Retire in 12 Months

Once you leave the herd and become your own expert, life gets significantly better.


By Mike Johnson

Yes, it’s possible. If you’re motivated, it’s probable.

Here’s the entire plan in a nutshell:

You just BUY an already existing passive income stream.


You just BUY an already existing passive income stream.

Can it really be that simple?  Yes.

If it’s that simple, why doesn’t everyone do it? Read my post below titled “Don’t Follow The Herd.”

Right now, there are literally millions of businesses and income-producing properties for sale in just the USA. Of course, there are far more for sale throughout the rest of the world.

Your job is to self-educate yourself on how to find them, how to determine which are worth buying, how to qualify for financing from sellers and banks, how to close the deals, how to operate the business or property and how to find a manager to operate it, so you only have to manage your manager. This will free 95% of your time to spend as you like.

If you do this right, you’ll buy a property that pays all its operational expenses, its mortgage, a manager to run it and all your personal bills too. One large enough deal and you are done working for The Man forever.

But that sounds like too much to learn!

Fine… go back to listening to The Herd and work decades scrimping and saving, hoping that by the time you reach age 65, you have a large enough nest egg to retire.  Ignore the fact that low returns, high inflation and unfair taxes are melting your purchasing power faster than you can save it. Trade your entire life for the flimsy  promise of a possible retirement that only 5% of all people aged 65 ever attain.

Do the Math

If a friend offered you an investment that would return 5, 10, 20 or 40 times what you put in, you’d jump on it, right? So don’t you think it wise to invest less than a year self-educating yourself to immediately retire, so you can avoid the pain of working another 5, 10, 20 or 40 years trying to save for some wispy dream far in the future?  That’s an enormous return on your time investment, Scooter.

Better yet, you’re not investing a full year. Your self-education happens while you’re living the rest of your life normally. Most people can learn enough in 3 to 6 months of leisurely learning. So your return on your time investment is actually closer to 20, 40, 80 or 160 to 1.

But there is one more thing you’re going to have to learn. And it is more difficult than it initially seems.

How are you going to spend all your free time when you no longer have to work a job to earn income?
