Short summary of me;
-Worked for a broker/investor from 16-19 years old (2010-2013). Cheap labor, learned a bunch. Didn't see the results I wanted & decided to chase the quick payoff through W2's.
-Decided to get some "knawledge" (Tai Lopez joke) and do the corporate stuff and try my hand at the tech startup scene. Went to college and decorated my resume with many internships and jobs in cubicle farms (such as CoreLogic - they own RealQuest/ListSource). Quickly saw this was not the way to live life.
-Took 2 months off this summer to do a West Coast tour. Traveled over 8,000 miles from Baja to British Columbia. Was able to do a bunch of "soul searching" and realized I make a HUGE mistake to quit in the real estate investing scene.
I'm now moving back to Lubbock (went to school at Texas Tech, grew up in the Irving/Arlington, Texas area) to start investing there, and then eventually come back to the DFW metroplex.
What am I wanting to do? Build a REIT through slow, deliberate, conservative, & smart moves. I'm not trying to get rich overnight, but I am looking to expedite the process through long hours, hard work, and an excellent team.
I believe the pie is MUCH bigger than we think - and that we can work together to scour deals. Let me know what I can do to help you & your business!
p.s. please give any tips/suggestions.
