Eager to Start My Journey

I am not sure how relevant Biggerpockets advice works on a canadian level, although i love every webinar i have ever watched, every podcast i have listened to, and every book i have read, i realize laws and strategies dont necessarily apply accross the boarder.

That being said, i am trying my best to read between the lines and apply what i can here.....apply might be a strong word at the moment for all i have done is really educate myself as much as i can daily, no real actionable steps have been taken on my part to be a more confident real estate investor.

I currently have next to no money saved, but saving as much as i can 15% of my small wage at work, and it slowly builds, i have rocked at bringing my credit score up from a hurting 595 to a 742 within 6 months and now working on getting credit available to me.  i am trying to network but as an introvert everytime i do this i step out of my confort zone and just that feels like a win.

My goal is to much talked about house hacking it works weel in some areas of winnipeg, manitoba, canada i just have to sacrifice and live in an area of the city that is to say the least........not so good lol, the wife is on board and excited for new beginnings, now to make smaller goals to get me to my first goal and one step at a time, i will become a real estate investor.

Congrats! It's wise, I think, to take your time and educate yourself because there is a lot of different areas of RE and a lot to sort through. I don't think you will ever regret learning and starting to trying to grow your money! Good luck!
