The Millionaire Mailman
Tom Nardone is an example of pursuing the American Dream of financial freedom. At age 19, he started working for the Post Office as a mailman. It didn’t take him long to realize that the security entrapment of “good job” is not a lot different from a 30 year jail sentence. “You feel trapped, and your income is limited.” Realizing his “good government job” was not going to make his dreams of being financially free come true, Tom took some real estate investing courses and bought his first house in 1983 at just 23 years old. Shortly thereafter he recognized a valuable asset available to him that his real estate investor competition did not have. Walking around on mail runs gave him the advantage of finding prime real estate opportunities very quickly.
Tom also pays it forward by teaching others how to achieve the same success. The students hes best paired with are the blue collar guys who wants to make a major change in their life, because they feel trapped in their job, stuck in a rut, and can’t seem to make a change. Being a blue collar worker himself for 16 years at the Post Office, Tom can best relate to students feeling this way.
