I definitely did not find success overnight! I struggled for a while before I found my niche as an agent and then as an investor. If I could do things over again I would have bought rentals much sooner and yes even with the housing crash! Rentals were the big wealth builder although flipping is fun and creates a lot of income as well. I also have my blog investfourmore.com which has been awesome to have too. I still have many goals and things I want to do in real estate that will take a lot of work and persistence! Now we are taking on the challenge of buying a liquor store, mini mart, and we still have the bar to get going!
