Read all of the courses you can, but don’t wait until you’ve finished them to start trying to make deals. There are a ton out there even for the novice investor. It is your desire that will make you successful. As a seminar veteran and somewhat successful investor (13 properties in 13 months netting over $260,000 in cash and equity plus an additional $90,000 in fees earned from brokering private hard equity loans), I’ve met people who like myself have spent over $20,000 in the last 12 months on courses and seminars and have yet to make their first deal. The courses help, but it really comes down to your “want to.” Good luck.
