Let’s dig into her story and see how a former US Army Officer builds bulletproof systems to scale!



• "What I've learned now is like there's some lower level tasks that I really enjoy doing. And there's some really higher level tasks that just suck the life out of me, and I hate doing them.” (12:28 - 12:38)

• "When you start looking to building a team, I encourage you to think about…is it also an investment?” (14:46 - 14:53)

• "Step one, figuring out what it is you need that person to do, because hiring takes time and can be draining. ” (17:37 - 17:48)

• "I really just kind of put myself on the other side of it like I invest in syndications myself. And so I just think about when a syndicator brings me a deal and kind of how, like I personally don't get emotionally invested. (27:35 - 27:48)

• "Women are better investors than men almost 100% of the time across the board. And it's because we have a different strategy, we are in it for the long game, we typically have a plan before we even get started.” (30:17 - 30:29)

• "Make sure that you have those contingencies built, and you have a little bit of reserves, but I'm honestly not changing anything that I'm doing in terms of my real estate (41:27 - 41:36)
