Hi. I'm coming back to this forum after starting an account a few years ago and then psyching myself out to inaction. One thing I now understand better is the importance of getting involved in the community. So, experienced investors, what kinds of posts do you find galuable from beginners? Beginners, what ways have you found to contribute to the community?
Is there a way to delete this post? I just looked at my old posts from the first time I came to this forum and saw that I posted a very similar post then. I should have checked that first.
Dan dude don't worry about it! Don't psych yourself out! I got on BP yesterday and I've just been commenting on a bunch of forum posts. I'd recommend doing that. Maybe start a blog! I feel like you've got a pretty good story, maybe you can tell about how you psyched yourself out and then what made you get back into RE. I'd read it. If you start it msg me a link!
Anyways, I'd recommend reading some books. Check my profile or google "Bigger Pockets Recommended Books" for some suggestions. Just listen to 30 mins a day on Audible. You'll get so much knowledge. What are you looking to do? Why did you decide to get into RE? Shoot me a message and we can connect!
Best of luck with everything!
Ask questions! That is always a great way to contribute and learn at the same time :)
I wish you could delete old posts (but you can’t that I know of). People will sometimes contact me about old stuff I wrote that I no longer agree with! I’m not sure that jumping in on the forums is going to help you get started. Readying books, networking, and listening to podcasts were all huge for me. So maybe just use it as a way to hold yourself accountable and jump in whenever there are things in here that relate to books you’re read. Nothing beats doing your first deal though. So get one. What’s the worst that could happen?
Thanks all. I've been doing broad-based research every day and I will get more involved as I learn more.
