I've been reading some of the comments made on Social Media & News outlets regarding the 13 properties @Tony Fleming has accumulated. For a deeper look at some of the comments: Tony-Fleming-28-purchased-13-properties I think it's quite sad that society looks at property investment in this light. I think this is an amazing achievement and should be celebrated and congratulated... I'd be interested to hear if anyone else on this forum have felt this kind of public backlash regarding their investment journey. Do majority of people look at property investing, using leveraging and generating passive income as "parasites"? or is it just pure jealousy that a kid half their age have achieved more than they ever could? Do you believe that the comments they're making have any merit? ie "Wait till the interest rates increase, he'll be bankrupt!", "He doesn't own those properties, the banks do!". Love to hear some thoughts from you all!
