19 years old what job will benefit me most before investing

1 Reply

Hello I am 19 years old and I am interested in real estate investing. What is the best way to get started for a newbie? Also, I am currently in college and am trying to pick a major and job that will benefit me most when I do begin real estate some time in the future. Would it be better to be a financial planner where I make more money and understand wealth management or would it be better to be a real estate agent where I build more knowledge, but make less money?
