Being a coal miner has to be one of the toughest professions in America. Seth Bradley watched first hand as his father worked the coal mines in West Virginia and quickly realized he was going to need a more professional job, indoors with lights and air conditioning. He figured being a doctor or lawyer are the two most revered careers so he ultimately chose law.

He has invested in multifamily syndications to generate passive income and take advantage of the favorable tax perks. He hosts the Passive Income Attorney Podcast and shares his journey with others.
