Hello! This is my first post here on the Dean Graziosi site. My question is... is real estate right for me? I saw the infomercial late last night, and I thought I'd do a bit of research before buying the book.
Let me give some background information. I just finished my junior year at Penn State University, majoring in Finance. Unable to get an internship for the summer because of the economy (I was thinking of following the traditional path of school,internship or co-op,job), I am currently unemployed this summer. Many doubts clog my mind about what I'll be doing after I finish my Finance degree next year, as the economy might still be down and I may very well still be unemployed. I don't know yet what I want to do in life. I am looking for a career.
The idea of real estate appeals to me. I like the idea of capitalizing on this downturn in the economy and possibly become a millionaire before I leave my 20's, just like Dean Graziosi himself. I learn things quickly, but I'm afraid my age and lack of life experience might hold me back. For example, I've never bought a car without help from my parents, don't know much about real estate terms or how it generally works, etc. But I'd be eager to learn!
A second question popped into my head too. What good is a Finance degree a year from now, if the economy is still bad? I learned of the Matt Larson story who worked without a college degree before getting into real estate. And many deals could be missed out in the next year!! I feel that this decision, although important and should be well thought-out, is very time-sensitive. Would it be worth it to postpone finishing my degree and getting into real estate now?
Thanks! Any advice/opinions are appreciated.
