I’m interested in joining the real estate industry from an unusual angle, and I’m asking around for insight and guidance.
For the last few years I’ve been trying to reconcile my long term goals into a logical sequence of events, but I’m afraid my planning is not without a share of errors, and ones no less compounded by the hopeful perspective of youth. I followed the credence of hard work and discipline by seeking to acquire a Bsc. in life sciences without much intention to pursue a career in that domain. I put great value into what interdisciplinary knowledge a Bsc. in Biology would yield in finance along with the strong foundations analytical skills that it would inevitably provide.
I have since graduated, and six months out of university have initiated the process of becoming a Paramedic in the oil fields where a six figure income would help seed my investments. I wish to invest as a career and be involved in the development of real estate having been hooked by the creative side of investing years ago. However, I’m beginning to second guess my latest venture amid concerns that it too closely mirrors my motivations to acquire a Bsc. for the reward of secondary benefits. Should I pursue capital at the expense of relevant experience as a six figure paramedic, or set about making myself an attractive candidate for hire at a company relevant to my goals where I could develop industry knowledge to help ensure success. I’d be very interested in any advice you have to give.
