Justin Donald is a master of low-risk cash flow investing whose strategies and principles for investing to earn passive income have helped thousands of people "create wealth without creating a job." In the span of 21 months, and before his 37th birthday, Justin’s investments drove enough passive income for both he and his wife Jennifer to leave their jobs. Following his simple investment system and 10 Commandments of Lifestyle Investing, Justin negotiated deals with over 100 companies, multiplied his net worth to over eight figures, and maintained a family-centric lifestyle in less than 2 years.

 

In this episode, Nick and Justin talk about Justin's principles and strategies for investing to earn passive income. As a former high frequency trader, Nick has some thoughts on this! But while Nick created algorithms behind a computer screen, Justin sees investing very differently. To Justin, it's not just an opportunity to put more money in the bank, it's an opportunity to impact the bigger picture of someone's life.
