Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

031: Breaking Free of Limiting Beliefs as a Real Estate Investor with Matt Jones


Our educational system teaches us how to fit in a box of how to be good employees. But why become somebody else’s passive income, when we can be the ones to create it? 

Whether that’s through investing in businesses or stocks, or real estate, this is not rocket science. It takes persistence, hard work, education and surrounding yourself with the right people if you truly want to achieve your goals and get to the next level. However, none of that matters if you’re not in it for the long haul – and you don’t have the right mindset. It’s time to break free of your limiting beliefs as a real estate investor.

In today’s episode, Jonathan speaks with real estate investor Matt Jones, CEO of Hawking Capital. Matt specializes in both small and large multifamily investments. He’s an apartment building syndicator and also the co-host of Pillars of Wealth Creation podcast with Todd Dexheimer. Matt wrote the Book About Real Estate. It covers over 20 books about the full spectrum of real estate investing so you can read through it and decide which particular avenue is right for you, and then go with that versus trying to do it all.

From managing group homes to figuring out how to house hack a triplex, down to syndication and senior assisted living, Matt shares his journey and the lessons he learned along the way.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Using your strengths to your advantage

  • The value of hiring a property manager

  • Adding value to others first

  • The power of joining masterminds

  • Understanding syndication

  • What the senior assisted living market is like

  • Getting on the next level by being around big investors

  • Why real estate investing is within your reach

  • The importance of believing you can achieve your goals
