Hello Hello. I would like to reintroduce myself  to the Forum. Im Ronnie Wooldridge and I live in the Small west Texas town of Snyder near Lubbock and Abilene. I'm a Contractor/Investor and new to Bigger Pockets. Ive had my remodeling business for 25 years Wooldridge Contracting and you can see me a little more clearly at wwwWooldridgecontracting.com. I"m looking to connect with buyers, sellers, and friends in the region thru BP.  I have a little RE experience and I am ready to dive in.  My original introduction was not very informative.  Can anyone from area say hi to help me feel welcomed? 

Hello Ronnie!

I'm up in Lubbock, pretty new to things as well, but ive got some projects going on. Are you going to focus your remodeling company on your own investments now?

hello Ronnie...welcome...I'm a newbie....haven't dove in yet but planning on really soon....I know nothing about real estate but I'm reading and taking courses here and beginning to get comfortable...maybe we can partner up in Lubbock soon....good luck

 Hello and welcome!  I am 59 years old and I found BP about 4 months ago and I am still learning.  I graduated from college with a business degree that emphasized real estate.   I got my degree and a broker license In 1980.  Regardless of that degree I felt more comfortable with the construction business.  I have been in the construction business since I was 17.  If you think you can use my brain somehow to help you please contact me at any time.  Good luck!

Hello and welcome to the Bigger Pockets community. As you can see already this is an awesome place to network with other investors and professionals that can help you in your real estate career. But that's just one little part.

Not sure if you have checked out the other contents yet. If not, I encourage you to read the blogs, check out the forum posts, set up some keyword alerts using your city name and your interests. This will make sure you are notified as soon as someone posts with those words.

Also listen to the podcasts. There are over 150 hours of amazing interviews with people who have done what we are learning how to do.

Then there is the Ask BP section which includes some great Q&As. There are many books available here too. Check out the suggestions at biggerpockets.com/books

Good luck

@Ronnie Wooldridge Hi Ronnie! Welcome to BP.  I'm a new investor focusing in the Abilene, TX area. I'm primarily focused on buy and holds but considering doing my first flip this year so I'm sure I'll need the advice of a good general contractor. I look forward to seeing you on the boards and possibly connecting in the future.
