We compare investing in real estate and the stock market. It boils down to the difference between financial freedom vs time freedom. It points to the mindset difference between having your investments, along with tens of thousands of employees working on your behalf, versus you working on your investments. Whether it is stock or real estate, you ultimately are investing in a business. The question becomes: do you want to have tens of thousands of employees working on your behalf, without ever bothering you..., or do you want to manage tens to hundreds of people who are working on your investments with you?
