“Don’t be embarrassed, be yourself.” -Christina Suter
Today I am talking about what to do if you are embarrassed by your real estate skills as a newbie investor or as a seasoned investor. Being overwhelmed and embarrassed is actually very common in investing but there are ways to help you move forward. For the new investor the first step is education. I would suggest you start by attending a real estate meeting 1 to 2 times a week. At this stage try not to worry about the topic and focus on gaining as much knowledge about the field of real estate as possible. After about 6 months of consistency you will begin to find ways and people to help you start even if you don’t know where. Another aspect for the new investor is being willing to say I don’t know. This will open your curiosity and push you towards research which can help you solidify a new beginning. For the expert investor you may be feeling left behind in comparison to how the new investors around you are moving. I would suggest you start asking yourself, am I happy with my portfolio? As life changes, it’s important to note that maybe your portfolio needs to adapt to those changes as well. Another suggestion I have is to begin educating yourself again and making sure you are reconnecting and redeveloping.
