My Diary - From Newbie In REI To Success, And Everything in Between

This is not just some random blog with some guru's opinion on what you should do to make it in REI, as if they have any clue what you are going through, what it's like having no money, having kids that need attention, having a damn job that needs your time, what it truly is like being completely overwhelmed with all the information out there about flipping houses, wholesaling, and real estate investing in general making it simply impossible to just start. Yes, I have been there! Now let me tell you what this "blog" really is. This is a diary. When I was still new at this I wrote down everything I did, step by step, the good, the bad, the stupid and the brilliant ideas I had, the mistakes I made and the triumphs I had. I suggest you read the blog from beginning to end before you try to take the same steps I took, because I have made some mistakes I regret making.

By MSOOTKAUG / February 3, 2016 / 2

As I travel along on this path every now and then doubts and fears creep in. This may be normal, but it can be dangerous. I finally can clearly see why so many people fail.

Steps to take to lift you back up when you feel down. I see it now. And I am fortunate I do. Because now I can prepare myself for this…
