From: Marina . Hi all, Hands up to those of you who are addicted to property. I know I am, and so is my husband. We started our journey 2 and a half years ago, and wow what are journey. We cannot stop. We thought we had purchased our last property, due to the fact that we were close to a million in debt but nope, we had to do it again. We are addicted!!!!!!!!!! A couple of months ago we had a bit of fear in us about purchasing another property, but after reading some more inspirational books, and attending the STeve Navra seminar (Thanks so much for the motivation and inspiration) we decided YES WE CAN DO IT AGAIN. When you can see the growth working, and the compound effect working, and you find you have the serviceability and the finance structure is correct its hard to stop. Every waking moment is spent learning, reading, digesting and planning. Don't get me wrong, we do have a life outside property, but it has become a hobby that has so motivated us, inspired us and made us truly happier within ourselves. It is what drives us, knowing that in the not too distant future we will truly be out of the rat race. We got out the $15 calculator just the other night and played with the figures of what we have and what we are planning, and the future capital growth, and I tell you what the figures looked scary. It was hard to believe that we achieved so much in such little time, and when I saw the compounding effect on the calculator it was unbelievable seeing the 7 digits. We have totally changed our lives around. I mean we are not truly free as such just yet but on the way. Remember it is not how much you earn, but how you invest your money. I don't post as much as I used to, but I just want to say thankyou to this forum for all the wonderful information it has given me over the last 2 and a half years. I have learnt so much from all the wonderful and helpful people on this forum, especially Rolf, Dale, TW. Every post has been a help. Thankyou to Jan and Ian for such a wonderful site. Marina.
