Hi, I'm Jennifer.... & I'm the creator of Micro Empires
I was a single mother who lost everything; I found myself with no money, no job, no car, no place to live and the sole support for my two children...TWICE. I knew that I had to rebuild again. This time, instead of just looking for a job with a big paycheck, I was going to find a way to grow my money. I envisioned creating a series of income producing “micro empires” that would protect me, my family and my assets. I felt like I was running out of time; I was in my 40s, with zero retirement funds, no assets and no clue how to begin.
After struggling to pay bills and stay above water, I wasn’t about to follow the advice of a blogger in a coffee shop telling me to ‘quit my job’ and ‘follow my dreams’. I also couldn't get what I needed from established billionaires whose advice was too broad. I needed concrete steps that I could easily follow and I didn’t know where to begin or where to turn.
Over the next 4 years, I took tiny, actionable steps that moved me in the direction of these goals. I surrounded myself with the right people and took calculated, educated moves. I did not quit my job. I did not win the lottery. I did not get an inheritance. I manipulated my 401k, I learned about new vehicles for investments, I used my paycheck, I used my HSA, I used the tools I had at hand at the time. I took micro-risks.
At the end of these 4 years, I had over $1.4m in income producing properties, had become a hard money lender and had invested in private technology companies. I realized that I had created my own micro empire!
The goal of the Micro-Empires Podcast is to provide those real life steps and tools to create and grow your micro empires. I will bring in experts, take your questions and share my experiences.
This podcast is about YOU. We all have a story; whether your story is a lot like mine or totally different. Maybe you have a good job, but you know in your heart that you want more. Maybe you just want to expand in the work you’re doing now. Maybe you want to retire early or have more financial security. Maybe you are just getting started and you're 50 and you're worried it's too late. No matter what your story is, there is a path to building your own empire. So... What's your micro empire?
