Where do I start?

2 Replies

Hi guys! My name is Kenneth and I'm 18 years old and an engineering freshman in university. Lately I've been looking for ways to build wealth in the future mainly for the short term. Just recently was I introduced to real estate investing through youtube. I found that it is quite possible to build long term wealth and live off the income generated from rental properties. I am also the type of guy who doesn't want to work for a boss which is why it is quite possible that I may start my own company in the future although I am trying to see whether it is a viable option and if I am able to gain the necessary knowledge and think of an idea good enough to launch a successful business. I would however take a full-time job in order to make money for investing in real estate. It's something where I am responsible for my own actions so I call the shots. I'm really new to real estate and don't really know much at all (a true newbie). So my main question is: where should I start in my education (other than bigger pockets)? There's so much to learn!

Hi @Kenneth Noronha . I wish I had your vision and knowledge at 18 years old.

It's a very personal question as to where to start. Just keep learning as you are. Attend meetings at your local REIA and network. Pick one or two things then start doing.
