Hello Real Estate Investors!!
The weather is finally warming up and spring market has finally come in April, as April has been our busiest month yet, and we still have a week to go!
I finally got on the roof to inspect repairs after the wind and ice storms. What the heck, Mother Nature? And I am finally getting around to taking down the Christmas lights. I was honestly going to turn the lights on during the ice storm and take a picture, Xmas in April!
Here I am on the roof taking down lights with my son, Bruce, watching. I’ve noticed both our kids repeating more of what we say and copying what we do, so Cherry and I are doing what we can to set a good example, including not disclosing to them my fears.
I’m afraid of spiders and heights. When I see a spider, I pretend I’m not afraid. When I’m on the roof and the kids are watching, I pretend I’m not afraid. I don’t want my kids to learn fears from me, if they are born with phobias, fine, but I don’t want them learning them from me.
Basically, I want to be a parent my kids can be proud of. I don’t know if what I’m doing will help, but it definitely can’t hurt. Same is true with our investing. I brought my daughter with me to a lease signing to meet my new single mom tenant and her five year old son. You don’t know how many people I’ve met who are afraid of tenants, and hopefully my kids will not be.
