How To Make Simple Passive Cash Flow with Lane Kawaoki

Today I had the pleasure of speaking with the founder of Simple Passive Cashflow, Lane Kawaoki. Lane originally studied to become an engineer that worked in a corporate setting straight out of college. Like most of his friends, he saved up some money and bought a house. After renting some rooms, he realized he was onto something and that’s how he got into real estate investing. Now, Lane teaches people how to make simple passive cash flow through real estate and grow their net worth.

Let’s dive into Lane’s story of how sometimes simpler is better.
