“For me, I never want to go back to that life of struggle. I was homeless. They look at life now and say, no way. But homeless at one point…the lowest point, begging people for money”.

“It is very doable but it takes a lot of out of box thinking. As women, automatically the fear is there. You are thinking why this won’t work. But I am thinking, “How can I make this work realistically?”

“A lot of people want to go into real estate. They invest in a lot of books and seminars and conference. But they never really take action”.
