DON’T BUY SHOES, BUY BUILDINGS

Invest like a SELF MADE woman and Make Money WHILE YOU SLEEP


Whether you are an entrepreneur or work for others, we must all become SELF MADE, by saving, investing, and making money while we sleep. Let me show you how! Wealth building is the next Frontier for women. It is how we can change our families and the world.

I am a serial entrepreneur. I have built three separate businesses in media. Yet, the reason I could retire by 45, was not because of my three business. It was because while I was building my businesses, I had a double life, a parallel track, “a side hustle” buying buildings; first for my business and then for other’s businesses. From 31- 45, my buildings began making me money while I slept. By 45, my revenue as a landlord allowed me to retire if I wanted to. What those buildings did was give me more freedom and choices for the rest of my life.

I continue to buy buildings, and I will share step-by-step how I did it in a non-grandiose way with $5,000 at age 31 - and how you can, too! Whether its buildings, stock, franchises, or a tech start-up, we must invest in other things besides our primary business or jobs. I will share my latest venture buying a church in Venice, CA and turning it into my next business, as well as my next real estate investment.
