Publisher's Summary

Create the freedom and lifestyle you've always dreamed about without a job or business.

Let's face it. You want more - more money and freedom, less work, and a higher quality of life. 

What if there were a simple, proven system to get you off the hamster wheel, create cash flow, and generate real wealth with little risk or complexity?

The Lifestyle Investor is your ticket to:

  • End trading time for money so you have more of both
  • Create immediate cash flow while reducing your investment risk
  • Replace your job with passive cash flow streams that multiply your wealth so you can live life on your terms.

Entrepreneur magazine calls Justin Donald the "Warren Buffett of Lifestyle Investing". He's a master of low-risk cash flow investing, specializing in simplifying complex financial strategies, structuring deals, and disciplined investment systems that consistently produce profitable results. His ethos is to "create wealth without creating a job". In the span of 21 months, and before his 40th birthday, Justin's investments drove enough passive income for both him and his wife Jennifer to leave their jobs. 

Following his simple investment system and the 10 Commandments of Lifestyle Investing©, Justin negotiated deals with over 100 companies, multiplied his net worth to over eight figures, and maintained a family-centric lifestyle in less than two years. Just two years later, he doubled his net worth again. 

He now consults and advises entrepreneurs and executives on lifestyle investing. Justin hosts the podcast The Lifestyle Investor®, featuring his lessons and proven investment system that consistently produces repeatable returns.

Waste of time for me, nothing helpful

I got this book because of a recommendation. Unfortunately, I cannot pass along the recommendation and here's why:

1. This book doesn't explain how to do anything. It kind of tells you what to do (e.g. negotiate 20% per year with total return of capital at the end of a year and get some equity thrown in there as well). But that kind of stuff is kind of a no-brainer if we knew how to do it. I want to know how to do those things, not just that I should. I could get past the rest if there was actually some helpful how-tos in here.

2. Between each chapter, someone is interviewing Justin. That's fine except that the interviewer just seems somewhere between awed and full-out worshipping Justin for his sage knowledge that he's not actually passing on. It is super annoying.

3. This whole book feels like a shameless plug for his "Lions" network that cost 50k per year to be a part of. He won't tell you how he does anything, but he is happy to say over and over how his network gets exclusive access to all the stuff he's talking about.

So the moral of the story is this: if you don't have 50k per year to give Justin to be in his special club, don't bother with this book. If you do have 50k per year to give Justin, you probably are doing well enough that you don't really need him or his club. Either way, probably steer clear of this one.

But, to be fair, I didn't listen to the whole thing. I still had about 1.5 hours left. I just couldn't finish it. I would rather invest my time listening to something helpful.

Very general advice. Made to sell his course

I enjoyed the format and he is good at his investing, but this is a marketing book made to promote his podcast, courses and ultimately $250k coaching, that’s why the book is so general with a few sample deals he made. Since he spoke about mobile home parks I wish the book would have been “the nuts and bolts of mobile home park investing”. I would have bought that book.

Mostly A Big Advertisement

there were some good nuggets here and there but mostly fluff. he pushes his coaching classes throughout and is looking for investors. I'm glad I only paid 99 cents. I found out later you can get it for free

Interesting

Interesting read, like the concept of cash flowing investments and over all thought process. Felt like a sales pitch to become a lion.

Great book, the sooner you read it, the better.

I have some experience in living this lifestyle.
To have read this book years ago could have benefited me a great deal.

Just the same, no matter where you’re at in life, whether you’re a seasoned investor or investing is something that seems out of reach for you today, go ahead and start reading this book now.

Do not recommend.

Nothing but a sales pitch & self agrandizement. The story has no real content other than the guy saying how big the deals were the he supposedly landed.

Not authors fault

Can’t blame the author because I understand there is a need for it but the mindset focus was a bit much for me. I’m aware of these hurdles which is the reason for reading the book in the first place.

Didn’t need to spend more than a quarter of the book talking about mindset.

Another huge piece was spent on promoting his mastermind which was also a bit overkill.

Trim some of the fat with these two points alone and you could have saved an hour from the audiobook.

Not blaming the author, he’s trying to put food on the table for his family like everyone else.

All that said, there were a few points I found interesting so it was well worth the $20.

Infomercial

The author is successful and says he wants to share. He isn't speaking to everyone, just those who already have a portfolio or who are very young and have time to build one. The book felt like a lead in to his classes, coaching, and exclusive investment group.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad: Next Level

Great book. Great examples. Instant classic. Painted a picture and gave tools to use. I see why he's supposedly on Buffet's level.

One long sales pitch

Really disappointed. I came in this with an open mind, like I do with everything. Unfortunately it’s part of the new trend of business books to be one long extended sales pitch for the author’s products and services. Nothing necessarily wrong with that, if what you provide in the book is as advertised, but the problem in this case is that it is sold to novices as a golden ticket to a life of freedom, but what is taught is complex deal structuring of the type that is only via available to sophisticated investors with backdoors into off-book deals. Conveniently, one such ticket is by joining the author’s mastermind group. Frustrating.

Just a sales pitch for his course

Doesn’t give much away. Just tries to upsell you to his course, where he will then try to upsell you to his next course etc

Inspired

Packed full of great info, and really highlights the need for financial education as your government and banking system certainly don't want you to know how money works, or can work. highly recommend the podcast also. Hope to meet Justin some day!
