Start by going to meetup and network. A successful investor isn't looking for people to mentor. you will have to go out and find that person. Be careful who you pick, make sure they are a true investor and not someone who charges people for content which is already here on BP. You have a lot of knowledge here and on the Podcast. My suggestion would be save up for down payment and buy a multi family with an FHA loan. Find a realtor who is an investor in your area to help you along the way. Best of Luck.
