As high achievers and capable women we tend to do a lot ourselves…because we can. This is also a detriment to our business. In this episode we have a special guest, Wendy Papasan, who will be one of the keynotes at the InvestHER CON.

This episode is a great opportunity to learn the relevant steps to use leverage in your personal life and business. 

Wendy is the owner of Papasan Properties Group. She leads real estate teams in Austin, Houston, Texas and Minneapolis, MN. Since 2009, she and her team have sold more than 1250 homes totaling more than $475 Million. 

Wendy is passionate about seeing women succeed in business and helping everyone grow their wealth. Let’s dive into her leadership journey!



• "I think especially for women, we just feel like we have to do all the things. And the problem is that if you’re pretty capable of doing all the things...it’s actually a detriment.” (11:37 - 11:49)

• "The purpose of this business is to make money. And if you’re running your business you need to know your hourly wage.” (14:54 - 15:03)

• "I’ll just acknowledge that it’s very hard to hire that first [person]. It’s very scary because all of a sudden, you’re not a solopreneur anymore.” (20:43 - 20:33)

• "That [hiring] process will get a good candidate to come to you. And you just have to understand that you are the kind of leader probably now that’s going to attract mega-talent” (26:51 - 27:06)

• "To do real estate investing, you have to be able to analyze deals, you have to have time and space. And you can’t do that if you’re always running around after your kids and cleaning toilets.” (36:26 - 36:37)

• "When we have control over things, and we think that we can do things better than everybody else, that’s just ego. That’s truly ego. (38:51 - 39:25)
