Welcome to Cash Flow Diaries. My name is J. Alexander and I am on the road to financial freedom. I am trying to build a mini real estate empire so that I can be financially free, retire early and just be able to do whatever the heck I want in life! My plan is to be financially free as soon as I am making 100k per year in passive income.
Please note I will remain somewhat anonymous because I am exposing all my actual net worth and real numbers to the world and we all know there are bunch of crazies out there not to mention my family doesnt even know I do this. 🙂
Here’s the why:
I created this blog to be used as a personal diary (cash flow diary if you will) to track my journey. It will be a journey of ups and downs while I build enough passive income to retire early and to reach financial freedom. I really, really want to quit my current day job. Ahh, the dreaded day job. I want out of it ASAP!! Its a good job and a good company but I am tired of what I do, tired of working for people and tired of having a set schedule. I am super determined and motivated to get out of this rat race.
Here’s the how:
I will use this blog and update it as often as possible to track my net worth, my actual personal finances and all my experiences with investing in rental properties, blogging and just overall personal finance. Pretty much anything I do to create passive income streams. Real deal numbers yall!! And by allowing you to see it, the pressure to stay on top of it will keep me strongly motivated. This is exactly what I need to help me get to where I need to be. I have a few years under my belt with investing already so I have the luxury of being in a decent position already to see the growth happen.
Here’s the who:
I moved from Austin, TX to Indianapolis, IN in the late summer of 2016 with my wife for the main reason of taking advantage of the growing real estate market and take advantage of the lower cost of living here. We have a daughter that was born here in Indy and plan on raising a little family while we are here. I have an associate’s degree in business from a community college which I have done absolutely nothing with. It has never helped me achieve the level of success I have today or to even get a dreaded day job. It has been useless to me although I do not regret getting it as I did learn a little from it from an economic stand point. Everything I have achieved to this day has been strictly through self-education and having a crazy high work ethic which has allowed me to move up the chain at my day job.
Here’s the hope:
I’m hoping my articles and net worth tracking will encourage myself and possibly others to reach financial freedom. I will try to show you all my tips, secrets and share as much knowledge as I can to help you achieve financial freedom with me. I still have plenty to learn and am no expert at anything so I encourage you to help me and contribute also if you can. I surely will do what I can to help you.
