If you’re considering how to achieve the path of financial freedom, it’s likely you’ve come across the option to invest in real estate. Real estate is one of the most historic ways of building wealth and stabilizing a consistent leveraged income.
In contrast to leveraged income, most people spend their working lives waking up and going to a 9-5 where they earn active incomes. Unfortunately, with active income, there’s usually an expiration date. There’s a last paycheck: a point where most people lose motivation or physical ability to accomplish the tasks in their jobs.
Typically, you’re most likely to have the highest energy, health, and ability in the workforce while you’re young. As you get older and older, you age, it’s harder to adapt to the changing processes, procedures, requirements, and technology, and it becomes time for retirement (or something else).
But, what do you do after your last paycheck? Do you stress about how to survive off of government benefits, or do you cash your last check in excitement knowing you’ve built streams of income that provide your needs and wants sufficiently?
People who have investments set up (like real estate) can breath easy knowing they’ll have an income that will provide a comfortable living for them. It can be confusing to set up the real estate the right way, which is why people like Del Walmsley have created programs to help.
Del Walmsley is the founder of Lifestyles Unlimited Inc., a company whose mission is to “to teach their members how to supplement or replace their earned income with passive income, thereby reducing their dependence on jobs, pensions, social security, and savings programs like IRAs and 401(k)s.”
Lifestyles executes their mission by having several brick and mortar locations throughout Texas where real estate investors go for mentorship on real estate investing, they get discounts at select vendors, and they can network and build a community with other like-minded people.

Del Walmsley Success Quotes
“I don’t like motivation. Motivation wears off.”
“I think that success is about integrity to yourself and to the people around you”
“Don’t, lie, cheat, and steal.”
“Figure out what you want to be. Don’t be what your parents want you to accomplish or what your wife wants you to be.”
“Have integrity with other people.”
“Inspiration is something out in front of you that you want so bad that you’ll do anything to get there.”
“The inspiration to know that there’s some place down the line you want to be, and you don’t want to be here–that will get you wherever you want to be.”
