When getting started in real estate investing do you need a mentor? This is a question we hear many people ask when pursuing their interest in real estate investing. A very common response for most people is: “I don’t have the money for a mentor” or “I can do it myself.” Well, you would be correct either way.  There is no wrong answer. It depends on your goals, abilities, and how you want to go about accomplishing your plan. Tweet ThisI have spent over $50,000 over the last 10 years in courses, boot camps and various real estate events. I don’t regret any of it – I learned a lot. However, I could have shortened my learning curve and probably eliminated some of the money I lost on bad deals, because unfortunately no matter how good the course, boot camp or event they aren’t there with you in the present moment when you are working on your deals. Those courses can’t answer your burning questions, provide you with resources, caution you before you make a risky move, etc…

 

The most successful people work with a mentor or multiple mentors who have helped them to shorten their learning curve and reach their goals quickly and more efficiently. So consider what’s important to you and invest wisely in yourself and your goals. Tweet This
