Real Estate Update

Wrapping on house #8, the one with the kitchen fire.

We had to get extensive inspections on this one because of the damage but it’s about done and we have a tenant ready to move in. Should have pictures and a complete blog post for it soon

I’ve been working on a 24 unit apartment complex. It’s been a tricky deal for sure but I’m learning a TON and that’s what’s most important. The biggest lesson I’ve learned so far is: PUSH THE GOAL POST FORWARD. As long as you have time to bail on a deal if you get too jammed up, then go forward. I hindered myself a lot in the past by thinking “I wasn’t ready” and I wasn’t but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try to push each deal as far as it will go. I’ve learned so much about how to sell these deals to investors, the process of closing, and how to best prepare for one just by TRYING to get it done. Great experience and I will have much better updates next month. It may not close so I don’t want to over promise. 

Podcast launch

I know I’ve been talking about this for a LONG time, but finally I’ve launched it. It’s still a bit rough so I haven’t done much marketing, but it’s live and will improve. Get in early and check it out, it’s going to be famous before you know it!

What else happened this month

HUGE month for me, I crushed the gym, I travelled to Fayetteville to try and put this deal together and I’m working to launch my own podcast. Working nonstop and loving every moment of it.  Here are some small personal updates and pics I wanted to share.

Is this the baddest realtor around? Probably not, but she is fun! Shelby Osborne at Five Pillars Realty

What to expect out of May

The podcast is going to grow

The 8th rental will be complete

and I MAY close on this apartment building

Books I read this month

I have been CRUSHING books this month.  Once I find something I love to read I just go obsessed! 

Thus Spoke Zarathustra – Friedrich Nietzsche

The Missionary Position – Christopher Hitchens

The Kingdom of God is Within You – Leo Tolstoy

Capitalist and Slavery – Eric Williams

I added a “required reading” page to my site as well to track all my favorite books. It’s rough and needs to be updated but I’m happy to have a single place for recommendations. 

check it out here: 

Invest with me

This whole site is going to shift towards bringing in new investors to buy deals with us. 

We are likely to close on a 24 unit I’m working on, and as soon as that’s done we will be looking for the next one. If you’re interested now or in the future, TELL ME and make sure you subscribe to the newsletter!

I am an investor and camera creator I share my story to make yours easier. I created financial freedom through real estate, then found my love of art through cameras, and I have an ongoing love of reading and philosophy. I am hyper-extrovert so there are lots of ways on this site for us to interact. I have workshops you can participate in, I have a podcast that I invite strangers on, and I have a private community you can be part of. Everything I learn about life goes here so I can hopefully make yours easier
