Create your plans and execute them fearlessly.
That's how I see it. And never give up!
I remember my first real estate investing workshop. The training was by Tom Vu. He taught us how to use the court house to find property records. From the owners name, liens on the mortgage etc. That was back in the 1990's. Now there's software and the internet is available to make your research much easier.
Now, I can build my real estate business fearlessly with online tools just for investors.
Let me leave you with a good thought...You have nothing to fear; you destroy fear when you overcome to never give up on your ability to accomplish your goals. Whatever it is.
