Hello all,

I’m new to my area (Research Triangle, NC) and new to real estate investing. I’ve done some REI research, read some books, spent some time on the CREOnline site, and I’m finally ready to get out and get going.

It will be a few weeks before the local investor’s club meets here, and I’m curious to know what people think is the best way to spend my time between now and then. Recently graduated from college, I’m also looking for work (need a job to establish an address and develop a credit history) and am wondering if anyone can recommend jobs that will help develop the skills a beginner needs to be successful in the REI world.

Any advice or anecdotes you could offer would be a great help to me as I begin to build a support network.
