Do you and your partner want to invest in real estate together? If you want to do it successfully, there are 4 points you want to make sure to consider.
My husband Peter and I help couples increase their income and their intimacy through real estate investing.
Some people prefer to keep their work and personal lives separate. Others relish the opportunity to share their passions and careers with their significant others. Real estate investing is ideal for designing a life that's good for family and business because of the flexibility and freedom to carve your own path.
If you like the idea of working with your spouse but are worried about the consequences, here's how to make sure your real estate investing business and your relationship stay on track.
Here's a rundown of the 4 things you'll have to consider before investing as a couple rather than alone.
1. You have to make sure that you’re on the same page with your partner - make sure you...
Women are 50% of the population, but less than 30% of real estate investors are women. Why is that?
One reason is that many women don't even see it as a possibility for themselves. Another big reason is fear.
Women are scared to get involved in real estate investing because: they don't know enough about it; they don't think they have sufficient resources; they don't know who they can trust; and/or they don't have the right guidance or mentorship to begin powerfully.
That's why I'm so passionate about the REI Goddesses community.
Alice went on to get a scholarship to college and then she got heavily involved in the Civil Rights Movement. She wrote many short stories, poems, and novels. Her novel, "The Color Purple" won a Pulitzer Prize, was later adopted into a movie by Steven Spielberg, and eventually turned into a musical produced by the queen herself, Oprah.
I successfully invest in real estate with my husband, Peter, and we get asked all the time: how do we do it? How do we work together, raise a family, and stay passionate?
It's not luck. Well, there is some luck and a whole lot of grace. We have been intentional though! So here are four tips we credit for our relationship and business success. (And yes, we know the last one may sound crazy to some, but even Napoleon Hill talks about this in Think and Grow Rich.)

Did you know that Eleanor not only helped draft the universal declaration of human rights, but she also received over 35 honorary degrees?? (FDR only received 31 ) She was an incredible woman in our nation's history, and one we respect very much.

Today, I'm sharing my interview with Patricia Cooper - our Wealthy Goddess of the Month!
Here’s a recap of what we talked about:
We recently celebrated Labor Day. Do you know why we celebrate Labor Day in the United States?
Because work - your work, my work, and the work of millions of Americans at all points of our incredibly diverse economy - is essential. In the late 19th century, as the Industrial Revolution fundamentally changed what work looked like and how people lived, workers began to insist that their needs and efforts be recognized and valued.
It was a process - of protests, organizing, educating, legislating, and then doing so again.
There have been incredible gains made by workers in this country and around the world, but things are not equal between men and women. The new August 2021 Jobs Report that just came out underscores the differences.
I made a quick video talking about it (one big difference is that almost 90% of new job gains went to men!), what that says about women and the workforce, and the solution for equalizing things and helping women build the wealth gap.
You learn a lot more from your failures than your successes. So don't be afraid to fail! Failure provides the crucial feedback you need for success. So fail fast, fail often and fail forward! That's one of the best ways to learn what you need to know in order to achieve the dreams you're chasing.
It's September. The sun is getting a little softer. There is a cool breeze every now and then. My daughter has gone back to school. This is the time of school supplies, paper-wrapped textbooks, and seeing that first school bus of the year.
The return of that learning rhythm is as much a part of Fall as the turning leaves and pumpkin spice lattes.
You and I may be done with the first days of class, but there is still so much to learn. Maybe you’re ready to work towards a life with more flexibility, more community, more impact, and the financial freedom that you’ve dreamt of (but just aren't sure of where to start). If the turning season has you inspired to learn, I want to invite you to a special training that is back by popular demand (and it's totally FREE!):
