Still Learning After All These Years

A couple of years ago, I tried to start a website called “The Landlord School.”  I was doing all the right things, but I simply could not get it off the ground.  I had a complete crisis of confidence and refused to believe that anyone would ever want to listen to what I have to say.  So, after a few excruciating months, I closed up shop.

Recently, when I decided to try it again, I realized that the website name had been all wrong.  First of all, most people hate school.  And second, I certainly don’t want to be the teacher in charge.  Even though I am a landlord, I hate to tell people what to do.  And I definitely don’t see myself as the expert.  Sure a lot has changed over the last few years and I have overcome some insurmountable problems (I will tell you more about that when we know each other better).  But my business is still a work in progress.

So, a new name came to me “Learn to be a Landlord.”  Being a landlord is a process and I am an active participant in that process.  In fact, the thing I love the most about my business is how much I have had to learn in order to make it work.

I hope you can learn something from my blog posts.  And feel free to share your comments so I can learn from you.  Also, if you have a specific question for me, just click on the “Ask Jessica” tab at the top and ask away.

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!
