Join Steve Fierros and his co-host, Matt Callihan, as they chat with David Toupin about his experiences as a top millennial real estate investor. David is the co-founder of Obsidian Capital and the CEO of Real Estate Lab, who started investing in real estate during his college years at the young age of 20. He also shares with us strategies and factors you need to consider as an early investor, misconceptions about real estate, and the importance of nurturing your relationships in the industry. If you’re someone who’s afraid to get started investing in real estate, this episode is for you!

Let Go of Your Limiting Beliefs

Many people are hesitant to invest in real estate because they doubt if they’re capable enough or do not have enough money to start. David’s inspiring journey proves that you can start investing in properties as early as 20 and still a college student. You don’t need to have a lot of money; you can apply for loans or get into syndications. Stop overanalyzing about the things that could go wrong; instead, just dive into it and pursue your goals. Your limiting beliefs will only become true if you do not take action. A lot of people waste their years doubting themselves and the opportunities they have. David had many failed businesses and mistakes in his early years in real estate, but he didn’t stop and let those overwhelm him. He dedicated himself to learning and gaining experiences. Today, he has developed 1,000 apartments worth more than $100M and a real estate company with over $50M real estate holdings!

Start overcoming your limiting beliefs because you’re only sabotaging the successful future you could have. If you start accepting these as truths, they will become your reality. Although it is not easy, it is better than having regrets in the future about the things you wished you did. Moreover, become comfortable with failing. When you combine failures with hard work, you’ll eventually achieve success. Prove yourself wrong, disregard those doubts, and get started on working hard to achieve your dreams.
