Are you working a W-2 job that leaves you depleted? Even if you love what you do, it’s likely that the stress of the commute on top of the work itself means you have little left to give to your family at the end of the day, never mind making a significant impact on the world at large. Krista Wilper was tired of being too tired to engage with her husband and sons, so she leveraged multifamily investing to quit her corporate job. And she credits her success to a daily effort to keep her mind in the right place.

Krista is the creator of Synergy Invested LLC, a real estate education and investing platform based in Golden, Colorado. She retired from her executive position at an adult beverage company at the age of 38, walking away from a six-figure income to pursue real estate full time. Now, Krista and her husband own $2.2M in single and multifamily investments, and she is on a mission to help others achieve financial freedom and get control of their time and energy through real estate investing.

On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Krista joins me to explain why she quit a job she loved to pursue real estate, sharing the series of conversations she had with her husband and what she loves most about not working a 9-to-5. She discusses why she took action when so many others don’t and explores why there are so few women in the world of multifamily. Listen in for Krista’s insight on the value of hiring a coach, getting the right support system in place, and training your mind for multifamily investing!
