In this episode, Lane Kawaoka explains how important it is to take time for due diligence when looking for investment opportunities. Anyone looking to grow their wealth will benefit from this episode!
Based in Hawaii, Lane Kawaoka still works his day job as an engineer, but he is quickly growing passive income streams via multifamily investing. After graduating from college with a degree in engineering, he got a job in construction management that required a lot of travel. In 2009, Lane bought a primary residence in Seattle—but he was never there. He decided to rent out his A-class property, and the cashflow generated from that enterprise inspired him to purchase more. Lane journals his experiences in the Simple Passive Cashflow podcast.
