Start small

You want to start small.  No one ever jumps in and purchases a fifty-unit apartment building or a hotel.  If they do and it works, more power to them, however, they will be the exception not the rule.  When starting out you want to really tip your toes in the water, learn the things that they don’t teach you in school and be observant.


Once you make a deal don’t go and spend all of your money on a vacation.  You want to take what you have learned and what you have made and reinvest it into your business.  When you do this then you can get the bigger and better deals.

Keep your eyes open, take risks and eventually you will succeed.
