Newbie investor Introduction

10 Replies

Hi everyone! My name is Stuart and I'm brand new to real estate investing and BP. I learned about this site from a friend and I have been listening to the podcast for several weeks now. A different friend of mine and myself are gathering as much knowledge as we can right now and are hoping to start making moves in the very near future.

I currently work as an OTR (over the road) truck driver and while I love my job I want to build other streams of income and hopefully obtain more free time in the process. I'm currently away from home most of the time.

I'm very much looking forward to learning, meeting new people and networking.
