I just want to say to all the upcoming investors out there,"don't get discouraged"? Don't try to do everything on your own. Remember everyone wants to make money. So look for partners to help you. It will relieve a lot of stress and allow you to operate a lot more swiftly. Like Dean says think a little different. Think about ways you and others can raise money together, assign properties,market properties, and most important learn the principles of being a team. Don't get caught with making a lot money, but get caught up with trying to create a system of generating a constant income. There's a big difference.
My main objective is to get people trying these skills is to remember to share.
