When you start understanding finance and getting creative with it, you can generate wealth. Here is a story about someone who started out as a PTA, and became a real estate investor.
Nic King, graduated from college, and was accepted into PTA school 3 days before classes start. He started out in outpatient orthopedics. When he received his first paycheck, he was shocked in how little ended up in his bank account. It was a huge learning experience about taxes. Then in 2021, he's transferred into a director of clinical education.
Prior to academics, he was able to purchase multiple properties in a short amount of time, and now has passive income.
