“It’s not often a book is written that could completely change the mindset of a generation… but I believe Scott has written that book.”
Brandon Turner, best-selling author of The Book on Rental Property Investing

Building wealth is always possible, even while working full-time, earning a median income, and paying off debt. By layering philosophy with practical knowledge, Set for Life gives young professionals the action plan they need to conquer their financial goals early in life. With more than 130,000 first-edition copies sold, this anniversary edition gets a refresh with new content, updated numbers, and even more valuable tips and tricks learned over the last five years.

Scott Trench—real estate investor, CEO of BiggerPockets, and co-host of the BiggerPockets Money Podcast—demonstrates how to accumulate a lifetime of wealth over a short period of time. Even starting with zero savings, you can go from a five-figure income to six figures, from an active job to passive income, then finally to the ultimate goal of financial independence.

Set yourself up for life as early as possible, and enjoy life on your terms!
  • Save more income (50+ percent of it) while still having fun
  • Double or triple your income in 3–5 years
  • Track your financial progress in order to achieve the greatest results
  • Build frugal and efficient habits to make the most of your lifestyle
  • Secure “real” assets and avoid “false” ones that destroy wealth
  • Use real estate and stock investing to generate passive income
  • And much more!

Best book to gift

This book perfectly summarizes all of the important concepts of what Bigger Pockets stands for. I have bought a few copies to give to friends so they understand what I mean when I blabber about real estate investing and financial freedom. Scott does an amazing job to explaining the concepts so someone with no knowledge can easily understand. 10/10

The main reason to obtain this book is to help our children and their friends. We find it to be an excellent resource. Thank you so much for the effort that went into such a worthwhile project.

Accurate

Like the book. Possibly a little common sense for anyone with some basic financial knowledge. All and all though a good book that details basic financial knowledge that’s needed.

Thank you Scott! And BP Team!

Wonderfully motivating, well thought, and spelled out slowly enough for a dummy like me! I had no plan before and now I’ve got enough explicit instructions to follow, I feel like I have a real game plan now. Thank you!!
