Dreamers’ Wealth of Wisdom:
  • We have to get out of our feelings and get into the numbers. – Attiyah Blair
  • I was super disciplined. I only did one (investment) at a time because that’s all I could afford. And then I saved all that money. And then I did it again. So literally I was rolling the money from one project to another. I was not at the mall. I was not at Louis Vuitton. I didn’t go to start buying designer stuff. And this is important because people wanna look rich and not be rich. I didn’t start buying designer things until my net worth was at seven figures. – Attiyah Blair
  • Feeling like you have to come up with all that money by yourself is one of the common misconceptions that keep people from getting started at all.  – Attiyah Blair
  • You can’t build wealth-flipping houses. You can make money – which is great – but you can’t build wealth. – Attiyah Blair
  • Don’t complain. Don’t point the finger at who and this and the economy and this – forget all that. It doesn’t help you, even if you’re right. Blaming and complaining are not helpful. You can make a ton of money even with us being in a recession. Many millionaires are created in a recession and that’s gonna be true this time around. – Attiyah Blair
  • In building wealth, the ultimate flex its time and options. – Attiyah Blair
  • Success is not hard, it’s just that being mediocre and average is easy. – Attiyah Blair
  • Success leaves clues. And now that we are in the information age, success is at our fingertips. – Attiyah Blair
