excited about learning, connecting and contributing here!

I'm new to SLC via Orange County, CA, a licensed agent, and small time investor. For now!

I'd love to hear any advice you have on getting the most from BP!

@Brandon TurnerHi @Brandon- thanks for the welcome- my (short) story is I'm a small investor looking to grow and learn. Have a couple rentals now, looking to expand wisely. Not sure if SLC (where I'm currently based) is the place to do it or not. I'm open to learn.

What's your story?

Hey @Jen Bowen, I started investing at 21, made a lot of mistakes, but somehow became a full time investor. Now I hang out on BiggerPockets, like, 23 1/2 hours a day while trying to find time to invest as well :)

you should probably get out a little more! :)

p.s. I've already learned some great stuff in the few minutes I've been here-

found you guys on Itunes podcast- (amazing btw)- perfect timing- we have 2 rentals (basically break even between both) and are looking to learn and grow! Thanks again for this community and the warm welcome

You might want to try Salt Lake Real Estate Investors Association. They meet 2nd Wednesday I think. SLREIA.com I use to attend all the time but now have other obligations on Wednesdays.
