We are back with the second half of my interview with Christopher Sands. (If you haven’t heard the first half of the interview, be sure to listen to episode 426 first.) Today we’ll jump into what Chris considers to be the most underutilized business metric, why it’s so important to have an understanding of taxes—even if it’s only from a high level—and more.
Listen in to hear about how the traditional financial model just doesn’t work and how Chris is building his own freedom plan B through real estate. He shares his first property investments and emphasizes the importance of paying down debt and creating cash flow as quickly as possible. This conversation is one that you don’t want to miss if you’re looking for the best way to find opportunity and growth while navigating a tricky marketplace.
