Hey Bigger Pockets community I am a new investor from Oklahoma.
I have been in the education industry for ten years and am currently a high school administrator. I enjoy my career, but am looking for a passive income stream to build wealth and provide me with further options. I currently have two single family rentals. One was acquired before the housing bubble in 06 when anybody could get financed and the other rental is my old primary residence. I have been listening to a lot of audio books and podcast for the past few months, but still know I have so much to learn. My goal is to acquire four new rentals in 2016. I am debating between single family or multi-family.
I would appreciate some recommendations on the best books, podcast, blogs to really get started. Even though I have two rentals I don't feel like I have the knowledge or skill to pull the trigger to accomplish my 2016 goals.
welcome aboard my wife and i are former educators as well. Lots of deals around in okc if you keep an eye out.
Welcome @Sabrina Shaw ! Just thought I'd let you know there is a small group of us BP members in the area that are meeting Tuesday (the 5th) at Buffalo Wild Wings in Broken Arrow at 7pm. My wife and I are from Okmulgee, there is a couple from Sapulpa, a couple from Coweta and I think we're supposed to have a couple new ones this time. We meet once a month. Hope to see you there!
@Steven Thomas I'm in Sapulpa but can't make it Tuesday. How can I find out when you're meeting again? I would love to come next time!
Thank you @Rubelyn P. @Jared Smith and @Rhett Tullis for the warm welcome.
@Steven Thomas thank you for the invite I would like the opportunity to meet with other BP members. I am unavailable Tuesday evening due to my job. Are the meetups the first Tuesday of every month?
Welcome, Sabrina! I'm new too.
@Steven Thomas, I would also love to come to the meetings. I probably won't be able to make it this month, but it's great to know there is a group in the area! I'm in BA.
