Fearless Frankie is a 30-year-old investor (not Benjamin Franklin, unfortunately) working in the finance industry, who strives to reach financial independence before the age of 40, primarily through stocks and real estate investing.
I graduated college in 2009 with a negative net worth of -$30,000. Through working full-time with side hustles and living extremely frugally, I crushed my debt in 2 years (2011) and built a portfolio of stocks. Fast forward to 2019, I can now call myself a real estate investor approaching $500K net worth.
Join me on my journey to complete financial freedom and let me help you take the fear out of investing!
Here are a few financial products that I’ve used.
Roofstock: I bought my first rental property off of Roofstock in December 2018. I’ve provided readers with an in-depth Roofstock review detailing my experience with the company.
Personal Capital: I use Personal Capital to track my income, expenses and net worth. This free tool is invaluable.
CIT Bank Savings Builder: The majority of my wife and I’s savings are in this account, which pays over 2% interest. Boo-ya! This savings account is a no-brainer.
E*Trade: I use E*Trade for several portfolios, including my Roth IRA.
Betterment: I plan on giving Betterment a shot in 2019. This is a Robo-advisor that helps with tax-loss harvesting.
BiggerPockets Pro Membership: I learned about real estate investing mainly through the website BiggerPockets. I became a Pro member to get access to its awesome calculators, including its BRRRR calculator.
Siteground web hosting: This website is hosted by Siteground.
