Introducing myself to the family!

Hello! I just wanted to introduce myself to the BiggerPockets family. I have been listening to the podcast for about a year now and have read a few of the BiggerPockets books as well. I am a full time electrician working for the government while attending night school to finish up my NJ state electrical license and a part time NJ real estate agent on the side. I grew up in South Jersey and have returned to my home town after spending 10 years in Hawaii surfing, bartending and living the aloha dream. I love to travel and enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities. I am interested in investing in buy and hold rentals and looking to learn as much as possible in this industry. I am hoping to network with people who like to teach and can help get me on track to set myself up for a future of financial freedom. My long term goal is to survive and thrive off of enough passive income through real estate to allow myself to retire young and pursue my hobbies and dreams full time.

Hey Will, I think you're pretty crazy for leaving Hawaii to come back to South Jersey but welcome back lol. At least we still get some good waves out here but nothing comparable to what you're used to. Anyways, good luck with your REI ventures and hope to see you at some of the local REIA meetups.

Yea it was a tough move but my family is all over here and my mom wasn’t doin well so after 10 years on the islands i figured I’d come home. I can always go back! Yea the surf is a little different here but I grew up surfing in NJ so nothing new. What realest ate group do you attend?

Oh wow sorry to hear about your mother but definitely have to take care of family over other things. I've only been to one of the meetups so far since I'm new here but it's the same one that was linked above by James.

@James Masotti I actually have a work event that night but I would like to look into the next one. How do I find out about when and where they are held?

Set a keyword alert for "South Jersey" and you should get a notification every time  @Justin Eaton creates an event. 

All of those should set you up to get notified when an event is coming :)
