Calhoun Times - - BUSINESS NEWS -

While we’ve been here, I’ve been think­ing about va­ca­tion pay. You see in my adult life, I have never worked any­where that of­fered paid time off. That’s mainly be­cause I’ve been work­ing for my­self since col­lege.

But as I was sit­ting by the waves think­ing about what to write, it dawned on me I do have paid time off. It comes from our rental in­come. You hear in­vestors talk about how great mail­box money is. They’re re­fer­ring to the rent checks they get mailed each month. But how good is a rent check sit­ting in your mail­box in Ge­or­gia if you are by the beach in Florida?

Be­cause of this is­sue, we de­cided to move away from pa­per checks and start draft­ing rents from our ten­ants via ACH. This means that no mat­ter where we are, with a few clicks of a but­ton our rents will be moved di­rectly into our ac­count.

In­stead of mail­box money, since it’s all dig­i­tal, I’ve been calling it in­box money. And hav­ing it will give you paid time off no mat­ter where you are.
