Myra Oliver has a fascinating story. Not only is she a Kentucky girl that at the age of 22, she wanted true freedom from debt and consumerism, she earned enough passive income as a hair stylist through saving and real estate investing, became a self-made millionaire, and retired in her 30’s. She is back in the marketplace today with another real estate empire and she wrote the book, Down Home Money, to help more people achieve the freedom she has.
