Dear investors and entrepreneurs,
I am proud of the accomplishments that I have made in business, real estate and investing. It has really taken me from just thinking about financial freedom to actually experiencing it. Real estate investing has and always will be one of the safest and surest strategies to wealth. Even in a down market, there is always a niche in real estate that makes sense.
My goal has always been helping others and striving for a larger cause. As an environmental professional with degrees in Geology and Environmental Science, I am honored to have worked on some of the largest hazardous waste sites in the United States. As an investor, I am intrigued with government foreclosures and tax lien certificates. Finally, as an educator, I love to write and teach about what I have learned and help others in the business.
I remember starting my investing career by simply purchasing my own home with no money down, taking advantage of government programs and the ability to borrow against a 401(k) at work. Believe me, this wasn't so I could tell a good story later. It was out of necessity. I had a new baby, college loans and lots of credit card debt.
Although I was busy traveling at work, I couldn't help but read more and more about investing and starting my own business. Some of my favorite influences were Robert Allen, Carleton Sheets and Charles Givens.
This led me to purchase my first Veteran's Administration (VA) foreclosure and dive right into the world of real estate investing. Not much later, I stumbled into tax lien investing, which became a fascination.
In 1999, I helped start the business Mind Like Water, Inc., and shortly after co-wrote the “Rogue Real Estate Investor Collection,” with its emphasis on tax lien and tax deed investing. Over the years I have attended many tax sales and taught workshops on this subject. I have been invited to speak with industry giants such as Harv Eker ("Secrets of the Millionaire Mind"), and have been quoted in Money Magazine on the topic of tax liens.
I am still active in real estate through foreclosures, tax lien certificates and rental property management.
I hope I can work with you soon and help you in some small way.
Wishing you the best in life,
