Any advice to other women in your industry?
Find a great mentorship that doesn’t just tell you how to do something but show you as well even after it’s over. First, making sure that any program you sign up is really worth your money. Just because it isn’t over a huge sum of doesn’t negate that coach isn’t valuable. Lastly, facing your fear of putting yourself in the public’s eye with a strong support system or spiritual foundation to help move you along.

Any advice to other women in your industry?
Keep going is what I tell myself everyday. I’ve reinvented myself a couple of times and each time it gets sweeter. Love yourself enough everyday to not give up and realize your purpose is bigger than you. Having a support system is vital and being able to lean on people who genuinely care about you is okay to do. Last, not but not least, take your time and fully enjoy the journey. Smile, laugh and have fun! God is always in control.

She also provides jobs for dozens of contractors and sub-contractors every year.
Please tell our audience about your brand.
Attiyah: The Real Estate Reset is the premier real estate investing community for women who want to build wealth with real estate. As the CEO and fearless leader of The Real Estate Reset, I add over $1 million dollars worth of real estate to my portfolio annually. The Real Estate Reset has two umbrellas. Investing and Mentorship. The company acquires distressed properties and breathes life into them. The result is getting rid of blight, creating a beautiful home for families, new jobs for dozens of people and building wealth for my own family. It’s a win for the community, win for my tenants and a win for the people I love the most. As others watched my growth they called on me to teach them how to do the same thing and The Real Estate Reset mentorship was born. In my signature class I teach others “How to build a million dollar Real Estate portfolio in one year” just like I do. Reset Nation is a place where anyone who wants to invest in real estate but doesn’t know how to get started can come and get a clear plan of action for building generational wealth. The community has collectively purchased tens of millions of dollars in real estate.

Please introduce yourself to readers:
My name is Bridget Phifer. I am a wife and mother of two. I am a licensed REALTOR, business consultant, empowerment coach, motivational speaker, and a licensed minister. I have been in Real Estate for over 20 years, a business owner and consultant for more than 23 years, and a preacher of the Bible for more than 25 years. From the age of 6 years old, I knew I wanted to minister across the world. For a while, I pastored and preached from a pulpit. I loved all the lives I was able to touch. However, back in 2008, when the Real Estate market crashed here in the United States, it affected me in a way I didn't see coming. My family and I went from a 7,000 square foot home to no home at all and living in a shelter. We had to shut our church down, and I had to figure out who I was all over again. During this time, I realized that ministry was more than church walls. It could take place anywhere and in multiple different ways.
I discovered that ministry could be used in any business; therefore, EVERY BUSINESS I've owned became my ministry. I made myself available to help people using whatever talent I had inside. I found that the more people you help get what they want, eventually you get what you want. I am now the CEO of www.livingbetterlife.org. I am dedicated to furthering the issues of economic stability for minorities and women everywhere. I am not a stranger to struggle however victory and strength have been my companions. Over the years, I have helped many individuals find the right solution for their lives in personal empowerment, financial stability, and spiritual growth.
