Wanna know if real estate investing is right for you?

Watch our panel discussion that was streamed live from FinCon 2021 with Mindy Jensen (BiggerPockets), OG (Stacking Benjamins), Rich Carey, and Paula Pant (that's me!). Joe Saul-Sehy moderated the panel from the bed. (Yep. You just have to watch.)

We shared our biggest investing mistakes, why we decided to invest in real estate, and the day-to-day life of a successful real estate investor. (Hint: it doesn't take up as much time as you think.) We also answered a bunch of questions that were submitted live from aspiring investors in the audience.
