Real estate investing conferences are one of the few places where there is no line to the women’s restroom. And while that may be a relief to the female entrepreneurs in attendance, it can also be very discouraging. Why are there so few women playing in the multifamily space? And what can we do to encourage more women to become entrepreneurs and investors?

Through her online bootcamps, #iStartFirst Bossbabes Summit and national speaking engagements, Olenka empowers women to up-level their mindset, overcome their fears and build successful careers.

On this episode, Olenka joins me to explain why there are so few female entrepreneurs and what she is doing about it through #iStartFirst.
