I was playing cashflow 101 e-game and to my surprised, I was out of the rat race in just 1 hr.
It was my 'lucky' day I guess , but I bet in real life, I wouldn't be able to achieve that!
All I did was:
1. Got cheap stock prices and sold them at the highest peak
2. Bought a duplex and some small 3BR/2BA apartment
and voila.. positive cash flow, and I achieved my dream - some theatre performance/artsy fartsy stuff (only $125k) in just a dice roll.
