Introduction to the group

3 Replies

Hello everyone, my name is JJ.

I’ve never really been good at these introduction things, so I guess I’ll just describe who I am now, and what I want to become in the future.

Right now I am a 30 year old male with no dependents, basically renting a room where ever he can. I’ve worked in restaurants my whole life and the work and pay are crappy, but I have experience and can barely scrape by a minimum existence. I also last year got my real-estate license, I have not yet been able to do anything substantial with it, I’m still new still trying to get my name out, but still to date I have no income coming in due to my license.

Things seem bad, but I know they could be much worse, and I still have hope for my future. I know though that to truly excel, to have my financial freedom, to get there sooner rather than later- I need help. What I truly want on my most basic side is to have a family, a wife, kids, pets, house with yard, and the time and freedom to enjoy it. What I truly want on my most extravagant side is to have so much financial wealth that I can share with the world, I want to make housing affordable for everyone. And yes that is an extremely extravagant dream, but one I know with time and a lot of help could be achievable.

So I guess my introduction is turning into more of a question. A friend of mine on Facebook told me about this site, that if anywhere could help it would be here. So let me ask, are my dreams even possible, can you and are you willing to help me make these dreams become reality?

Thank you so much for your time and I hope you have a great day.

Welcome to Bigger Pockets!

This is a great place to learn and network. A lot of forum members are very knowledgeable in their respective fields related to real estate investing, whether that is real estate sales, wholesaling, flipping, rentals, lending, self-directed IRA and Solo 401k investing, or tax and legal guidance.

@Joshua Lindsay Welcome to BP! Congratulations on taking the first steps. Getting your license means you have some knowledge and an inside look into the MLS which will come in handy. One of the best ways to get a foothold in this field is to add value to others' quest for financial freedom. ...and it sounds to me like that's what you are trying to accomplish.
