Welcome Hai, I am fairly new myself but am really enjoying the community! To get started I would suggest a few things. 

First is to listen to a few podcasts about the types of real estate investing that you are interested in. These give some of the best education that you can find for free!  The Bigger Pockets podcast is great and covers lots of areas including flipping properties, how to get financing, and rental properties. I recommend the apartment building investing with Michael Blank podcast for multifamily, and Mobile home park investors with Jefferson Lilly for mobile home parks. These are some of the best that I have found. 

Second I recommend finding and attending real estate investing meetings in your area. This will help put you with like minded people that can help brainstorm, mentor and maybe even partner on a deal. 

Good Luck with your Future Ventures!
