I lived in Haiti for nearly 12 years as founder/ director of Child Hope International where we operate a boys home, girls home, feeding program, med clinic, school and vocational training program/micro business incubator. I returned to the states in 2015 to focus on family and continue real estate investing. I am married, have 7 kids and 4 grandchildren.
When I returned to the states I realized how difficult it was get started at a later age. After a number of attempts to generate income, I found real estate investing was, by far, the best option for me -- especially at my age.
I started a web site, blog, newsletter and podcast called the Old Dawg's REI Network to provide education and information for those of us in the 50 plus age range that are interested in real estate investing. Our needs and situations are different that younger people who can develop their real estate business based on long-term strategies.
