Please include researching, mentoring, building your buyers list, etc. I'm not looking to jump in feet first now. I'm just curious. Thanks! :)
This business is like any other business.. Plan on years invested building it before you see big results.. If it happens sooner great!! But you have to be in for the long haul and have a long term mind set if you want true success in real estate! Best of luck!!!
4 years ago, it took me 6 1/2 months.
That is with me previously studying it off and on for a year and me making almost every mistake imaginable once I decided to stop doubting myself and go for it.
I almost totally quit because I felt like this wasn't for me. It wasn't as easy as the guru's made it out to be...shocker, I know but still it sounded so simple that it couldn't be this hard, right?
Well, thank the heavens I was bound and determined to make it happen. All I needed was my first deal so I would know that this is real and worth the struggle.
After 6 1/2 months of tripping, falling, stumbling and spending a ton of money on the next bright shiny object AND marketing for buyers and sellers, I got my first deal while I was working a full time job and I never looked back.
If you want to be successful in this business or any other business then you absolutely must have the right mindset and make a decision to simply just do it and believe that there is no competition only co-petition and never give up.
