The Benefits of Starting a Real Estate Meetup by Matthew Thomas

Apr 27, 2019

When ADPI asked me to write a Blog post about starting a meetup I was quick to accept. I thought “what an opportunity to encourage others to take control of their Real Estate Investing (REI) futures no matter where they are at in their journey to financial freedom”. I, like many of you, am brand new to REI, but I am extremely motivated to grow and learn. My hunger for knowledge and desire to break free from my self-doubts and comfort zone drove me to begin my own meetup.

 

I didn’t start out with the intentions to start a meetup. In fact, I was extremely nervous.

I bought tickets to attended Rod Khleif’s Multifamily Bootcamp event in January based on the recommendation of my buddy Eric Upchurch.

Today's episode is absolutely amazing, so I'm not going to take too much time to get there… but I want to give a quick thanks and a shout out to all those who came to our first military house hacking seminar on Friday.  It was absolutely amazing what a blast there was so much, so much learned, I think, by all there and it was a good time.
