Super excited new real estate investor looking for ideas

3 Replies

Gooooood morning BP nation,

I am very excited to be part of this awesome community and I can't wait to link up with you guys.  I am active duty military stationed on Dyess AFB, TX, 21 yrs old, just purchased my first single-family last month.  It seems like much like everybody else, as soon as I read rich dad, poor dad, I caught the real estate investing bug and I am hyped to keep going.  My goal for 2018 going into 2019 is to supplement my income.  I want to acquire at least 8 to 10 this year going onto the next year, I want to dabble in a little bit of everything like flipping, wholesaling, rental and buy and hold.  I am trying to read every book i can get my hands on every day, even during my lunch break, i'm energized.  Now that i have one under my belt, i know i can keep going, but i need some guidance.   


I am ecstatic about real estate investing and looking for guidance and mentorship to get my second deal and how to continue this journey

Thank you

Talk to you soon!
