1. Adventures in Mobile Homes ($120K/year)

Rachel Hernandez, founder of Adventures in Mobile Homes, came up with the idea for her business after becoming burnt-out as a landlord and deciding to sell her real estate portfolio. She read a book on mobile home investing and was drawn to the idea of being the bank rather than a landlord. Her first sale was a 2 bedroom, 1 bath mobile home that she bought for $3,600 and sold for $10,000, receiving her initial investment back within the first year. Since then, Rachel has built a successful business with a steady stream of passive income and plans to expand by buying land and moving mobile homes onto it.
