Real estate license or go into wholesaling
Chocolate or vanilla? Left or right? Chicken or Steak?
It's entirely up to you and what you want to do. Personally, I chose wholesaling. I may also get my license. I have my reasons, which I doubt are the same as yours. Figure out what motivates you and do some research. What are you willing to do, and what are you not willing to do?
To start, go to some local REI meetings. Get involved with active investors. This will help you find some direction.
