Which Nationalities Work the Most Hours

As real estate investors, we feel like we put in a lot of hours. In fact, many of us are quite comfortable saying, “Set your own hours – HA! I work all the time!”

And, we hire a lot of workers for everything from office help to help with our rehabs and property buying and selling. How many hours do those people work? Naturally, no one will put in the hours for your business like you do, however…
