Sounds to me like you need to read some more. Please do not take that offensively. It is not meant to sound that way. I too am a newbie, but have done a couple of deals, and I can tell you that i am still reading, studying and trying to learn everything I can.
Goto the “How to” articles here, and also buy a course. you’ll surely not regret it. Frnakly, I’ve heard, (and did this myself), people say, “But I cannot afford a course”.
Well, heres the deal, that could be your first “creative pursuit”. You need to find a way to come up with the money, and get a course. Even a basic course will give you the answers you seem to be seeking here.
Then you can have the course for future reference, and also be armed with more knowledge to approach this board. There were many questions here that I did not understand, and after reading and studying, I now can go thru the archive here, and utilize this vasy array of information.
Study, learn, and do! That is the only way any of us will ever get anywhere doing anything, especially REI.
