I don't know where you get this whole money tree thing from the full time work from nothing is set in stone and it's taken well over 15 years to get where I'm and I'm not even close to what I want to achieve. But what I can say is that it's been done (like to think it has), by making the right investments at the time despite me thinking otherwise and listening to people, who have been there before and seen the mistakes made.

A perfect example is when I was looking into getting a tilty, I was told that a PUP would be the right way to go, don't need to change anything use all the stuff I had, no dramas, sounded good to me, however, Pat from steelwrist, and Eddie, educated me, explained the reasons and showed me the big picture. that it would simply be a case of you'll end up having to swap the unit when the penny drops and you'll be out of pocket, and looking back, it was the best advice given to me, because I'd of been a bit annoyed that after investing money in a unit, I'd have to be swapping everything, when I could of done it right in the first place.
