Advice to New People: First, learn how to control the money. Once you learn how to control the money, you will have a very valuable skill to others that already know how to find the deals, operate them etc. This will put you in better alignment with an experienced operator's objectives. Do not wear all the hats. Partner with someone that already has a track record.
