How entrepreneurs can deal with anxiety and burnout

How entrepreneurs can deal with anxiety and burnout

Life of entrepreneurs and launch of a new business are often romanticised in media. We see ready products, read stories of success and rarely discuss the struggles every founder inevitably goes through.

Anxiety, burnout and a drop in motivation are more common among entrepreneurs than one might think. Early stages of business are usually full of uncertainty and require a strong character to go through them successfully. Low points, however, are not the fanciest topics to talk about, and very few business leaders would admit them publicly. But it is exactly when entrepreneurs need support the most – when they are still at the beginning of their journey, yet maybe just a step away from their biggest breakthrough.

Entrepreneurial burnout can either turn into a life-long regret or into a refreshingly new launching pad. It is not the lack of challenges but how we deal with them what makes a success story.

I asked fellow online entrepreneurs what they do when anxiety and lack of motivation take over, and here is the advice they gave me:

  1. Change your surroundings

Whether you work from home, in an office or a co-working space, most likely the majority of your time is spent at one spot. Try to change your environment – go to a coffee shop, a library, a park, or if possible, even to another country. Simply a different window view can break your habitual thinking pattern and show a new perspective on current matters.

2. Remember where you’ve started and how far you’ve come

It’s easy to lose motivation when you feel that there is no progress in your work and you don’t see tangible results right away. You should never forget, however, where you’d started from and how much you accomplished since. Not all accomplishments can be “calculated” – it can be simply invaluable experience and personal growth. Besides, never ignore the power of failure.

3. Spend time with people who inspire you

Humans are social beings, and even introverts can benefit from breaking their solitude. Try to surround yourself with people who are motivated, driven and who believe in themselves. You will notice how contagious their energy is.

4. Allow yourself a break

You can take some unplanned time off and spend it at home with the family, head into the wild or do whatever feels right. The most important part is to “switch off” – to pause your work routine for a while or to delegate it. A break will let you look at the same things with a fresh mind.

5. Write down WHY you are doing what you are doing

There is always a reason why entrepreneurs embark on their journey. It can be a desire to be your own boss, a search for flexibility, an urge to get to infinite earnings and not be capped by an average salary, or simply a desire to make this world a better place. Remembering your WHY is a very powerful motivation boost

  1. Learn meditation

Latest research shows that meditation boosts mental well-being and improves focus and self-control. Meditation is something I have personally benefited tremendously from, and it is how I start my daily morning routine.

7. Disconnect regularly

Whatever your business niche is, most likely you spend 90% of your day in front of the screens of all sizes. Being constantly online brings a lot of unnecessary clutter and noise in your head. It can demotivate, prompt to compare yourself to others and simply take you off track. Disconnecting even for one full day can become a needed productivity boost and give you the energy that you so much in need of.

8. Exercise and spend time outdoors

Exercise has the power to reduce stress and refresh your mind. Moreover, physical activities release endorphins, which create positive feeling in the body and boost self-esteem. There is a reason why highly successful people include sports activities in their daily routines.

Growing your own business is not an easy, but is the most rewarding journey. It is inevitable and normal to have “low points” and experience lack of motivation at times. It is the way you deal with those challenges that will determine your success. Luckily, the secret to staying motivated, focused and productive can be much simpler than you think. Make time for yourself and your personal well-being – you’ll be surprised how much your business will benefit from it.

big time funding

Our Broker Dealer Clients Looking to Fund $10m – $100m+ Quality Deals – Public or Private

We have several Broker Dealer clients who are looking for quality deals to fund in the $10,000,000 minimum to $100,000,000+ maximum range. 

Can be an existing public or private company.

Do you have a quality deal? Our network of Broker Dealers covers all sectors of business so any quality deal will be considered.

This funding is best used for expansion capital candidates – existing profitable companies, any industry, that are making from say $2m – $5m a year on up that need $10 – $100+ million to expand. (Not sure if they will do films, Cannabis related or foreign companies. However, we have a several of these deals in front of them right now so I will know shortly.)

The requirement is that they go public in the US with us (If an existing US public company, then we would restructure their company rather than take it public) and use our proprietary structure. We also have another giant firm that will uplist any qualifying candidates to NASDAQ or NYSE etc. in a year or so after I take them public when they can meet the qualifications of the higher exchange. Optionally if they meet those requirement right away, we can go there first.

Please let’s start with a few paragraphs teaser summarizing the salient points. 

This is very important.

Our broker dealers get hundreds of submittals a day and won’t click on links or open 30 page business plans to figure out a company. If people won’t present the information in the way they want it, they simply won’t read it. They must first get a short summary they can read quickly and if interested, they will then click on links etc. to read more.

A short summary should state most relevant details such as:

  • What your business does
  • How long in business
  • Management’s experience
  • What your income has been the last couple of years and currently
  • What the profit is
  • What you need money for
  • How much funding you need

An example would be:

“ABC co. is a 3 year old blockchain entertainment company with a new way to revolutionize payments in the music industry. They are currently a private company but willing to go public as part of funding. Management has 30 years experience as CEO of a major label. Current income is $500,000 USD per month ($3,000,000 income during 2018, $2,000,000 in 2017) with projections (if they receive $10,000,000 capital injection) to hit $10,000,000 in 2019, $20,000,000 in 2020 and $40,000,000 in 2021. Profit runs at about 20% of revenues.

They seek a $10,000,000 investment. $2,000,000 to build out the rest of their blockchain technology and $8,000,000 for marketing over the next 3 years.”

This is what is needed and if you do not supply this, the information will not be passed to the broker dealer as it makes us look bad. If we feel our Broker Dealers would be interested in your project will will send it on. The next step would be an executive summary. If they are still interested, we can then proceed to a full business plan. (If you supply the above short summary you may also attach executive summary (one pager) and business plan so they have all the information to inspect if they are interested.

If you send us a full business plan upfront with a lazy request to find the executive summary within the business plan or links to SEC filings, etc. without stepping through the above, they won’t read it.

Let us know if you have anything.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Are there any upfront costs? Or What is the cost?

A: Some of our broker dealers do not charge any upfront or due diligence fees. Some do. We present to the Broker Dealers who charge nothing first.

Of course you will have to pay for legal and professional fees to go public. That is usually in the cost range of $100,000. Sometimes we can take a portion of this out of the back end (after the money raise) and sometimes we can provide an investor who will cover the fees. However, keep in mind public vehicles sell for $500,000 cash + stock in the next deal if you fail to raise money or don’t succeed for any reason. So you will not lose any money on the legal and professional fees even if you are unsuccessful in raising money. 

Q: What criteria needs to be met in order to go public in the US?

A: Everyone always reads about Apple, Microsoft and Amazon type companies which are the top tier of investment banking and give a false impression. On the Emerging tier of public companies the criteria is very low:

There are NO income or profit criteria, but 

  • You must be actively engaged in business. (You can’t have a business plan that says we will start once you get $10m )
  • You must have free trading stock available for sale on the stock market (that is what we do – we create the public company requirements for you)
  • and It is best (though not required) to have audited financials. There are two levels of the emerging market – one requires audited financial and SEC filings thereof, and the other doesn’t. We prefer to take you public with the audited financials requirement satisfied as it opens up more funding possibilities for you. 

The timing is thus: The funding broker usually likes to say you will file to go public within 120 days of the closing of the funding. However, that is flexible. We have another firm where the owner sold his last deal for $500m and because of that he is going to try to do the same and requested an 18 month filing requirement and the broker said okay because of his track record. He might just sell the company quickly for a huge profit and everyone will make money. And we had another where the company asked for 180 days and they said fine.

After we start the process of filing to go public, it can still take 6 months to a year or even more until you are actually quoted on the stock market.

Q: I have a business for sale, could your financing be used to complete the sale?

A: Yes, we are doing something similar now. We’d have to set up a public company as described above. We would raise money in a private placement to buy the properties. If you’re interested, submit a short summary as requested above.

Dr. Jacqueline Nguyen, or Dr. J as she is affectionately known. She is a distinguished clinical pharmacist and a graduate of University of Southern California School of Pharmacy (USC). From working as a pharmacist for over a decade, she has learned that a successful clinical pharmacist needs to have certain essential attributes, including attention to detail, genuine care for patients, the ability to understand a patient’s desires, experience and continuing education to care for a patient’s overall health, and an uncompromising commitment to stay abreast with cutting-edge medical treatments and alternative natural treatments. Based on this understanding, Dr. J incorporates all these elements into her daily practice.

 Dr. J recently launched her CBD oil product line under the Ensohara banner. (www.ensohara.com).. She is currently launching a branded line of CBD cookies.

www.ensohara.com (CBD products)


Dr. Nguyen’s statement on why she became interested in Cannabis and CBD:

I was interested in Cannabis or the CBD Hemp movement five years ago due to the fact that I have so many patients who have cancer and I wanted to look for something that is natural and effective to help with cancer cells. I discovered that the FDA holds the patent on a cannabis and CBD component that it is the most powerful neuro-protectant and antioxidant . Therefore, I knew that I am on the right track and that there are many clinical studies to back up the medical cannabis and CBD hemp oil to help over 200medical conditions. In June 2018, I can officially say that CBD can treat diseases, since the FDA approved the first drug named Epiduolex to treat two rare forms of epilepsy in children.

At first, I was having a toughest time to share with my TV show’s audience about medical marijuana and CBD Hemp Oil, since the general public is not very accepting with regard to this topic. I was being ridiculed and was prevented to share information about this product on television. It was such a lonely road ahead, but I knew that I would make it if I am persistent and dedicated to my beliefs. Now, I am one of the most sought after health professional that know the dosage and treatment regimen for many medical conditions with CBD based products from tincture, capsule, cream, cookies, candies, and gummies for kids, etc.

GiftAMeal Selected as Top 25 for Startup of the Year SXSW Competition

For those of you that don’t know, I am the founder and CEO of a startup called GiftAMeal. GiftAMeal helps provide a meal to someone in need each time a user takes a photo at a participating restaurant while providing valuable marketing services to restaurants. We were recently invited to participate in the 2019 Startup of the Year SXSW Competition. Startup of the Year is powered by Established, a consultancy focused on helping organizations with their innovation, startup, and communication strategies. In participating, we joined the ranks of great companies that have passed through their events over the past decade such as GrubHub, ShearShare, Maxwell Health, Groupon and Uber.


Leading up to the competition we were incredibly excited and ready to build on a great year of growth. In the last year we’ve raised an investment round, won an Arch Grant and numerous other awards, and grown the business in a huge way. We are always excited about the opportunity to share our journey and scaling plan.

We fast-pitched in a lightning round on the rooftop of the Startup of the Year House at Maggie Mae’s on March 10. Our CMO, Jacob Mohrmann, said, “This was a great opportunity to get the word out about GiftAMeal to potential partners and customers. We’ve grown so much in the past year, drastically increasing our restaurant base, users, and revenue. We were excited to showcase GiftAMeal in front of this global network of investors and influencers, as well as the global startup community.

Presenting at SXSW was an incredible experience. The conversations with other entrepreneurs were enlightening as we talked about our experiences and traded advice for how we have tackled similar opportunities and challenges. GiftAMeal was received very well and many judges who run accelerator programs across the country came up to me afterwards to tell me about their programs for potential future funding! Though we weren’t selected to be in the Top 5 at Startup of the Year, being in the Top 25 was an honor and seeing the startups in the Top 5 that had raised over $1M and already had amazing traction helped provide me with the vision of our potential. While at SXSW, I also was able to listen to amazing speakers like Guy Kawasaki, a marketing specialist who created a lot of Apple’s early success alongside Steve Jobs. I also attended a panel on The Future of Food to hear what the trends were with agriculture and restaurants and think through how GiftAMeal fits into the bigger picture. After the competition and the speakers, I had some terrific one-on-one meetings with Andy Moore (Senior Manager, Business Operations at Main Street Hub — acquired by GoDaddy in 2018), Stephen Garten (CEO & Founder of Charity Charge), and Laurence Mittelbronn (Member Engagement, Innovation and Membership at the National Restaurant Association). Learning about their experiences was so helpful and they were all very willing to help support me and GiftAMeal. I leave SXSW with ideas bouncing around my brain, new relationships developed, and a boost of inspiration for GiftAMeal to reach its full potential.

Lose Weight THIS WAY


Sora Vernikoff-No Diet, Weight-Loss Coach, Best-Selling Author, International Speaker

Welcome to a no diet, weight-loss system that will let you eat what you want, stop when you want and become forever thin and healthy and all without having to diet.  In this article, you’ll be learning why diets don’t work, why you think more about food than you’d like to, what particular foods are managing your weight challenge and then how to eat and stop yourself for a non-dieted weight loss.

So for me it started over 20 years ago.  Around that time, I taught very challenging 4th graders in East New York, Brooklyn and I was as usual-always dieting.  However, on this particular day I  looked at the sea of faces sitting in front of me and asked myself, “Sora, why do these challenging kids listen to you but food which doesn’t walk, talk or do all those “other” things you can’t stop thinking about and you can’t stop eating.

It was at that moment that I decided to stop dieting, eat the foods that I really wanted and to also journal all my eating experiences to find out exactly why I couldn’t stop thinking about food all day.  What happened was amazing. I took off 25 pounds that I’ve kept off to this day and on the day that I reached my non-dieted weight-loss goal, I knew that I could transfer my classroom “management” techniques to food “management” techniques and Sora’s Weight Loss “Management” Program was born.

But before we talk about how to eat what you want (more pizza and chocolate), stop when you want and become forever thin and healthy let’s take a look at exactly why diets don’t work and exactly what kinds of food thoughts are causing you your “overweight challenge.”

So what is a diet and why do 97% of dieters regain their dieted-off weight within three years of losing it.

Well, diets don’t work because a diet is a group of rules created by “other” people.  These other people tell you what to have, how much to have and even when to have what.  In addition, the diet tells you not to pay attention to your own food-thoughts.  That it’s important to ignore your own food-thoughts because it’s how you think about food that brought you to this diet in the first place.

So you go on a diet, and you’re Good, Good, Good for a while which means that you’re following the rules of your diet and that you’re feeling really proud of yourself.  But then (and for each dieter it’s different) you need to go off your diet and have the foods and the amounts that you really want. So you Diet “Overeat” or Diet “Binge” (dependent on what you call it) and of course, beat yourself up after you’ve done that.  But Diet “overeating” or Diet “bingeing” is a two-sided behavior.  On the one hand you took back the control from the diet to have what you really wanted but on the other hand you didn’t stay on your diet.  So what happens next, you go back on your diet, knowing full well that there’s another “overeating” or “overbingeing” experience lurking in the back of your mind.  Diets simply don’t work because they’re not your rules!

So now before I teach you how to use The “Green” Technique and how to be able to have any food that you really want and know before your first bite when you will be able to stop yourself, let’s identify the two types of food thoughts are might be causing your weight challenge.

Those two types of food-thoughts are called The Inside “Food” Caller and The Outside “Food” Caller.  The Inside “Food” Caller is any food, gum, cold-drink or hot drink that you’re body lets you know that it wants and The Outside “Food” Caller is when you “see” food, a type of gum, a cold-drink or a hot-drink and decide that you want it.  In other words those food signals call to you from “outside of you” and not from “inside of you.

Sora’s Weight-Loss “Management” Program says that it’s because you don’t have the choice to stop thinking about any one of your Inside or Outside “Food”  Thoughts when you decide to or any combination of your Inside or Outside “ food-thoughts” when you decide to that you’re food-thought challenged and as a result, you’re feeling stuck in a weight problem.

Well, now it’s time to learn how to use The “Green” Technique in Sora’s Weight-Loss “Management” Program that will let you consistently eat and stop yourself for a non-dieted and healthy weight loss.

So let’s say that your favorite food is Pizza.  Pizza is the food that you really want.  So in Program, you have the pizza in front of you and then you have to ask yourself two questions before you eat it.  You have to ask yourself, “How much is enough?” and “How much is too much?”

Then you need to actually set aside the amount that you decided was too much from the amount that you decided was enough and then you’re ready to eat the amount that you decided was enough. 

Then after you’ve eaten the amount that you decided was enough, you have to glance at your Marker and that confirms that you’ve eaten and stop yourself.  Your Marker is your “I can eat and stop myself visual aid.”

Now if you still want more pizza from your Marker, then you have to again ask yourself, “How much is enough?” and “How much is too much?”, again actually set aside your new Marker and then you can eat the amount that you decided was enough. Then again, you need to look at your left over Marker and again, you just confirmed that you could eat and stop yourself.

So  it’s by consistently using The “Green” Technique that you will start thinking less about food (don’t you always stop thinking less about what you have “enough of”! ) and over time you’ll reach your non-overweight mind and your matching non-overweight body for a non-dieted and  healthy weight loss. The key here being “non-dieted!”

Sora Vernikoff is a No Diet, Weight-Loss Coach at www.nodieting.net who healed herself of compulsive overeating and has since helped hundreds of unhappy dieters do the very same thing.  Sora teaches her program to private clients both online and offline and her recent book Eat What You Want! Stop When You Want! A No-Diet, Weight-Loss Program became a #1 Amazon Best Seller when it was published last July. In addition, it recently became the 2018 Distinguished Favorite in The New York City Big Book Award Contest.

Business Lessons and a dead dad


This past December marked two years since the death of my dad and favorite human, Tom Hilb.

My dad taught me more about organization development than any book or theorist ever could. He did all of it without ever reading a book on leadership or taking a course that I know of.

Owner of Heritage House Fabrics, which he built into a multi-million dollar business in a short period of time, he was skilled at acquisitions and brought several companies into the Heritage family during its ten-year run. Winner of the “Man for All Seasons” award, bestowed upon him by a former employer turned customer, he was called “A Valued Employee, A Valued Supplier, An Incredible Friend- Our Man for All Seasons.” He consulted for companies across the industry and even outside of it. Even his competitors had nice things to say about him.

Despite this traditional success, it was his steadfast nature and his love for food, family and the color pink that he was most revered for.

The day of my dad’s celebration of life, the warehouse and offices of a company he no longer owned were closed because so many folks wanted to pay their respects. It’s not exactly closing the stock market, but in Concord, NC, it’s pretty darn close.

Tom Hilb taught me so much about how to live well so I could do good. Here are just 7 of my favorite lessons as I miss him today:

Dad knew every client’s, every supplier’s, every employee’s, even his pharmacist’s and cell phone provider’s and 12+ doctors’ kid’s names, ages and interests. If they didn’t have children, he found some other way to connect. The check-in process was always the first step before any business took place.

Another way he bonded with people: food.

He was known for his love of food and made sure to be a host in this way. He even had a bottle of Turkish liquor at my sister’s wedding available as a gesture for his Turkish friends of many years. He knew what dietary restrictions and preferences people had and knew every greasy spoon to five star restaurant. People called him their personal Zagat for his five-star rating system on the back of cards he had carefully collected in plastic sheets organized by city.

You ask anyone, and they would have their own favorite Hilb food story.

My father made it clear that family came first for him and it should be the same for his employees. People knew this to be part of the culture at Heritage and chose fit based on this.

Fairness was another value he held deeply, along with loyalty.

These permeated the way he did business over the years, and people who knew him appreciated and expected that values guided his decisions. He did what he needed to be successful, but he was known for his predictability.

I cannot remember my dad missing the opportunity to send a baby gift or appropriate condolences on the rare occasion he could not be in attendance in person at a mitzvah, a wedding, a funeral, an award show.

And despite his work travel and my own parents being divorced, he made a point of attending dance recitals, birthdays, honor society inductions and the like.

Even through his illness, he found a way to my sister’s wedding from North Carolina to New Jersey, despite having broken his hip that very week — and held on to attend my graduate school luncheon, even buying a new jacket for the occasion.

He was this way in his work life for employees, clients and friends alike. They also knew they could come to him for sound advice whether their business was failing, doing well or ready to grow. He was just likable and paternal.

This is the quality I find most rare (and valuable) today.

Tom Hilb retained the same team for as long as I can remember once he bought his own company. He also worked with people he met along the way as a child and young adult.

Building trust is a long process and something I could speak to at length. One major takeaway: he never sugar-coated or kept folks in the dark.

Throughout the years of taking trips to the office as a little girl and even later when I worked there, I always remember laughter in the office.

For example, we loved to pick on my dad for his neurotic ways and the long talks of what would be for lunch, taking bets on how long it would be before he would spill directly on his notorious “spot.” He never made it through a meal without a stain in the EXACT same place! He had a distinct voice and some common catch phrases and gimmicks.

When my father would attend one of the sales shows every year, he and two friends in the industry would find the most outrageous fabric they could, and have it made into pants. This became something they were known for.

Every year crowds came to see “the pants guys.” It was a gimmick and a sales boost. One of many ways they made the work more enjoyable.

My dad had the most hideous floral fabric you can imagine to push out sometime in the 1980’s. So naturally, he did what anyone would do, and he found a seamstress to make him an elaborate floral wedding gown. Think: a ton of crinoline, huge bows, and matching veil. He wore this into the sales meeting in an attempt to unload several bolts.

A large photograph of my dad grinning in said dress proudly hung in his home for many years.

I had made the incorrect assumption that he pulled it off. Then, on one of our last days together — during a commercial of Matlock or Blue Bloods undoubtedly — he shouted at me, “No!! that didn’t work! Are you kidding?” He was so proud of this epic failure. I was blown away and had to grin to myself. This felt like his final and biggest lesson of all.

When it was finally time to sort through his belongings, my sisters and I decided to have a draft. This framed image was my first round pick.

Somehow it seemed that Dad knew before others what they were capable of. He was one of the most neurotic men you would ever meet and could micromanage at times.

But, if he trusted you, he wanted you to buck him. He liked to see you stand on your own two feet.

As a boss, I would hear him demand near perfection and get it. Everyone knew to do it right the first time.

As a father, uncle and friend, it was pretty much the same. In fact, everyone knew so well his high level of expectations that they sometimes liked to mess with him for sport. That was fun too. Especially if you tried to bring soda into the living room or food into his car. God help you if you opened the fridge more than once when putting condiments away. Everyone knows this is done in one fell swoop of the refrigerator door.

From him, I learned: When you set an expectation high and you yourself are prepared to remain a consistent course, people will rise to meet it and you.

When I look at these lessons I realize that none of them are about the numbers or the facts of business. Of course, this is important. Our business accountant will tell you that he was always impressed with how my dad paid attention to what the numbers told us, and this is hugely significant in business. Our family lawyer will tell you dad never had a single complaint of ethics against him, which is actually pretty rare.

Despite working in two other fields, he also knew his industry. It was in his DNA: My grandfather and his father before him in Germany were in textiles.

Running a business is an art as much as a science. It isn’t the time at your desk any more than it is the hours at long dinners or making a quick happy birthday call.

Business, like anything in life, is all about relationships, and I am so grateful I got to spend a lifetime apprenticing with a great master.

What Type of Investor do I want to be When I Grow Up: Active Investor or Passive Investor?

Let me define a couple of terms before I unpack my opinions. Firstly, for the sake of this article, “landlord / active investor” is defined as an investor who purchased a property as an investment and plans to actively manage it, on the flip side, a “passive investor” is someone who invests in someone else’s managed properties (we will use an example of limited partner investing in a syndication). There are benefits and complexities to every real estate investment opportunity, so if you are exploring various options, I would like to share lessons-learned from my extensive experience as a real estate investment entrepreneur with years of experience as a landlord in Philly, North Jersey and in Miami, as well as both, an active and a passive investor in multiple commercial real estate syndications.

Tread lightly through your decision tree because you may just end up with more than you bargained for. Allow me to provide you the pros and cons of becoming a landlord / active investor vs. a passive investor.

So, you wish to be the Lord of the Land
There are many benefits to being a landlord; a landlord is basically a businessman or business woman. The landlord makes important everyday operational decisions from expenses to lease terms – you decide if a prospective tenant is acceptable and what rent the market can bare; as well as making strategic decisions such as the level of renovations and when to refinance or sell the property.

In short, you are the boss, and that alone is terrifically rewarding!

When I first dived into real estate investing, I bought a couple of properties; one in Philly and another in Miami. Why did I buy rental properties, you ask? Well, the most appealing prospect for me to become a landlord was income. This is certainly the main reason why most investors want to be a landlord. When the stars line up, and nothing needs repairing and the tenant pays on time, you can count on a decent slice of income that covers the property mortgage, while the property appreciates in value. Even more so, if you own the investment property then it’s an even better prospect.

Be careful, however, because at the initial sight, being a landlord looks to be fairly easy; it’s awesome that you get rent money from tenants every month for not doing much. In fact, the control that you exert over your active real estate commission is directly proportional to the time that you will need to spend in managing the activities related to your investments. Well, I can tell you first hand that being a landlord is actually intricate, laborious, and requires to be able to quickly understand legal and financial landlord-tenant requirements and ramifications.
You have to be ready to treat your rental properties like a business, which means that you will be required to make time for to either hire a management company or personally take care of business needs, such as painting, cleaning, and showing your rental property to prospective tenants (this is what I did many times to save on expenses). Don’t be too surprised to walk into your vacated investment property to find it in shambles only after a year it was refurbished. I found that any miscalculation on renovation costs or rental prices of property caused a reduced profit or a loss altogether. The issue is that for a landlord, this profit reduction or loss is much more deeply felt than by passive investors since the loss is spread around the group that hopefully has a sponsor that can boast past performance of risk mitigation.

Sooner or later you also will have to take legal action against a tenant, at least I know I had to, and that’s what many of my colleagues tell me as well. My current tenants are awesome, however, more times than not, my tenants were far from that. Even after vetting tenants through credit checks, I was surprised that most tenants (across wide salary ranges and social circles) had to be reminded to pay their rent, and others were just not dependable or trustworthy at all. I recall instances when tenants were two to three months late with their rent.

So you would like to sit back and watch your money grow?
As I mentioned in the beginning of my article, a passive investor is analogous to being a limited partner in the real estate investment. You and other passive investors invest your capital with a knowledgeable and skilled syndicator. Only the syndicator has direct control over the business plan of the investment, so as a limited partner one of your responsibilities is to trust the syndicator. But your primary responsibility above all else is to evaluate the knowledgeable, professional and qualified syndicator based on your mutual interests before ever investing with them. In my previous articles, I listed aspects of passive investments that you need to consider, such as a preferred return for example, where you will receive a return on your investment first to make sure that the syndicator has a financial incentive to give their best effort to the investment property.

Another terrific benefit of passive investing over active is that passive investing is relatively stress-free. You are not the landlord, so you don’t have to know about daily issues that constantly crop up, much less worry about mitigating them. As I said above, all you need to do is to carefully evaluate the syndicator and the investment. From there on, your post-investment responsibility is to read the monthly or quarterly project updates.

The best deal of all is that your risk as a passive investor is hugely minimized. Passive investing is generally a widely used investment system, and the particular passive investment that you will consider will be executed by a syndicator what has a proven success track record. How do I know this? Because you just finished reading my article, and I am certain that you took every point in it under careful consideration!

What path will you set on: Active or Passive Investing?

Only you know your financial circumstances, your need for control and aversion to risk, as well as your investment goals. As an active investor, you will spend lots of time on your investment and, don’t kid yourself; you will be stressed while managing your investment, but the skills and experience that you will learn will be invaluable. The vast variety of investors, however, will tend to invest passively, partly due to lack of time or desire to manage the investment 24×7; but in reality, because there is no real need to since their investment and their syndicator will manage the investment for them.
