Newbie from Los Angeles, looking to Invest Long Distance

2 Replies

Hey Bigger Pockets!
I'm Ricardo I currently work as an engineer, I love the outdoors, volunteering and my dog! I've always been interested in personal finance and especially reaching financial independence, but I only recently discovered REI and BP.

I first came across BP through their podcast series on youtube, and got hooked when I heard about the BRRRR strategy. I've since bought David Greene's books on long distance investing and BRRRR, and look forward to reading them. I signed up for a pro membership and I'm trying to learn as much as I can to get ready for my first deal.

I've set myself, what I consider to be, a lofty goal of finding and funding my first deal by November this year.
Thanks for letting me introduce myself and I'd love to hear any advice you might have for starting out and investing long distance.
