It also (IMHO) explained that you have to accept the fact that everything has some level of risk. The rewards are greater, the higher the risk. Many wealthy people failed numerous times before "making it" - one example is Mr. Hershey, you know, Hershey's Chocolate??? He failed both in NYC and Philadelphia before "making it" in Hershey, PA.

Funny that you mention Hershey as that is where we spent our vacation and where I read RDPD.

For me, the book did raise my interest in the possibility of using real estate as a means of increasing my cashflow. However, at the present time I do not know enough about the real estate industry and am in a learning process.

How familiar were you with real estate before beginning your process? Are you only investing in properties in your area or all around? If I am not mistaken, I thought you had packed up in an RV and were traveling around the country. Are you scouting out properties in different areas? Or do I have you confused with someone else?

Are there any boards here at the Fool about investing in real estate? At this point I am like a sponge and am trying to soak in as much as I can to make an informed decision on whether or not the risks are prudent for me.
