“What worked for me was looking for different ways to have long-term investments.”
“I started listening to podcasts several years ago, and just kind of fell in love with the multifamily space and those that were teaching and so it just was something that I really want to get into.”
“I knew then I still have a lot to learn. But that was a way that I knew I could scale the education side was just to get around those that are excellent at what they do and great at their craft.”
“As I grow in these assets, and bring assets to passive investors, I think, within building that track record, it’s going more to high-net worth investors in my space of sports, and entertainment.”
“It takes time, obviously, because those relations – they feel safe with me from a creative standpoint, and we’ve worked together with clients.”
“I didn’t know you could pull money out of an IRA and self direct. So that was eye- opening, which I love.”
“I’m doing a lot of meetups and local local meetups, I’m even going to events that really aren’t real estate-focused. They might be wealth events or other things in the sports and entertainment industry.”
“It’s kind of really just a grassroots thing locally right now, and then someone on social media as well.”
“I’d love to get involved; let me know how I can be of value if you need anything or if I could be boots on the ground here in Nashville.”
“So just kind of getting all the foundation of my systems in place to kind of do some automation with a newsletter and building my list of leads. So just starting there – grassroots.”
“I still think it’s, for me, it’s events, local events, local and being in the same room and just starting those conversations and dialoguing, especially on the co-GP side.”
“I’m just trying to build my network and build relationships. It’s to be at one live event every month. So one large live event every month I’m going to is so nice.”
