We have pretty much gone it alone so far, in the short time we have been on PC we have learned quite a lot and it has allowed is to refine our plan. Also going to one of the meet up's provided us a wealth of knowledge. The next step for us is building a reliable team for purchases into the future, we haven't exactly been blown away by the services of conveyancers, brokers etc. in the past (haven't used any from PC yet) Is it important to have a mentor? We have sought the advice of a few successful investors outside PC but in all honesty most weren't interested in giving on-going advice/keeping up to date with what stage we were at.
