"This book delivers everything you could ask for... from strategy to tactics, but it's so much more than that: It's a deep and thoughtful look at how to achieve your financial and life goals, and most importantly, how to define what 'enough' truly is."
—Brad Barrett, co-founder and host of the ChooseFI Podcast

You don’t need to build a massive real estate empire to achieve financial freedom, and you don’t have to sacrifice what matters to build wealth. Rather than chasing a goalpost that always moves, a small and mighty investor keeps their strategy simple to maximize flexibility and build the life they want.

Chad Carson (aka Coach Carson) intentionally built a small rental property portfolio to give his family full financial independence while requiring less than two hours per week of his time. In this book, he shares practical, step-by-step strategies for real estate investors who want more freedom, not another job. Whether you're new to real estate or hoping to downsize, this practical guide will show you a simpler, safer, and faster path to building cash flow with rental properties—so you can get out of the financial grind and do more of what matters in your life.

  • Determine the property types and locations that make the most money with the least time 
  • Uncover budget-friendly (and time-friendly!) methods to find the best real estate deals 
  • Learn how to build an all-star team that saves you time and money 
  • Discover low-risk financing techniques that avoid big mistakes 
  • Negotiate effectively and authentically to get more offers accepted 
  • Systematize and outsource your rental business to free up time and energy 
  • Learn how to buy properties free and clear of debt for a simple, low-risk portfolio

New Strategy

Coach helped me understand it’s OK if I don’t have 400 doors and a giant company that runs like a machine. After reading this book, I was able to take some pressure off myself and not feel like I have to max everything out.

Theresa Thys
Small and Mighty RE Invesor

I am half way through the book and can easily say how actionable the steps are, easy to read/understand and the sample stories are completely relatable. The author wants others to be successful with 'enough' investing to support financial freedom NOW.
I'm in!! :)

About the Author
Chad Carson (aka Coach Carson) is an author, investor, podcaster, and life-long learner who used real estate investing to reach financial independence in his 30s. With a portfolio of thirty-plus houses and small multifamily properties, Chad's primary real estate strategy is buy-and-hold rentals—but he has also used private lending, wholesaling, fix-and-flips, and creative financing. His current passion is teaching other investors how to build a small and mighty rental property business so they can get out of the financial grind and do more of what matters. Based in Clemson, South Carolina, Chad and his family have also lived abroad in other countries, including 17 months in Cuenca, Ecuador and 12 months in Granada, Spain. When not writing about himself in third person, vying for the silliest dad award, or playing pick-up basketball, Chad enjoys volunteering with a local non-profit he co-founded to create a network of walking and bike paths in his hometown.
