Hello all BP!

My name is Jose, born and raised in Yakima but moved to Spokane in 2013. 

My current career is an apprentice concrete finisher In Local 72. While I love what I do, I would like to retire a healthy and sane(have you ever met a retired concrete finisher?-lol) human being. I also would like to be able to spend summers with my family instead of working 80 hours a week!

Part of my plan is to find a mentor locally that would teach me the ways of wholesalin but mostly focus on flips and buy and holds for the future. While I am enjoying all the plethora of info here, there is so much I still am unclear about(mostly finer details). 

Great to be here and a big thanks in advance to all the awesome people who share with all the world!

Welcome to Biggerpockets! @Jose Covarrubias Have you listened to any of the webinars that @Brandon Turner has done? If not, you definitely have to do that! Also, check to see if there are any local meetups of BP members by doing a search. That's a great way to meet other investors both new and experienced, and network. Good luck! enjoy the site! 

Thank you all for the warm welcome! I didn't realize there were so many from my area!  

I have been listening to the podcasts, reading blogs and forums for a few months now. I was hoping on going to the last REI meetup here recently but had other plans already lined up that night. Hopefully I can make it to the next one.

@Matt Sewell , you have a message.
