@Mike Reynolds what exactly do you do and would you be able to mentor me

 I don't know that I am that good of a mentor. I say this with all due respect. What works for me may or may not work for you. 

Everyone has a different path to take. What I am comfortable with you may not be. So, if I tell you to do "this" and you trust me, and it's not something you even care to do (or are comfortable with at all) and it fails you will not be happy at all. 

I have invested in raw land, tax deeds, a few notes and mobile home parks. I am thinking about expanding into self storage and maybe NNN. I probably hit just about everyone's alert button with this paragraph because I am very flexible in this market.

I am willing to give you advice on what I do know. But remember, advice is worth what you pay for it. In this business it's often worth a whole lot less because of the (sometimes) crooked gurus. 

Use this forum to let everyone mentor you as it has me. I would have never bought the first property without the many, many great people on here. There is so much excellent advice here for free. 

what kind of investing are you thinking about to get started?

@Noah Juarez

It would be helpful if you explained what you are looking for. What are your goals and expectations in investing. Are you just starting out, want to get into wholesaling, flipping, buy and hold, ........

I am trying to get into fixing and flipping homes. I bought a house and i am in the process of fixing it up, but it will take some time because I work out of town a lot in the oil field and building dams. I am trying to invest in my future right now that I'm makeing really good money just need a mentor or mentor helping me and giving me advice.

 If you live in Nac I can help you find some good contractors that won't break the bank but will do good work. 

Hola!  I'm in Nac also!  Mike is great about helping with advice!  Eric, did I just hear you ask David Greene a question on his podcast??  You said you were from East Texas and hitting roadblocks?

We should all get together.  I've been talking about it forever, but maybe it's time?

I started with 1 duplex inherited from my dad.  That was about 10 years ago.  after several years I realized that is a money maker and should do more!  Now I've got 3 duplexes  (1 duplex is waiting for renovations), a 1 bedroom efficiency, and wholesaling. There were more rentals but a divorce claimed 3 of them.

 We really should set up a meet.

I wanna play too!  How far are people willing to drive??  I'm happy to host a potluck and provide the burgers!
