College Student in Chicago eager to learn more about Investing!

New Member Introductions 3 Replies

Hi there,

I wanted to introduction myself to the BP community. I just finished my sophomore year at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. I am majoring in Real Estate and minoring in Marketing. I am working as a Leasing Agent currently and am in the process of studying to get my Broker's license. I am looking to network with investors new and seasoned to learn more about the business. I am very excited to begin my investing career. Cheers!  

@Dana Alfirevic ,

Good luck with school!

@Dana Alfirevic ,

One of my mentors graduated from DePaul with a major in IT and a minor in entrepreneurship. He paid over $100K for his education. He worked 8 months in IT and was laid off. These days he uses his minor more than his major. 

He has since made around $3.5 million in 10 years using his minor (in real estate and related activities).

Food for thought ...
