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.

Ladies, I agreed to get take on a project with a hybrid travel schedule but after kicking it off, my SM is expecting a lot more travel than a few workshops.

A guy that I went on two dates with texts and checks in on me basically everyday and initiates texts, but his responses back are slow. I asked him to meet again since it has been 10 days since we last hung out. He’s in grad school so he said before that this week is super busy for him. He doesn’t really seem to have time to meet much but still initiates texts everyday. Is he really busy or losing interest?

I found The Intelligent Investor helpful. It’s a classic. Freakonomics is an easy introduction to eco topics.
I got 6 shares on this post and 1 reply. Not complaining but lol
I second what BCG said. I read Freakonomics in high school and still listen to the authors podcast. Intelligent investor is considered the holy grail of investment books by warren buffet.
