Hey look, JL Collins, author of The Simple Path To Wealth, is out with a new book:
How I Lost Money In Real Estate Before It Was Fashionable is JL’s true story of a disastrous real estate transaction. Short of being electrocuted, everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. And then some.
The story starts with JL trying to decide whether he should buy a Porsche or a condo in Chicago. He should have went with the Porsche. I won’t spoil the rest, but I will say that this tale would have made great reality TV.
Perhaps JL’s tale of real estate woe had a benefit too though? If this deal wasn’t such a shitshow, perhaps JL wouldn’t have embraced index funds and we wouldn’t have The Simple Path To Wealth? I have no idea.
I do know that you should give the book a read. It’s a fun read and the artwork is well done.
