7X-ing her income by leaving a so-so job to flip houses! Today’s guest is Kara Beckmann, a rehabber and rental property investor who’s tearing it up in Scottsdale, Ariz., and on her Instagram page @beckmannhouse. You’ll be inspired by Kara’s journey from pastry chef to retail worker to full-time investor funding deals with private and hard money. Kara shares some great tips for networking with wholesalers and builders to snag deals (to date, she’s spent $0 on marketing). You’ll also learn how she maximizes profit by sticking to her rehab budgets, how she keeps contractors on deadline, and how she manages risk by outlining several different exit strategies. Kara’s story will motivate you to apply your own “unique ability” to your real estate business and overcome the fear that might be stopping you from doing your first or next deal!
