The Fettke's Real Wealth Story, from Kathy's Perspective

I know what it’s like to have a financial plan that doesn’t makes sense. I know what it’s like to lose everything you’ve worked so hard to build. I know what it’s like to miss out on important family moments because work doesn’t allow it. How do I know? 13 years ago, my husband Rich was diagnosed with melanoma and told by the doctor that he had 6 months to live. While I refused to believe it, I was determined to take over the finances so that he could get better. I was the host of a radio show at the time, and immediately shifted the focus to wealth building. I interviewed self-made millionaires each week to learn their secrets, and discovered quickly why real estate was their #1 passive investment of choice – for the tax benefits, asset protection, leverage and overall wealth creation. (This show is a podcast on iTunes – just search Real Wealth Show with Kathy Fettke.)

Rich and I learned about the power of leverage, so we refinanced our home and bought 14 income properties. We soon discovered the thrill of owning hard assets that don’t disappear overnight, that can be insured and protected, that are paid off by someone else, and that provide on-going cash flow for life.

The Real Wealth Show listenership grew rapidly, and we soon realized we were not the only people desperate for this information. That inspired us to create a safe place for people to learn with out the pressure of buying outdated bootcamps and expensive “guru” programs, so we founded RealWealth Network. We have grown to 53,000 members, and continue to share the secrets of real savvy real estate investors. Membership is free.

We now know what it’s like to be able to take a month off and travel to Europe with the family, to go surfing whenever the waves are good, to attend our kid’s most important events, and to give to the charities we support.

We love to inspire and teach others how they can acquire cash machines producing double digit returns that will pay them for the rest of their lives. And anyone can do it! You can use IRA’s, 401ks, bank money, private money, 1031 exchanges… There are unlimited ways to reach your goals. The key is getting the right education.

Oh, and by the way, the doctor was wrong. Rich is as healthy as ever, and thoroughly enjoying Real Wealth.
