"You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas."
— Shirley Chisholm.
Womens History Month comes to an end, we want to share a quote from one of our favorite women in history, Shirley Chisholm. Shirley was the first black woman elected to Congress, representing New York’s 12th District. She served for seven terms!! Chisholm was also the first African American to make a bid to become President of the United States in 1972, as a Democratic representative.
She was an advocate for women and minorities, and she, and her all-female staff, made incredible improvements to the lives of many inner-city residents.
Shirley was a trailblazer. She made her own opportunities and didn't let anything stand in her way. Today we celebrate her.

"Women have to harness their power—it’s absolutely true. It’s just learning not to take the first no. And if you can’t go straight ahead, you go around the corner."
Powerful words from a badass woman. Now it's your turn to harness your power, believe in yourself, and take over the world!!
"A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water."
― Eleanor Roosevelt.
March is National Women's History Month and we can't wait to celebrate all month long by sharing quotes from some of our favorite women in history! Starting with Eleanor Roosevelt!
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.

"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.

"The market is more important than the property."
― Ken McElroy.
They say the top three rules of real estate investing are:
Where you buy is more important than what you buy! A mediocre property in a strong market is going to do well. A beautiful property in a bad market is likely to lose money.

“We not only dream, we do. We not only see what has been, we see what can be. We shoot for the moon and then we plant our flag on it. We are bold, fearless, and ambitious.”

“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
