I’ve read enough books to know what I want to do (SFR fix/flip at retail and later get into rentals) but I feel like I am standing on one side of a huge desert. On the other side is my first flip. I’m just not sure how to get moving to it. I know some of the things I need to do but I’m blocking myself worrying… what if the hard money isn’t there when I need it, can it really only be based on the arv?.. seems too easy. Will they really give me the money? Can I really get a good enough deal from a wholesaler so it comes in at the 70% arv including repairs? OK, those are some real questions I have, but I also have this looming negativity (what makes me think I can really do this… talk to all those people, find that deal, make some serious money. How can I kick my ass to get it moving? My foot will reach, but I can’t seem to get enough force into it (jk) I just feel like I am not sure what to do next. Theres no one holding my hand telling me what to do and I think I might be used to having that to some extent.
Theres LOTS more but Ok, you get the picture. I don’t want to be reading and analyzing forever and I know I sound really pathetic but I want this to work, so if I sound like a fool, so be it. I need a kick and am asking for it. Is there a book anyone could recommend that can help me to have more confidence in doing this, or in taking that first step forward? I feel stuck and know it’s just a way of thinking I need to change. I’ve read rich dad poor dad and about 10+ other books. They really helped in my thinking differently, but they weren’t quite what I needed to actually take action.
