Being a landlord comes with a lot of responsibilities. Not only do we need to maintain a property but we also have to make sure that our tenants are happy and are living comfortably. 


In this minisode, we talk about the benefits of becoming a hands-on landlord. Liz shares her own experience and how she got a better grasp of the business from handling the day-to-day operations and dealing with tenant issues. We also hear Andresa’s perspective on not taking everything on our shoulders and gaining the right knowledge in order to hire the right property manager.



• “I always say you pay for your education one way or the other through literally just making mistakes or you pay for it more formally through a coach mentor.” (6:24-6:32)

• “When you’re hands-on, you're getting really clear on the different ways that you can increase your income or reduce expenses.” (7:53-8:03)

• “You could probably say you could do that if you have a property manager. I think it's a little different though when your team is it because there's nowhere else to look and you have to figure it out. ” (8:04-8:13)

• “Regardless if you're hands-on or not, the power of building systems, the power of building a team is incredibly important.” (9:07-9:14)

• “You're going to manage that property manager a little differently because you know the business, you know what to ask, what not to ask." (9:59-10:05)

• “Starting small adds a lot of breath to what you're doing versus just going big all the time.” (10:47-10:52)

The inaugural InvestHER CON was unforgettable.

We saw women freely raising their hands, asking questions, and going to the mic to share their thoughts; we saw women confidently speaking with sponsors, holding intimate conversations with each other, and connecting on a deeper level with themselves.

You laughed with us.

You cried with us.

You played in the arena with us.
