The Things You Need to Do Before You Start Investing with Dr. Patricia Red Hawk


If you’re thinking about getting started in real estate investing, you’re probably focusing on strategies, negotiation, and how to find your first deal.  However, I want to ask you a question. Have you ever thought about the things you need to do before you start investing?  I’m talking about things like getting your “financial house in order” before you ever think about launching your business.

Probably not.

Taking these steps will make everything else so much easier as you build your business.

My guest today, is Dr. Patricia Red Hawk.  Patricia is a former physician, she served in the California Army National Guard and is now a full-time real estate investor who has some great advice on things you need to do before you start investing.  You’re also going to learn about a brand-new investing strategy.


“Getting yourself set up means everything that comes after is going to be much easier. Then you’re not building your plane while in flight”.  -Dr. Patricia Red Hawk
