5 Important Lessons from This Episode:

1 Savannah, like most people, was living 4-6 weeks away from a total financial hardship if her main source of income was lost.  She was living in a state of financial vulnerability and then her life changed in an instant and she found herself $400,000 in debt.
2 Many people – baby boomers especially – have been so focused on paying off their home mortgage that it prevents them from getting involved in real estate investing.  With the goal of paying off their house as quickly as possible deeply engrained in their minds, these people tend to be unwilling to leverage their money or property to invest.
3 If you want to get started in real estate investing, but you have little time, money, and credit, you might actually be at an advantage.  People living in struggle tend to have a bigger “why” which is the motivator that drove Savannah and will drive you as well.
4 By not taking the first step in real estate investing, you are being selfish.  It is not just about you.  It is about becoming financially free for your children and creating generational wealth that will positively impact your family for years to come.
5 Reality television shows have created false fears in people about real estate investing.  Neither Savannah nor Matt have EVER gotten out of bed to fix a clogged toilet.  Of the thousands of renters Savannah has had, only 2 of them have been headache renters.  Don’t be fearful of the drama, just get out there and start investing.
