Make Freedom Ring – How to get Financially Free Transitioning into REI

If you’ve been dreaming about breaking free from the 9-to-5 grind and taking control of your finances, you’re in the right place. Today, I am diving into how to transition smoothly into real estate investing (REI) and actually achieve your financial goals.

Real estate is such a powerful tool for financial freedom, but why?

The answer is simple: it offers multiple income streams, tax benefits, and the opportunity to build lasting wealth.

Unlike other investments, real estate gives you control over your financial destiny. What you put in, is what you get out! You can start small and scale up, making it accessible to everyone regardless of your starting point and background. Everyone can do it if you are willing to do the work. The thing here is, not everyone is willing to do the work.

The first thing you need to do is gain the knowledge. Knowledge is power, ladies! Start by learning the basics of real estate investing. Attend webinars, join REIW masterclasses, and immerse yourself in the community. Surround yourself with like-minded women who are also on this journey. When you are around successful people, you will learn tips, strategies, and the mindset is takes to make it in the business.

Second, I want you to remember this… your network is your net worth! Connect with other investors, real estate agents, and mentors. Collaborate with professionals in the industry. Join local REI groups, attend meetups, and leverage social media to expand your connections. The support and knowledge you gain from a strong network are invaluable.

My next tip is to begin with smaller, manageable investments like wholesaling, low rehab flips, or single/small multifamily rentals. These are great ways to get your feet wet without overwhelming yourself.

As you gain experience and confidence, you can move on to larger deals like larger apartment unit buildings and heavier rehabs. Always have a long-term vision in mind and set clear, achievable goals.

Hot tip: Before diving in, make sure you have a solid financial plan. Understand your budget, secure financing, and be prepared for unexpected expenses. Certain avenues of real estate investing require capital, but smart planning ensures you’re not caught off guard. Utilize creative financing options and leverage other people’s money (OPM) to maximize your investments.

Now the final part, it’s time to TAKE ACTION. This is where our mantra “Just do it messy™” comes into play! Don’t wait for the perfect moment or perfect deal. Take action with the knowledge and resources you have. Every step forward, no matter how small, brings you closer to your financial freedom. Learn from each experience, adapt, and keep moving. You only fail when you quit. So don’t quit.

REI is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It requires dedication, persistence, and a positive mindset. Stay consistent with your efforts, keep learning, and don’t be discouraged by setbacks. Every successful investor has faced challenges—what sets them apart is their resilience and determination to keep going.

Remember, financial freedom through REI is possible for anyone willing to put in the work and understand the journey. Now go make freedom ring!!
