New Guy - In college, flat broke, maniacal determination.

1 Reply

My name is Evan. I have a total of $10k worth of debt, including a very small car loan, I have a whopping 200 dollars in savings, and a car that's worth no more than $4k. That's all I've got. That, and a drive and determination that, with the right advice and direction, will get me out of debt, on onwards towards financial success.

I'm 21 years old, and in college. I want to start flipping houses - I want to start devoting my life towards making the highest returns possible as quickly as possible. Not so much for a get-rich-quick thing, but I don't intend to waste any time accumulating wealth, if at all possible.

Perhaps you guys can help. I started a thread in the "starting out" section:

Cheers all,


Hey Evan. You truly sound determined. Use that energy to soak up knowledge and meet people. If I were in your shoes, I'd start looking for some people I could learn from . . . find a developer, landlord, or other investor you can shadow and learn from. Be a grunt and learn the business firsthand.
