That's what I thought about too, until I got into it and realized that, depending on your personal preferences, there are many different layers that can insulate you from feeling like you're taking on a 2nd job managing the property or building your portfolio.
To reach your investing goals, people think that they have to give something up. They think it is an "either/or" conversation. "I can make money, but I have to give up my time to get there." What if it turned into a "both/and" conversation where you can have your cake and eat it too. "I can make money, AND keep all my free time."
