If you are stuck working a 9-5, grinding everyday just to keep up with your mortgage payments, you are doing it backwards. I too was once stuck on that giant human hamster wheel and at the rate I was spinning and spending, I'd be stuck on it forever! Thankfully I discovered house hacking and after just a few hacks, money started chasing me instead of the other way around.
I have mentored and helped numerous people in Colorado Springs house hack their way up to financial freedom. If you are interested in learning more, fill out the form and I will get back to you ASAP.
