I would like to say that today i made my 2nd step forward. The reason i say "2nd" is because I made up my mind a long time ago and have committed myself to studying, saving, and preparing myself for investment opportunities. Thats step 1. Today I went to the bank to get a pre-approval letter. I filled out the loan app form and waiting til tomorrow to see if i get approved for an FHA loan. Hopefully i do.
