Newbie From Jackson MS

2 Replies

I am from Jackson, Ms. I am new to real estate investing. I'm here to learn as much as I can. I attended my first real estate group meeting last Thursday, I plan to attend again this Thursday to network and meet other investors. A little about me, I have always been active into sports and going to the gym, I am a gym rat. I currently work with my family at our dealership in Jackson Ms. I'm kind of like everybody else here that read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad and started looking at everything differently. I started analyzing my life to see how many assets I have and how many liabilities I have. I realized I didn't have many assets working for me . I recently read Robert Kiyosaki book Cashflow Quadrant and realized in my own business I was working as a (E) and a (S), instead of as a (B) and a (I). I'm excited to join the Bigger Pockets community and hope to meet, talk with other member on this journey of learning how to invest in Real Estate. 

Hi Emmanuel,

I moved to Jackson a year ago. I started attending online and face to face RE meetings in town, but I let it go recently. I am planning to start back in January and I am looking to purchase my first property early next year. 

I have heard there are a lot of out of state investors, especially from Colorado. I am interested in doing some birddogging if things work out. 

Are you still in the area? How are things going with your RE investing?
