Google "real estate investor" in your town or "real estate investment club". If you find an investor who you admire, ask them if they accept mentees. They might put you to work, but you may not make any money at the outset... this is ok. The knowledge you get from seeing how they run their business would be invaluable. If it's a RE club, go to a meeting and meet people. Dress nicely, like slacks and a shirt and tie and a coat, instead of just jeans and a t-shirt. Ask around who are the big-time investors around here, and see if they're open to taking on a mentee.
