Hi, my name is Nancy.
I grew up in the Midwest and was always looking for ways to make money, even at a young age. I started with babysitting, and even took a job shucking corn in the middle of the fields.
I studied at the University of Kansas, and finally made it through college, and got my degree in Social Work. One of my first jobs was managing a Section 8 program – at that time it was a bit new, and it was my first glimpse of how people can struggle to find affordable housing.
When I was growing up, we didn’t have a lot of money – or what I should say, is sometimes we were flush – and other times not so much. So what I learned about money is that it comes and goes. I was trying to understand how to keep the money, even as I became adult, it never seemed the money lasted to the end of the month.
I was raised that if you worked hard, you would make more money.
What I learned is if you work really hard, you are just tired and broke at the end of the day. I had to come up with a plan and start learning how to use money and more importantly how money could work for me.
As my career progressed, I started looking at opportunities that seemed beyond me, but the money I could make, made it tempting for me to feel scared and take the risk of a new job, a move or sometimes a sacrifice to my family.
One time I was offered a job as a management consultant, and I was thrilled, I would be making the most money I ever had, but it came with a sacrifice, I had to travel often.
My husband and I struggled with the decision, but at the time, he had been laid off, so I took the job. Looking back I realize I missed out on some family time, but we had money so it all seemed okay.
Then the biggest hurdle, emotional time for us – when we quit our jobs in Arizona, and in three weeks, we moved to the Dallas area. We did not have jobs, but we had some money from the sale of our house, and we had faith that that we both were skilled enough to land another job.
It was at this time in my life that I really was tired of the 9 to 5, the demands from a boss, and really having to be on every single day in my management position, to say I was stuck was an understatement.
With all the fear, uncertainty and stress I decided to look at ways I could make money, be my own boss and have income where I didn’t have to worry about where my next check was coming from.
That is when I discovered real estate as a way to make money. I read, studied, but it wasn’t until I had a trusted mentor that I really understood how I could make a living and have the kind of freedom I really longed for.
After putting in the research, taking actions and hiring the right type of coaches for me, I finally have the peace of mind I have longed for – I have the peace of mind that there is always enough money, I have the time to spend with my family and I get to be my own boss.
Taking actions, along with overcoming my feelings of fear, doubt and self-confidence, I took baby steps and finally achieved my goal of getting what I had longed for.
Now, I travel, write books and teach others just like you how to take the baby steps, how to take the action and how to overcome your biggest fears.
It has been a journey. I created this platform for people just like you. But I wanted to be able to give people a choice of learning, on their own terms.
Maybe you just need some information about the type of real estate your are interested in. If so, then I have online courses just for you.
Maybe you just need a free resource to answer some basic questions – got you covered there as well.
Maybe you are just stuck, frustrated and need someone to guide you, hold you accountability and give you a fresh perspective – that is why my coaching program is for you.
My platform was created with you in mind.
