biggerpockets entrepreneur investher investor realestate womeninconstruction womeninfinance womeninrealestate Oct 07, 2022


It happens to the best of us. We devote so much time and energy growing our business and taking care of our loved ones that we end up having very little for ourselves.

Erika Brown joins us today for an inspiring conversation about overcoming limiting beliefs and achieving breakthroughs. When she stopped saying no to deals she didn’t understand, Erika was able to scale quickly and build a multi-million dollar real estate empire. She talks about how she’s managing her personal life in an unconventional way and opens up about how she healed from emotional burnout by reconnecting with her true self. 

Through her own experience of being a homeowner and investor, Erika has worked in every aspect of the business representing sellers, buyers, investors, and financing. Not only is Erika a successful realtor and real estate investor coach, she is also a mom of three handsome boys and a wife to her best friend.



• “I just focused on at least knowing the next two steps. And then I trusted that, between my network or between my resourcefulness, I could figure out the rest.” (15:20-15:36)

• “I would say to not just focus on the negatives, but to push through and focus on the overall goal in which you're working to because the reward is so much greater on the other side.” (18:00-18:13)

• “Your team can look like how you want it to look.” (18:41-18:43)

• “I stopped carrying everybody else's stuff. That's the biggest mindset ‘cause I no longer could. I was breaking down.” (26:54-27:01)

• “It's a matter of compartmentalization. I think that is healthy to have it because if not, then you will just kind of drag through life.” (33:36-33:46)

• “When we're burned out, we're no good for anyone. We are operating just out of exhaustion." (38:31-38:39)
