On this episode, he shares why it was important for him to leave the medical field for real estate and why he invests in the Jacksonville and Cleveland markets.
