In my latest podcast interview, I’m speaking with David Pere. David is the founder of “From Military to Millionaire”, where his mission is to teach service members, veterans, and their families how to build wealth through real estate investing—so they can retire early and enjoy the freedoms they fought for!

During his first two enlistments, David realized he was wasting away his money on material possessions instead of investing it. So, in 2015, he decided to buy a duplex. He lived in one side, and rented the other side out to cover the mortgage payment. That decision changed his life forever!

While stationed in Hawaii, David went on to buy a 10-unit apartment in Missouri and was able to use bank-financing, seller-financing, and a home equity line of credit to purchase the property with less than 5% down—and great terms!

In today’s conversation, David and I chat about how he achieved financial freedom in 2021, and transitioned from active duty into the Marine Corps Reserve in order to devote his time to showing other service members and veterans how to achieve the same!

For current or former military, or those who are looking to invest and are starting from nothing, you’ll absolutely love this interview with David Pere!
