EP 60: From Fighting Fires to Full Time Real Estate Investor with Meghan McCallum

Meghan, a 14 year veteran of the fire service, left as a chief to invest in real estate full-time. She currently owns a 43 unit portfolio including a 29 unit apartment building. She calls Chicago, more specifically Evanston, home and lives in her first house hack. She is a buy and hold investor and recently started up two new companies unlike anything in the investment or education fields. Tigon Education was created to eliminate the noise, fluff, and salesmanship in trying to find online education in the realm of real estate. The other company, Liger Investing, is a real estate investment company that will work with the students and investors that come through Tigon Education. Meghan is passionate about educating others and eliminating the noise.

On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Meghan, including:
• Why to stop saying to someone that you want to “pick their brain”
• Learning what “currency” you have to bring to the table
• How to explore what skills you already have to apply to investing
• Importance of risk analysis in investing
• How to choose a mentor
• Why to look beyond the “property” and look to the “market”
• Why you should have 3 plans for your investments
