Are you ready to take control of your financial future? Welcome to The Real Estate InvestHER Show! In this episode, we have the legend, Sharon Lechter. Sharon Lechter is a financial literacy expert, keynote speaker, and business mentor. She is a 5-time New York Times bestselling author, successful entrepreneur, and philanthropist. She co-authored the international bestseller "Rich Dad Poor Dad" and 14 other books in the "Rich Dad" series. She was asked by the Napoleon Hill Foundation to re-energize the teachings of Napoleon Hill after the 2008 economy crash. Her newest book "Exit Rich" supports entrepreneurs in building value and scalability in their businesses.


Liz and Andresa invite Sharon to discuss the importance of empowering children with their own entrepreneurial spirits and self-confidence. Sharon dives into topics such as creating a financial plan in a holistic way that is achievable and doable today, training your child's eye for success, understanding the current economy for real estate investors, having mentors and guidance to provide support, and diversifying across asset categories. She also shares her own personal story of how she shifted her mindset from negative scarcity to positive abundance, allowing her to build wealth.


Ladies, this conversation will leave you inspired to take action based on hope and productivity; to create wealth by instilling confidence in children; and to understand that business is a team sport. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from an experienced financial planner!




·        “Progress is better than perfection. Many people want everything to be perfect and they lose sight of the foundation that they're building but progress is what you want”. (11:13 - 11:29)

·        “We oftentimes think that we have to do everything by ourselves but passion plus talent is at times an association. Having people on your team who are strong, where you are weak, having those mentors that help accelerate your success, they will help you understand how to diversify.” (23:02 - 23:20)

·        “Mental education is the gift of a lifetime because unfortunately we're still not teaching it in schools. So, we have to teach ourselves and teach our children the opportunity to understand how to buy, build, and create assets, and just plaster that word everywhere. My favorite word on earth asset. Buy, build, and create assets”. (21:46 - 32:48)

·        "If you let your child set a goal, let allow them to work towards it, achieve it, and celebrate what you see is their self-confidence increase. […] That's really important. That's generational wealth to me.” (38:55 - 39:32)

·        “Stand in your own power, be your own beacon of light. And if you do that, you attract others that want to be part of what you're doing.” (42:36 - 42:44)

·        “When was the last time you did something for the first time? Because if you can't come up with the answer right away, that means that you may be living in your own comfort zone”. (47:08 - 47:19)
