The Master Passive Income business owner, Dustin Heiner, joins the P&B family today. Dustin is a, podcaster, author, real-estate investing coach and a wildly successful real estate investor. Dustin’s journey into real estate began after a lay off from a “secure” corporate office job. At that point he realized that he would never get wealthy working for someone else. He decided he needed to start working toward becoming his own boss.
A weekend real estate seminar on how to buy rental properties inspired Dustin to make his first real estate investment. The key to this seminar was investing for passive income versus investing and hoping for appreciation. The rest is history! Years later, Dustin and his family live off of the passive income generated by his properties while they travel the world.
