Don’t be freaked out by those words. It just means you can make money without having to go to a 9-5 job by investing in real estate. Still, confused? Don’t worry, it is about to become much, much clearer to you.Jay Helms is my guest today and he is the founder of the W2 Capitalist, and he wants to help you build multiple streams of income through real estate investing.Multiple streams of income; imagine - removing all stress and anxiety about providing for yourself and your family. How nice does that sound?Jay was in his 30s when he and his wife began their real estate journey and he speaks largely to 30-40-year-olds, but I know that there are a large number of you who are in your 20s who are wanting to know more about this. So today, I have a new format where Jay will answer some questions live from two young men in their mid-20s who want to know how to get started in real estate investing now. The panel is made up of Michael and Yarin.

Millennial Millionaire Real Estate Podcast

In this episode, Jonathan Farber interviews Jay Helms on his path from his first buy and hold investment to investing in over 320 units of various types and educating others along the way. Jay is an investor and educator based in Gulf Breeze, Florida. In this episode, we get into topics like: when to leave your W2, making smart investments during coronavirus, building a network in real estate, and more! Top Takeaways: Finding the right time to leave your W2 - 12:30 - 16:30 If you’re waiting for a sign, you’re ready to go already Once you know what numbers you need to support yourself without it, hit them and go There will never be a “right time” for you to transition, and there is no single solution Best investment approaches during coronavirus - 28:15 - 34:00 You have to acknowledge the reality that the market is shifting As the economic effects start to take hold, the time to buy will come Don’t be tempted to shift your criteria just to force a bad deal through Building your real estate network - 35:00 - 39:30 Every time you consume content, you have the chance to spread what you’re working on Social media is an invaluable tool for making connections that would’ve been impossible otherwise Staying engaged gets your name out and makes people more comfortable working with you How to bring value to Jay Helms: Check out his mastermind Resources: Book by Hal Elrod: The Miracle Morning Book by Brian P.
