Hello. My name is Brian Person. I have been in the mortgage industry as a Loan Officer for the past few years, but due to some life events, have taken a leave from work right now. I am interested in learning about how to get into Real Estate Flipping, but my true desire is to get into rentals to create long term income. I'm looking for information on the best way to get started in this industry. I decided to join BiggerPocktes after I watched a webinar from Brandon Turner and decided to try it. I have gone to some investor classes in the past as well.

Thank you, 

@Brian Person
