“If you really have 000, that’s okay. I would just go out there and find a deal, and go to meetups and learn how to find that first deal.”

“That’s what really, really took me over the edge - that 1-on-1 attention for a couple of months.”

“Honestly, the education, the $5K I paid to my first mentor was far more profitable.”

“Unfortunately, when you don’t have the money, whoever has the money makes the rules.”

“If it’s crazy, it’s just because you’re not finding a profitable opportunity. If you’re finding an opportunity that only makes you 10% and you’re scared to pay a lender then you’re in the wrong deal.”

“When I was starting, I thought that higher means better always, but pretty much above 14% in my experience is weird.”

“If you go too high, then you kinda get into that scammer range, so I think 8-12% is a sweet spot for hard money lending.”
