Overcoming Fear and Taking Action with Kevin Galang and Adam Ulery

Updated: Dec 11, 2020

Real estate investing is a great tool to create flexibility and freedom with time and money. However, there are fears that hold many people back from taking action and getting started. Many would-be investors imagine all of the negative scenarios and never take action to get that first deal. Overcoming fear is critical if you want to get started or scale your business or investment portfolio.

Kevin Galang and Adam Ulery are the hosts of the Tech Guys Who Invest podcast. Kevin is a software sales engineer who invests in notes on the side. He hosts the Note Nuggets podcast which shares bite-size tips to invest in notes. Adam is a business consultant for technology firms and also works with Dreamstone investments in Atalanta as an apartment syndicator.

Both Kevin and Adam faced fear when starting out, but they overcame that fear to get started. Start by understanding what you are actually afraid of. Once you understand the issue, you can seek help to overcome that fear and take action. It’s important to clarify your goals and then align your actions to those goals. Kevin and Adam have created a tool to help real estate investors clarify their best fit to make it easier to get started.
