1. Regularly attend your local REIA meetings
2. Find investors who are already executing the investment strategy you wish to deploy
3. Ask them to coffee or lunch - Ask good questions about how they got started
4. Ask if they know anyone who is also having success in that line of investing - Ask for introduction.
As you build relationships - You will gain knowledge about the marketplace & the investment strategy - You will also put yourself in a position to develop a relationship with a mentor or identify a coach.
