I believe there are three types of Real Estate investors.

1. The Gifted

2. Ones who acquired the skill/knowledge

3. The person hoping for the best, with no knowledge or experience

Ive met a lot of 2s and 3s. But have yet to meet that gifted Real Estate Investor. Which one are you?

Now that you mention it, Brian, I have yet to meet that #1 myself. I've heard a couple of guys TELL me how gifted they are, usually while wearing a smirk and a cornflower blue suit, some kind of goop in their hair, trying to sell me something.

True. I have met a few of those, usually I try to avoid them at all costs. 

I’d suspect the #1s are pretty low key, unwilling to admit it.

Don’t we all start as 3’s and progress over the years to 2’s?  It’s all the wtf moments as 3’s that get you there.

 Yes I started as a 3. With a lot of WTF moments, still have them!
