Hello Bigger Pockets!

This is actually a reintroduction. My last post was my first introduction about 3 years ago. Reading that introduction makes me realize how much of a roller coaster life can be.

In that post I was living in another state and looking to get started. Today I live in Charleston, WV and my partners and I have flipped over 100 homes and manage another 95 in holding as well as some commercial space.

We moved here (Charleston,WV) 2.5 years ago for my wife to attend Marshall University to get her doctorates in nurse anesthesia. I had sold my first business about 2 years prior and we had been travel nursing all over the West Coast, Maui, and finally DC when she got accepted into school. A month after moving here I reached out to a local real estate investment company and asked to shadow them. I told them I had capital and years of experience running businesses as well as being a financial coach and consultant.

Turns out, we needed each other. Fast forward 2.5 years and I am now partner and CEO of A&M Investments with my partners Andrew and Steve. I am also an investor. I have personally invested on over 15 homes including 4 of the 15 that are in rehab currently.  

I am very active on many social media platforms (IG/YT) but not sure the rules on tagging those here. I have always been a BP fan and I am frustrated with myself for not being more active on here. So I hope to change that and here is my first new post.

 Thanks Derrick! We haven't been yet but I guess we need to.

Definitely need to. It's a good time. Both the Cincy game and the Ohio game will be good ones to go to early in the season. Go Herd!
