Glad to meet you.
I refer to your state of mind as ‘Information Overload’ which is not uncommon when you want to start real estate investing but do not know where to start.
If I were traveling as much as you, think about making contacts with the various people you run into. Ask them or tell them you are interested in real estate investing if they hear of a property that the owner needs help in selling to give you a call.
You then could network with investors wherever you travel charging a finders fee for your services (you do consulting now) by providing them with the details of the property. As you become familiar with the process of buying and selling properties, which I am sure the investors you contact will provide you with if you ask, then you can determine if and when you would want to start on your own.
