Inner Voices

If you are anything like me, chances are you will find yourself waking up every third day or so with a raging case of self-doubt.  And that’s a good week.  Maybe I never got it out of my system in junior high school, but man I can do a hell of a job on myself.  On these days, it can be helpful to treat yourself like your favorite sports team during a losing streak.  They need your support and encouragement even more now than when they are winning.

One of the greatest myths about entrepreneurs is that we can actually spell the word entrepreneurs. No really, it is that we are these confident, invincible forces that sail through the world turning everything we touch to gold with our charm.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  I am a neurotic, doubting, worrying mess, just like you.  The only difference is that I have learned to act in spite of what I am feeling.  I can look at my inner psychotic and say “That’s nice dear, I appreciate what you have to say, but I am going to go ask the bank for a 3 million dollar loan, anyway. Talk to you later. Don’t eat the cat while I am gone.”

About Learn to Be a Landlord
I currently am a real estate investor in Spokane, WA. I own and manage 79 rental units. My background is not in business, but in social services and community organizing. I also had way too much liberal arts education. Somehow that all fits together to make me a landlord!
