Dreamer’s Wealth of Wisdom:
- Fear is a powerful emotion. And we see so many people get trapped in the current space that they can’t visualize themselves somewhere else doing something different. — Reshawn Lee
- You don’t have to have 100 rental properties to retire. You can do so much with real estate once you understand all the vehicles that are available to you. — Reshawn Lee
- When it’s a seller’s market, definitely take advantage of the opportunity to get rid of any properties that are causing progress. — Reshawn Lee
- If you got the houses and you got the houses paying you, you got cash flow coming in. — Rob Lee
- We decided to play it safe. A lot of people don’t play it safe. So we decided, “Hey, let’s try to do our own thing to make our own money and not have to answer to someone else all the time.” — Rob Lee
- Legacy is the opportunity to leave something behind for future generations that help them to continue to grow and be successful. — Reshawn Lee
- Everything starts with financial literacy. — Reshawn Lee
- If you can’t give them anything else, give them the game. Because this is not changing. You can sit here and complain about the environment that you’re in and how it’s not fair. But that’s not going to make it fair. — Reshawn Lee
- Everything starts with learning. — Reshawn Lee
