Like so many new investors, I signed up for different classes and coaches to help me get started. I am glad I did because you can never know enough. However, you can go overboard with it as well. I met one new investor who had spent over $100,000 in education/coaches and never had bought one house yet! Talk about a deer in the headlights!
One time, I flew back east to attend Robin Thompson’s weekend seminar. I was interested because she was the only woman real estate investing coach I knew about at the time. Robin was good because she went into more of the nuts and bolts such as construction and how to get your buyers financed. I still go to classes that interest me, but the best training I think you can get is on the ground. However, I know many investors (including myself) who have lost money in a project…and it is a lesson you don’t soon forget! Real estate investing is risky and there are a lot of pitfalls as well as profits in it.
