My name is Kelsey Unger. I'm brand new to the world of real estate investing, still looking to make my first purchase. My main goal right now is to learn the ins and outs of the industry, and purchase my first property before the start of 2018.
On the reading list right now is:
The Ultimate Beginners Guide to Real Estate Investing (Brandon Turner)
The Miracle Morning (Hal Elrod)
The Book on Rental Property Investing (Brandon Turner)
Since these first posts are more meant as an Ice breaker, I'll throw out that my favourite kind of ice cream is vanilla, because it pairs with toppings so well, and tastes good by itself. Do you disagree? Why?
I look forward to meeting all of you and seeing where this leads,
The miracle morning is a terrible book
@Steve B. Haha! Way to kill the vibes on this thread.
I am also a Vanilla guy. I really don't understand all these other flavors, Vanilla is perfect, no need to improve upon perfection.
I am glad my book was mentioned in this list by @Keith Kellermeyer ! I am currently about to re-read "the Compound Effect" by Darren Hardy, and just finished up the autobiography of ben franklin by... well, I can't recall who wrote that one. Oh well ;)
@Scott Trench Well anyone who says you can get by on little sleep because the need for sleep is a sociatal delusion, and uses his book as a platform to sell daily planners and calming aura and soothing chakra tea, isn't someone I'd look to for serious life advice.
Hi @Kelsey Unger ,
First the important things:
Yes vanilla is by far the perfect icecream choice. As you mentioned it pairs wonderfully with every topping imagineable (Not to exclude Vernors, root beer and Coke). It also is a readily available choice which just adds to the allure, unlike say "Peanut, Carmel, Cranola Twist" or some such. Which may be fine in your local market, but when you travel you are back to craving your favorite Ice Cream with zero outlets to do so. So I will commend you on your choice and you can throw my results into your poll!
As far as books, those work
Have a great day!
