Ben SmithJoin us at the Tampa REIA Main Meeting on Thursday, September 13th from 5PM-9PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr. West in Tampa, FL where our speaker will be one of our own Tampa REIA Members, Ben Smith, who is an active real estate investor and “virtual” rehabber.

Ben will talk about the API Model of Investing (Active, Passive and Interest) and How to use Real Estate to augment your traditional stock market-based retirement accounts. He will also talk about how to accelerate your financial independence through passive and active real estate investments. Ben says that being well rooted in the principals of real estate investing can help you prosper in good markets or bad and can effectively position you for success no matter what the market brings.

During this session, Ben will dive into the API Model of Investing, what type of investments fall into each category, and how to effectively compound and diversify stocks, mutual funds, real estate rentals, flips, wholesales, 401ks, Self-Directed and ROTH IRAs, and private lending. Don’t miss this educational opportunity from one of our own Tampa REIA Members!
