We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Chaise Sanders. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Chaise below.
Chaise, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Let’s start with education – we’d love to hear your thoughts about how we can better prepare students for a more fulfilling life and career.
I think Financial education is extremely important in our journey to adulthood. Financial skills are the foundation to becoming successful. In everything we do money is involved and it is essentially a lifelong journey. We can all benefit from education in financial fundamentals and managing finances.
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers?
Im Chaise Sanders, entrepreneur and owner of Dream Chaisers. We focus on education in real estate. Getting involved in real estate has been a #1 problem solver in my journey. Which is why I’ve chose this path. My Real estate career is where I truly learned the importance of finances. Real estate has put me in a position to educate others on their investments and guide them through the process. It makes me happy to teach someone something they don’t know, something they wont learn in school, something that can change their life. Elementary schools focus mainly on structure.
My story unfortunately starts out the same way as most kids who have grown up in a predominantly black community. I witnessed struggle early on in life. Which is typically a cliche for my culture. Cliche’s are overused stigmas because there is so much truth to the thought. The fact of the matter and the positive thing about struggle is that; struggle nurtures the mindset. Learning to manage your personal finances helps us develop patterns in life. Patterns that will allow us to take care of ourselves and not suffocate in stress, worry and fear. Where there is fear in risk, there is happiness in reward.
The greater outcome is that the best part of who I am is not the beginning or the end. It is my journey. Who ever I can educate and take along with me, will succeed. This is my speciality in what I do and what makes me the most proud. Being Knowledgeable in my industry is what set me aside, how I procure that knowledge and instill that into my clients is what makes my light shine. Dream Chaisers is my personal brand. It is my reputation. It is apart of my name, and I plan to take my business to unlimited abundance.
What’s been the best source of new clients for you?
Almost all of my clients have come from social media. How you engage with your audience and knowing who your audience is has grown to be a vital piece in my line of business.
We often hear about learning lessons – but just as important is unlearning lessons. Have you ever had to unlearn a lesson?
As I mentioned earlier, being a witness to struggle is a huge part of my life that I am unlearning. Struggle is a generational curse I will break. If we learn the proper life skill early on we can live a life that does not require hardship and mishap.
