Play • 53 min

She read Rich Dad Poor Dad, got angry at herself for not having built multiple income streams... and decided to do something about it!

Tricia Baxter is a real estate rookie who got in the game in her mid-40s. In this episode, she shares how she built a healthy portfolio of small multifamily properties on the Jersey Shore.

Tricia's a busy professional with her own law practice, but she still decided to self-manage when she got started—namely, to learn the ropes and create standard operating procedures, which came in handy when she eventually hired a property manager (spoiler: that's her MVP!).

This episode is full of great tips for anyone who aspires to treat their real estate investing like the business it is!
