Welcome to the first Rookie Reply episode of the Rookie podcast! We’ll be taking questions from Facebook, Instagram, the BiggerPockets forums, and maybe even the Rookie Request Line (Call us at 1-888-5-ROOKIE).

This week’s question comes from Trevor on the Real Estate Rookie Group on Facebook. Trevor is asking: What was the hardest part of getting started? What helped you overcome that obstacle, and how do you mitigate analysis paralysis?

This is a question we often get, so it’s perfect for the first Rookie Reply show. Here are some suggestions:

See the first deal as a learning opportunity
Don’t let it become emotional
Verify your data and numbers
Have another exit strategy
Get an accountability partner
And more in the episode…

If you want Ashley and Tony to answer a real estate question, you can post in the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group!
