I'm very new to real estate investing. I'm currently a stay-at-home mother to three young children. I am just about finished reading Profit From Real Estate Right Now, and based on what I'd read and researched, we (my husband & I) decided to go ahead and join the Real Estate Success Academy. That took an incredible leap of faith on my husband's part, and now it's up to me to prove that it was the right move.
I'm working diligently on my lessons and reading & researching as much as I can. I am the type of person that really likes to have all the information up front and THEN take action, so it's a bit daunting to me to consider starting a business, initiating a marketing & advertising plan and setting up the infrastructure (= more money!) before I really know all there is to know to make myself successful.
For me, this is a long-term investment of my time and money. I'll admit I'm feeling quite nervous and a bit overwhelmed by all that I am reading and learning. At the same time, I feel excited and energized and I have faith that with a little work (and a little luck!), I will be successful.
If anyone would like to share tips with regard to building a Power Team, I'm all ears. I currently only know one person that is even remotely associated with the real estate business (a friend who is a Realtor). I've been looking into local Real Estate Investing Clubs, thinking that might be a good way to network and build my team.
Thanks for reading! Watch out world - I'm out to make some money .
