Newer investor to Omaha area. Focusing on Wholesale properties .

Hey guys new investor here to the Omaha area. Started out in AZ about 3 years ago. I had been about 7 years into a construction management position working way to many hours a week and being away from home and family. Went to a rich dad poor dad seminar and that was free, next thing you know I'm dropping 30k on training courses and three years later only one deal done that was unintentionally on my AZ residence. (Buy and Hold 100k profit). I guess I could say life got in the way but to me it just sounds like a scam.  I have a bit of an analysis paralysis problem. I have had a hand full of deals that made it to the title for closing but fell through do to some of the most bazar endings ever. Needless to say those were frustrating but I am no quitter. I moved back to NE where I know the area and have a lot more contacts in the industry help to things move along. When I got here I was faced with having to get the JOB to get a mortgage loan going for my personal residence. Now here I am 2 years later realizing how fast that time has gone by and that the job is great but it is still not what I want which is to be a full time real estate investor with financial and time freedom. So here I am signed up for bigger pockets which I ran across because of a like from a friend on fb. This friend happens to be one that I met at my initial re training. The irony he has gone on to be a legendary investor full time. He's got a serious DO factor that I only hope to achieve someday.   So anyway that's a quick idea where I'm at. I signed up for bigger pockets because I was looking for tips on how to negotiate with sellers as I was headed to meet with one yesterday on a property. No contract signed but I'm working on it. The fact she didn't tell be to get lost when I told her my offer was a good sign I think. Supposed to talk with her Fri. Happy to be here and love the site. I will not stop until I make this happen for my family to provide them a better life. Thanks for reading the rant.  

Wow! I've of course heard of the Rich Dad Poor Dad books many times but had no idea they did the whole high $$ training courses thing too.

Leverage your "unfair advantages" or personal differentiators as it were. Sounds like one of yours might be your construction management extensive experience. Good luck!
