I have just found this site, and am reading the posts that come in under my keywords right now. I also see the educational courses, and have started to listen to those... I'm on Module 2. There is a wonderful wealth of information here!

All sounds like this will be a helpful site for me to learn a lot of what I am going to need to know to feel confident in my pursuit of becoming an investor. 

I look forward to meeting people here on BP and starting my way towards a more positive future ;)


For someone that lives in the South Bay... What was the toughest obstacle you overcame to pursue an investing, or Real Estate career?

As a newbie, my biggest concern is networking... I know some people in this profession, but I don't want to inundate them with my questions.

Welcome to BiggerPockets!  

I agree with you, "There is a wonderful wealth of information here!"

I feel as though I have found a treasure chest. Everyday it seems that I discover another precious jewel. I wish you happiness and success with your future investments. 

Have Fun!!!

  Thank you for the warm welcome

@Rubelyn P

I appreciate the enthusiasm :)

Hi Lynette,

Welcome to BiggerPockets! I am new here myself (approx. a week now).  If you haven't yet, I highly recommend the podcast. I must have poured through about 20 episodes when I first found it and finally ended up joining the site. Good luck with everything!

Thank you

@Jordan Thibodeau (how do i add a name with the @symbol?) "@jordan Thibodeau" ?

I read your "shameless plug" and am trying to do exactly that, obtain enough basic knowledge (especially specific terms used in investing) before jumping into ask a mentor for additional help with unanswered questions. I'm finding that quite a few of the questions I have, are answered here on BP.

I think my hardest stepping stone will be networking, as I'm somewhat shy about new people and situations. I do have knowledge and "knacks" of my own to give back to a mentor, and when I am comfortable I am a "go getter!"

Thank you again for the post, I appreciated your time in responding to my intro.
