Hello BiggerPockets!

Like many of you, I got my inspiration to get into real estate from Robert Kiyosaki. In my goals group, I made it a goal to read all of the Rich Dad and Rich Dad Advisor books I could find.

There were close to 20 books, and I either listened to or read each of them within a 3-month span.

Mind = BLOWN.

I've been working in the hospitality field for about 20 years now, and I'm ready for something new and challenging and growth-oriented. Something with a lot more control and potential. 

Which is why I am here. Taking a baby step forward. I look forward to connecting with smart people from whom I can learn (and hopefully work with!). 

Get in touch!


Welcome to BP I've networked alot of here with alot of knowledgeable investors. My piece of advice which I didn't see in your post would be to focus on a specific aspect of real estate starting off whether it be buy and hold,flips or wholesaling etc. Next find forum post about whatever it is  you're interested  in and also podcast, they have helped me out alot. Again welcome and use BP to its full potential.

Yes sir, those ideas, if put into action, will change your life.

p.s. Ever been to the Knob Creek range? I used to exhibit at that show. If you have ever gone, you won't forget it. I think their next big event is next month. I don't do that drive anymore..it was easier when I was younger:)

Wow! What an incredible response! Thanks for making me feel welcome, guys!

@Joseph King Thanks! What's captured my attention is multi-family. I am looking for value-add opportunities in 8-units and above in a buy-and-hold long-term strategy. 

I am starting with very little financially, and a humble willingness to learn and mostly to TAKE ACTION. So my first foray into REI will be as syndicator.

@John Thedford I've never been there, and I have a colleague who is a volunteer fire fighter/videographer (interesting combo) who records the show every year. I've seen some insane footage!

Sincerely, I am shocked by the sense of community here! I'm hooked!

@Devin Best

OK...so now you have a clue about my high end sporting goods business:) I told one of the BP mods what is going on and I think I shocked him...seriously!

I haven't been up there in a few years but it was always a good time except when it hit about 20 degrees and I was frozen to the bone. Convinced me I want to stay in SW Florida.
