Today, Greg joins me to discuss the essentials regarding real estate investing and business management. We discuss what new investors should do when they’re just starting their real estate career, how they should market, and the deals they should start with. We discuss the difference in profits between wholesaling and rehabs and when you should utilize one over the other. We also discuss my plans for 2019 and the reason behind my goals.
