About the Book

In school, most of us learn core subjects, such as math, writing, spelling, reading, science, social studies, and the list goes on. But financial literacy? Not so much. Erica M. Odom, like many, found herself living paycheck to paycheck without any savings to show for it. Whether she was working in retail, at a restaurant, or at the local hospital, as soon as she brought money home, she’d spend it. Something needed to change. Today, the author is a successful real estate investor and a shining example that it’s never too late to absolutely crush it. She has assets, options, time, wealth, passive income, and multiple streams of income – and she’s just getting started. Find out how you, too, can go from struggling to make ends meet to having the money to do what you want. It starts by learning all the things they didn’t teach you at school, so you can start your Journey to Success.

About the Author

Are You Ready For This JOURNEY? Erica grew up in a small duplex home on the north side of Milwaukee, WI. Throughout Erica’s childhood and early adult life, she was like most of the people around her, and that was she didn’t know what it actually meant to be financially literate. Erica realized quickly as an adult that she lacked financial literacy skills. Although she began working when she was 14 years old she never knew anything about budgeting, smart spending habits, or how to even save money. Like most, she had no savings, no investments, and no sense of a budget. From there on, she continued to work in several industries from retail, restaurants, and even at the local hospital. Erica was bringing in income with her paychecks but was spending the money just as quickly as it came in. She bought motorcycles, clothes, shoes, rims for her car, junk food and fast food, you name it she was spending away! Today Erica is an example of it’s never too late for anyone and it’s never too late to learn. Erica is a successful real estate investor, with her own company, Odom Investments & Property Management that she built and founded in 2018. In her professional career she is a social worker. Erica is on her wealth building JOURNEY! It is never too late for success! We go through ups and downs, and unfair things and situations in life, but remember, it's never too late. Success is not being the fanciest person in the room, but yet the person who has assets, options, time, wealth, passive income and multiple streams of income. Most importantly, success is when you are happy with your results, not when someone else is. “A winner is a dreamer that never gives up” -Nelson Mandela
