"True wealth gets built when your time gets uncoupled with money."
― Monick Halm.
Time is finite. We only have so much time in our day, our week, our month, and truly, our lives. When it comes to making money, some people have jobs that trade their time for money. This can be really lucrative, especially if you’re a CEO and you get paid a lot of money per hour worked. But I believe that when you’re truly wealthy, your time is completely your own. True wealth means not trading your time for money, it means making money while you do whatever you’d like to do with your time.
Real estate investing gives you the gift of time. It allows you to have enough passive income streams so that you work because you WANT to, not because you HAVE to. That is true wealth, and THAT is the kind of financial freedom I want for each and every one of you.
To be honest, it's a lot easier to attract people to you, than going after people to join your team or business. When you create a platform and put yourself out there it's kinda like you are the honey and the bees come to you. It's a lot easier to do it that way!
Instead of chasing people down. I like to put out as much value as I can and attract people to me! This is how I now get my deals and my money. Investors find me to get on my list, and brokers and other deal sponsors send me opportunities. This is not only easier, but it's also way more fun!
Did you know that the government actually encourages real estate ownership? They do so by offering tax incentives for property owners.
Buying real estate will usually increase your income, but result in lowering your tax burden. Because of depreciation and other tax deductions, it will often appear for tax purposes as though you’re running at a loss.
Even though you’re making income, you have lower taxes and no self-employment tax on rental cash flow. So more money just goes right into your pocket! That’s the beauty of real estate- it allows you to keep more of the money you make, instead of giving it to the government.
If you want to learn more about how you can get started in real estate investing, I have a Free Training I’d love to share with you!
I'm tired of seeing badass, capable goddesses waste their time and energy on things they don't need! Let me break this down for you...
You DON'T need more information!
If all you needed to become a successful real estate investor was google, podcasts, blogs, and youtube videos everyone would be successful investing.
What you DO need is context and education for effective action.
I have developed an EASY-to-follow framework to allow you to know what steps to take and what to set up to successfully invest in a way that works for you. This is included as part of my Wealthy Goddess Program!
You DON'T need supposed gurus who haven't invested in decades to "learn" from.
Real estate investing is not about theory, and it's not stagnant. Certain strategies that worked years ago or even pre-2020 will not work today.
You DO need people you can trust who are successfully investing right now.
That's why I bring in experts every month to speak to and answer questions for our Wealthy Goddess...
Your intuition is the second ingredient of the Goddess secret sauce. It’s particularly strong for most women, and it’s one of our most powerful tools. I call it the GPS for your life.
Have you ever had an intuitive sense about someone or something? Maybe you heard a voice that steered you in the right direction? Or you "just knew" something was the right decision or you knew that it was wrong?
Several years ago, I had an instant liking to a man I met on a blind date. I felt a strong feeling for him even before he spoke. I “just knew” instantly. That man is now my husband.
Intuition is very real and tends to be particularly strong in women. It’s a gift that we have, and it’s extremely valuable for your investing (or anything else in your life).
Your intuition is the culmination of various instantaneous mental processes including automatic processing, subliminal priming, implicit memory, heuristics, right-brain...
Pleasure is the first ingredient of the Goddess Secret Sauce. For women, it is CRUCIAL to follow our pleasure. If you find that you have to “man up” or “muscle through” something, almost certainly you’re coming from a masculine place and are NOT going to be happy with the results.
It’s not to say that you will never need to engage in things you would rather not be doing. If that were the case, I would never commute anywhere, help my daughter with her homework, work on my taxes, etc.
You still need to do the work, but adding pleasure to your life/real estate investing will help make the journey a joy.
There are 3 ways to add pleasure to your real estate investing. I call these the 3 Blissciplines.
It doesn’t have to be real estate related. Maybe it’s getting a manicure or massage. Maybe it’s sitting in the sun and meditating. Maybe it’s watching your favorite movie....
Not all advice is good advice!
Often people are giving you advice based on their own experience (or lack thereof) and/or opinions. Often they’ve never even had experience in the area they’re trying to give you advice about, to their advice will not be that applicable or helpful to you. Or sometimes people are coming from a place of fear, so their well-meaning advice might have the intention of keeping you safe, but will have the effect of keeping you small.
So we encourage you to be selective about the people you take advice from. We recommend taking advice only from people who are already succeeding in the field that you hope to be succeeding in. They are already in the arena, they are doing the work, and they can speak honestly to their experience and how it can help you.
Anyone else has the potential to negatively impact your journey before you even begin, or give you advice that doesn’t apply or will hold you back.
Be selective about the people you let into your...
He taught me that when you approach people with a "relationships for life" philosophy, you are not just trying to get that person to do one deal with you, but you want to build a strong long-lasting relationship with that person, keep working together, and hopefully also become friends.
I have taken that advice to heart, and I always seek to build strong relationships with everyone who can bring value to my life and my business.
So how do you get into these relationships? Here are three steps to follow to establish strong business relationships:
You are probably already connected to tons of great people -- likely far more than you think.
First, pull out a pad of paper and a pen and start to think about potential team...
There are several studies that highlight how women are biologically wired to be around other women.
One of nature’s “feel good” hormones - Oxytocin, the “bonding hormone”, is released in women’s brains in 3 instances: during sex, during breastfeeding, and when women are in groups of other women.
Our brain dumps oxytocin to tell us when something is good for us. It feels good so we will repeat it. Nature has us wired to bond with our lovers, our babies, and other women.
In a UCLA study, scientists found that when stressed, men tended to go off alone or react aggressively (“fight or flight”). Women, on the other hand, tend to their young or gather together to commiserate, cook, and be with others, usually other women (“tend and befriend”).
For women, getting together with other women is one of the healthiest and most effective forms of stress relief. It feels particularly good because of all that oxytocin that is...
Have you noticed that women and men are different? We are different on more than just a chromosomal level. Women are different in how they best work, deal with stress, learn, and invest.
The key to successfully investing as a woman is to incorporate the womanly elements and tap into the Goddess Secret Sauce. The Goddess Secret Sauce invites in magic and miracles.
I believe in the power we have as women. And we can tap into that power to invite in what we desire with the 4 factors of the Goddess Secret Sauce: Pleasure, Intuition, Mindset and Sisterhood.
When people ask how we found our apartment buildings in Albuquerque (and managed a quantum leap in one year of investing), I sometimes give a more complicated answer than what happened. I’ll talk about how we assessed the market and built the team, but that’s not quite an honest answer.
The honest answer is that I set an intention and then was completely guided to it. As if by magic, we met a woman at a networking event...

“Monick Halm opened my eyes to all the different ways of investing in real estate. I am now invested passively in 2 syndications and a performing note, with $2500 a month passive income, and now I don’t have any lazy money sitting in a savings account earning 0.01%.” — Bernardette Williams
