Recommended Tools

Over the past year, I have discovered several tools and products that have helped me tremendously on my path to financial freedom. Without these four tools below getting to where I am today would have taken a lot longer!

I am recommending these products because I have used them personally and they have been extremely valuable in fast-tracking my financial growth. I’m sure they will do the same for you!

Best,
Marvin


Credible

Credible is an online marketplace that provides borrowers with competitive, personalized loan offers from multiple, vetted lenders in real time.

Why I recommend Credible:
Debt is not necessarily bad. With interest rates at all time lows you can actually make money work even harder for you. Over the past couple years, I have taken out some low-interest loans to finance my real estate investments.

But finding and applying for loans and mortgages is always such as hassle. Credible has made this process simple and almost enjoyable for me (and provided some of the lowest interest rates on the market).


Personal Capital

Get a real-time view and easily track and manage your entire financial life with Personal Capital’s award-winning Dashboard.

Why I recommend Personal Capital:
The best part about Personal Capital is undoubtedly their retirement planner. With this tool I can check my progress towards financial freedom and hold myself accountable.

Staying the course and putting in the work month after month and year after year is so crucial on the path to financial freedom. And Personal Capital makes staying on track so much simpler!


M1 Finance

Invest, borrow, and spend, all in one place. You set your strategy, M1 Finance automates it. For free.

Why I recommend M1 Finance:
I love how easy it is to invest automatically and maintain my portfolio with M1 Finance. I can set up automatic transfer to my account and rebalance my portfolio with one click.

If I had to point to tool that has made the biggest positive impact on my investment life, M1 Finance would be it!


Fundrise

Simple, low-cost, and powerful real estate investing.

Why I recommend Fundrise:
I always wanted to invest in real assets (not REITs) but was hesitant about owning rentals because of all the horror stories I had heard about property management.

When I found Fundrise I knew immediately that I had found my solution: direct real estate investments without the property management. Win-win!
