     Hi everyone at BP. I am a 40+ year old husband and father of two amazing girls whois super excited to learn about real estate. I was a tattoo artist for over 15 years but when my wife and I started having kids, I became a stay at home dad. We moved from Reno to Cincinnati to be close to my family and I now work for my mother and step father as the Handy Man for their 20+ door RE portfolio of beautiful Victorian's. I found BP through Brandon's amazing book on managing rental property's (thank you so much Brandon). In the beginning I just wanted to learn the management side because my parents are in their 70's and I knew that I would be responsible for running the portfolio eventually. The more I learned about real estate, the more excited I became and at this point I am learning everything I can to start investing. My current plan is to spend the next year learning and and focusing on two upcoming rehabs before I start investing myself. I am so grateful that I found Bigger Pockets first rather than some Guru. I look forward to interacting with the community and making my way through all 293 episodes of the podcast.

thanks

Aaron

Welcome to BP.  What area of investing are you most interested in?  Probably the best part of the BP Podcasts are that they open your eyes to the many paths and strategies that can be used to make real estate work for each individual.  

A great opportunity to meet other real estate investors, network, and learn is Joe Fairless' meetup:

The last one is a post that will help you choose an “investor friendly” real estate agent. There are many agents out there, but it’s important to choose the right one.
