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...
Depending on your priorities, wealth can mean something different to each of us. However, when it comes to finances, wealth, for me, has only one definition, and it's not necessarily about having tons of money, but about having financial security and comfort.
In 2008 I was let go from my fancy lawyer job, I had a newborn AND the economy tanked. My husband, who was now the sole breadwinner, experienced hardship as his graphic design business income decreased by 90%.
I remember feeling so afraid and uneasy during that time of my life. We'd just had a new baby, I didn't have a job, and the economy was in shambles. Luckily, the two rental properties we had invested in a few years back were still providing us financial income, and during that year of hardship, they were truly what kept our roof over our head.
This made me realize the importance of finding real wealth- that doesn’t mean being so rich that you are unaffected by what’s going on in the world. It means...

As women, we use to think that we can do it all, that we need to have everything perfect, and that's ok. Those are qualities of our personality that help us be one step ahead of life’s everyday challenges. But, when it comes to investing, some of the things that most of the time work in our favor, may become mistakes that can cost us valuable time and money.
Here you have a list of the most common mistakes women make in real estate investment:
One of the biggest mistakes we see women make in real estate investing (before they even begin) is waiting for the “perfect” time to begin. This is a HUGE mistake because as badass women who juggle 100 things at once. there will never be a perfect time. There will never be a perfect property, a perfect bank account balance, a perfect sign from the universe... and you waiting is only you getting in the way of your own...
