Invest Like A Goddess with Monick Halm
Meet Monick Halm
Monick Halm is the founder of Real Estate Investor Goddesses. She is an educator and advocate for female real estate investors and has a mission to help 1 million women achieve financial freedom through real estate. Monick is herself a real estate investor and syndicator and owns, together with her investors, over 1000 rental doors across thirteen states.
She is a graduate of McGill University and Columbia Law School. She is the #1 bestselling author of The Real Estate Investor Goddess Handbook and Invest Like a Goddess – Advice from the Most Successful Women in Real Estate, a TEDx speaker, podcast host, real estate strategy mentor, yogi, world traveler, recovered attorney, wife, and mother of three amazing kids.
Monick grew up with two parents from Haiti who emphasized the importance of getting a good education and becoming either a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. Monick chose to be a lawyer but soon realized that she did not like the profession and found it to be soul-sucking. It wasn’t until she was let go while pregnant with her first child that she realized the blessing of being given the freedom to try her hand at real estate investing. This blessing in disguise gave her the ability to start her business which now educates millions of women on how to invest like a goddess.
Investing Like A Goddess
Real Estate investing is not one size fits all. Monick shared a great metaphor to help you figure out your investment vision and how to reverse engineer it. She shared that if you were going on a vacation, you’d first figure out where you want to go. Do you want to travel abroad to the South of Frances (yes, please!), the pyramids in Egypt, the grand canyon, or perhaps a beach in Cape Cod? Like planning a vacation, you’ll want to figure out your vision. For example, do you want enough passive income to retire from any job? Perhaps you want to be set for retirement and have a significant nest egg, or maybe you want to leave a fantastic legacy for your children’s children’s children. Clarify your vision first.
Next, you’ll want to address what kind of trip you’re taking. Are you going to be on a cruise, biking through the Alps, riding in an RV, flying first class, or perhaps hiking? Similarly, it’s important to understand and choose the investing options that fit your greater vision, which might be investing in buildings, syndications, duplexes, single-family homes, etc.
Lastly, you need to know what resources you have available and how to leverage them. We talked about how having resources doesn’t always mean money. It could be your time, your relationships, or even your experience
Why Women Fear Investing
In the past, it was dangerous for women to own their power. It wasn’t until 1974 that women could get their own loans without having a man accompany them. Often the fear stems from not being sure how to invest in real estate or where to begin. Monick wants you to know that this is something anyone can do, whether you grew up on food stamps or with a family who owned real estate. Check out her free training on her website to learn more and get started, and get her book, Invest Like a Goddess. It’s time for us women to build our own wealth, stability, and financial security.
The Goddess Secret Sauce
1) Pleasure – The new reframe is ‘Pleasure through’ vs. ‘Muscle through.’ Don’t try to muscle through anything. This hyper-masculine way of doing life will lead you to exhaustion. Pleasure does NOT mean comfort, though. Remember, there is no growth in a comfort zone or comfort in a growth zone. Prioritizing pleasure is revolutionary and often uncomfortable.
2) Intuition – this is your life GPS! Don’t expect your intuition to be logical. It doesn’t run on logic, and rather, it is your direct line to your Higher Power that will show you the path best for you. The goal here is to learn to trust your intuition fully.
3) Mindset – your fears and limiting beliefs will keep you stuck and held back from abundance if not addressed. Much of your success will come from healing and moving past worn-out stories and beliefs that are not true.
4) Sisterhood – women are biologically wired for community and sisterhood. We are not meant to do life (or investing) alone. Scientific research shows that women experience a release of oxytocin, the feel-good hormone, with intimacy, breastfeeding, and in the community. We learn better and get out of the stress state quicker in sisterhood.
The Abundant Path
I love how Monick reminded us that we’ll always have challenges and problems; it’s part of how we learn and grow. The choice is whether you want rich life problems or poor life problems. Don’t forget that you get to choose; her suggestion is to choose the abundant path!
