3 Key Points:

  1. Having an investing partner who has different skill sets and making the right connections would help with complementing your own skill set.
  2. Managing 19 parks or 140 parks makes little difference and takes the same amount of time, thus it's ideal to scale up to optimize potential income flow.
  3. Automated systems make it easier to manage these investments as it allows you to focus on other aspects such as communication.
