Looking for advice, not a handout… - Posted by John

Let me take a minute to explain to you where I am coming from (I am sorry this is so long but please bear with me)…
I am 26 years old, self employed, and have been working 80+ hour weeks for the last 4 years to build my photography business. I started out having a job I loved to do and was, if I may say so myself, very good at.
After 4 years I am tired. I am tired and I am burned out. I continue to work 12-15 hour days 6 to 7 days a week but my heart is just not in it anymore. I am looking for something new.
I have always had an interest in real estate investing but have had no idea how to go about getting started. As hard as I work I still do not have enough money to start investing through conventional means.
I am not looking for a handout and I will not waste anyone’s time. What I want is some real advicefrom people that have had success with investing. IS the CS Program worth me taking time away from my business to study? From what I have heard from the few people that responded to my original post the answer would be no. If CS is not the place to start then what is?
There are so many options available. Which ones are the best (not easiest…BEST)? I would appreciate any advice that anyone can give me.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
By the way…I am in the Dallas/Fort Worth area if that makes any difference.
