On today’s show we’re speaking with engineer, Sunny Burns. Sunny makes grenades for the DOD for fun; yep, the Department of Defense, while also selling pacifiers online. Sunny paid for his tuition in college by selling 19 cars. Sunny is a real estate investor who got a start house-hacking a fourplex. He is currently getting paid to live for free. This is one of my favorite subjects to educate others on, so when I found out what Sunny did and how beastly of a deal he got, I knew I had to have him on the show.


Sunny is the definition of an entrepreneur and has multiple streams of passive income. At 26 years old, Sunny is on the fast track to financial freedom all while maintaining a full-time engineering job at the DOD. I am sure you will get tons of value of this show, because I know I did, and you will like the little bit about travel hacking midway through the show.
