It’s no secret that Cayla loves investing and is obsessed with talking about ways to make money. One way to invest is in real estate and Cayla began that journey a few years ago by purchasing her first fourplex. In this episode, Cayla walks you through her experience and the lessons she learned through purchasing property. She even includes how much money she invested upfront, how she managed the property for a year and a half, and how much return she received in reselling it.

Ultimately, you have to start acting like you are ready to make this kind of deal. Do the research and ask the questions. Find your mentor and get into the process beforehand so you are ready to go when the money is available to be invested.
