Episode 40: The Life of a Silver Haired Investor

This week, our Sweet guest Laurie walks us through her journey investing in Real Estate as a senior, and what the stigma for “silver haired investors” looks like. People’s limiting beliefs did NOT hold her back! She talks to us in detail about what it took her to get where she is today, and how other seniors can do so too!

In this episode…

  • We cover how Laurie got started in Real Estate without any prior experience; abandoning her decent salary job in order to pursue investing through her pensions!
  • “You have to trust, that from the power of necessity, you will always find a way”  we, as human beings, are innate survivors! Whenever we find ourselves in a tough spot, we know how to get out of it. When it comes to investing, it’s important to understand the risk… and take it anyway!
  • Laurie tells us about her passion for helping people, getting out there and spreading her knowledge in order to help other people reach financial freedom. 
  • We cover Laurie’s weekly meetings for “silver haired investors”, where they talk about a number of challenges they face in the industry and help support each other. She offers creative ways to step into the game in a safe way!
  • Laurie gives her advice on how to overcome challenges that may arise through deals and qualifying for a mortgage.
