In this episode of the F.I.R.E podcast, I talked to Brenda Bastell, a successful Canadian-based real estate investor, the President of Viva Properties. Brenda started buying properties in 1982 and has been involved in the real estate business for over 33 years. She sees value in helping out others, and her number one goal is to help her clients succeed.
Real estate is a lucrative investment, and there are a lot of reasons that prevent people from starting. Women, in particular, wear many hats, and the common roadblocks for them are not having enough time and the fear of making mistakes. On top of that, many of them don’t know how or where to start. Brenda will share how she started in the real estate business and how having the right attitude helped propel her business to what it is today.
If you’re feeling uninspired, this episode is for you. Brenda and I will get you fired up, and take action because you too can do it!
