Real estate is one of many vehicles that allow people to leave an inheritance for their loved ones and create generational wealth. One couple made their dream come true by acquiring a massive 53-acre ranch to pass down to their children and grandchildren.
Rachel Rodgers, a successful business coach and entrepreneur, took to social media to make a special announcement about her and her husband’s recent purchase. For Rodgers, this was a process ten years in the making and they were thrilled to finally reap the benefits of their hard-earned work.
“We started our business on September 1, 2010. Many have witnessed our hustle -me in the front, my husband as an epic, ever-present support in the back,” Rodgers said in an interview with Because of Them We Can. “As the culmination and in celebration of the last decade of our hard work, we have purchased this 53-acre ranch.”

This week my husband and I purchased a ranch on 53-acres. Two poor Black kids from Brooklyn and Queens — this shouldn’t be our story but it is. My tenth business anniversary is coming up in two weeks. I wish I could go back to some of my hardest early days and tell myself, “Sis, it’s all going to work out fine.” I wish I could go back to when I stayed up all night to create my first landing page for my very first digital product. I had no idea that night that I was unlocking what would become the key to my becoming a millionaire. I wish I could go back to those times (there were multiple) when I had just enough money to make payroll for my team but not enough for myself. I’d have to take my big bottle of change from under my desk to the Coinstar machine at the supermarket in order to buy groceries for my family. After the closing this week, my husband and I walked around the property, passing the stables and the guest cottage. Passing the open meadows and the little river. It felt surreal. My first thought was, “Wow. We really did that.” My second thought was, “I am my ancestor’s wildest dreams.” Here’s what I want you to know: your dreams are within reach. They are possible. They are unfolding even now. Even when you think it’s all over. Stay in the game. And get you a squad who will support you every step of the way. This 53-acre ranch was made possible by the dream I had 10 years ago to build my own business. Everything I’ve learned along the way, and how to do it, is distilled into what I teach in The Club. I want to see you celebrate your ten-year business anniversary with some incredible real estate, too. Actually, why wait ten years? Let’s make it five or even two years — why not? xo, R
