I am an ex-executive at a failed financial services company that went down in '08 leaving me with a bunch of worthless stock and a lot of drive to start over.  I have  a willingness to work hard, to learn, and a desire to control my own destiny and my own time.

Welcome to BP! I second the recommendation to listen to the podcasts as well as reading through the guides and forums.  Let us know if you have any specific questions.

Welcome Jason, your business experience should serve you well. First thing to understand is that real estate is not a widget, difference between real and personal property. Begin by understanding real estate before applying tactics to deal in real estate. 

The O' Fallon area should be a good one! Good luck :)
