We’re flipping the script today: one of my students, Alex May, is going to be interviewing me about how to invest in yourself when it comes to your real estate education. I’ve had twelve years' worth of feedback from you guys in the group, and I’m excited to share what I’ve learned with all of you.
Back when we first started the REI Club, it was a lot more difficult to access information about real estate investing. Now, thanks to things like Facebook and YouTube, that kind of information is becoming available to everyone. Things are changing rapidly, but I think that there’s never been a better time to jump into real estate investing.
Just because there is all of this information out there doesn’t mean that it’s easier to get started, though. There can be an overwhelming amount of videos, podcasts, and blog articles to sift through, and guess what: the best stuff is always going to be locked behind a paywall. No one is going to give it to you for free.
That’s why it’s important to know where to look. You need to understand where you are on the experience scale to know what kind of education you should pursue. A complete beginner is going to need a different program than someone who is trying to scale up or grow an existing business.
Real estate education is expensive, so you really need to do your due diligence when it comes to choosing a program. We call it “investing in yourself” for a reason. There aren’t refunds for these things, and I go over some specific tips and tricks for finding a coaching program that’s going to be worth your time and money.
And at the end of the day, you have to be prepared to take what you learn and apply it. It’s going to take work. Be a doer, not a talker, and you’re going to find success.
