Getting Started as a Real Estate Entrepreneur

by Attorney William Bronchick

Whether you are new to real estate, or have reached a “plateau,” the following will help “jump-start” your real estate investing career.

If you tell them you heard it in a seminar or a course you bought from a late-night television “guru,” they will laugh and call you “gullible.” Attorneys and other professionals will denounce it, because it sounds unusual. Keep in mind that these people are either threatened by their own lack of success or are looking to protect their own butts.
