I am going to be speaking to some young people who are just getting started in the Multifamily industry about how to build a career in Multifamily, working specifically toward leadership. I’d love to know what advice we long timers would give to those fresh to the industry that I can incorporate (and perhaps we can help some newbies out here, too). Lessons learned, things to watch for, nuggets to remember ... bring the good stuff, and let’s groom the future! Thanks in advance!

I love this topic and love helping the newbies! I wrote a blog post about this not too long ago, hoping it might help others who are looking to settle into their career here, and move up in the process:

Don’t ever think that a property is beneath you. Take on the challenges that others won’t. Learn as much as you can from everyone you work with or for.

Take every challenge, tough and otherwise “no one wants this” assignment/job/property/client. If you do it well, you will be so much better prepared, earn a strong reputation and will be leagues ahead of peers.

Under promise and over deliver. Make goals clear and attainable. And of course lead by example. Oh and don’t eat yellow snow.
