Most Real Estate blogs I find don’t really have a personal element to them, it’s all Real Estate all the time. The same can be said for real estate investing courses or how to books. The very best books and blogs seem to get you emotionally involved in some way shape or form. For me, those authors who put a little of themselves out there in the open and intertwine personal experiences into their content are the books and blogs that I remember most and the ones I want to read.
This post is not exactly me intertwining my personal stories into my real estate investing world but I thought it would be fun to throw out 25 things that you guys and girls may not know about me. I payed no attention to order or detail, they are just the first 25 things that popped into my head.
