New guy on the block

I'm interesting in flipping houses and I have no clue where to start. 

How do I find money to start? Especially if I have NO credit and barely any money saved up. I'm a college student that works part time just to make ends meet. I would love to get into the business it's just I don't know where I can get the money. Please describe in a way I can understand! 


Start attending your local real estate investor meetings to learn vocabulary and meet people doing what you want to do.

You won't find money without education and experience. You're no where near ready to start flipping properties, but you are ready for education. BiggerPockets is a great place to start reading and interacting.

Good luck to you and welcome to real estate investing!
