Episode 5:Sandhya Seshadri : From Tech to stock market to Real estate investing

The Real Path to BYOB(Be your own Boss)

Sandhya Seshadri has Bachelors and Masters in Electrical engineering and worked at TI for over 14 years in various technical, management and marketing roles with revenues in excess of 80million dollars and budgets of 28million. She acquired an MBA from SMU and started investing in stocks and built a portfolio that has allowed her to retire early, she diversified into commercial real estate in 2018 and has passively invested in 4000 doors and syndicated 3 deals.Contact Info:https://multifamily4you.comReal estate was Sandhya's third career, after a successful career in tech, stock markets. She was always interested in real estate but didn't want to deal with tenant's toilets and trash, which is what she thought single-family rentals were all about.Sandhya wanted a career where she could make an impact on lives and multifamily investments were a good fit.Real estate funds are illiquid,  money gets locked for three to five years and investors should keep this in mind. She sticks to deals in her local area because  that's her biggest strength when raising funds- as she feels confident about all the factors that influence the dealHer recommendation to passive investors is to make sure the people you invest with understand asset management. pick operators who are based in that target market. Someone who has skin in the game and who will stay with the deal long termIn the COVID-19 market, the primary goal for active investors according to her should be to avoid delinquencies and  have a form of getting paid through assisted programs and rental insuranceIdentify  your monetary targets, and  the financial gaps to pick the right investments to be able to transition out of a W2 job and jot down goals -yearly goals Questions passive investors should be asking sponsors: Are you the person signing on the loan, do you have money left in the deal after closing and taking the acquisition feeOne thing that helped her succeed was persistence, just never giving up. And if one way that someone else has done it doesn't work for you, find your own way, Blaze your own trail, make your own trail, don't have to follow somebody else's road. But persistence, how badly you want it will determine how hard and how smart you work for itThere is no substitute for hard work and working smartly. So you have to do both. Make sure your goals are broken down, make a vision board and have accountability partners.Make sure your goals are SMART -Specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and there is a time limit
