The Simple Yet Profound Thing I Forgot to Tell You

 

I recently presented my online course, How to Get Started in Real Estate Investing Like a Goddess.

In this webinar I talk about what you need to do to get started in Real Estate.  If I do say so myself, it’s very thorough.  There was something simple and profound that I left out though.

In the webinar I say that you have to start with desire, but that’s not really the starting point.

Even before desire you have to start with belief.

You need a:

• Belief that you can do this.
• Belief that you are worthy of this.
• Belief that you’re not being “too big for your britches.”
• Belief that you’re not asking for the impossible.
• Belief that you are smart enough.
• Belief that you are capable enough.
• Belief that you deserve this.
• Belief that it will work out even better than you can imagine.
• Belief that you’re ready, and if you don’t have what you need yet, you’re in the perfect place to get it.

These beliefs in yourself, your abilities, and this benevolent universe are prerequisites to starting and succeeding.

I believe all of the above for you.  I KNOW all of the above is true for you.

I know all this is true for you because you are here.

Something guided you to this group and to this message. Trust that something.

Then take the next step.

 

Believing in you!

The Power of Sisterhood

“when you meet that person. a person. one of your soulmates. let the connection. relationship be what it is. it may be five mins. five hours. five days. five months. five years. a lifetime. let it manifest itself, the way it is meant to. it has an organic destiny. this way if it stays or if it leaves, you will be softer from having been loved this authentically. souls come into, return, open, and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons, let them be who and what they are meant.”

-Nayyirah Waheed


Monick and I are busy creating our first membership site Wealth Builders, but I wanted to send you this quick poem for inspiration because you Sis, are always on my mind.

Collaborating with Monick I realize how amazing it is to work with a partner and more specifically a partner who is a goddess. She and I are on the phone so much that I’m sure we’ve each made an unknown trip to the bathroom with one another.

It’s like being a teenager again except instead of talking about crushes or the latest songs (although we do talk about those things) We are talking about how we can hold space for our members to do the deals we KNOW they have in them and create passive income that will sustain them day after day, month after month, year after year. I can’t wait to show you what we’ve created for you!

Xoxo,

The Top 3 Tools I Use Everyday In My Real Estate Business

 

Last Friday I was interviewed for a real estate podcast (Reed Goossen’s “An Aussie’s Guide to U.S. Real Estate”) and was asked…

“What is the one tool you MOST rely on in your real estate business?”
I shared three with him and I thought maybe you’d like to know what they are.

There are three tools that I’m obsessed about because they make what I do SO MUCH EASIER!

Because I live in Los Angeles, am purchasing properties in Albuquerque, have a business partner in Dallas, and have investors in 11 different states, I need tools that facilitate the non-local nature of my real estate syndication business.

I also need these same tools for Real Estate Investor Goddesses because Denise lives in New Orleans, and we have goddesses in this community from all over the U.S., Canada and the UK.

I need tools that facilitate the coordination of information over distance and different time zones.

The tools that make everything I do possible are:

1. Google Docs.

Google Docs is awesome for so many reasons.
Easy to Collaborate – you can work on a document simultaneously with someone from the web.  When you make a change it’s instantaneously synced with the cloud.  Denise and I use this CONSTANTLY.  It’s awesome!
Google Docs has all kinds of docs you could need – word processing docs, presentations, surveys, spreadsheets
Works from the web, so you can access these documents from anywhere.  I even have an app that allows me to do Google Docs on my iPhone or iPad.  It also works with Android.
And the price is right – it’s free!

2. Drop Box

Syndications require a LOT of paperwork.  We have to send a couple hundred pages of legal work to each investor, who must fill out, sign and return to us.  We also have correspondence documents/contracts with sellers, brokers, our attorneys, insurance companies, lenders, insurers, contractors, etc.

Dropbox is great because it allows us to easily organize, store, and share documents.

It’s very easy to share documents.  We send out a link with a folder to our investors with all the documents they need to review and sign.  We can also easily share important documents with our partner in Dallas.  When he receives documents he files them in the appropriate place in dropbox and vice versa.  Then we always have easy access.

Dropbox is also great because you can easily access it from the web, a mobile device, or any other computer linked to your account. This is Dropbox’s killer feature, and no one does it better.

Dropbox is a lifesaver!

3. Project Management Tools: Trello/MeisterTask

The last tool(s) I use daily are project management tools.  For the real estate syndications we use MeisterTask.  For Real Estate Investor Goddesses I use Trello.

Both of these project management systems are web-based and allow for easy assignment of tasks and coordination.

For both you can:
• Create a checklist
• Add an attachment
• Add a comment
• Read the string of comments related to that task
• Set due dates
• Complete the task


Those are my 3 MUST-USE tools, and though they’re not real estate specific, they allow me to easily do all that I have to do from where ever I am in the world.

What are the tools that you can’t live without? Let us know in the comments below or on the Facebook page.

What the World Needs Now is…

_
Perhaps the past few months have left you feeling beat up and traumatized?

I know the talk of sexual assaults, bullying, police brutality, #blacklives, #bluelives, #womenslives, #alllives, the crooked, the lying, Miss Piggy, and even the clowns, have left me feeling like I’m suffering from PTSD.  I’ve been wanting to pull the covers over my head and hibernate until Thanksgiving.

Can you relate?

As we thankfully near the end of this election season and this year, I want to give you a little reminder that helped me.

Remember that for every piece of bad news, there are 9999+ instances of beautiful, compassionate, sympathetic, generous actions that the news channels don’t feel are newsworthy to share.

Remember that despite the clouds, storms, and night skies, the sun never stops shining.

Remember that we need to see the dark and the dirty in order to know what to clean up.

Remember that you, goddess, are in the perfect position to shine your light and clear out the shadows.

Real Estate Investor Goddesses was created to help you build wealth through real estate transactions that uplift everyone touched by them. It was designed to help you create the lifestyle you desire and give you time freedom, so that you can effect positive change in the world.

We know that with enough money and time, you are unstoppable!

If this year has gotten you down, remember that things are much better than the news media will have you believe, and that you’re loved, you’re worthy, and you matter.

So crawl out from under that blanket, and get shining.

The world needs you.

Love,
Monick xo
