Just saving money and putting it in your 401k is not enough anymore. There has to be something else. That’s why we have this community. Today, joining us is Clint Harris from Nomad Capital. Clint believes that passive real estate is the key to retirement, as saving alone is no longer sufficient. Clint also stresses the importance of financial independence combined with location and time independence, for a purpose-driven life. The more cash flow you have, the more days off you’re buying, and this hastens retirement or getting out of a W-2 job!

[22:52] “Buying Days Off” Through Syndication Deals
Syndication allows investors, limited partners, and general partners to put their capital to work while others use their time and expertise. Investing in a deal means buying days off from working for the rest of your life and getting closer to achieving financial freedom. This asset class provides real value beyond just a five-year investment, and our goal is to build up assets that we can hold onto with a select group of investors and eventually reclaim our time.
[29:48] Location, Time, and Financial Independence: The Key to a Purpose-Driven Life
Achieving financial independence alone is simply not enough. You need all three elements: location independence, time independence, and financial independence. With these combined, you can lead a purpose-driven life and do whatever your heart desires, whether it’s charity work, attending church, skiing, building, traveling, or raising your kids. However, if you’re only financially independent but stuck in one location, you’ll be forced to spend most of your time in front of a screen every day, which isn’t the nomadic lifestyle you desire. At Nomad, we value this core belief and aim to keep it as a vital part of our culture, just as you have developed an amazing culture with Left Field Investors. Our goal is to always prioritize this value above everything else.
[36:48] Tips for Vetting Sponsors as an LP
Clear communication is essential in meeting your investors’ needs as a real estate investor. Ideally, you should receive monthly updates that include examples of both positive and negative news and how they were presented. It’s important to stay informed at all times. With insider knowledge of the industry, you may
also want to know if the company is vertically integrated, handling everything from property sourcing to capital raising in-house. This information can help you make more informed investment decisions.
