College kid looking to get a head start. - Posted by Matt Kelly

Ok here is my scenario. I am 19 and a sophomore in college. I go to school 16 hours a week at CU Boulder and work 6 nights a week. I am pretty tired of this busy schedule and thought it would be nice to just be able to do a couple of RE investments a year and make it through. I just found this site a couple of weeks ago and it is so motivating to me. I have read quite a bit on people trying to start off young, and have come to the conclusion that I should definitely start as soon as possible. I understand that I need to read just about everything on this website before I start my journey in real estate, but I was just wondering if anyone could give me a step by step guide as to what to do after I read the stuff on this website. It is clear to me that a lot of REI is creativity, but it would help a lot if I could just have some steps or guidelines to follow. I have $1500 to invest if needed, but it would be great if I didn’t have to spend that money. Any advice would be great. Thanks a lot.
