I am a visionary that keeps my eyes on the horizon, despite the turmoil that may be in front of me. I’ve learned to listen and trust my gut, recognize pat - terns, and interpret data.”is so much to learn from others.” What is one of your professional goals for 2021 and how do you plan to achieve it? “I will launch the Digital Tax Lien Bootcamp by Q3 2021. I plan to achieve this through milestones we’ve mapped out. And, just because I’ve announced it here, the pres - sure is on.” What’s your greatest real estate investment success story? “My whole story is my greatest story. Everybody loves a rags to riches story and that is my story. The only dif - ference is that I lost those riches in the market crash of 2001. I got back in the game and did it again then lost everything again in the 2008 market crash. Once again, I got back in and started dominating in the tax lien niche, which ultimately led to financial stability and then finan - cial freedom. My greatest deal story is a tax lien I purchased for $4,000 in a drug infested, “D” neighborhood that nobody wanted, and many people said I was crazy to invest in. It ended up being gentrified and increased in value to $200,000 (as-is) and $450,000 after repair value.” Best advice for new investors? • Invest in your education. It is easier, faster and less expensive to have someone teach you how to do something than DIY and learn as you go. DIY mistakes can cost a pretty penny. • Surround yourself with a community of like-minded investors via educational platforms such as Think Realty, Real Estate Investor Associations (REIAs), and Mastermind groups. • Start your business off right with proper systems like accounting, administration, marketing, sales, and operations, or you will become a slave to your business. Best advice for seasoned investors? “Be of service and help others. Plan for family, self, and leisure time. Otherwise, all the wealth we create is useless.”

Why is the real estate industry good for women? “The real estate industry is great for women because it creates an environment for our special and unique talents: attention to detail, project management, col - laboration, networking, being of service. The industry is extremely vast and can allow many women to create financial freedom not only for themselves and their fami - lies, but for others in their communities as well.” What strategies/tools within the real estate investing industry have helped you the most? “Reading has been my most valuable tool, not only in real estate, but in life. Reading opens the imagination to endless possibilities and makes our thoughts tangible. Networking has, by far, opened more doors than I deserved; collaboration has helped me to grow like wild - fire; and being of service keeps me going, keeps me ful - filled, and has returned the favor when I needed it most.” What are three things readers might not know about you? 1  I want to become a DJ! Not a professional for hire, but as a hobby. 2  I want to go to law school—not to be a lawyer—but to prove to myself I can do it. 3  I am single. LOL!
