Baby Hold Onto Me… Whatever Will Be Will Be… Ready or not, it’s expected that within the next 25 years we will see one of the greatest wealth transfers of all time. Estimates of well over $60 TRILLION (yes, that’s a “T”) from Baby Boomers to their heirs or charities are expected. Naturally, the government will also get its cut.

This isn’t some trendy rehashing of “Roman Holiday.” It’s all about the Euro, which is now trading on par with the U.S. dollar for the first time since 2002.

Our goal is to provide you the knowledge you need to approach real estate financing unafraid.
One of the core ideas when we created the Lee Arnold System was that success in real estate investing does not come from one source: not from one source of income, not from one type of property, and not from one strategy of investing. Having multiple streams of income is an imperative in the creation of real wealth in real estate investing.
The next disrupter of the way things are done in real estate is now here. Lee Arnold System acquired a new technology called SendFuse, which, by simply texting on your mobile phone, you can research properties, send letters, make phone calls, and submit offers.
The overarching philosophy of success at Cogo Capital and the Lee Arnold System of Real Estate Investing is the Circle of Wealth.

Journeying on the path of the Circle of Wealth requires a vital element, the movement and momentum created by interdependence with other people.
