Valerie Shirah is a wife, mother of three, and entrepreneur. She’s also the co-founder of the Streamline team and host of Wealth by Choice Podcast.
When her husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 35, she realized that they would not be able to depend solely on his W2 income. At that time, She was a stay-at-home mom homeschooling three kids and had no prior experience in real estate or building businesses.
It was an eye-opening moment for both of them—one that led them down a path towards learning more about real estate investing, networking—and ultimately building businesses from scratch. Since then, they overcame their limiting mindsets and began to see how many things in their lives were now changing for the better.
On their RE investing journey, She discovered the power of virtual assistants and is now passionate about helping other investors manage their time and experience massive growth through the use of virtual assistants.
In this episode, Valerie shared her and her husband’s transformative journey, emphasizing the power of the right approach, the difference between making and earning money, and the value of collaboration with Virtual Assistants (VAs). Her practical insights offer valuable lessons for personal and professional growth.
