For any of you real estate investors, what tools or sources did you learn from when getting started. Can’t find a mentor currently so want to find some highly recommended books or videos. If focused on the tri-state area (NY, NJ, Long Island mainly) that would be even better. My hope is to buy and rent out a apartment while also owning a house and house hacking that by renting part of it out. Trying to understand all the steps, traps, and how to find if it’s a good investment.

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

I found out today that my mid-70s mother converted the $40K or so she got when she and my dad divorced in the 90s to a net worth of almost $1M today. She got a little bit of money when my grandparents died, but she essentially did it on her own with some savvy investments and living very frugally (she was a SAHM and never had a paying job). My dad was TERRIBLE with money, so I’m especially proud of her for figuring out how to come out ahead. I told her she needs to write a book. Go Mom!
