Kristie Bergey is an Associate with Very Real Estate who helps people get new leases in a record-breaking time of less than 3 hours. With her background in real estate, she grasps the essence of the investment world. It is no surprise that she is also an entrepreneur who creates new businesses. Today, she travels the world and embraces the cultural differences in Philadelphia while owning three homes.

Kristie joins me today to share what led her to change the narrative of her life and how her change in mindset resulted in the success she’s currently enjoying today. She shares what inspired her to begin investing in herself, how she failed in her attempt to have a thriving business while clinging to a false sense of security as well as the things she would have done differently about these “crutches.” She also shares why she makes it a point to help others avoid the challenges she faced and her reflections and realizations along the way.

“It’s not about the ‘woulda, shoulda, coulda.’” - Kristie Bergey
