It sounds like you have a big, immediate financial problem. It is unlikely that you are going to find the solution on the internet or at the convention.
You need a JOB.
Frankly, Michael, that is a dirty word here. Most contributors here are either very happy that they no longer have to work a job or they are working to get out of one.
You problem is (I think) that you need to support your family NOW. You need money now. You need medical insurance for your family now.
Although it is within the realm of possibility, it is unlikely that the convention or RE investing will bring you a steady flow of cash right away.
Based on the little you have told us, I think you need to get off of the internet and spend some quality time with the Atlanta Journal help wanted ads. It sounds like your truck operation never worked well. Maybe the loss of your truck is a good thing to force you out of that business.
Get yourself a job. Get a steady income coming in to provide for your family. Once things get under control, learn everything you can on this site and then you can venture into this arena.
It’s too easy to lose yourself in dreams and the internet. Put that aside and return to them when you get back on your feet.
I hope to see you at the convention…next year.
Best of luck to you, Michael.
