The real estate coaching industry is a noisy place. Gurus, agents, and coaches compete to sell their brand of get-rich-quick training. It’s a climate that encourages new investors students to take big risks, leverage to the hilt, and do as many deals as possible, fast. As a result, many fledgling landlords seek deals without assessing the quality of what they’re buying. There is a real lack of resources that espouse calm.

Mindful Landlord offers a middle way through this noise. Focusing on questions such as how, what for, how much, and why, author Terrie Schauer takes a holistic view of creating financial freedom through real estate investing.
