This week I had the chance to chat with Paula Pant about all things rental real estate.

She has traveled to 33 countries and owns seven rental properties. Her belief is that money can fuel your dreams and that it’s about growing your wealth, not pinching pennies. Her blog Afford Anything is part of a larger movement to allow people to ditch the 9-5 lifestyle and master their money to embark on their dreams.
