Tristen shares his advice on how to get started. He believes that a beginner needs training. He thinks that you can buy every book, course, video tape, audio tape, CD, DVD, boot camp or seminar out there but they will all leave you with questions because they never give all the information you need to move forward on your own. Your success depends on the hands you shake, the people you meet and the coaching you receive. To become wealthy through real estate you need to work with an experienced trainer.
