Hello everyone!

I am a beginner and having a burning desire  to learn and grow in the real estate investing business. Yes, I'm guilty of wanting to dive into things, but I want to make sure its the right way. So I'm looking for any interest investors that are open to letting me do all the leg work with their guidance and for a small cut for the benefit of having the mentorship.

 Specially I am looking to do rehabs, wholesaling, and rentals.
