34: Start in College- A Millennial with 700K Real Estate Holdings with Lindsay Zweber

Today’s episode though is my home girl Lindsay Zweber. Lindsay is one of those mom friends that you just love being around. She is beautiful, sweet, and a hustler. She has her own side business (as well as her and her husband have real estate) and she tells on the show today how they started real estate investing in college, that is totally paying off now. If you have a teenager who is about to go into college, this episode is for you. And before you start thinking that it’s too late for you, she did this all in 10-15 years. So as long as you plan on living another 15 years, this could be you later on in life. But it wasn’t and isn’t always easy for her. She makes choices that some wouldn’t and this is why she is so successful. Successful people always make choices that broke people won’t.

How to Stop Doing All the Housework Yourself

I know what you are thinking….”My husband will never go for this”. I have two theories about this.

ONE, you are not adding enough monetary value to the household income for him to care if you hire it out. He sees that you have extra time on your hands so he sees his job as earning the money and your job as keeping the house. I have been here. When I earned enough that I could say that I was either going to hire it out or divvy it up, he was more willing to take on more. TWO, You are just not having a conversation about expectations. Your expectation is different than his. SO many women forget that they can ask for help because they just get in a grind of doing it all. We take on a martyrdom that we then escape from our lives with wine and girls nights because we feel so overwhelmed by the same life that we insist on being the queen of. I want a marriage that feels respectful in both directions. I want to honor him and him honor me and we both feel valued. So here are my top tips for making this happen.
