I am always excited about learning new things. In my line of work, I always expect to encounter new and useful information that can help me improve my skills in this sector. Indeed, if you are as experienced as I am in property investing and management, you would know the value of education, especially if it comes from a mentor.
One thing’s for sure, you can’t learn things on your own. Well, I am saying that because knowledge has to come somewhere.
When I came to America, I was really eager to meet with people and learn as much as I can from their experiences. So, you see, knowledge has to come from someone who can provide valuable lessons. It’s only a matter of being in this consistent mindset in terms of finding a mentor.
A mentor should be someone who can provide you guidance, especially when it concerns something as complex as multifamily syndications. Look for the mentors who have achieved a high level of success. Honestly, I have gone through difficult challenges myself, but I was able to overcome these simply by becoming more curious and hungry for knowledge.
That’s the key! If you want to succeed in something and build your goals, you need to develop a yearning for more knowledge. Once you have done that, everything else will follow. Along the way, you will need to find someone who can be your mentor. It won’t be hard if you follow these simple tips.
Join industry events
Being a newbie to real estate investing shouldn’t hinder you from going out there and building valuable connections with potential industry partners. Every year, there are a lot of real estate events you can join. From conferences to seminars, these events provide a lot of opportunities for you to nurture new relationships. But be careful to not get sucked into purchasing a $30,000 or $40,000 course!! I would like to suggest asking questions at forums where industry leaders, especially those involved in multifamily syndications, can provide a lot of information you can use to your advantage.
Participate in webinars and live events
With technology such as Facebook Live and Zoom, experienced investors and syndicators can easily share what they know about their fields to as many people as possible. I am a big fan of webinars, and I really think these are powerful tools for sharing knowledge and impacting the lives of others. In fact, I also publish my webinars on my website because other people may find something of value from them. I also encourage people to participate in these webinars, wherein I become their eventual mentor.
Join a syndication academy
Aside from these sources of information, you can also join a multifamily syndication program. Presently, there are a lot of free materials about multifamily syndication, but you still need a great teacher to make sense of everything for you. If you want to be successful in this sector, it’s important to have an expert guide you each and every step of the way. Sure enough, you can always join a syndication academy to learn the ropes of multifamily investing from a mentor. I believe in investing in yourself, maybe $5000 max is a good goal!
In closing, mentors are valuable if you want to make it big in the multifamily sector. It’s only a matter of getting out there to find someone you can depend on.
