Title: Living a Financially Free Life One Bill at a Time with John Rickgarn


Having lost both of his parents to cancer by the time he was 16, John realized after years of working in the corporate world that the plan of working 40 hours for 40 years and saving money in your 401k probably won't work for most....and that is even if you live to age 65. Since 2014, John began his financial journey educating himself on everything from real estate investing to infinite banking. In 2016, he started with a fourplex as his first investment by taking money OUT of his Roth IRA and now has several properties across several states. Since 2020, he has run a financial education website and blog sharing his journey and experiences.
