"Everything I want is on the other side of my fear."
― Monick Halm.
When I was in middle school, I heard this quote from FDR that changed my life: “The only thing to fear is fear itself.”
I really took that to heart and decided to do things that scared me as often as I could (other than things that would kill me, of course). I didn’t want my fear to determine what I could and could not do.
So I developed a practice of really exercising my fear and courage muscles. Instead of walking away from things that scared me, I dove in.
In that journey, I've found that everything I want is on the other side of my fear. Some things scare me all the time, but I'm so comfortable with that feeling now, because of how often I exercise my courage muscles, that I'm like- "bring it!"
Launching a virtual event scared me, but I did it anyway. Starting an Investor Club scared me, but I did it anyway. Being interviewed on tv and big podcasts scares me, but I do it anyway. I have...
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...
Ready for me to blow your mind? All 3 of these reasons are based on myths and misconceptions.
Those excuses are just excuses! They are not necessarily true.
- You don’t need a ton of money to invest in real estate (in fact, there are ways to get started investing with as little as $0!)
- You don’t need to have a ton of time to invest in real estate (in fact, some investments are completely passive!)
- You definitely don’t have to deal with tenants, toilets or termites in order to invest (in fact, many investments never require you to touch the 3 T’s!)
And yet, women use these three excuses ALL the time and prevent themselves from achieving the financial freedom they desire. When I hear one of these excuses I know that the woman saying it just doesn’t know enough about real estate investing and all the numerous ways that she can get involved. So I created a 40-page guide titled: Investing in Real Estate from $1 to $1 Million to help educate women on 12...
I am tired of seeing a room full of wealthy investors where so very few are women. And we know you are tired of this as well.
It's SOOO possible, and I'm tired of the excuses we make that keep us from getting in the game. Some of it is due to fear. Much of it is due to myths and misinformation, and not knowing what's possible!
That's why I've written this 40-page guide and am giving it away for free right now - to show you how you can start to invest in real estate even if you have little to no money, little to no time, and don't want to ever deal with tenants.
In my new guide, I've shared 12 strategies:
-3 that are sweat equity strategies (for the goddess who is willing to roll up her sleeves, but wants to invest little to none of her own money).
-3 are passive investing strategies (for the goddess who wants her money working for her and doesn't want to spend time finding or managing properties)
-3 are buy-and-hold strategies (this is for the goddess who wants to invest in a more...
